wondering

characterized by or expressive of a desire to know something; curious.
characterized by or expressive of admiration and amazement.

Yesterday’s images….

I often wonder who lived here and why/when they moved.

The house was looking much like this

nearly fifteen years ago and only deteriorated.

Then the bulldozer moved in

to complete the demolition.

I often wonder what this was.

A school?

A public hall?

Or maybe a simple house?

Whatever it was I think it well beyond repair.

But if those walls could talk….

Now I am wondering was my post form yesterday

a premonition of sorts???

And I also find myself wondering how amazing

buildings of the magnitude of Dubai’s

Burj Khalifa are constructed.

Similar comments could be made about

the Colosseum, the Pyramids, Stonehenge, Great Wall of China,

just to name a few, of the ancient landmarks

many of us visit and are in awe of.

During our visit to the Vatican…

…we found many…

…works of art to admire.

And although

The Creation of Adam

measures 280 cm × 570 cm (9 ft 2 in × 18 ft 8 in)

it looked much smaller.

However, perhaps the fact that it

was 14 metres above us contributed to the fact

that it didn’t appear a large as expected.

When I saw floor was the theme

it didn’t take long for this image to come to mind.

It has lasted a bit longer than most modern-day floors,

and according to Google this floor

is around 1,949 years old.

And can be found under the bottom arches

of the Colosseum.

Giants from new Zealand…although we begin in Italy.

Anyone who has visited the Vatican

may have climbed the spiral step less staircase

and been in awe at its construction.

However the entrance/exit to the Ruakuri Cave, at Waitomo,

makes the Vatican staircase look like a miniature.

We also visited the Giant Redwood Forest at Rotorua.

These trees are not as large as some

of the photographed Californian Redwoods,

however, they are still Giant Redwoods

14-September-(Salmon) Pink

Salmon Pink.

According to my tags this shot comes from

our visit to the The Colosseum.

The first shot is a crop of this one.

Which is the second of two images,

the first of which has the statue in focus

and the girl near the post.

She apparently caught my camera’s eye

because her top was in focus but not much else!
