FOWChallenge-Skimp

~~~~~

skimp

expend or use less time, money, or material on something
than is necessary in an attempt to economize.
“don’t skimp on insurance when you book your holidays”
a fashionably short or revealing garment.
“she wore a yellow skimp”

Not many years ago this hemline…

…would have shocked everyone.

Now it is rather conservative.

The bikini clad sun lovers are borderline skimpy

by today’s standards.

As I don’t shoot many people in skimpy attire,

I  had too search photos like this to find…

to find any skimpy or not so skimpy clad

beach goers at Sydney’s Manly Beach.

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Apex

~~~~~

Our train ride up Switzerland’s…

Mt Rigi…

…did not take us to the apex.

There were two fairly steep walks left to attain

the full 1,798 metre height of the mountain.

While I did not hurry there were

spectacular views as we walked up.

 

 

Upon arriving at the summit the views…

 

of Lake Lucerne we equally…

…breathtaking.

 

 

 

After ten or fifteen minutes it was time

to return to the gift shop level.

The walk back seemed more difficult

than the walk up, thanks to a football injury

to my knee in the early 1970s.

Definitely worth the effort though.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Orange-Pink

~~~~~

I have alternated colours this week.Bags of Australian grown oranges

in Melbourne.

Pink blossom closer to home.

The manufacturer calls this colour ‘Jaffa’.

Most people refer to it as orange.

It is one of the last cars manufactured in Australia,

by General Motors Holden.

A pink Galah.

Often people who do something silly

are called galahs also.

 

 Not sure where I found this

or what it is supposed to be,

however, it is orange.

 

Who cares what colour they are.

Macaroons are always yummy.

Just not healthy.

I believe this photo was taken in Florence.

Just cannot remember if the bag

was for sale or

owned by a fellow traveller.

The other option was that it fell into the:

‘...Darling this matches my shoes…

and it’s only 1,000 Euro...’

category.

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Zenith

~~~~~

~~~~

zenith
the time at which something is most powerful or successful.
synonyms:
highest point, high point

To reach the zenith of Lucerne’s Mt Rigi 

required a train ride up a very steep gradient.

Upon reaching the zenith of the rain ride…

 

 

…there were two shortish walk up more steep gradient.

However, the views over Lake Lucerne

made the walk worth the effort.

 

 

No, I did not climb to the highest point attainable…

…mainly because the walk back appeared

more difficult than the walk up.

If you have never made this journey,

the train station is the small building

roughly centre background.

Naturally to make it to the top and back again

one needs to walk past the souvenir/coffee shop.

I never thought the difference would be so obvious…

until I visited the Melbourne Zoo after…

 

seeing the same animals roaming free in

Botswana and Kruger National Park.
