5 in 5 - January 2020 - City surprises

Welcome to '5 in 5' where on the 5th
of each month I post 5 photos that I have
taken in 5 minutes.

Wishing all my followers and fellow ‘5in5’ participants a very happy New Year! 

I love visits and how these can take unexpected and exciting turns.  Take Friday. I went on a day trip to London and had a few places in mind that I wanted to see. On our way we passed very close to The Gerkin, and I have never been up close, only seen it from a distance. But today we had time just to explore and enjoy so this was an opportunity to change that. My perfect kind of day.

 I love reflections, and the glass panels delivered!


We were about to continue on our way when my husband spotted an old church opposite. In complete contrast to the modern architecture, he suggested we take a look.  And I'm so glad we did because that's when I spotted this strange object further along..... 

We had discovered 'Sculpture in the City'.  I hadn't known about this collection of art and it led us to a number of others in the area, adding interest and an unexpected surprise to our walk.

That's what I love about days where you have time to explore. Like many others, I spend so much time going somewhere and not having time to wander or stop, so I am planning more of these days this year. We had other wonderful surprises and they will have to be other blog posts because I've already snucked in an extra photo, of the sculpture trail. 

Thank you for popping by and I hope you have good things of your own planned for the coming year. And before I go: 

as always, I invite you to join in this 5in5 monthly challenge and I hope some of you will do that. Trying a new way of doing things can spark new ideas and add interest, so here's how it works: 

1.  Choose a location.
2.  Have your camera ready.
3.  Set a mobile timer for 5 minutes.
4.  Take as many photos you can until the time is up.
5.  Choose 5 photos to download and share by using the link tool 
You have until the 25th of the month to add your photos and if you want to know more about 5in5 there are details here.

And one more thing - when you use the link tool, please click on your post title.  This will show the web address. Please right click, copy and paste this as your link.  This will take readers directly to your '5 in 5' blog page and be easier for them to find.
