Archways in the centre of

Hamilton Botanical Gardens,

New Zealand.

Arch of Victory

spanning

Ballarat’s Avenue of Honour

The Ballarat Avenue of Honour is famous for being the first avenue of its kind in Australia (perhaps in the world) and the longest of its kind in the southern hemisphere.

It incorporates the Ballarat Arch of Victory and extends for approximately 22 kilometres.

Arc de Triomphe, in Paris

Finally, the…

…Arch in Ypres’

Menin Gate

in Belgium.

I had heard my Father talk of

Menin Gate all my life.

So my 2017 visit was a

truly moving experience,

to visit the battlefields

and pass along the same roads

as my Grandfather did,

during World War I,

all those years ago.

Certainly Australia’s best known arch.

Not sure how it rates on a world stage

although we are constantly told

it is recognised the world over.

Misery Creek Bridge.

 A Few years ago a falling tree bought more misery

to what remained of Misery Creek Bridge.

 

 

Sydney’s…

…Harbour Bridge.

 

 

In Botswana we came across

new bridge sporting this sign…

 

We walked slowly across this bridge only stopping

to admire the old bridge just visible on the left.

Chapel Bridge, Lucerne.

 

 

Sunrise under Melbourne’s

West Gate Bridge.

Evan Walker Pedestrian Bridge

over

Melbourne’s Yarra River

Finally, a bridge to nowhere.

Bridges from all over…

Probably Australia’s best known bridge.

Auckland Harbour Bridge, New Zealand.

 

A small rural bridge in

New Zealand’s North Island.

Arriving by ferry in Melbourne…

…and cruising under

Melbourne’s West Gate Bridge.

 

 

A footbridge in Geelong’s

Balyang Sanctuary.

 

A one lane bridge in Botswana’s

Okavango Delta.

 

Finally a bridge from my primary years of schooling.

Whoever said some of the old methods

of teaching are wrong is incorrect.

 Or maybe I am getting older and cannot remember

what I had for breakfast, but can remember incidents

and conversations which occurred nearly 60 years ago,

as if it were yesterday.  🙂

Bridges from all over.

Bridge over Rocky Mountaineer railway.

Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Auckland Harbour Bridge,

by day…

 

…and by night.

The remnants of Misery Creek Bridge.

Was in one piece until

the background tree fell on it.

A new bridge in Botswana’s

Okavango Delta.

One of my all time favourite bridges

from my school days.

The Bridge of Sighs.

Melbourne’s West Gate Bridge.

West Gate again.

Beginning in Sydney with…

the Harbour Bridge, and…

 

…the Sydney Opera House.


Visitors to Federation Square are also welcomed to

the Home of Australian Art, The National Gallery of Victoria.

At the time of its construction it caused quite a bit of controversy.

Now Apple wants to build a store on Federation Square

behind (I think) thee National Gallery.

This is not receiving public support

due to the original design of the store

and the fact that it is at Federation Square.

 


Prior to Melbourne hosting the 2006 March

Commonwealth Games, Spencer Street Station,

our first rail port of call when visiting Melbourne,

was renovated and had its name changed to

Southern Cross Station‘.

I didn’t like the changes at the time. 

Now however, totally different. 

We can travel to Southern Cross Station,

have a light meal and shop all

under the Southern Cross roof. 

Now camera gear is the only thing which will take me

a few blocks in to the Central Business District.

Decided to focus on Sydney this week.

Two images of…

…the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

 

And…

…two  images of the Sydney Opera House…

…taken from the Bridge.

Probably safe to say that water is the only

non man-made item in these shots.

My

Lock

 Challenge

An old lock on a church  door.

 

Always thought padlocks were secure,

until I had to cut one with a hacksaw.

Took all of fifteen seconds to cut through.

 

A lone love lock on Sydney Harbour Bridge.

 

but these are on…

on the Makartsteg bridge over

the Salzach River, in Salzburg.
