Word-of-Day-Challenge-Barrage

~~~~

barrage
noun
“his forces launched an artillery barrage on the city”

Obviously not a photo which I have taken,

however, one which has been in my possession

for a long time, because…

…it depicts my Grandfather in his role,

during World War I,

near Ypres.

Records show he was active along

the entire Western Front and therefore

the catalyst behind my visit to Arras in 2017.

A busker in Brugge, or some very brief

tourist entertainment…this young lady was very competent..

at least to my ear. 🙂

~~~~~

A Melbourne busker.

Another year, another street

but still busking in Melbourne.

 

Fingers too old to play my guitar I’m afraid

Bicycles and Motorcycles

We first noticed the high usage of bicycles in Brugge.    

While in Amsterdam the bicycle flat

provides free parking for 2,500 bicycles.

The Cadel Evans January Road Race in Geelong’s suburbs.

The Peloton.

Motorcycles and shouldered television cameras

beaming the action to the world.

Riders look relaxed but are travelling

at a phenomenal speed.

Doors and Doorways

Church door, Geelong.

 

Could be Brugge.  Only a guess.

Geelong…

and again Geelong.

An arch or doorway to a market square

in Brugge, Belgium.

After hearing talk of Menin Gate, at Ypres…

it was a privilege to visit  last year.

This could be my favourite Belgium

doorway to a city.
