We visited

Notre Dame Cathedral

in September,

2016

Built 800 years ago.

Took 200 Years to build.


And a mere six hours to burn…

Dubai’s

Burj Khalifa Tower…

…and a view of downtown Dubai from the 

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

This was the highest observation deck in the world

on October 15, 2014, until the

Shanghai Tower opened in June 2016.

FOWChallenge-Optional

~~~~~““

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’

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.

I’m being a rebel this week and not walking a bank…

but photographing one.

Images are not so good..my apologies…but you get the idea.

Tourists or locals?

whichever, it was a great way to spend our last evening in…

 

Paris.

FOWChallenge-Intersection

~~~~~

Since our visit to…

the Champs Elysees and…


marveling at the amount of traffic pass around l’Arc de Triomphe,

I have often commented that it appeared to be

the intersection of 4 or 5 roads. 

This morning Google maps tells me I am incorrect. 

There are actually 12 roads intersecting at l’Arc de Triomphe.

A pity there has been so much trouble in that area

over the past week or so.

FOWChallenge-Stability

~~~~~

During one of this weekend’s news/current affairs

shows, I heard that Notre Dame de Paris

Had lost much of its stability,

particularly to the right of this photo.

 Apparently the walls are only being held in place…


By these ageing ‘stays’ for lack of a better word.


Gargoyles were said to be falling and stone fences

around the roof have wooden replacements.

It was said that hundreds of millions of dollars

were needed to give the Cathedral a

thorough make over to take

the instability out of the building.
