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:

Signs of Any Kind.

~~~~~

Cee, I hope you really meant signs of ANY kind, this week.

And you have said, somewhere, that you would like

to see my photos taken recently.

With all that in mind this may be considered

an R or X Rated post by some.

Forewarned. :-).

Today’s post relates to

Pompeii and its Red Light District.

 pompeii_red-light_0851While negotiating the wet weather in Pompeii,

our guide pointed out this stick/stone protruding

from the wall above the small rectangular window.

This is a close up shot.

She told us it indicated a Red Light District was nearby.

A few minutes later we were shown through

part of said Red Light area.

All agreed that the bed did not look all that comfortable,

with general consensus being that it was a sign of

some aches and pains somewhere?!

However, there were plenty of signs around…

to guide and assist ‘visitors’.

And just in case you were walking along and

did not see the original sign,

about 20 feet above ground level,

this one (also indicating the same area)

was also pointed out to us as we

made our way out of the ruins.

It would be hard to miss as it appears to be

nearly as long, as many of the feet passing by.

So there you have it.

Signs from Pompeii.  

I never thought that I would be able to

use these photos, in a legitimate challenge.  

Thank you Cee. 😀
