My

Abroad

Travel Theme.

~~~~~

Travelling to Europe last year gave us the

opportunity to see and or visit many places

we had read about or seen only as movie sets. 

Both of us had, not long before departure,

finished reading a book titled,

“I, Mona Lisa’ which was set in Florence.

The Medici family were the main characters,

The story was a fictional depiction of how,

and why, the Mona Lisa may have come to be painted.

 

The Arc de Triomphe and the Champs Elysees 

are two well known landmarks of Paris.

 This is one of the fountains inside

Dubai’s Burj Al Arab.

 

We had planned on partaking of High Tea at

the Burj Al Arab in 2013.

Unfortunately our plans had to change.

  It was, however, a 7 star experience worth waiting for.

Odd Ball

Week 26, 2017

~~~~~

This was not the first roadside collection of

undetonated ammunition.

 We were told that this is only a ‘couple of weeks worth’

of undetonated or dud ammunition.

It was the first hand grenade we sighted.

I did hear a member of the group state

that it still had the pin in it.

I did not inspect any closer to verify this statement

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Teddy-Bears-Toys

~~~

My contribution for

this week’s challenge

Teddy Bears, Toys

~~~~~

A variety of dolls and toys

but mostly re-posts I’m afraid.Candi’s much used and much loved ropes.

Over twenty years old but still brings a smile to our faces.

I think these may also qualify as dolls…

 

even though they are a bit big for the toy box.

 However, there was one young lady

who would have found room for this one.

Weekly Photo Challenge-Transient

 

~~~~~

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Transient

~~~~~


Based on transient definition of….

lasting only for a short time; impermanent

I could not think of anything better than

these rainbow images taken

during the past six months.

This one  lasted for no more than two minutes

and it really was the crown to my shots

of the lighthouse sunrise.

Similarly this rainbow in the west while

the sun rose behind  me

was also memorable, but fleeting.

It is the shortest day of 2017,

so what better way to spend a

Wednesday afternoon in winter...

than with a stretch after a game of fetch, or…

a favourite bone.

Hope you enjoyed.
