The word prompt from Nancy this week is Public Transportation
Here is my selection of Transportation
The fast trains in Europe are fast trains
The boats came through the locks on the canal near to our Paris apartment
The Helicopter is used for patient transportation to the hospital. Here it is taking off to another job.
And off they go for holiday
The daily Post word prompt: Sleeve
a Paris market
You caught my eye.

A great photo challenge from Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Things Made of Wood
So many things made of wood to choose from. Here is just a few
The hand made wooden pier at a friends place
The eagles nest
An old wooden bridge
My friends wooden seat. It is very comfortable
The stairway leading to the flat in Paris

A blue bottle left on a plinth with blue graffiti in Bologna
Chimney pots in Paris

Looking through to a garden in Rome.
One of the many colonnades in Bologna
Letting the ferry through the lock in Paris
Looking through time in the 12th Century church in Verona
Not many through photos from Australia as the ideas of those came to late

The well worn stairs in the lighthouse at Cape Otway in Victoria Australia
The stairs in the apartment building we stayed in in Paris. Seven flights made sure you remembered everything before adventuring in Paris.
But also the winding that most photographers do with their tripods
