Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Glass
When I first saw this challenge, I wondered what glass should I have that would do well in black and white. After a while I discarded my original ideas when I found these photos.

Some of the hundreds of glass spheres as part of lighting in the lobby of the Grand Hyatt in Seoul.

The word prompt from Debbie at Travel with Intent: Shopping
As you may have guessed, I am unwell again with a stupid cold and not in the mood to do all those jobs I have to do outside. It has been a bushboy post avalanche.
Onto shopping. I am taking you shopping in Seoul, South Korea.
Down the narrow staircase we go
Now we are in the street where the colour and shops abound.
Some of the shops are multi story shops, while some are just on the pavement.
If you find a spot, plonk down and get your goods out for all to see.
Or head into the shops where there is something to tantalise.
After a while you might need a bite to eat.
And then back into the fray to find a bargain.

I wasn’t sure if I have any flags or banners but a bit of recollection pulled a few out of the folders. A varied lot. Lots of flags and banners just in here
Some colourful little flags
The clouds seems to fit nicely
The Lotus Lantern Festival banner in Seoul
Flags of the world in a market in Seoul
The flags on the structures at the No Coal Seam Gas protest in Bentley. A big win for people power

The word prompt from Nancy Merrill: Tilted
“Have you ever tilted your camera on accident and then thought “Wow, that works!” If you have some time to work with your subject (or subjects), try some shots with your camera tiled from slightly to wildly and see what happens. It can add a unique twist to a commonplace image.” – Nancy
Well, I didn’t know which way to tilt trying to get this photo of a building in Seoul
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
Another fabulous topic from Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge. My take on the topic are from a few places in our world. How are the Indoor walkway, Hallways Elevators in your world. See some other wonderful photos here

I love these steps in the Grand Hyatt in Seoul. The bubbles of lights cascade down the centre as the steps wind around.
