Word-of-Day-Challenge-Oppulent

~~~~~

opulent

ostentatiously costly and luxurious.

Whilst in Europe we visited…

…several places similar to Versailles Palace.

Our universal comment was that with

this amount of opulence, it was…


…no wonder there had been a revolution.

Many moons ago John Denver sang of

the serenity of a clear blue mountain lake’

in the Colorado Rocky Mountains.

The only thing in common with those lyrics

and this image is the word serenity.

However, I like this  image/scene and

I love Rocky Mountain High and of have

An Evening with John Denver

playing while I am blogging.

 

 

A Corio Bay sunrise a few years ago.

 

The serenity of a Botswana sunset…

…and sunrise.

Finally, a blue hour image of Geelong’s

Western Beach area.

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Exquisite

~~~~~

~~~~

Exquisite is the only  way to  describe the interior of

some of the European Historic places we visited.

The Palace of Versailles being one such example.

Whether the ceiling artwork, or…

 

 

…this craftsmanship fifteen to twenty feet above our heads.

Even though we had ‘priority access’

to various tourist attractions, for example, 

The Vatican City, Schonbrunn Palace

and Versailles Palace… 

I felt negotiating crowds like this,

while trying to follow a guide,

was sheer madness.

 

However as we departed and saw

the numbers waiting for access,

I learned to appreciate our priority access.

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Wonder

~~~~~

~~~~

We all came away from…

our visit to Versailles Palace…

totally in awe…

of the opulence and to a person stating…

 

that it was no wonder that there was

a revolution in France with

so much wealth belonging to so few.

On a global scale not much has changed I guess.
