Tennis fans will probably have seen

Rod Laver Arena

from ground level, or on TV, as have I.

From high up in ourr Hot Air balloon we had

our first aerial  view, last year.

And not far away is the

Melbourne Cricket Ground, site of the 1956 Olympics

and the 2006 Commonwealth Games.

Left Foreground..light towers.

A juxtaposition of…transport in Melbourne.

Sadly there was talk of banning the

horse and carriage

from Melbourne’s CBD a while back.

Rise

~~~~~

A few puffs…

of hot air…

 

into our…

 

 balloons…

soon had us rising…

 

into to the cool morning air…

and silently sailing over Melbourne

beneath a setting moon.

 

While most of Melbourne was slept

we soared into the fresh morning air…

to admire Melbourne’s skyline

as the sun rose.

A variety of outdoor seating.

Concrete outdoors settings

at Paronella Park in Queensland.

Apart from the romance behind its creation

 Paronella Park

was one of the destinations for

Australian and American solders

on R&R during world War 2.

Perhaps made from a recycled packing case??

 

Geelong Botanic Gardens.

 

Picnic table.

 Bench seat, Geelong Botanic Gardens.

 

Another bench seat, Geelong Botanic Gardens.

Some street art from Melbourne.

Not sure it was design as a seat but I have

seen it used as such.

The most simple and easiest seat to make.

Probably need a ten-ton crane to move it though.

One Word Photo Challenge-Panorama

~~~~~

Perhaps not a true panorama shot of Melbourne’s skyline…

 but my guess is that it could be described as ‘panoramic.’

After consulting the expert…Google…

I am confident that it is

a panorama and panoramic.

THURSDAY’S SPECIAL-Way

 

 

Way

While searching for this week’s post…

I found this sight-seeing bus…a way

for visitors to see Melbourne.

York’s signpost pointed the way to

various point in the city…

as did these signs on a

Freeway/Autobahn in Germany.

While visiting Fromelles we had to walk down this path…

to see the site of the Fromelles mass graves

which were recently exhumed and created

the Fromelles Military Cemetery.

 

Finally, this is the way to the

Toronto Avenue Military Cemetery

in Belgium.

Not a great variety of bikes this week.

However, they come from many locations.

On display at a nearby market day a few years back.

 

Some of Melbourne’s ‘rent a bike’ collection.

 

Brugge bikes.

Amsterdam.

MGW was nearly run down by

a motor scooter similar to this one.

It ran a red light.

After this incident we were told

the lights were/are only a ‘suggestion’ 🙂

 

Tower of London ‘rent a bike’ collection.

The peloton nearing the end of the

Cadel Evans Classic last year.

Support vehicles and bikes.

 

Four laps of Geelong to go.

 Sorrento, Naples, motorbikes
