Week 118

Diminutive

Taking photos from this angle…

makes a photographer feel…

diminutive.

 

From the second level of the Eiffel Tower

this roof top looks rather large

with the lens on full zoom.

Reducing the zoom and the same roof top

almost disappears into the city of Paris.

 

Think the Eiffel Tower at 324 metres (1,063 feet) is tall?

Wait until you visit Dubai’s the Burj Khalifa.

At 828 metres (2,717 feet), the Burj Khalifa

is the tallest building in the world.

 

It is taller than two Empire State Buildings

and is nearly 700 feet taller than the Shanghai Tower,

the current second-tallest building.

Even on a hazy day it still made many…

of Dubai’s skyscrapers appear tiny.

Travel Theme-Love

~~~~~

My

Love

Travel Theme.

The first ‘love’ symbol I thought of…

was our Salzburg Christmas decoration.

 

 Then came the city of love and…

 

a few of its iconic sights.

 However, this was the only couple showing

any signs of public affection.

I fell in love the I Love Paris shop because

it was the only place I could purchase

any clothing which would fit me.

Now it’s just a matter of wearing out

other clothes so I can wear my

I Love Paris windcheater.

THURSDAY’S SPECIAL-Sequence

Sequence


  According to the Free Online Dictionary

‘sequence’ has the following definitions;

1. A following of one thing after another; succession.

2. An order of succession; an arrangement.

3. A related or continuous series.

I think most of these photos demonstrate

one or more of those definitions.

I commenced at the Palace of Versailles…

for my photos for his week and could not get away.

 

Even lines which seemed odd… 

 

were arranged in order.

 

    Most of these photos…

depict but a small part… 


of the Palace… 

and its gardens…

 

One need more time than we had

to thoroughly explore the gardens.

And I think his maybe as close as we came

to seeing this section of the garden.

Travel Theme-Near

My

Near

Travel Theme.

~~~~~

As we entered Paris last year…

even a shot through the coach window

was worth capturing.

 

 However, the near we came…

to the Eiffel Tower

 

the more awesome it looked.

We were in Paris!

THURSDAY’S SPECIAL-Over

The last group activity we undertook in Paris

was a cruise on the River Seine.

The Eiffel Tower was lit up as we

commenced our cruise…

However, when we returned it had

changed colours and the white lights

were bidding us goodbye.

Our time in Paris was over.

Thursday’s Special: Over

Travel Theme-Abroad

~~~~~

My

Abroad

Travel Theme.

~~~~~

Travelling to Europe last year gave us the

opportunity to see and or visit many places

we had read about or seen only as movie sets. 

Both of us had, not long before departure,

finished reading a book titled,

“I, Mona Lisa’ which was set in Florence.

The Medici family were the main characters,

The story was a fictional depiction of how,

and why, the Mona Lisa may have come to be painted.

 

The Arc de Triomphe and the Champs Elysees 

are two well known landmarks of Paris.

 This is one of the fountains inside

Dubai’s Burj Al Arab.

 

We had planned on partaking of High Tea at

the Burj Al Arab in 2013.

Unfortunately our plans had to change.

  It was, however, a 7 star experience worth waiting for.
