THURSDAY’S SPECIAL-Traces-of-the-Past

Traces of the Past

Have always been fascinated with Pompeii…

so decided that relics from Pompeii’s heyday…


would make a suitable post for today.

Commencing at our hotel in Vienna…The Imperial Riding School.

 

 A long passage to…

elevators.

The foyer of Dubai’s

Burj Al Arab…

 with its twin walk ways/escalators

either side of the fountain.

Another walk to the

Sky View Lounge

after..

an elevator ride to the top.

 

However, over in the Vatican walkers

ascend this spiral (step less)

staircase at a more sedate pace.

THURSDAY’S SPECIAL-October-Words

October Word Challenge

Switzerland could only be described as

mountainous.

   When I saw the word whiskers, my first thoughts

were of Soxie who passed away

about twelve months ago.

  However, I could have easily gone

down this track also. 

However, as he was sleeping with

 one eye open, literally,

I was pleased that there was

a very thick slab of glass between us.

This crumbling room at Pompeii was described

as possibly the first McDonalds, or takeaway, ever. 

Food was prepared and served to the public.

 

Sydney’s famous bridge spanning the harbour

creating easy access between north and south.

 Finally, I always think Geelong’s

Cunningham Pier

looks immaculate as the sun sets. 

Earlier this week was no exception.

Cee’s

Black and White Challenge:

Backs

~~~~~

Backs from Europe this week…

 and we saw many backs walking away

from us while touring.

I guess we made the backs

for other photographers.

And while in Florence we saw this

imitation of David…but still a back.

Entering Nice one of the first things we saw

was a tarmac full of private jets.

There were times a chair would have

been quite welcome.

I even thought cycling was better than walking.

And I guess a visit to Nice would not be complete

without a tourist shot or two of sunbathers’ backs.

THURSDAY’S SPECIAL-Traces-of-the-Past


While in Rome we viewed and…visited many traces of the past.

The Colosseum was one, if not the main,

historical site I wanted to visit.

it was easy to envision gladiators

and Romans strolling around

the Colosseum’s before the games began.

 

The most fascinating fact, we were told,

is that these pavers are the original pavers,

set in place over nineteen hundred years ago.

My

Steps

 Travel Theme.

~~~~~

Steps from all over this week.

Some Viennese steps.

 At St Paul de Vence near Nice.

 Even the Vatican had a healthy set of steps.

 

This area of coastline is near

The Twelve Apostles

and is known as

Gibson Steps.

My destination was the Apostles so this was

only to be a brief stop.

On the day I did not see the steps

but the size of the couple on the sand

left me in no doubt that I

would not be looking for them, that day.
