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…

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!! 🙂

Weekly Photo Challenge-Resilient

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Resilient

 This week I decided to post

some images of landmarks which…

bigben_0269

were talked about when I was at school…

london_big-ben_0346a

have been through two World Wars…

pisa_0031

and which we were fortunate enough

to visit in September, 2016.

Although we only made it to the second level

of the Eiffel Tower it was an experience

not to be forgotten.

arc-de-triomphe_0507

We were told that we could climb up, inside,

the Arc De Triomphe,

however, my knees, ankles and feet

suggested otherwise.

And although were saddened to see this site

as it was our last night of the tour…

It was wonderful to get back on British soil again.

I don’t know how many times I said ‘grazie

only to realise that we had crossed a border

and now should have said ‘merci‘, or ‘danke‘.

My contribution for this week’s

Roofs

Some French roof lines this week. …

paris-roof_0357

This one was a drive by and its name eludes me.

paris-eiffel-tower_0202

However, this one was taken from the Eiffel Tower.

paris-eiffel-tower_0203

And this is the long distance shot.

The roof, in the previous photo, is the whitish one

just before the first bridge across the river.
