The word prompt for Bren’s Photo a Week:
Chimneys and Fireplaces
My biggest chimney from Scotland
A trio of serious looking chimney pots
Chimney pots from Paris
This chimney pot in Paris reminded me of Ned Kelly
The fireplace of a good friend who lived down the road. He built his house from rock and timber on the land. I went back to see what had happened to his place years after he had moved and later died before his wife sold the property. A lot of the house had rotted away, exposing the place to the elements. Of everything, the kitchen fireplace remained.

The quote to inspire from Debbie at

perhaps to touch the stars.
Or look down
into the depths of darkness.

showing the way.
Always try to take that step,
sometimes that step can be daunting.
Again, Paula had me thinking of some photos to match her words for

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge Week 1:
Photo Geometry, bushes, window, brick, curtain, green, tan, wall, building, dark red, tree
What a selection Cee has chosen for us to pick from. I think it may be several posts if I get the inspiration. This post started off as Geometry but a few Windows appeared.
Some geometry from inside an art work in the Centre Pompidou Paris
Another art work from the Centre Pompidou – some neon geometry
Once I thought of geometry, along came some stained glass windows as well. A church in Lyon France
The wonderful stained glass windows from the Segrada Familia in Barcelona

A fun fountain near the Centre Pompidou Paris. Always love to get an elephant photo
