A-Photo-a-Week-Challenge-Over-100-Years-Old

~~~~~~

A building which definitely fits

the 100 years or older category.

Rome’s Colosseum…

has always fascinated me.

I just wish we could have had more time to explore.

 

As it was, we had too little time and the body

was happy to walk as little as possible.

May 2018 Words

 

Florence’s statue of

Perseus holding the Head of Medusa

aMay not be a classical Greek statue depicting…iconic.

 

However, when you find the head of the victim

one can certainly say there is a victor….and

an athlete of sorts!

With my farming wool classing background

propagation just had to be a photo of sheep 🙂

One way to cleave a cake…

and of course another way…

which only an eighteen year old would think of.

zoomorphic

The eagle…the ancient Roman symbol of gods of the sky.

Marginal

THURSDAY’S SPECIAL-Zoom-In-Zoom-Out-3

Another Zoom-In-Zoom-Out

while Paula is taking a break

These photos were to be used in

Cee’s Fun Foto-People at Work Challenge

I think they probably fit both.The flags represent two (of many) guides

in the Vatican the day we visited.

And zoom out…and they are barely visible.

Thursday’s Special: Zoom-In-Zoom-Out

Daily-Prompt-Rush

~~~~~

The only thing we all agreed upon during

our European tour was that it was rushed.

While we visited many sites we wanted to see

and had priority access…

there were many other who also had

priority access also which made our visit

a shoulder to shoulder affair.

We soon found ourselves watching a flag,

similar to this one.

Stopping to take a photo often meant

losing contact with our group.

Yes, it was rushed, at times

but thoroughly enjoyable.

Daily Prompt-Explore

~~~~~

The Colosseum of Rome was high on my list

when we visited Europe two years ago. 

However, it was high on thousands of other people’s lists as well.

 

Our exploration of this wonder of the world…

was restricted to watching others from this level.

Another place to re-visit when not on a guided tour.

I would have so loved to have

visited and explored the lower area.

Time

I wonder if…

any of today’s stadiums or buildings…

will still be standing in 2,000 years time.

Even though the Colosseum is not in working order…

 

to think we are walking on the same pavers

which gladiators, or emperors of the day

walked upon is incredible.
