Cee-BW-Challenge-Open-Topic

~~~~~

For the Open Topic I have chosen to post

photos taken in 2018,

commencing with the furthermost object…

the Moon.

A bridge, forming pat of Geelong’s Ring Road,

and although it appears fairly close…

 

it is just part of the back ground in this shot.

 

Sunrise from our front yard.

 Galahs.

Visitors to our backyard.

Galah is also a term bestowed upon someone

who has done something silly.

As in

‘…you galah…’

‘…you flaming galah…’

‘…you’re a galah…’

Click here for the Google search results.

Galah can be used in a derrogatory, or friendly, sense.

Jo’s Monday Walk

Week-49

Leaning Tower of Pisa
Italy

Before we arrived for this short walk we were advised

that there would be some ‘public transport’ to assist

our journey from bus stop to town…about 300-400 metres.

Not far but by this stage I feet were glad of any respite.

Off the bus/coach and onto McDonald’s Express.

This was my first surprise.

A hidden Tower?

Even this morning many of Google’s photos

depict the Tower in what appears to be

an uncluttered field.

And walls like this to further add some mystery to the area.

Pisa Baptistery of St. John

Pisa Cathedral

And the Leaning Tower is actually

the Cathedral’s, Bell Tower.

WE had neither time or energy to climb to the top

and decided this was close enough.

After a few obligatory photos…

we began our walk back to our coach via the market stalls…

 

stopping only occasionally to view the wares on display.

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!

Thursday’s Special: Message

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.

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.
