Thursday Special: a bit more

Finding one photo was difficult so I have picked a few that were very challenging from my favourite photo challenge Pick a Word. What photos would you have chosen for these words. Have a look at everyone elses favourites for 2017 at Lost in Translation

Thursdays Special: your best photo of 2017

As the year winds down, Paula has asked not for a difficult photo challenge, but for the best submitted to Lost in Translation for 2017.

I have chosen the photo that Paula found special in 2017 with the word prompt Nautical from the Pick a Word in August. It almost matches Paulas photo as mine is from Rovinj as well

I am looking forward to more of my friend Paulas photo challenges in 2018 as it was a Pick a Word way back in February that started me with photo challenges. In case you didn’t see this blog, have a look at Something happened in 2017

Thursdays Special: Darkness and Light

This Thursdays Special photo challenge prompt: Darkness and Light

When darkness falls,
Who will light my way.
From the shadows
the Dark of Night
reaching out
ebony fingers
the Dark of Night.
171221_blog challenge_darkness and light_moon05

Behind the shadows
moving,
watching,
being there.
the Dark of Night
171221_blog challenge_darkness and light_moon01

Coming to Light
my way
defying
the Dark of Night
171221_blog challenge_darkness and light_moon03

Brighter
a glow in the distance
shapes appear.
Finding a path
the Dark of Night
171221_blog challenge_darkness and light_moon04

Look
a Light
illuminating my world
Parting the clouds
the Dark of Night
My Moon
my wonderful Moon
being my Light in
the Dark of Night.

Thursdays Special: Tradition

At this time of year tradition appears everywhere. In shops, in the streets, houses being lit up with Christmas lights and inside the homes decorations appear.

Here is a bit of my Christmas tradition.

The “tree” goes up and gets decorated.

Traces of the Past – Bridge

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
