Patterns everywhere…

…in rope…

…in brickwork…

 

…and in windows.

While at Skagway, Alaska I noticed this fence

and drew a comment or two from

incoming tourists questioning my logic

in photographing a fence.

Little did they know how useful

it would be… 🙂

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

Southbank area.
