A Leaning Tower at Pisa
Towering Redwoods in Rotorua
Light house towers.
Burj Khalifa Tower…
…and a view of downtown Dubai from the
Observation Deck on the 148th floor (555 m or 1,821 ft).
This was the highest observation deck in the world
on October 15, 2014, until the
Shanghai Tower opened in June 2016.
Eiffel Tower, Paris.
I often wonder who lived here and why/when they moved.
The house was looking much like this
nearly fifteen years ago and only deteriorated.
Then the bulldozer moved in
to complete the demolition.
I often wonder what this was.
A public hall?
Or maybe a simple house?
Whatever it was I think it well beyond repair.
But if those walls could talk….
Now I am wondering was my post form yesterday
a premonition of sorts???
And I also find myself wondering how amazing
buildings of the magnitude of Dubai’s
Burj Khalifa are constructed.
Similar comments could be made about
the Colosseum, the Pyramids, Stonehenge, Great Wall of China,
just to name a few, of the ancient landmarks
many of us visit and are in awe of.
Apart from brief walks to and from railway stations
Dubai was a wonderful place to visit.
The unseasonal October heat (for us) was overpowering.
So getting to the Burj Khalifa was relatively easy
as was the ride to the 148th floor observation deck which
at 555 metres above ground level was
the world’s highest observation deck in 2016.
around 20 degrees when we stepped out
to take these photos.
Early morning February sun on Corio Bay.
Whether in a steaming mug of milk coffee
or straight out of the fridge…
milk is a marvellous food/drink.
