Wits-End-Weekly-Prompt-Illusions

 

I always wanted to take some of these pics…

and finally a chance presented itself

at King’s Cross Station in Sydney.

Clouds in a station.

Sydney Harbour Bridge also.

And how could a train as big as that was

come in an opening so small?

Cee’s

Black and White Challenge.

Beginning my fountain post in Australia, with…Sydney’s, El Alamein Fountain in King’s Cross.

My favourite, so far, fountain is to be found in

Brugge’s Het Zand Square, Belgium.

These two shots are after dark shots

and I thought it truly beautiful.

Trevi Fountain in Rome was crowded,

although we were lucky to see it.

It had been closed for several years for renovations.

I think this hot could be mistaken for a sheet of steel.  However….

it is merely a close up of the water of the

Legislative Assembly Building’s fountain…

in Victoria, Canada.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Camera-Photographers

Random shots mostly while

travelling in Europe.
However, this was a treasure I salvaged

from the tip when father-in-law downsized.

I could have taken thousands of shots

of people holding iPads

during our European trip.


 Waiting for the right moment.

 

Not sure where this was taken.

 An iPhone, or similar,

at the Trevi Fountain

 

Finally, a selfie among the new trees last week.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-External-Ups-Downs

~~~

Ups and Downs from everywhere.Victoria Falls joyride.

A Balloon ride over Melbourne.


Not sure if this is the front or back entrance,

but it was captured in old Sydney.

My recent drive up and down

Mount Buninyong

yielded two roads…

one for the journey up,

the other for the journey down.

And in this case what goes up must come down, on Geelong’s Eastern Beach.

Weekly Photo Challenge-Rather

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

I’d Rather be…

~~~~~

At this time of day (0600), at this time of my life

I’d Rather be looking forward to…

another hour of sleep.

And all through my formative years

I dreamed of being an archaeologist.

So I guess from a work perspective

that’s what I’d Rather be….

than be being a woolclasser and teacher/trainer. 

Still, I have enjoyed my working life

and dreams are often better than reality. 

Nearly forgot to add…this shot is

from a ‘dig’ in Old Sydney…back in

the early days of Australia, as we know it.

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Story

~~~~~

One hot day in Sydney…

one youngster found a cool way to keep cool.

Big sister is not so sure.

“I think you are getting wet”

 Yep!

It’s official.

The water is wet.

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.
