Weekly Photo Challenge-Shiny



My contribution for this week’s challenge…



Whether in…York…

at Harry Potter’s Platform…

Buckingham Palace…

or in Brugge…


we always found some gold handiwork

shining at us.



Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Fire-Trucks


My contribution for

this week’s challenge

Fire Trucks


The Fire trucks could not save this and

several other churches, from arsonists,

not matter how hard they tried.

Cannot remember whether this London truck

was rushing to a fire or just out

for a Sunday drive.





Black and White Challenge:



My buildings mostly come from York…
with the exception of the first.

The Kings Cross Station Roof in London,

which looks much better in colour.

All the other images are…. buildings in York.

Dated 1489

Probably a little newer than 1489.

 Not sure what the building is but included this

because of the Captain James Cook ferry

on the River Ouse.

One Word Photo Challenge-Friend



 After my initial meeting in 1976…long before

MGW came on the scene…
our friends from York were still happy

to show us around York, albeit at a slower pace,

while catching up on missed news

 since they visited us in 1998.

Black and White Challenge:



The building which dominated

York’s skyline was…

York Minster.

It was equally impressive close up as in the distance.

The above shot was taken in Nice.

We call these pedestrian crossings…Zebra Crossings.

I don’t know if the rest of the world uses

 that nickname for them, or not.

This is a real Zebra crossing in

Kruger National Park,

South Africa.


Where ever these crossing are located,

suburbia or in National Parks,

they have the same effect on the traffic flow.
