Going round

Debbie’s One Word Sunday: Vertiginous

I’m going with Debbie’s alternate word Spiral so try not to get too dizzy or a case of vertigo. Just in case have a listen to a bit of Eric Clapton

The well worn stairs of our Paris apartment

Spiral stairs go round

Shiny and new so round you go.

A new spiral of life

A long process for art

Down the spiral stairs with a cascade of bubble lights

Everyone safe?

Travel Challenge day 3

I was nominated by my friend Judy Dykstra-Brown to post one favorite travel picture a day for ten days without explanation, then to nominate someone else to participate. That’s 10 days, 10 travel pictures, and 10 nominations. Let’s see if I can make it to the end of ten days, but for now I nominate Anita
Post wherever you wish but link to me so I know you have. If you are not interested, that’s OK.

Unusual

The July photo a day challenge 7/7 from Maria at CitySonnet: Unusual

I found this painting in the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Seoul South Korea which you must admit is unusual. I should have taken a photo from further back as I saw a painting of Marilyn Monroe on the wall. As I got closer…well you can see for yourself
