One-Word-Sunday-Homonym

~~~~~

My homonym word

is BANK.

Taken on the BANK of the

Wimmera River at Horsham,

Victoria.


On the bank of the River Seine

in Paris, France.

Apologies for the quality of my

Challenger Bank photo.

Among Melbourne’s skyline it was

only about 3-4 millimetres wide

in the original.

 

Again a tight crop in a bigger photo.

The People’s Bank

in Beaune,

France.

We/I have to stay with the

English version of BANK as the

French versions are totally different.

Berge de rivière…river bank

and

Banque populaire…People’s Bank

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Roofs

~~~~~

 

Roofs from everywhere.

Beginning with a Carousel roof

in Beaune, France.

 

Still in Beaune a Band Rotunda.

Another Beaune image

taken through window,

I suspect.

Moving on to Paris and

this image captured from

the Eiffel Tower.

Sadly I also suspect that this is a section of the

Notre Dame de Paris roof

that is no more….or at least badly damaged.

The roof/ceiling of Platform 9 and 3/4.

If you are a Harry Potter fan you will

know that this can be found in

London’s King’s Cross Station.

Somewhat closer to home

an Arcade roof in Melbourne

Back in Geelong, the slate roof of a Church.

I commenced  with a Carousel an now

I will end with another,

The Geelong Carousel.

Many years ago we named the

foreground artwork, ‘The Sharks Teeth’

Too many ‘Jaws’ movies I think.

Only found out this year that

they are actually sailing boats.

Even though I have seen this type of boat

on the Bay several times there was no connection

I think they always will be the ‘Sharks Teeth’  🙂

Geelong Street art.

Ceiling art in Florence.

Butchart Gardens…

Vancouver Island

Canada.

Bourke Street

Melbourne, Victoria.

Somewhere in the French Countryside.

This may say something about my taste in art,

but it is  one of my favourite images.

A one off, never, to be captured again image

of a spider web in a canola crop a few years ago.

MGW doe not share my enthusiasm.

It can even be turned into bright, stronger colours

if that is your taste.

This was my first piece of photography art.

The now defunct Weekly Photo Challenge

wanted a CD cover design.

It interested it is simply a shot of water in Corio Bay.

And I love the mood in these two images…

…of Melbourne, last week.
