Word-of-Day-Challenge-Native

~~~~~

native

a person born in a specified place
or associated with a place by birth,
whether subsequently resident there or not.

My guess would be that there were not many

Parisién or French natives (in general)…

…in this queue at Palace of Versailles.

Cee-BW-Challenge-Signs

~~~~~

 

 

Signs which are

self explanatory,

I hope.

I don’t remember taking this shot

and have never before, or since,

laid eyes on this bus.

However, according to my filing system

it was taken in Melbourne.

This was about as far as a DSLR camera could go. 

Pocket size cameras and phones

were okay, I believe.

A Tea Room on the

Western Front Battlefields

of France.

.

Self explanatory? 

All day we were hearing about Whistler

and all day I was thinking

‘…I’ve heard that name before…’   

However, only made the connection upon arrival. 

Fun fact.

  We were told that recent summer sports had

overtaken, economically, winter sports

on/at Whistler.

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Unlikely

~~~~~

unlikely

not likely to happen, be done, or be true; improbable.

When planning our time in Paris…

…it was highly unlikely that I

would not visit the Eiffel Tower…

…or visit the Moulin Rouge which was

a wonderful dinner and show.

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’  🙂

FOWChallenge-Highfalutin

~~~~~

highfalutin

(especially of speech, writing, or ideas)
pompous or pretentious.
~~~~

The general consensus was that..

…there would have been a fair degree of

pomposity and pretentiousness

within and around

Schonbrunn and Versailles Palaces.
