My Foreign post

 

 

The few days I spent in Arras, France,

last year made me realise…

how difficult it is for migrants/foreigners

who land on the shores of another country

with only a smattering of the local language.

Weekly Photo Challenge-Favorite-Place

 

~~~~~

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Favorite Place…

~~~~~

Considering I have a prepared post for the

Tuesday Photo Challenge

of my favourite local places…

I decided to post some favourite European places.

 

The hands down winner for this title goes to

Het Zand Square in Brugge.

I’m not sure if it was the first mainland

European city we stopped at…

 or the fact that I managed some half decent

night shots of the square and fountain.

 

Arras, Bell Tower

Last year it was the Place des Heros and the Bell Tower,

in Arras which won my heart.

And after hearing about Menin Gate from my Father

it was with joy and sadness I visited sites along

the Western Front that were synonymous

with my Grandfather’s World War  I war service.

  Tomorrow are favourite local places

posted in

Tuesday Photo Challenge.

Particularly bad graphic card troubles this morning.

I do hope all photos are sharp.

I will check and change photos if necessary.

Weekly Photo Challenge-Glow

 

~~~~~

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Glow

~~~~~

My glows are from

Arras, France and Geelong

this week.The Arras Bell Tower lit up by surrounding lights.

 

A combination of wall light and flash light

gave an interesting glow to the wall

of St. Germain’s cafe in Arras.

 

During daylight these are just white balls

adorning Geelong’s Foreshore.

However…

 after dark they become glowing beacons.

One Word Photo Challenge-Jewellery

~~~~~

My

Jewellery

 Challenge

~~~~

 

Some ‘jewels’ on a foggy morning.

Back in the day, the term ‘crown jewels’

had a slightly different meaning.

 Let’s just say the wearer of this suit of armour

was having his ‘crown jewels’ well protected.

Perhaps even…boasting..a lot.

 

 Finishing on a serious note.

This jewellery was ready for sale

at the Arras Sunday market.
