Brugge (Belgium), and…
…Tower of London
Landmarks from any where…
The Eiffel Tower…324 metres high.
The Tower in which Big Ben (the Bell)
resides is 96 metres high.
According too Google the
Geelong Football Club ground
is 5.1 kilometres as the crow flies.
Without the light towers, which are 73 metres high,
the ground would be difficult to spot
even from this vantage point.
Although I don’t have a photo,
this morrning Melbourne was laying claim to
having the tallest Southern hemisphere building.
At 388 metres high, the 108 storey
hotel and apartment building
is located in Melbourne’s
Our guide told us that this was
the sight of the original McDonalds…
…at Pompeii. 🙂

The Beefeater Guide had plenty of stories to tell
about The Tower of London
Our guide (foreground) at the Colosseum
was aware of its history and many
previously unheard of facts.
…the leopard sleeping…
which neither of us had heard.
In 2018 we discovered these lions guarding a bridge
which is an entrance to a park named
after the16th Earl of Derby
on the North American continent, in a west coast city,
in a country which had not fought
a war of independence.
In 2017 while visiting the
Western Front Battlefields
of World War I…
…I came upon two more lions guarding this Gate.
These lions, gifted to Australia after World War I,
were temporarily returned for
World War I Centenary Clebrations.
I was lucky to capture these images as the lions
were being returned to Canberra in November 2017.
The word lion/s and some nearby text in Google
will find the location if I have been too vague. 🙂

Our recent visits to London and Canada
were my second visit
to both destinations
The major difference between 1976
and recent times were the crowds.
Lake Louise was, from memory,
virtually deserted back then.
Twenty-first century Lake Louise
was so crowded it was difficult
to capture a tourist free image.
London was similar, although it was…
…the traffic and overall crowded streets
which surprised me.
Lights an bulbs from all over…

Geelong’s Eastern Beach car park

from the London Eye.

during the past decade.
