Black and White Tuesday

~~~~~

It has been a while since I…

visited Balyang Sanctuary and its residents.

Last week I caught up with them again.

This is the best pool for reflections…

 

 and this resident is always a willing model.

One Word Photo Challenge-Lock

My

Lock

 Challenge

~~~~

An old lock on a church  door.

 

Always thought padlocks were secure,

until I had to cut one with a hacksaw.

Took all of fifteen seconds to cut through.

 

A lone love lock on Sydney Harbour Bridge.

 

but these are on…

on the Makartsteg bridge over

the Salzach River, in Salzburg.

Daily Prompt-Gorge

Gorge

~~~~~

Victoria’s South West coastline is known

for the number of sailing vessels which came

to grief during bad weather. 

The stretch of coastline became known as

the Shipwreck Coast in the 1800s.

HMS Loch Ard hit a reef and sank

on June 1, 1878.

The only two survivors….

were washed into this gorge which

now bears the name Loch Ard Gorge.

Loch Ard Gorge is only a few minutes drive

from the Twelve Apostles and many

other formations carved out of the coastline

over the years.

Cee-BW-Challenge-Houses

~~~~~

Compared to most houses in Australia…

most of us thought many European cities

contained small houses which went up instead

of sprawling along the ground.

On the other hand, this is the back yard of

Schonbrunn Palace.

It is also known as the

Hapsburg’s Summer Cottage.

There is only 1,441 rooms in Schonbrunn Palace

compared to 3,000 rooms in the

Hapsburg’s Winter Palace.

At the other end of the spectrum was

this refugee camp at Calais.

Back to Amsterdam and this tiny house

squeezed in between others not much larger.

Finally, one of the many houseboats

moored in Amsterdam’s canals.

My perception of ‘small’ is based on the frontage.

Only those living in my ‘small’ houses know

how roomy they are…particularly when a house

is several stories high.

THURSDAY’S SPECIAL-Sequence

Sequence


  According to the Free Online Dictionary

‘sequence’ has the following definitions;

1. A following of one thing after another; succession.

2. An order of succession; an arrangement.

3. A related or continuous series.

I think most of these photos demonstrate

one or more of those definitions.

I commenced at the Palace of Versailles…

for my photos for his week and could not get away.

 

Even lines which seemed odd… 

 

were arranged in order.

 

    Most of these photos…

depict but a small part… 


of the Palace… 

and its gardens…

 

One need more time than we had

to thoroughly explore the gardens.

And I think his maybe as close as we came

to seeing this section of the garden.
