Workers from all over…
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.
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?
I did not know that I had photos of seals
until I enlarged this photo.

with statues….their names…
These, however, are wood carvings…
on top of Vancouver’s,
I decided to use this image of lumberjacks
scaling poles on Vancouver’s,
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.
Readers expecting Australian or Geelong patterns this week
will be disappointed as I was not in the frame of mind
to start again!
