A Square of High Roofs

Taken from an even higher place, the Kuala Lumpur Tower.

AS this was ten years ago, I expect that a few more high roof tops have been added since. Here’s Becky’s Bug Hotel, she’d be delighted if you joined in.

Paula’s thursday Special

Paula’s in her third year of Thursday Special challenges, what an achievement. Those of you who don’t know Paula might be interested in joining in now that the WordPress challenges are no more. She offers five words and posts an example of each, her pullulating shot is amazing.

I’m choosing reflective, because the Museum of the History of Polish Jews not only reflects the beautiful grounds it stands in, but going inside makes you reflect on the inhumanity of humankind.

Paula would love to see you!

 

A final favourite

Isn’t it difficult to choose a favourite photo, from a vast archive? Some of the photos I love best are of my grandchildren, but posting those would add even more problems because I’d have to pick four!

So I decided to think about places I’ve been, and I think that our favourites are likely to be the ones that evoke the strongest memories. I’ll always remember the morning I took this photo and I’ve posted the story of it here and before.

I’m not sure if linking to the final weekly photo challenge  is still possible, but I will really miss creating the posts. I’ve been blogging for 7 years and have probably only missed 20 in that time.

Thanks to WordPress and the amazing  Daily Post team, I’ve made lots of friends around the world and learnt about things and places I’ll never see,

Twisted bits

I’m having one of those spells where I’m all behind with everything, blogging included, and it’s not likely to improve much for a couple of weeks. I did read that the Weekly Photo Challenges are coming to an end, so I decided to post for the penultimate one, the theme of which is twisted. I hope these images, taken in Sicily, fit the bill.

It’s a pity it’s ending, but as Jude said it has become a bit repetitive recently. It’s been a great way of making friends, from all over the world. there are lots of smaller challenges of all kinds, and who knows, Lucid Gypsy might become a little less photo lead.

Black and white Sunday

My first black and white Sunday for a while, and this week Paula’s chosen ‘after before’. She’d like to see the same photo, before and after it’s converted to monochrome. When flying out of Pisa last year, we made a brief stop at the Piazza dei Miracoli, to see the famous leaning tower.

I wasn’t expecting to see a fallen angel, but there on the grass broken  and forlorn, lay the Angelo Caduto by Polish sculptor Igor Mitoraj.

Does he look better in colour?

I don’t think so, the people ignoring him as they walk on by are distracting. Apparently Pisa is a temporary home, he may have flown on by now.

#MarchSquare 31

When Becky began her March Square challenge I wasn’t sure I’d manage to post every day, so I started a folder on my desktop and saved quite a few photos there. These are some of the leftovers, all taken in Turkey.If you click an image you can see a bigger view.

And my very last photo, one I know that my antipodean friend will love.

Beck, a great big thank you hug, so many people have enjoyed this challenge!
