Another week has gone by and Friday is here again; it’s been a good week at Big Skies Jewellery, I hope it has been for you too.

This week’s Friday Photo was taken looking over the very aptly named, Lincoln Memorial Reflection Pool towards the Washington Monument in Washington, D.C.   The monument, made of  marble, granite, and  bluestone gneiss, is both the world’s tallest stone structure and the world’s tallest obelisk, standing exactly 555 feet 5 and 1/8 inches (169.294 m).

So here it is, a cool picture to make you smile…….just because hey, it’s Friday!

This week: Washington Monument and Lincoln Memorial Reflection Pool – Washington, D.C.

Whenever I look at this photo it always reminds of the film Forrest Gump; the part where Forrest runs through the reflection pool to get to his sweetheart.

Just Because It’s Friday Photo…..

As a jewellery artist I take a lot of inspiration from what I see when I am travelling.  Last year we were lucky enough to visit Italy – the history, architecture, art, food, shopping, scenery, people ….it was all amazing!

This week’s cool picture is of the Leaning Tower of Pisa – but not the usual view, this was taken at the base looking straight (albeit whilst I was leaning over!) up the tower.  So here it is, a cool picture to make you smile…….just because hey, it’s Friday!

As a jewellery artist I am constantly inspired by what I see.  A lot of my inspiration comes from the natural world around me – and having just come back from a week in the African bush, relaxing with friends and family, I am feeling both inspired and rejuvenated.

This week’s cool pictures were taken at Marrick Safari in Kimberley  – a wonderful place to relax and unwind in a tranquil bush setting (and with awesome food!). This little chap is one of family at Marrick, and is just the cutest thing.  He even came on a trek through the bush  – us, 3 dogs and a meerkat!    

I couldn’t decide which photo to share, so I chose two 🙂  So here we are, two cool pictures to make you smile…….just because hey, it’s Friday!

This week: Meerkat  at Marrick Safari, Kimberley, South Africa.

As a jewellery artist I am constantly inspired by what I see.  One of the things that inspires me most is traveling. 

My favourite city in the whole world is New York City.  New York is just awesome, it has a vibe all of its own; there’s something about it that just keeps pulling us back every time we visit America.  This week’s photo was taken from the Empire State Building, looking down the street towards Central Park.  I love all the yellow cabs dotted along the road.

So here it isa cool photo to make you smile…….just because hey it’s Friday!

This week: New York City as seen from the Empire State Building:
