Seems there were many towering photo

opportunities during our European holiday.

The Tower of Pisa.

Maybe not a tower per se, but

York Minster does tower over visitors…

…and locals alike.

The ceiling of

Notre Dame de Paris

also towers above its visitors.

And still towers over Paris…

…rivalled only by this Parisian tower.

 

On our way back Down Under

we stopped off in Dubai

for a few nights.

I think the Burj Khalifa Tower is my favourite

just for its sheer size.

Two of my favourite bluestone buildings.

This old shed is just outside Geelong.

 

 

This church is in the Geelong’s Main Street.

The church is standing, the tree has gone

and new additions have been built

to accommodate offices and

what may be a car showrooms.

The Good Friday plans of many Parisians and tourists alike

were shattered on Monday when…

Notre Dame de Paris burned.

Approximately 30,000 people visit

Notre Dame de Paris everyday.

And likely thousands more visit

over the Easter period.

It is unlikely that any, of the many Easter services

and celebrations will be conducted

anywhere near Notre Dame, this year.

I think these are some of the statues of

the Twelve Apostles, plus four Evangelists,

which surrounded the Spire.

These had all been removed only

a day or two prior to he fire.

Today, Good Friday appears to bring some good news

as far as items saved are concerned.

Let us all be thankful for small mercies.

We visited

Notre Dame Cathedral

in September,

2016

Built 800 years ago.

Took 200 Years to build.


And a mere six hours to burn…
