I will concede to cropping

just below the hedge top…

…and wondering what was in the foreground.

 

 

Then I moved onto my next photo.

The entrance to the Club Quarters Hotel in London.

Moving from

St James Park

to the

Tower of london.

I have tagged these as Petunias, however,

the length of the stems suggests it may be

a Geranium of sorts.

SUNDAY-STILLS-PC-Work-2

 

~~~~~

 

Seeing as there is no official challenge this week,

I thought I would add to last week’s offering.

Last week I posted this photo and commentary….

Amid that crowd is a Beefeater at work

guiding tourists around the Tower of London.

and did not realise…

 

I had a better/close up photo of the man at work.

This from my 2017 trip to Arras, France.

Phil, an Aussie, operates Sacred Ground Tours

out of Arras across World War I Battlefields.  

Serre Road Cemetery No. 2 was

the first cemetery we visited. 

Phil is showing us how easy it is to find

a grave of a relative who perished in France.   

Easy if you know which cemetery to visit. 

If your relative is one of the tens of thousands

with no known grave, or an unknown soldier’s grave….

then that is a different story.

Workers from all over…

A gondolier.

My limited knowledge of lumberjacks’ work

tells me that they actually did climb trees

as part of every day work.

Memory could be way off though.

Happy to be corrected.

Beefeater Guide Tour

Amid that crowd is a Beefeater at work

guiding visitors around

the Tower of London.

 

While in Europe each guide carried a flag of some kind. 

Trouble was there was so much to see

and dawdle over, the coloured flag

was often forgotten (by me). 

All guides were very knowledgeable but

sometimes it was just nice to walk and look

without the constant commentary.

Our favourite African guide,

planning the next day. 

Or was he offering up thanks for

a successful day just ended?

Today a quick visit to London then

off to Africa for costumes.A Beefeater at the Tower of London.

Outdoor entertainment at Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe.

This group of young entertainers danced and

sang their way through many songs…

and costume changes during their performance

on the last day of what we thought was

our first and last visit to Africa.

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.
