I happened to spot this harpist

setting up in Brugge.

What appeared to be tourists

were being lead her way.

Five minutes later not a sign of her.

Must be the shortest practice/busking

session ever.

 

I know I posted this image last week,

however, looking at again I could not help

but wonder if this bloke could practice

his pick up technique a bit more?

 

Even Lucerne’s famous Chapel Bridge,

which crosses the Reuss River is an ideal place

to hone one’s skills and perhaps glean

a few tourist dollars/euros in the process.

A Bourke Street, Melbourne, busker

 

What a way to practice one’s

Twister skills and…

 

…pay a bill or two at the same time.

I love this image.

The very young appreciating

the older generation’s skills.

Something not seen or heard very often

these days….unfortunately.

fountain…

 

 

…in Brugge,

Belgium

Whether in Black and White…

…or a colourful abstract…

…the El Alamein Fountain at

Sydney’s, King’s Cross

makes for spectacular viewing.

 

Back home again and just inside

the main gate to Geelong’s

Botanic Gardens is a fountain,

which on the few occasions I have visited

the Gardens, has been inactive.

It also was our shopping centre

whilst  living on the farm.

A week or so ago I posted

this image of statues outside…

…Saint Salvator’s Cathedral

in Brugge, Belgium.

To the right of the  first photo is this one…

…which is part of this end of the Cathedral.

Ludwig of Monday Windows

asked about the bricked in windows.

Construction of this version of the Cathedral began

in 1250 and was completed around 1350.

In 1696 William III introduced a window tax in England.

Building owners were taxed according to

the number of windows in their building.

Consequently some owners bricked in

their windows to avoid paying the tax.

Source-Google: Why are windows bricked in

Would it be fair to assume that this is

the reason for bricking in these

windows also?

 

This is the trigger photo for this post.

A cropped section of my previous image.

Except for the signs, this could be a shop window

almost anywhere in the world.

Although Melbourne would have to be excluded

until least mid-September this year.

Just about all retail is closed until then.

Still in Brugge.

 

To the best of my knowledge this is

definitely not an Australian building.

Last from Brugge and Belgium.
