Observation Deck on the 148th floor (555 m or 1,821 ft).

This was the highest observation deck in the world

Shanghai Tower opened in June 2016.

optional

available to be chosen but not obligatory.

 

During our visit to Europe in 2016

there optional extras nearly every day

…such as this Gondola ride in Venice, and…

…a night at the Moulin Rouge in Paris.

After a twenty-four hour plane trip to London

we just could not pass up

on any of these ‘optionals’

FOWChallenge-Tribute

~~~~~““

During my 2017 visit to

The Western Front Battlefields

in France and Belgium…

I came across the

Lochnagar Crater Memorial.

 

THe crater was created by detonating 27,000 tons

of explosives under the

German Front Line

Surrounding the crater are tributes and memorials

to many men and women who served…

on the Western Front during

the Great War.


The boardwalk around the crater is created by 4 inch planks. 

At either end of these planks a small tribute

can be placed to commemorate one’s relatives.

   

I placed/paid for this tribute to my Grandfather

who served all along the Western Front

after being part of the gun crew

which fired the First Allied Shot of World War I

from Point Nepean at the mouth of

Port Phillip Bay,

Victoria. 

The time was 1245, August 5th, 1914…   

a mere 2-3 hours after War had been declared in London

at 11 PM the previous night…August 4.

Lest We Forget.

I did have thoughts of…

…using an assortment of images…

…from our visit to Europe.

Then I found these, most of which…

I have never previously posted.

 

 

Our last night in Paris proved enjoyable

from a photography sense and

a great way to end our visit.

Tourists or locals?

Paris.
