Underneath the Swimming Pool • Mid-Week Monochrome #30 (a.k.a. MWM) is the entry into the challenge from Brashley Photography. It was shot underneath an art installation with a glass bottom. Part of the excellent collection of Museum Voorlinden in Wassenaar, the Netherlands.
The Voorlinden website reads: ‘Leandro Erlich designed his Swimming Pool especially for Voorlinden. He gave his work all the characteristics of a real swimming pool, including the recognizable pool blue on the walls, the typical lamps and even a real stairway through which you seem to be able to descend. And yet as a visitor you can walk on the bottom without getting wet. Leandro frequently plays with the eye. He transforms everyday spaces into absurd situations, to creating an experience that makes the viewer think about the reality around him. The work only really functions in its use by the public. Without people, according to the artist, the work is not complete.’

This photo, Sacrilege, of an abandoned VW Beetle is the entry into the challenge from Brashley Photography, Mid-Week Monochrome. A.k.a. MWM #27.
Photographed this abandoned VW Beetle in Al-Maadi, Cairo, Egypt. Judging by the license plate it was registered in the mid 70s in the Netherlands before it was presumably driven to Cairo and then abandoned. Sacrilege if you ask me…
This photo of the Salvador Dali House is the entry into the challenge from Brashley Photography, Mid-Week Monochrome. A.k.a. MWM #26.
This remarkable house, turned into a museum lies by the sea in Cadaquès, Catalunia, Spain. But it certainly isn’t the only sign of Dali, who is omnipresent in this village that he tried to save from relentless tourism.
