Dinner in Vienna saw us, if necessary…

…spending a penny in style…

…with raunchy retro themed décor

to  keep us company.

 

Décor and images strictly from…

…the sixties, fifties…

…and maybe even earlier.

 

For equal opportunity I believe ladies

was decorated in similar fashion. :-0

The Grand Staircase at Paronella Park

in Far North Queensland.

The steps with plaques

mark flood levels.

 

Steps at St. Paul de Vence

in France.

 

 

 

Melbourne steps are closer to home.

 

 

Southern Cross Station Steps

in Melbourne.

Same steps, different view.

I usually take the escalators either side

of these steps.

Visual treats

Visiting Notre de Dame de Paris was a real treat…

…made all the more special after the Cathedral…

…was ravaged by fire with 12 months.

I guess I have seen the Eiffel Tower…

…lit up in movies, however seeing it

in person was fantastic.

The Moulin Rouge was also a

must see in Paris.

I doubt that even in my younger days

would I have gone fishing

in the vicinity of white water…

 

…let alone the white water of Victoria Falls.

An optional helicopter flight over Victoria Falls…

 …to view the effect the rushing waters of

the Zambezi River has had on the landscape

leaving previous falls sites high and dry.

A goodbye London special treat was

a ride on the London Eye.

 

Well worth the time for some nice views of London…

…after dark.

Finally…

…after hearing my Father speak of Menin Gate

from time to time, I was pleased to find

a tour group that included a visit

to Menin Gate in its

Western Front itinerary.

 

So it was that in early June of 2017,

before a relatively small crowd, I was

part of the ceremony that commemorates

the Great War each and every night.

Three local buglers performed the last post

in a simple but moving ceremony at Ypres’

Menin Gate, in Belgium

The Watchman

Ever since I photographed this art

I have called it

Blockhead,

Street Art at St Paul de Vence,

in France.

Research today tells me otherwise.

So no blocks this week.   🙂

Similar to haystacks which for many decades

I carefully built each year only to commence

pulling them down within a few weeks.

These bales do resemble building blocks, don’t they?

At Manly Beach…

…these girls were applying suntan oil

to exposed parts of their body.

Sun lovers on the French Riviera did not seem

to worry about protecting themselves.
