Red

 

I think my first photo will…

london-red_0206

indicated which country…

london-red_0486

and city we are in this week.

london-red_0053

I have been wanting to use this image for a while.

Over $AUD3.00 to sit down for an hour!?

And yet there must have been 50 or more

deck chairs just waiting for a sitter.

Or maybe the empty ones belong to those Londoners

who purchased a Season Ticket for just under $AUD180.00.

Bright red London bicycles.

 And finally the London Eye, just on dusk.

We stopped in at the Troia Cafe Bar Restaurant,

in Lambeth Road London for a light snack

prior to our London Eye experience.

We did not realise Troia served mainly Middle Eastern cuisine.

We just liked the look of the place.

And there was something which catered for our hunger on the menu.

However, the decor took our eye.

Beautiful, colourful lamps hanging from the ceiling

created a second to none ambience.

Troia Cafe Bar Restaurant will be remembered,

for all the right reasons.  

Good food, friendly staff and great decor.  

Totally opposite to our farewell dinner

the previous evening, in Paris.

Travel Theme-March

My

March

Travel Theme.

As many visitors do we waited at

Buckingham Palace for

the Changing of the Guard…or at least part of it.

 buckingham_palace_0773

We watched as a steady stream of tourists

marched to the Palace

 buckingham_palace_0790

And then were surprised to see a band marching from

the Palace precinct down The Mall…

 buckingham_palace_0803

followed by this group.

My feet envied this group.

 buckingham_palace_0824And still tourists came…

buckingham_palace_0823

in their groups.

buckingham_palace_0875
Finally the ceremony began.

buckingham_palace_0882

However, I have been left wondering if budget constraints

have reduced the size, or number,

of personnel participating in this ceremony.

I am sure it was a grander affair in 1976.

But then again, wasn’t everything better

when we were younger.

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Ambience

~~~~~

While waiting for our turn on the London Eye…
troja-lights_london_0190

we decided that we could do with some sustenance.

troja-lights_london_0191

Our wanderings found us outside Troja Restaurant.

troja-lights_london_0193

Troja is known for its Middle Eastern and Mediterranean Cuisine, however..

troja-lights_london_0200

I will always remember the ambience created…

troja-lights_london_0204bby these gorgeous lights, of which

I have posted but a few.

I should also add that the food was excellent also.

Odd Ball

Week 01, 2017

~~~~~

A scene most of us will never see except on television.

coach-cam_0686

Coach Cam mounted on one of the Royal coaches.

It was part of an audio-visual display at The Royal Mews.

My flash is clearly visible and  I wasn’t hauled off

to the Tower of London after taking the photo.

I think it  fits the Odd Ball challenge

in as much as it is an unusual shot.

London

 

Some tourist images from London this week.

horseshoe-hoof_0260

Glad my shoes  are not fixed  on like this,

although this member of

the Queens Horse Guard

did not seem to mind..

dragon_0143

I found this dragon while searching for

Wordless Wednesday photos.

I could have used it in my

One Word Photo Challenge

this week.

Some London lamps which also

could have been used in

Cee’s Light – Dark Challenge.
