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’  🙂

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-More-Than-5

More than five objects or people in a photo.

Sunrise on Corio Bay

 

Watching a sunrise.

Just had to have a chuckle.

Restaurant lights

Sadly these trees no longer are.

Not sure if they have been replaced by eucalyptus trees

Model and photographer at work on St Kilda Pier.

 

Tourists helping each other…or resting.

While other line up for entry to,

or photograph, the next attraction.

One of my favourites this time of year.

Erlicheer daffodils…an early sign of spring.

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.

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Public

~~~~~

The word ‘Pub’ I believe to be

an abbreviate version of

‘Public House’

Had I known the Flying Horse was

the last traditional pub standing

on Oxford Street,

(Source: Google, Wikipedia)

I would have taken advantage of

the free day care, at least for a few minutes,

and photographed some of the interior,

if permitted.
