WPC – Ooh, Shiny

Weekly Photo Challenge : The question is ‘What about you: what is guaranteed to distract you? What is your “Ooh, shiny!”?’

I was having trouble with this challenge because a lot of things distract me, architecture, sea, rivers, flowers, embroidery, art, vintage stuff, birds, animals etc etc etc

I eventually chose this photo because of the building and river and also because they are both literally shiny too.
