Dutch goes the Photo word prompt Message inspired me and I just had to put this photo up again.
I saw this on the street in Ballina, a town just up the road a ways. At the time, and still now a couple of years later, it is a silent protest at the Australian Government holding refugee children in detention.
The Tuesday Photo Challenge word prompt from Frank: Build has elicited some great entries. Well worth a visit to Dutch goes the Photo
As is my usual want, here are some builds from nature. I have posted bird nests over the past few weeks so I thought I would put some insect builds
The caterpillar builds it’s cocoon from sticks woven with silk thread.
I still don’t know whose nest this is. I have the piece of wood on my verandah waiting to see if anyone emerges. Isn’t it a fabulous build?
The Bull Ants build a large mound and if anyone comes near, out they come to defend their nest.
The spiders web is a fascinating build. This one I found on the ground, complete with dew drops sparkling like jewels, before the suns warmth melted it away
The word prompt from Frank at Dutch goes the Photo is Progress
Remember writing letters? The letters progressed from here………
I don’t really like combine photo challenges but my blog bestie Paula and Frank have set the challenges that are quite easy to combine. So for Thursdays Special: Traces of the Past from Lost in Translation and Tuesday Photo Challenge – Bridge from Dutch goes the Photo here are my Bridges from the Past.
The first Bridge is the Pont Saint-Bénézet or Pont d’Avignon over the Rhone River at Avignon. It’s not much of a bridge as it doesn’t go all the way across the Rhone but still attracts lots of tourists every year
Another not really a Bridge is the Pont du Gard which is an aqueduct which crosses the Gardon River. It is a three story bridge
In Verona is the Bridge the Castelvecchio or Old Castle which crosses the Adige River. A beautiful red brick example of Gothic architecture.
A colourful Bridge in Vienna in a marina and leads to fun park on the River Danube.
How many Bridges can you count that cross the Arno River in Florence?
Of course my favourite Bridge is the Ponte Vecchio in Florence.
In a garden in Seoul is a pretty little Bridge crossing a tiny babbling brook.
I could not let a Bridge or a Traces of the Past photo challenge go by without putting in the wonderful little Bridges in Venice.
These little Bridges lead to the apartment in Venice where we love to stay out of the tourist areas.
Thanks for coming across my Bridge and into the Traces of the Past
Frank’s word prompt Kitchen had me thinking. I love this kitchen.
Many years ago a good friend and neighbour built his cabin from stone. He moved when he married and his house slowly disintegrated as his brother had his own dwelling on the property. Prior to the new owners moving in, I went for a look around to see what was left of the house. This is Gary’s kitchen.

When Frank proposed the topic of Bird I said I was only going to do one but I had to add another. This is the photo that came to mind from Franks Gull prompt photo.
