THURSDAY’S SPECIAL-Message

 

 

When I think of sending a message to someone these days I generally turn Facebook’s Messenger.

I have no idea who Dave is, but we can

message/talk to each other before agreeing,

or disagreeing, on a sale price.

No more hand written notes!

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Letter-V

~~~

My contribution for

this week’s challenge

Letter-V

(Needs to start with V…contain at least 6 letters)

Monaco during our 2016 holiday/Vacation

Part of the Moorabool Valley near Geelong.

 

 

Most buildings in Amsterdam are Vertical, however,

some do lean like the Tower of Pisa.

 

Even from an altitude of 40,000 feet it is difficult

to appreciate the Vastness of the Antarctic ice pack.

I always The Creation of Adam would dominate

the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican City.

  However it was swallowed up by surrounding panels.

According to Wikipedia it is substantial

9 ft 2 in × 18 ft 8 inches, it is so far above

one’s head it seems you could

hold it in your hands.

A halo around the moon has always

said to be a sign of rain.

Our temperature dropped from 40 plus, one day,

to around 20 degrees the next.

And there it has remained.

Since Friday we have received an inch of rain since.

Just the sort of weather we need in summer.

No fires.

Not good for tourists and holiday makers though.

However, we do still have February to come.

And the weather forecast is for more heat next week.

Cee-BW-Challenge-Corners

~~~~~

First up we have two…

corner units for a bedroom or else where.

These pylons in Venice’s Grand Canal

are effectively street corners as

they mark the corners/intersection of waterways

in the same fashion as a street corner does.

Finally, VC Corner near Fromelles, in France.

Not sure why it was named VC  Corner.

No VCs (Victoria Crosses…the highest award for bravery

in the British/Australian Army)

as no VCs were awarded.

However I read that fighting was so fierce

that all soldiers fighting here should have been

awarded a Victoria Cross.

THURSDAY’S SPECIAL-Traces-of-the-Past

 

 

Maybe a weird slant of Traces of the Past this week. 

If my memory serves me well, when we see sun light

it has taken about eight minutes to

travel across space to our planet. 

So when we see the sun just peeking over the horizon,

we are actually seeing light

generated eight minutes in the past.

If we could see the sun in ‘real time’ it may look like this shot.

 

Conversely when the sun is setting,

this is old energy we are seeing.

The sun may be at this level and

when it seems to be at this level

the sun is actually below the horizon.

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Apart from my scalp… I couldn’t think…

of anything more weathered….

than these houses.

Then I found….

some weathered pieces of wood.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Letter-U

~~~

My contribution for

this week’s challenge

Letter-U

(Needs to have letters O and U in the word)

Again a random selection of U with O words.South Africa’s Drackensberg Mountains.

  My new second-hand Ford Courier Ute…first day home.

 

After an early start for nearly an hour drive

to reach the Point Lonsdale Lighthouse

for a sunrise which was rather uninspiring.

My bonus shots came as I walked

back to the car.

This rainbow formed in the east and

lasted for about two minutes.

Hard  to believe this elephant

turned rogue when his mother died

and killed six hippopotamuses.

 

 Since having a nasty removed from my scalp

in mid-November, I have been wearing

a dressing, much to my disgust,

which every now and then starts to

let me know there is a healing wound up there.

See below.

If you are about to have breakfast, lunch or dinner…

maybe wait! 🙂

 

All the medical  professionals tell me

not to worry it is ‘just some slough‘.

I would call it puss or something similar.

Thank you Cee for including the ‘ou’ combination.

I may not have thought of it otherwise.

Fortunately, it is just about healed

and today it has a mate.

Smaller, less dangerous.

But still has to heal.
