Weekly Photo Challenge-Wish

 

~~~~~

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Wish

~~~~~

Three wishes.

I wish I could have seen this Bridge, however I guess there

were many who wished they had not

been so close or walked across it.

This was as close to Ponte Vecchio as I could get.

Se near …yet so far.

 

Finally, we had hoped to go to the top of the Eiffel Tower.

Crowds and time did not  permit.

We had to be content with the second level.

The honeymooners on our trip had dinner at the top

while the rest of us enjoyed ringside seats at The Moulin Rouge.

Week 76

Golden

During our travels through Europe last year…

versailles_palace_0303

we (and I mean all of us) could not get over how much

gold or gold paint was adorning the palaces we visited.

From our first look through the gates to…

versailles_palace_0228

these figures surrounding a large fountain…

versailles_palace_0235

the colour of gold was everywhere.

Weekly Photo Challenge-A-Good-Match

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

A Good Match

~~~~~

A mill-pond sea…
nice_rivera_0537

a speed boat, and…

nice_rivera_0539

a para glider.

What more could you ask for on the French Riviera.

Not sure if this fits this week’s challenge,

but it is certainly complementary parking.

Cars are not allowed to park a 90 degrees Down Under,

unless all are similarly parked,

and I have had small cars like these try

to parallel park in into a much too small space in front of me.

Tuesday’s Black and Whites in colour.

 many of the buildings probably look better in BW.

I think we were all excited to get out of the coach

for this photo opportunity.

Black and White Tuesday

 January 17, 2017

~~~~~

Although a majority of the images

were taken as we drove past,

paris_arc_de_triomphe_0012

they were our first sightings…

paris_0109

of some well known Paris land marks.

Of course I took some photos…

paris_0053

just because I could.

paris_0108

As the crow flies Melbourne is 16,781 km from Paris.

Considering we had arrived here via

a very circuitous route

I would have loved to have made it to

the top of the Eiffel Tower.

Such was not to be the case due to time constraints

and crowds of tourists!! 🙂
