Official doors of Europe

Dan’s Thursday Doors

More doors from Europe, but not anything like I have been posting over the past few Thursdays.

One of my visits to Europe I took a lot of photos of Police vehicles. My nephew is in the NSW Police Service and at the time, he just commenced driving for the Highway Patrol.

I thought I would get him a selection of Police vehicles when I found them in my travels.

They went from small and cute in Barcelona

Still cute in Vienna

Yes they do have Police cars in Venice

These blokes looked quite serious when driving in Rome

Not sure what was happening in Nice

There must have been something happening as the police were away from their car in Split, Croatia

The Slovenian Police car is quite snazzy

Now they are getting serious in Rome. When the door is open it says CAR on the side

When the Police van pulled into the square in Pisa I wondered what was happening so I avoided the Leaning Tower and went straight to the nearest and quietest pizzeria. Yes another quest success, to have a pizza in Pisa

Another Police van this time parked in Vienna

I should finish on cute again with Police boat patrolling the canals of Venice

Going back to Italy

Dan’s Thursday Doors

The doors of Italy. I must have some Italian blood as I just love going there every time I head to Europe. Let’s begin in Genoa with a very impressive doorway and a door that is dwarfed by the surrounding doorway.

A heraldic shield and impressive entrance in Verona

The wooden door from Milan with studs, brick arch and moulding

This could be a church door in Bologna

Whizzing along

Ragtag Daily Prompt Friday: Limit

We boarded the train
and headed off
what to discover
the countryside
at every second

Comfortable seats
room to spare
further along
the food trolley
almost here

But look
I say
the limit
Whizzing along

Later on……

Hit play and have some memories while you browse the next few posts

Looking at mountains

The Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #222: Mountains are Calling

I did wonder if I had many mountain landscape photos. I did a quick look around and found a few.

Maybe have a listen to my favourite mountain song

I love this view of Mt Vesuvius from Pompeii

Sometimes when heading home the mountains are tinged with blue and shrouded in fog

Cradle Mountain in Tasmania still with snow in October

Mount Wollumbin in the distance

It is a place of myths and legends. The mountain has always been a place of cultural and traditional significance to the Bundjalung people, a is the site for many ceremonies and initiation rites. In Aboriginal legend, Wollumbin was a giant bird, speared by a warrior. That fatal spear is still visible as a point on the summit. Another legend is that fighting warriors cause the lightning and thunder which is often observed in the area around Wollumbin.

My favourite place to rest and recharge. This was taken after the fires of 2019 showing the Gibraltar Ranges bald spots from Raspberry Lookout

Some days at Raspberry Lookout, the blue and an air of mystery makes me gasp

Of course there is always a sun setting on a mountain as the mountains are west from my place
