Weekly Photo Challenge-Wish

 

~~~~~

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Wish

~~~~~

Three wishes.

I wish I could have seen this Bridge, however I guess there

were many who wished they had not

been so close or walked across it.

This was as close to Ponte Vecchio as I could get.

Se near …yet so far.

 

Finally, we had hoped to go to the top of the Eiffel Tower.

Crowds and time did not  permit.

We had to be content with the second level.

The honeymooners on our trip had dinner at the top

while the rest of us enjoyed ringside seats at The Moulin Rouge.

One Word Photo Challenge-Fabricated

~~~~~

Fabricated.

Many buildings, both houses and sheds were made from

natural ‘bluestone’, which is actually grey in colour.


This stone originated in lava flows from now extinct volcanoes

which was hewn into rectangular blocks.

These varied from easy to lift to long blocks of stone

requiring two or more men to lift them.

Holding the stones in place is a type of mortar made

from what appears to be mud and not much else.

My Grandfather, and father had an old shearing shed

on their property similar to his and the mortar appeared

to be as described.
