Posted in response to the Daily Post weekly photo challenge. This week’s theme ‘Intricate‘
Well, I was spoilt for choice with this topic. First of all I thought of some of the lovely patterns on the buildings in Morocco, then I thought about taking some pics of the beautiful tablecloth that my mother-in-law spent years embroidering for me, but then, I remembered China. The beautiful buildings there are all covered in gorgeous decoration one way or another, but I thought these roof details that we saw at the Temple of Heaven in Beijing just about take the biscuit as far as intricacy goes. What do you think??
They do ‘take the biscuit’! (Thank you for using that phrase…the only other time I’ve heard it is in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Joseph”. 🙂 )
He hee.. I didn’t know that he’d used that. It’s a very familiar phrase here! 😀
“His astounding clothing took the biscuit / quite the smoothest person in the district…” Yup. Joseph and the Coat.
Ah ha! Good old Tim Rice and his rhymes!!
So beautiful, all that work is amazing.
Incredible isn’t it! And to think I can’t be bothered to wallpaper our front room! 😀
