One Word Photo Challenge-Lizard

My

Lizard

 Challenge

~~~~

No lizards to show this week, however, as many Australian lizards do belong to the dragon family I have decided on dragons as my alternate theme this week.Dragons can come inside your house

and cause all sorts of mayhem if there are

no dragon friendly people inside.

I’m sure this one was the cause of much

trouble in bygone years.

 I found this dragon in London supporting

some type of canon or mortar.

No doubt again designed to cause mayhem.

THURSDAY’S SPECIAL-Traces-of-the-Past-2

Traces of the Past-2

This week back to London and

its infamous Tower.

Ruins within the Tower of London.

From history books I only know the catapult

to be a weapon of war.

 These carts and boxes also from a distant era.


Finally, the Scavenger’s Daughter. 

We have all heard of The Rack which stretches bodies.

Well the Scavenger’s Daughter crushes bodies

as they are folded into a kneeling position

which sees knees against chest.

Thursday’s Special: Traces-of-the-Past

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Letter-M

~~~

My contribution for

this week’s challenge

Letter-M

(Needs to have 2 M’s in the word
(mammal, monument, moment, hammer, summit))

Random Ms this week.This was the style of accommodation

we experienced during our first trip to Africa.

To curtail cost we were back to tents, stretchers

and sleeping bags for about one-third of the safari.

During my trip to France this year we were told that

it is not uncommon to find ammunition dumps

like this one outside many villages on France.

This was the first of two we were shown.

About two or three weeks since it was last cleared.

 Selling commonplace items like these oil cans,

on Facebook, was not hard.

What was hard to believe was

the price people were willing

to pay for them.

 

Tucked in behind the red bus is

Britain’s House of Commons…

if my research is correct.

Finally, my commentary about these photos

is another MM word! 🙂

Floral Friday Challenge.

~~~~~

Facebook has been inundating me with memories

of our travels last year.

So I decided to post some previously

unpublished shots of

St James Park

in London.

Crocus, I believe.

 ~~~~The intrigue here was the plant

with the longish, narrow leaves,

below the blue/purple flower and

above the daisy type flowers.

I spent many hours digging great clumps of this

out of the ground in my youth as it

was a big ugly bushy weed.

And here it is in St James Park only

a few hundred metres from Buckingham Palace.

One Word Photo Challenge-Jewellery

My

Jewellery

 Challenge

~~~~

 

Some ‘jewels’ on a foggy morning.

Back in the day, the term ‘crown jewels’

had a slightly different meaning.

 Let’s just say the wearer of this suit of armour

was having his ‘crown jewels’ well protected.

Perhaps even…boasting..a lot.

 

 Finishing on a serious note.

This jewellery was ready for sale

at the Arras Sunday market.
