THEME DAY YELLOW - K IS FOR KERRIN

The long and winding staircase leading me to ..... Kerrin?

April Theme Day Yellow

Abc this week if brought to you by the letter K


Two themes in one again and blogger is being a pain. Something to do with meta tags on the code. Anyway. No daffodils, sunsets, or yellow houses. Wanted something a little obtuse on the eye. So here for your veiwing pleasure/discomfort the library/Town hall steps. Not really yellow a trick of the sunlight. No filters, no post production and no I can't spend all day telling you how to get this image. Blogger won't let me it's being a blue meanie.


Manx words again K is for Kerrin which is pane

Kerrin glonney - pane of glass
Kerrin unnaig - window pane


It should really be pain, as it was a "pain in the neck to get this image." Just for fun though and a little optical enigma. Literally a library image. So use your illusion this April Fool's day and check out those other yellow perils or mellow yellows at........

Greato to combo and you're right that blogger can be a pain which is why I moved to workpress and then found a way to move the posts easily too...

Kris said...

Now this one is a ripper.

Brian Miller said...

Tim said...

I never know when you are joshing. All the time. I like this. It is many layers.

magiceye said...

cool combo well captured!

Tash said...

Always so surprising - a really unusual shot for you. Amazing what the right camera setting and sunlight will do - when you know how to do it!
Gorgeous, interesting Yellow & K! congrats on getting 2 in 1.

Sally said...

I am a stranger looking for TT lodgings. I found you through Motorcyle Net on a recommendation. Stunning TT photographs. Any news on homestay would be appreciated. Excellent Isle of Man blog. I will be back. I'm 99,723.

I liked your phrase a blue meanie so I Googled the phrase and sure enough there was an entry on Wikipedia ... Also, as normal your photo is very impressive and to catch this much yellow via a trick of the sunlight.

Si said...

Blue meanies, yellow submarine. I like this image it is different to your nature images, harder edged.

Lew said...

A little contorting of the torso to get this shot! 266 more to 100K.

Karen said...

I like it.. I really like it.. good choice for the Yellow and the "K"..
KKKKKeep it up.. :-)

Ann said...

Very clever combination of themes.

Jacob said...

Even if I didn't love staircases (and photograph them every chance I get) I would love this photo. The deeper yellow radiates warmth, and yet, there's an element of danger with that staircase winding its way skyward.

Good tension.

JY said...

I love this staircase!!
The angle is quite unique of its own too...makes me pay more attention to it....

Happy Theme Day!!

Virginia said...

WOW, love that pop of yellow today B. My entry is pretty predictable but I was counting on you to kick it outta da park!

i'm giving you the Kreativ blogger award. Congrats and happy theme day!

Chuck Pefley said...

I should think the long and winding yellow staircase must lead to Dorothy's yellow brick road -:)

In case I'm being too obscure, I refer to the Wizard of Oz.

Julie ScottsdaleDailyPhoto.com said...

Leslie: said...

A magical photo! Just perfect for the day! :D

White Oleander said...

photowannabe said...

This one gave me a smile. Congratulations on so many visitors. That's amazing.

Olivier said...

bel angle de vue, et puis tout ce jaune dans ce b√Ętiment, c'est impressionnant (pas besoin de soleil ;o) ).

nice angle, and then everything in that yellow building is impressive (no need of sun ;o)).

Carolina said...

Although there is a lot of metal and concrete in this picture, the colour makes it feel really nice and warm and sunny. You clever girl!
Almost 100.000 visitors! Wow!
(and I'm truly honoured to share your sense of humour. Aren't we lovely? hehe)

naturglede said...

Realy spesial photho with the metal and the yellow. Have a fun abc:)

mrsnesbitt said...

valeria said...

Lovely YELLOW staircase, indeed!

RuneE said...

A new word a day - that is not bad. Kerrin has celtic sound in my ears, but the may be full of wax.

PS Thank you dor the comment - I think you'll find that a summer in Kristiansand can match many places in the UK!

Bibi said...

I love the yellow staircase. It almost makes me dizzy just looking at it! Happy theme day.

Kim said...

K is my letter, my husband's too. I adore stair cases and you've captured a great one for our theme day. Your friend Kim, otherwise known as #99818! Keep going, B.!

Ben said...

Nice and bright.
Guess what. This just reminds me I'm living in the yellow house. Yes, my house is painted low scene special effect yellow which is called Tuscan and some white particle in the formula. It was completely out of my mind...

Laurie said...

You clever girl! And what a shot. It's spectacular.

Elisabeth's bright side said...

A very inventive and inspirational shot. Fun to see.

B Squared said...

of course I had to regale you with a bad pun. it's my job as an April Fool.

the buddhess said...

Beautiful yellow staircase and i just love it. Looks bright.

Susie of Arabia said...

Does the yellow cast have anything to do with the fluorescent light? It really does look like it's painted yellow! Congrats on your 100,000th visitor - wow!

Clare said...

What a stunning piece of architecture :)

Mojo said...

Cool shot, even if it is a bit disorienting at first. According to the hit counter I'm 99,895. But I suppose I could keep refreshing the page until I got to 100K.

Gordon said...

You have all angles covered here; an interesting perspective on K 'and' yellow.

cieldequimper said...

Very nice shot! It's a pretty yellow too!

Miss_Yves said...

99904 is my visitor number .Great angle of view.
I suppose that April fool is , in French, 1er avril !

Shantaram said...

For some reason, the first thought when I saw the photo was about 'Famous Five'... and then that almost-Kirrin word!

Beautiful shot!

Mo said...

You always do such amazing things with the very ordinary.

Bergson said...

a great shot for this theme day

Lisa Wilson said...

I like the angle you took of this nice staircase! I can't imagine doing 2 themes at once. Yellow was hard enough.

Janie said...

Great yellow color, and I like the new word for pain/pane.

jay said...

Oooh, I like the yellow picture - but I love the Manx words! They sound so quaint! I hope that isn't insulting to the Manx people, it's not meant to be.

I just love words.

Marie-Noyale said...

The yellow brick road leading to the long winding yellow staircase...
I am not the 100.000 unfortunately!!!

Jon said...

I am close but no cigar. Spooky spiralling image.

Torrey said...

LOVE the yellow staircase. Nice one!

Pat - Arkansas said...

A very interesting "K" Babooshka. Intriguing photo.

Ham said...

Still another 25 to go.....

Petrea said...

It's a delight, Babooshka, however you did it.

Mo said...

IT's ME!!! I won. 100,000. Congratulations Ms Popular!

Babooshka said...

Oh Mo, I'm so glad. You got to have a prize.

Felicia said...

Hi Babooshka, you are insanely popular and I see why! This staircase is eye popping and you are quite the photographer if it is really not yellow!

Hilda said...

Fantastic! If you didn't say so, I really would've thought the stairwell was yellow! Great theme day post!

Small City Scenes said...

Help I've fallen down the 'yellow' staircase. LOL MB

JM said...

Great composition, Babooshka! Love the twisted angle.
