Daily Prompt-Skewed

~~~~~

Based on the ‘not straight‘ definition

of skew or skewed…

I think this the most famous building

skewed off-centre in the world.

My memories of photos of this attraction were… always of a building on its own.

 

 

Never once had I thought of it surround

by walls of other buildings…

 

clustered in a relatively small area.

 However, all my memories were incorrect.

I’m just not certain where a photo

could be taken and leave the viewer

with the illusion of a Tower leaning

and not surrounded by other buildings.

Jo’s Monday Walk

Week-49

Leaning Tower of Pisa
Italy

Before we arrived for this short walk we were advised

that there would be some ‘public transport’ to assist

our journey from bus stop to town…about 300-400 metres.

Not far but by this stage I feet were glad of any respite.

Off the bus/coach and onto McDonald’s Express.

This was my first surprise.

A hidden Tower?

Even this morning many of Google’s photos

depict the Tower in what appears to be

an uncluttered field.

And walls like this to further add some mystery to the area.

Pisa Baptistery of St. John

Pisa Cathedral

And the Leaning Tower is actually

the Cathedral’s, Bell Tower.

WE had neither time or energy to climb to the top

and decided this was close enough.

After a few obligatory photos…

we began our walk back to our coach via the market stalls…

 

stopping only occasionally to view the wares on display.

 This week I decided to post

some images of landmarks which…

to visit in September, 2016.

Although we only made it to the second level

of the Eiffel Tower it was an experience

not to be forgotten.

We were told that we could climb up, inside,

the Arc De Triomphe,

however, my knees, ankles and feet

suggested otherwise.

And although were saddened to see this site

as it was our last night of the tour…

It was wonderful to get back on British soil again.

I don’t know how many times I said ‘grazie

only to realise that we had crossed a border

and now should have said ‘merci‘, or ‘danke‘.
