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!

Workers from all over…

A gondolier.

My limited knowledge of lumberjacks’ work

tells me that they actually did climb trees

as part of every day work.

Memory could be way off though.

Happy to be corrected.

Beefeater Guide Tour

Amid that crowd is a Beefeater at work

guiding visitors around

the Tower of London.

 

While in Europe each guide carried a flag of some kind. 

Trouble was there was so much to see

and dawdle over, the coloured flag

was often forgotten (by me). 

All guides were very knowledgeable but

sometimes it was just nice to walk and look

without the constant commentary.

Our favourite African guide,

planning the next day. 

Or was he offering up thanks for

a successful day just ended?

Commencing in Rome…

I think…

with statues….their names…

or history…unknown.

These, however, are wood carvings…

on top of Vancouver’s,

Grouse Mountain.
