rosette

** a rose-shaped decoration, typically made of ribbon, worn by supporters of a sports team or political party
or awarded as a prize.
**an object or arrangement resembling a rose.
~~~~~

I don’t have one picture which comes

under the ‘rosette’ category as in

the first interpretation of the word.

However, if one uses imagination…

 

 

…these stained glass windows…

 

may fit the second interpretation of ‘object’.

 

 

The

Rose Window

in York Minster.

 

 

I only have exterior images of

York Minster’s

Rose Window.

 

 

However, these last two from

Notre Dame de Paris…

…both fit the Rose Window category

and hopefully look a bit rosette-ish,

as well.

Cheetah at

Moholoholo Wildlife

Rehabilitation Centre,

South Africa

Not the same cheetah,

but a cheetah just the same.

And my hand came away in tact.

Eiffel Tower

Giraffe Horns

Ever wondered if an elephant had teeth.

Now you know.

The Eiffel Tower 324 metres high

appears taller than it is..

However standing at 828 metres high

Dubai’s

Burj Khalifa

dwarfs the surrounding city.

From the viewing area in the

Burj Khalifa Tower

the Dubai Mall Fountain

is barely visible.

And yet those buildings are

four or five stories high.

Burj Khalifa vs other tall structures.

FOWChallenge-Glimpse

~~~~~

~~~~~

glimpse

a momentary or partial view.

~~~~~

Many attractions in our European holiday

were mere glimpses either to time constraints

or visitor numbers.


One such glimpse was the

Louvre Museum.

 

 

This unedited image was closer to

the glimpse we viewed through

our coach window.

FOWChallenge-Avarice

~~~~~

~~~~~

avarice

extreme greed for wealth or material gain.

During our visit to…

Schonbrunn Palace…

we were told that it was known as

the Summer Cottage…

…all 1,441 rooms of it.

The ostentatious Palace and surrounds…

 

 

…all point to an avarice family…


…demonstrating total disregard for the rest of the population.

 

 

Similarly the Palace of Versailles…

…and its surrounds…

 

…and its 2300 room Palace also demonstrates

the avarice nature of its owners were

in one of France’s harshest historical periods.

Landmarks from any where

The Eiffel Tower…324 metres high.

The Tower in which Big Ben (the Bell)

resides is 96 metres high.

According too Google the

Geelong Football Club ground

is 5.1 kilometres as the crow flies.

Without the light towers, which are 73 metres high,

the ground would be difficult to spot

even from this vantage point.

***

Although I don’t have a photo,

this morrning Melbourne was laying claim to

having the tallest Southern hemisphere building.

At 388 metres high, the 108 storey

hotel and apartment building

is located in Melbourne’s

Southbank area.
