A-Photo-a-Week-Challenge-Vibrant

~~~~~~~

~~~~~

vibrant

full of energy and life.

~~~~~

 

Vibrant is a good adjective to describe Murano.

Even though it was raining

Murano was still full of life.

 

Yellows, blues and orange create

a very vibrant image.

 

The colours of…

…these parrots…

 

…are also vibrant.

Zimbabwe dancers at Victoria Falls.

A-Photo-a-Week-Challenge-Ancient

~~~~~~~

 

~~~~~

ancient

belonging to the very distant past
and no longer in existence.

After the Colosseum…

…was completed…

…it was the scene…

 

…of Roman entertainment…

 

 

…for several…

 

…hundred years.

 

During the fifth century A.D…

 

…several earthquakes damaged the structure of the Colosseum.

 

 

Changing entertainment tastes and

general neglect accounted for

the demise of the Colosseum.

 

At the beginning of the 20th century,

nearly two-thirds of the original Colosseum

 had been destroyed.

Our visit to Pompeii

 

An amphitheatre.   

The lighter coloured stone is not original.

 

Public toilet

 

Washbasins at Pompeii.

 

 

Stepping stones for crossing flooded streets.

 

Plaster cast body. 

A person trying to protect

nose and mouth from dust. 

A dog 

Another body.   

Some of the many everyday objects

gathered at Pompeii over the years.  

We were told this was Pompeii’s

version of Mcdonald’s.

The brothel menu…

…above the…

 

…brothel bed.

 

And if you were unsure if there was a

brothel nearby there were signs

embedded in the street and on walls. 

Can you see this one?

 

At least that is what our guide told us  😉

 

We just made it back to some semblance

of shelter when those clouds emptied out.

A-Photo-a-Week-Challenge-Focal-Point

~~~~~~~

~~~~~

focal point

the centre of interest or activity

~~~~~

 

Focal point…seagulls. 

I think the Warrnambool Surf Lifesavers club rooms,

in the background,

provide too much distraction. 

Initially, I thought this was a

cropped version of my first image. 

Again I was incorrect. 

However, there is little or no distraction

and the seagulls are

the obvious focal point.

 

 

Everything I didn’t want in focus

is in focus and vice versa.

 

 

Now the focal point is in focus. 

Still, far too much background distraction

 


A cropped version of the previous image

leaves no doubt that at least some of the

Weeping Cherry buds are in focus

and are the focal point of this image.
