Night shots from a variety of places.

Big Ben and Parliament House

from the London Eye

Arras Bell Tower and Place des Heros

Arras,

France

Our night cruise on the River Seine

gave us a multitude of river-side parties…

annd a different perspective

of the Eiffel Tower.

The drive back to our hotel took us past

the Arc de Triomphe…

…and also city lights.

After arriving in Dubai at 0400,

we had a quiet day…

…prior to  boarding a Dhow for a…

…Dubai Creek Dinner Cruise.

Just a few colourful images…

…from our Diner Cruise on…

…Dubai Creek.

Night two saw us on a desert safari and dinner,

with entertainment provided by a fire dancer…

…and a belly dancer.

A great time was had and if you don’t mind

sand from horizon to horizon you

will love the experience.

Me?

I’m not a fan of sand.

I am constantly reminded of this market because

I purchased a pendant for MGW to wear to work.

It must have received the tick of approval

as it is still a regular.

 

Nectarines and strawberries…two of my favourites.

We often hear of time machines which

are designed to transport us back

or forward in time. 

These machines only exist in our minds,

novels and movies such as the

Back to the Future series.

Yet all round are…

…time measuring machines

Big ones on Bell Towers…

…much smaller versions to hag on a kitchen wall…

…and finally, Melbourne’s famous landmark

The Flinders Street Station clocks.

Let’s meet under the clocks

was an oft used phrase of

Melbournians and visitors alike.

A few decades ago the analogue clock faces

were going to be replaced by their digital cousins.

This caused much discontent in Melbourne

that a compromise was reached.

These analog faces are now digitally powered.

sweet

having the pleasant taste characteristic of
sugar or honey; not salt, sour, or bitter.

Place des Héros,

Arras,

France.

When I captured these images…

 

 

…my mouth watered.

Three years on and my sweet tooth

is activated just the same.

WeeklyPrompts-PC-Farmers-Markets

 

~

While in Arras (France) in 2017…

…I happened across its Saturday market.

I’m not sure if all products for sale could be

declared as farmers produce…

…so therefore not certain…

 

…if it was a Farmer’s Market.

 

However, it is…

~~~~~

the only market which I have photos of and… 

 

  …therefore, the only market which

 comes close to fitting this challenge.
