Odd Ball

Week 43, 2016

~~~~~

I thought this a rather odd addition to the…

balloon_0979

 French countryside.

Had it had an untimely landing

or it is just beginning to rise?

Two questions among others, to which

we will never know the answer as two blinks

and it was again out of sight.

I hope this is not a repost…my internet is

operating far too slowly to search for it.  

Apologies if it is.

The view over Lake Lucerne from…

 Mt Rigi (nearly 1,800 metres, or 5,897 ft high)…

puts the volcanic cones dotting

 Victoria’s Western Plains

into perspective.

Among others Mt Warrnambool (216 metres or 709 ft high)…

mt_elephant_0033and Mt Elephant (240-metre-high 790 ft)

are only hills when compared to the Swiss Alps

and many other Alpine regions throughout the world.

Still I like my mini mountains 🙂

Cee’s

Black and White Challenge:

Looking through a Window.

~~~~~

MGW first briefly sighted this scene

as we passed by in our coach.

nice-memorial_0558It wasn’t until we had some free time that we

stumbled upon it again and discovered it to be a memorial…

nice-memorial_0566

for those who suffered in the

July 14, 2016, terrorist attack

on Promenade des Anglais,

some two months earlier.

nice-memorial_0559

It was a rather sobering site and gave us an insight…

nice-memorial_0561

to the feelings and reactions of many people.

We only have happy memories of Nice…with

just a peep at its sadder side.
