The Eden Project in Cornwall, UK by CarlyDraws

The Eden Project is a bunch of huge greenhouse-dome things in Cornwall, that have amazing rainforests and all sorts of cool plants and sculptures inside. They sit in a hollow in the hills, and at night they glow gently like giant fireflies.

Hong Kong Harbour by CarlyDraws

One of my favourite parts of Hong Kong was the skyline. The angular shapes of the skyscrapers contrast against the rolling mountains behind, and the clouds pile up behind the peak. This is a condensed version of the skyline as seen from a boat ride around the harbour, with all my favourite bits in it!

Po Fook Memorial Hall, Hong Kong, China by CarlyDraws


Read More...

This is Po Fook Ancestral Halls / memorial halls (also sometimes known as Bao Fook). It is a large, modern-ish burial ground near the 10,000 Buddha temple in the Sha Tin area of Hong Kong. Confused tourists often end up here whilst trying to find the 10,000 Buddha temple, which has a small entrance a little bit further down the road. However this place is worth a look anyway, with a big jumble of red and white traditional style buildings which pile up on several layers around a big pagoda in the middle. There is also some really peaceful gardens by the base of the temple full of turtles lazing in the sun.

Cromer Beach, UK by CarlyDraws


Read More...

Cromer has a great stony, sandy beach that lies in a big strip down the coast. The sea and sky change all the time from clear to overcast. I like to wander up and down the beach, and look at the shape of the pier against the waves.
