My first photo is of Mount Elephant….

a volcanic cone,

one of the many in Western Victoria.

I have never been to the top of Mt Elephant

but driven past it hundreds of times in my life.

From the top of Mt Rigi

overlooking Lake Lucerne.

from Grouse Mountain,

Vancouver, Canada.

Workers from all over…

A gondolier.

My limited knowledge of lumberjacks’ work

tells me that they actually did climb trees

as part of every day work.

Memory could be way off though.

Happy to be corrected.

Beefeater Guide Tour

Amid that crowd is a Beefeater at work

guiding visitors around

the Tower of London.

 

While in Europe each guide carried a flag of some kind. 

Trouble was there was so much to see

and dawdle over, the coloured flag

was often forgotten (by me). 

All guides were very knowledgeable but

sometimes it was just nice to walk and look

without the constant commentary.

Our favourite African guide,

planning the next day. 

Or was he offering up thanks for

a successful day just ended?

Commencing in Rome…

I think…

with statues….their names…

or history…unknown.

These, however, are wood carvings…

on top of Vancouver’s,

Grouse Mountain.

I  decided to use this image of lumberjacks

scaling poles on Vancouver’s,

Grouse Mountain.

For the record, the climber on the left

won the contest by the proverbial ‘country mile’.

He as completed his descent while his rival

has just made to the top.

This week I have decided that Sunday morning

is not the best time for completing challenges.

Why? You may ask!

If you look at the bottom of my post

you will note Patti’s blog is listed first.

Patti’s blog was the first link I clicked to

see what this week’s challenge was…and I read

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Patterns in British Columbia. 

Lucky I have just returned from that area, I thought!!!

And proceeded to look for BC patterns among my photos.

 Nearing the end of my search a little thought crept into my head.

What if I had no BC photos?

Then I had another look.

Sunday morning!!!!

Readers expecting Australian or Geelong patterns this week

will be disappointed as I was not in the frame of mind

to start again!

Please forgive me.  

Canada Place, Vancouver.

 

Vancouver somewhere…not far from the port.
