Whether in…York…

or in Brugge…

 

we always found some gold handiwork

shining at us.

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.

Friends.

 After my initial meeting in 1976…long before

MGW came on the scene…
our friends from York were still happy

to show us around York, albeit at a slower pace,

while catching up on missed news

 since they visited us in 1998.

The building which dominated

York’s skyline was…

York Minster.

It was equally impressive close up as in the distance.

The above shot was taken in Nice.

We call these pedestrian crossings…Zebra Crossings.

I don’t know if the rest of the world uses

 that nickname for them, or not.

This is a real Zebra crossing in

Kruger National Park,

South Africa.

 

Where ever these crossing are located,

suburbia or in National Parks,

they have the same effect on the traffic flow.

Some more red geraniums.

According to he medical profession I have

red-green colour vision loss.

 However,  this is one red-green combination

in which, I think, the red is stunning.

So…is it red??????????  🙂

Also my last York offering, I think.

York.

We should have tried a few of these when in York.

However, I have no idea what this tree is.

 

york-crocus_0413

Some York crocus flowers.

Ccrocus appear to grow randomly in the U.K.

We sighted many in St James’ Park

just popping up through the lawn.
