One-Word-Sunday-Homonym

 

~~~~~

~~~~~

My homonym word

is BANK.

Taken on the BANK of the

Wimmera River at Horsham,

Victoria.


On the bank of the River Seine

in Paris, France.

Apologies for the quality of my

Challenger Bank photo.

Among Melbourne’s skyline it was

only about 3-4 millimetres wide

in the original.

 

Again a tight crop in a bigger photo.

The People’s Bank

in Beaune,

France.

We/I have to stay with the

English version of BANK as the

French versions are totally different.

Berge de rivière…river bank

and

Banque populaire…People’s Bank

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Roofs

~~~~~

 

Roofs from everywhere.

Beginning with a Carousel roof

in Beaune, France.

 

Still in Beaune a Band Rotunda.

Another Beaune image

taken through window,

I suspect.

Moving on to Paris and

this image captured from

the Eiffel Tower.

Sadly I also suspect that this is a section of the

Notre Dame de Paris roof

that is no more….or at least badly damaged.

The roof/ceiling of Platform 9 and 3/4.

If you are a Harry Potter fan you will

know that this can be found in

London’s King’s Cross Station.

Somewhat closer to home

an Arcade roof in Melbourne

Back in Geelong, the slate roof of a Church.

I commenced  with a Carousel an now

I will end with another,

The Geelong Carousel.

Many years ago we named the

foreground artwork, ‘The Sharks Teeth’

Too many ‘Jaws’ movies I think.

Only found out this year that

they are actually sailing boats.

Even though I have seen this type of boat

on the Bay several times there was no connection

I think they always will be the ‘Sharks Teeth’  🙂

My contribution for

this week’s challenge

Random Os from

Florence, Beaune, Geelong and Sydney

Does Florence count? 🙂

 

A band rotunda in Beaune, France.

A New Holland Honey Eater courtesy of our back yard.

The Coca-Cola sign in Kings Cross, Sydney.

Of course, photos of Sydney would not

be complete without one of the

Harbour Bridge.

I have counted twenty-three Os in this post, above this line

DISCOVER CHALLENGE17_0106_Superpower

Superpower

 

The closest talent I have which may be spoken of…

beaune-grass_0018

as a superpower…

grass-beaune_0011

is take photos of mundane objects in nature

and turn them into half decent images.

I don’t consider it a superpower though…just the love of a hobby.

These sunset images were taken

outside our hotel in Beaune, France.

Brugge

Sights from Brugge Town Square/Market place.

brugge-harp_0171 I thought this young lady was setting up for some busking.

However, the gentleman talking to her soon escorted

some tourists in her direction.

Five minutes later she was gone.

Looking for tourist fares.

And our first look at a popular mode of transport,

particularly in Belgium and The Netherlands.

Beaune, France…

We walked from our hotel into Beaune…beaune-carousel_0071

 into a central square where we found this carousel and…

~~~~~

beaune-rotunda_0071maybe a covered band rotunda…

beaune_0071in a Town Square.

Feet and limbs were extremely weary by this stage

and I confess to not knowing the name of the Square

and to getting lost with a couple of KIWIs on the way back.
