Word-of-Day-Challenge-Glimpse

glimpse

“she caught a glimpse of the ocean”

see or perceive briefly or partially.

Each morning of our European holiday,

our tour director would begin with the phrase…

‘...well you’ve done (insert city name), 

tonight we will be in (insert city name)…’

 

While I thoroughly enjoyed our trip…

I did feel that we were only getting

a glimpse of each city…the highlights.

The following year I returned

to Arras in France for a

Western Front Battlefields tour.

Arras, Bell Tower

Because I was in Arras for 5 nights

I think I enjoyed that brief trip

as much as any of the cities

we visited the previous year.

news

INFORMAL
information not previously known to (someone).

Prior to…
…visiting Paris this, a daylight view,

was the only view, I had ever seen of

The Eiffel Tower.


So it was certainly news to me

to see the Tower bathed in lights.

Let-alone this beam of light piercing the night skies...

 

…from its peak.

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.
