Has she a voice

Voices of past
One of my favourite ancient sites is Pompeii. Among the ruins is pieces of art that have remained intact since the fateful eruption of Mt Vesuvius in AD 79. Take a bit of a scroll with me and have a poke around the houses and buildings of Pompeii.

One of the grand buildings
The courtyard of a wealthy citizens house
Birds figured in a number of designs on the walls
Repeating patterns on many of the walls decorating the houses
Some included figures
Some fresco’s were colourful
My last view of Pompeii
I am getting so lucky with photo challenges lining up for me, although it’s a bit of a stretch for Jude’s Orange challenge where she asked “Where have you seen orange?”
It is a Past Square from #SquareTime and it is from the distant past. A wonderful vessel at Pompeii which held the families food. A bit big for my pantry though.
If the vessel isn’t orange enough, maybe the columns from down the road a bit are?
Of course there has to be a song. This is an Australian song that was a big hit. I hope you enjoy it
First is the #PastSquare from the #RoofSquare
Onto a few things that have seen better days
An Australian made car from the 1950’s – a Holden FX
Would you ride this coach?
or go to town in this wagon?
This house is still much the same last time I drove past
Pompeii has definitely seen better days. Also from #SquareTime
This house too is still standing
The Colosseum is maintaining it’s better days appearance
The old truck that “lives” in my street
The remains of bird baths I’ve had over the years. Usually broken by possums trying to find a drink in droughts as I don’t think I have fat birds around here. This was from the #SquareUp
The feature photo is my old chook shed used in #RoofSquare
