The Bridge of Sighs,

Florence.

Undoubtedly many remorseful villains

walked this bridge seeing

the outside world for the last time.

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!

My contribution for

this week’s challenge

Letter-O

Random Os from

Florence, Beaune, Geelong and Sydney

First up is…

the Bell Tower of Florence.

Does Florence count? 🙂

 

A band rotunda in Beaune, France.

A New Holland Honey Eater courtesy of our back yard.

The Coca-Cola sign in Kings Cross, Sydney.

Of course, photos of Sydney would not

be complete without one of the

Harbour Bridge.

I have counted twenty-three Os in this post, above this line

Cee’s

Black and White Challenge:

Backs

~~~~~

Backs from Europe this week…

 and we saw many backs walking away

from us while touring.

I guess we made the backs

for other photographers.

And while in Florence we saw this

imitation of David…but still a back.

Entering Nice one of the first things we saw

was a tarmac full of private jets.

There were times a chair would have

been quite welcome.

I even thought cycling was better than walking.

And I guess a visit to Nice would not be complete

without a tourist shot or two of sunbathers’ backs.

Travel Theme-Abroad

My

Abroad

Travel Theme.

~~~~~

Travelling to Europe last year gave us the

opportunity to see and or visit many places

we had read about or seen only as movie sets. 

Both of us had, not long before departure,

finished reading a book titled,

“I, Mona Lisa’ which was set in Florence.

The Medici family were the main characters,

The story was a fictional depiction of how,

and why, the Mona Lisa may have come to be painted.

 

The Arc de Triomphe and the Champs Elysees 

are two well known landmarks of Paris.

 This is one of the fountains inside

Dubai’s Burj Al Arab.

 

We had planned on partaking of High Tea at

the Burj Al Arab in 2013.

Unfortunately our plans had to change.

  It was, however, a 7 star experience worth waiting for.
