Word-of-Day-Challenge-Effigy

~~~~~

Wouldn’t call this a statue, but not  sure it is an  effigy either.

I think anyone found destroying these birds would be frowned upon.

They can be found at the top of

Grouse Mountain,

Vancouver,

Canada.

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.

One Word Photo Challenge-Scale

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.
