And there it was

Lens-Artists Challenge #183: Memorable Events

I have been trying to think of something for this challenge. I have something that will always stick in my mind.

Almost ten years ago I convinced my bestie to travel with me to Europe. I had been a few years before and just had to go back and find some new places and re visit some places I had been before.

We took off from Australia, travelling via South Korea, we landed in Rome at midnight. A driver picked us up and we went to our accommodation, a Wimdu shared place. Wimdu was an AirBnB type of accommodation finder. The people were lovely and Alba and Mauritsio welcomed us into their home.

The next day we caught the bus to the city centre and once at the Termini, we started walking. We stopped at the Basilica Papale di Santa Maria Maggiore and then walked on.

Rounding the corner there was the Colosseum. I shall never forget the look on her face when she first saw this wonderful building. This shall live with me forever .

From the past

The Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #168: Seen Better Days
Becky’s Square Photo Challenge: Past Squares

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

Let’s go over there

The Lens-Artist Photo Challenge #140: A Change of Scenery

As we are travelling a bit, let’s take some music with us. This is an Aussie band called Fraternity. You may recognised the singer playing the recorder. It’s Bon Scott, the lead singer of ACDC when they first started out, before his time in ACDC.

Going into the yard

Ragtag Daily Prompt Sunday: Yard

In the older cattle yards

And to the new yards

Even some birds have a yard. Satin Bowerbirds hang in their yard and have a dance while singing a tune

A photo of my yard not all that long ago

A peek into a yard in Rome

Some yards are big enough for a horse

Didn’t think of shipyard until the last moment

Someones front yard

A rather eccentric front yard

A bit of a drive through the front yard to get to the house

Please shut the gate

There is always a restful seat in my other yard
