Word-of-Day-Challenge-Oblong

~~~~~

~~~~

Oblong…defined as

a rectangular object or flat figure with

unequal adjacent sides.

I did not take one picture of the whole square however

I think Place des Heros in Arras, France,

fits the definition of oblong.

 

 

I was just under the clock face for the above images.

The roof in the foreground of the above image…

 

Arras, Bell Tower

was lit up around 2200 hours.

Was happy to see I was not the only person

interested in photographing the scene.

Cee’s

Black and White Challenge.

A variety of drinks.Hot and cold drinks abroad The Q Train for

our Wedding anniversary earlier in the year.

I suspect a French breakfast at an Ibis Hotel…last year.

A warm day in Nice called for a cold drink.

 A Sunday morning coffee break was called for…

around 10 AM.

Even though it was raining this  drink was gratefully accepted.

Wits-End-PC-Windows-in-Windows

 

Decided to stick to Church windows

this week.

Saint Matthew’s Church,

Manly, Sydney.

Saint John the Baptist Church,

Arras, France.

Wesley Church in Fremantle…

Western Australia.

Finally, it maybe a stretch to call this a windows, 

however, it can be found in

Cathédrale Notre-Dame-Immaculée

(Cathedral of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception),

also known as Saint Nicholas Cathedral and also

contains the tombs of

Princess Grace and Prince Rainier

of Monaco.

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.
