Construction of the Palace of Versailles began in 1661
some 55 years after Willem Janszoon first sighted
Australia and just over 109 years before
Captain Cook landed at Botany Bay.
Older still is the
construction of which
commenced in 1642
The oldest of this post is
Construction of The Colosseum
began in 70AD and was completed in 80 AD
Which in 2021 makes
1950 years old
We were told, these pavers,
are part of the original building.
Imagine, nearly 2,000 years since completion,
the sheer number of feet to have walked over them
and who, in history may have walked here.
The Colosseum is definitely my oldest building
in my old, older, oldest post this week.
Dinner in Vienna saw us, if necessary…
…spending a penny in style…
…with raunchy retro themed décor
to keep us company.
Décor and images strictly from…
…the sixties, fifties…
…and maybe even earlier.
For equal opportunity I believe ladies
was decorated in similar fashion. :-0
An eclectic range of art...
…admired by an eclectic group of travellers.
The same travellers enjoyed this
Viennese collection a few days earlier.

Too cold for a photography outing this weekend
so I have had a look at some images
Not sure if I noticed the couple before
or after I took the shot, however…
…from the wide angle comes a nice photo of a couple.
…and this one…
…blended to create this image posted in
‘Capture the Moment’
for last week’s
Saint KIlda Pier…
…the wide angle shot cropped to focus
on the model and photographer.
Both model and photographer were participating
in this shoot to fulfil requirements
of a course they were taking.
Maybe…in this crop…
…and maybe not, the more space
they have around them.
From this crowded scene comes many stories.
One of which could be:
‘The shark was this big, dead set!’
This game of badminton and its two spectators
…right here on Sydney’s
During our visit to…
we were told that it was known as
the Summer Cottage…
…all 1,441 rooms of it.
The ostentatious Palace and surrounds…
…all point to an avarice family…
…demonstrating total disregard for the rest of the population.
Similarly the Palace of Versailles…
…and its surrounds…
…and its 2300 room Palace also demonstrates
the avarice nature of its owners were
in one of France’s harshest historical periods.
