Photo101(14): Swarms of Red, White and Blue.

IMG_2485.JPGI was having a lovely coffee break looking through all the posts from today and came across today’s brief. I wondered what on earth I would use when I looked up and saw the beautiful pattern of clouds all around me.

I am at QEII Hospital today, visiting customers and talking about molecular biology, genetics and serology. The two buildings that I am visiting are side-by-side. One is PP block and it is covered in images of platelets (blood cells that stop you from bleeding). This is my header image – I like how the clouds are swarming in the sky and the platelets are swarming all over the building.

The other is the Harry Perkins Institute which is a new centre for medical research in Perth. The floor-to-ceiling, tinted glass windows reflect the sky in all her glory – the clouds swarming in the sky seem to swarm the building as well.

Usually, I am working all day and head out to take photos in the early evening and post around 11pm – 12 hours from now, so I am super-early today. There is a fabulous coffee shop at the bottom of the Harry Perkins Institute. It’s called “coffee anatomy”. Actually here is my heart-starting breakfast:

So lucky to be in this spot at just the right time. A few minutes later, the clouds had blown together and they sky is now mostly white.

By the way, I am totally on the iPhone6 today. Photos taken with the iPhone (first time in this challenge that I haven’t used my camera – eek!), edited on the iPhone and post written on the iPhone app.

Have a glorious day 14, wherever you may be.
