FOWChallenge-Intriguing

~~~~~

While visiting Europe a few years ago,

I found it intriguing,

…that buildings like the Colosseum were constructed

nearly 2,000 years ago and are still largely intact.

Well…almost.

 

And wile the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel is talked of

on a regular basis, many other churches have similar,

though not as well-known,

art work on their ceilings also.

And  while this is not the Duomo in Florence,

it has a similar hole in the roof.

I would love to return and spend a week or so

in many of European cities.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Orange-Pink

~~~~~

I have alternated colours this week.Bags of Australian grown oranges

in Melbourne.

Pink blossom closer to home.

The manufacturer calls this colour ‘Jaffa’.

Most people refer to it as orange.

It is one of the last cars manufactured in Australia,

by General Motors Holden.

A pink Galah.

Often people who do something silly

are called galahs also.

 

 Not sure where I found this

or what it is supposed to be,

however, it is orange.

 

Who cares what colour they are.

Macaroons are always yummy.

Just not healthy.

A motor scooter in Melbourne.

 

 

I believe this photo was taken in Florence.

Just cannot remember if the bag

was for sale or

owned by a fellow traveller.

The other option was that it fell into the:

‘...Darling this matches my shoes…

and it’s only 1,000 Euro...’

category.

Week 5

Look Up

Looking Up in Florence.We had both read I, Mona Lisa, just prior to leaving on our European adventure.   

Set in Florence and mentioning visiting

the Duomo and the Bell Tower frequently

we were both happy to this site come to life.

I think this depicts a trade.

 

Whatever it is, it was

another look up moment.

 Again I was looking up and saw

a warrior (?) standing over a victim. 

I thought the victim had a lot of hair on its head..

and if I noticed the victim was a woman,

I cannot recall…but I certainly noticed today. 

I was again looking up, but…

not quite far enough!
