Word-of-Day-Challenge-Native

~~~~~

native

a person born in a specified place
or associated with a place by birth,
whether subsequently resident there or not.

My guess would be that there were not many

Parisién or French natives (in general)…

…in this queue at Palace of Versailles.

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Emotional

~~~~~

emotional

relating to a person’s emotions.

 

Although my only connection to

this cemetery is via MGW’s cousin…

Fromelles Military Cemetery

…it did not matter if it was Fromelles Cemetery

or any other Western Front War Cemetery,

it was impossible not to become

a little emotional when thinking of all

the dead, missing, injured and the age

of those lying in these graves.

Signs which are

self explanatory,

I hope.

I don’t remember taking this shot

and have never before, or since,

laid eyes on this bus.

However, according to my filing system

it was taken in Melbourne.

This was about as far as a DSLR camera could go. 

Pocket size cameras and phones

were okay, I believe.

A Tea Room on the

Western Front Battlefields

of France.

.

Self explanatory? 

All day we were hearing about Whistler

and all day I was thinking

‘…I’ve heard that name before…’   

However, only made the connection upon arrival. 

Fun fact.

  We were told that recent summer sports had

overtaken, economically, winter sports

on/at Whistler.

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Unlikely

~~~~~

unlikely

not likely to happen, be done, or be true; improbable.

When planning our time in Paris…

…it was highly unlikely that I

would not visit the Eiffel Tower…

…or visit the Moulin Rouge which was

a wonderful dinner and show.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Fashion

~~~~~

 

Fashion of all sorts.

A drawing from my Mother-in-law’s school sketch book.

Her daughters did not know she had this until

after she passed away a couple of years ago.

 

And it seems only a few years ago that

London model Twiggy,

caused a furore at the Melbourne Cup

wearing a mini skirt two whole inches

above the knee.

Hemlines have certainly changed since 1965.

 

 

 

Fashion on the gold fields in mid 1800s.

Being married anywhere is now fashionable.

Bride’s dresses have changed considerably

since the late 1970s and mid 80s.

In  my twenties I did like to dress formally for a night out.

Sadly I don’t go out as much and formally has

taken on a whole new meaning.

Fashion on a Rivera beach, Nice to be precise,

is much more relaxed.

I believe this beautiful Athabaskan

coat and hood was for formal wear.
