Rocks are hard objects we don’t think of as bendable in any sense of the word, and yet Spanish artist José Manuel Castro López has found a way to manipulate stone so that it appears soft and pliable.

Simply looking at his work makes you question everything you think you know about rocks.
Here are a few photos from our recent trip to Balmoral Castle and gardens. We spent a week on the estate, stopping at one of the cottages that are available to rent. Photos are a mix of DSLR and camera phone, hope you enjoy them.
Here are a selection of photographs taken using my Android phone camera on our recent trip to Singapore. I highly recommend visiting Singapore, it’s a beautiful place, packed with unbelievable architecture, perfectly complimented with nature. They seem to have a good mix of natural and man-made beauty, as well as a good balance of cultural mixes.
You can find out more about Singapore at Wikipedia.
