After our coldest February day in twelve years

on Sunday…

ferris-wheel_geelong_0225

it was a good excuse to run some

early morning errands, with camera in hand.

After a gloomy Sunday, Monday’s sunrise

was a non-event due to cloud cover.

However when the sun did break through it lit up some…

Although not much surf around last Friday…

bells_beach_torquay_0186

there were more surfers than usual.

At least when I have visited.

bells_beach_torquay_0212

Most surfers were getting a…

decent ride when they caught a wave, small as they were.

bells_beach_torquay_0205

Even found some decent subject matter closer

to me and not moving  as much…

bells_beach_torquay_0206

which does, I think look better in colour.

Oh! Well!

Cunningham Pier around 1800 on Saturday evening.

The sun was getting lower and reflecting nicely

off the Pier and boats.

Some of yesterday’s in Black and White…not all.

A big thank you to Google today.

I decided to search for La Place and found one

in Melbourne (Victoria)

but decided the one I had visited

 was situated in

Hazeldonk in the Netherlands.

la_place_0324

A fairly universal sign as to what

is available at La Place.

la_place_0317

Colour or BW…these still look yummy.

la_place_0319

Some of the fare…even healthy.

la_place_0325

After all the well-tended and bright flowers

we had seen in London and Brugge,

it was nice to see some hydrangea.

While a bit past their best.

Kind of reminded me of home!

la_place_0322

After using amenities available,

morning tea/coffee or otherwise, it was…

brugge-amsterdam_0338

 back on the coach and Amsterdam…

here we come!

Although a majority of the images

were taken as we drove past,

paris_arc_de_triomphe_0012

they were our first sightings…

of some well known Paris land marks.
paris_0023

Of course I took some photos…

paris_0053

just because I could.

paris_0108

As the crow flies Melbourne is 16,781 km from Paris.

Considering we had arrived here via

a very circuitous route

I would have loved to have made it to

the top of the Eiffel Tower.

Such was not to be the case due to time constraints

and crowds of tourists!! 🙂

A bridge over the Salach River,

in Salzburg, Austria.

salzburg_locks_0757

 A modern pedestrian bridge known as the Makartsteg…

salzburg_locks_0756

It attracts lovers, locks and…

salzburg_locks_0762

photographers.

Last year Melbourne (Victoria, Australia) City Council

removed all the locks from a similar bridge

over the Yarra River.

The reason being that the weight of the locks

was posing a safety hazard.

I wonder how often this one is cleared?
