Jewellery

 Challenge

Some ‘jewels’ on a foggy morning.

Back in the day, the term ‘crown jewels’

had a slightly different meaning.

 Let’s just say the wearer of this suit of armour

was having his ‘crown jewels’ well protected.

Perhaps even…boasting..a lot.

 

 Finishing on a serious note.

This jewellery was ready for sale

at the Arras Sunday market.

Cee’s

Black and White Challenge:

Buildings

~~~~~

My buildings mostly come from York…
with the exception of the first.

The Kings Cross Station Roof in London,

which looks much better in colour.

All the other images are…. buildings in York.

Dated 1489

Probably a little newer than 1489.

 Not sure what the building is but included this

because of the Captain James Cook ferry

on the River Ouse.

Red

 

I think my first photo will…

indicated which country…

london-red_0486

and city we are in this week.

london-red_0053

I have been wanting to use this image for a while.

Over $AUD3.00 to sit down for an hour!?

And yet there must have been 50 or more

deck chairs just waiting for a sitter.

Or maybe the empty ones belong to those Londoners

who purchased a Season Ticket for just under $AUD180.00.

 And finally the London Eye, just on dusk.

Travel Theme-March

My

March

Travel Theme.

As many visitors do we waited at

Buckingham Palace for

the Changing of the Guard…or at least part of it.

We watched as a steady stream of tourists

marched to the Palace

And then were surprised to see a band marching from

the Palace precinct down The Mall…

 buckingham_palace_0803

followed by this group.

My feet envied this group.

 buckingham_palace_0824And still tourists came…

buckingham_palace_0823

in their groups.

Finally the ceremony began.

However, I have been left wondering if budget constraints

have reduced the size, or number,

of personnel participating in this ceremony.

I am sure it was a grander affair in 1976.

But then again, wasn’t everything better

when we were younger.
