Still in Venice,

we were told that these posts…

in the water

…were channel/street corner markers.

The number of posts, in each marker,

was significant also.

Much of the romance of a Viennese Gondola ride…

…was swept away by the smells

of rotting wooden doorways

exposed due to lower

water levels on the day.

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Resolution

~~~~~

resolution

Image resolution is the detail an image holds.
~~~~~

Most of my images are…

  …600 pixels on the long side

with a minimum file size.

I do lose image quality but it saves

a great deal of space at WordPress’ end.

For example these two images

are 42 and 60 kb respectively.

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Renewal

~~~~~

renewal

an instance of resuming something
after an interruption.

One of the most moving sites we visited

was next to the Prowse Point Military Cemetery,

in Belgium.

Prowse Point was of one of

the 1914 Christmas truces.

Apparently both sides were singing Christmas Carols

and eventually decided to lay down

their arms for the day.

  However all that changed once the British Command

heard of what was going on.


They ordered the renewal of hostility and soldiers from both sides

of the battle who had formed friendships for a short while

were again trying the kill each other.

So sad!
