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:

Buildings

~~~~~

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.

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.

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.
