I~~~~~

I  will never forget the morning I took these shots.

It was my first morning in London with MGW,

and while I turned to take these photos she disappeared.

 The crowd behind me was as dense

as the crowd in front of me. 

I had about twenty yards of clear vision. 

I did not know whether MGW had crossed

Westminster Bridge or followed

the white bus along the Thames River.

After the longest ten minutes in my life

MGW appeared on the bridge

wanting to know what I was doing! 

And why I was standing there at/near Big Ben.

Of course she had told me she was

crossing the bridge!!!!!!

I’m sure I did not have this problem back in 1976!!

Week 1 Signs

Signs from Australia, Botswana,

Great Britain and France.

A tradesman’s sign, or service provided,

above his/her shop door.

 

No fast crossings.

 Personally, I think we are more likely to say “G’day”

 

A tea-room in The Somme.

My favourite sign in London.

Not certain exactly where, however,

we were on our way to the Apple store.

Week 119

People

Over the past twelve months, or so,

we have seen people doing many things.

Sun-baking on a stone beach at Nice.

 ~~~~~

Many of us grumble that our early entry to

the Palace of Versailles was not that privileged…

until we completed our tour and sighted

the line of people waiting to enter.

 

More people at Menin Gate Last Post Ceremony.

 

 By comparison, to some of the European sites we visited,

London’s Trafalgar Square

was almost empty.

THURSDAY’S SPECIAL-Traces-of-the-Past-2

Traces of the Past-2

This week back to London and

its infamous Tower.

Ruins within the Tower of London.

From history books I only know the catapult

to be a weapon of war.

 These carts and boxes also from a distant era.


Finally, the Scavenger’s Daughter. 

We have all heard of The Rack which stretches bodies.

Well the Scavenger’s Daughter crushes bodies

as they are folded into a kneeling position

which sees knees against chest.
