I have added an escalator into

this week’s BW challenge

Escalator inside Dubai’s

Burj Al Arab.

Inside the Burj Al Arab elevator.

Included a colour version just to show the difference.

An undercover walk at Mount Sheba

Finally, our accommodation in Vienna

was at the Imperial Riding School…

…where there were some long straight walks to our rooms.

Spring colour in...

…Swanston Street


Victoria, Australia.







an eight-legged predatory arachnid with an unsegmented body
consisting of a fused head and thorax and a rounded abdomen.
Spiders have fangs which inject poison into their prey,
and most kinds spin webs in which to capture insects.


Good morning….

…time for breakfast.





trip or momentarily lose one’s balance;
almost fall.

In late July I found this piece of machinery.

Part of an old stone crusher.

Gingerly following my guide up through the wet spots,

and there were plenty, I found myself standing

on the slope just above my signature in his photo.

My right foot slipped a tad,

my right knee buckle (in sympathy)

and before I knew it I was falling.

Thte incident to only a few seconds

before I was on the ground

beside the concrete block with a few bruises

and a very bruised ego.

Probably not really a ‘stumble’.

More like a stumble without the ‘s’.

I may be a bit off the mark this week.

However, these are two two photos each of which

has been shown here in its original state

and after I had played around editing it.

I had just installed a copy of Photoshop Elements

on my computer and was learning how to use it…still am.

On the outskirts of Geelong there is an old paper mill.

This is the interior of one building straight out of camera.

After it was brightened it look a bit over exposed..

…so today I tried to quieten the sunshine a bit.

For the few minutes spent working on this today

I think it is probably the pick as long

as the original is not around


I thought this image was spoiled by all

the ‘moderns‘ in the background.

That is; car, fence and sign

A few hours of tedious work and this was my posted result.
