The photo challenge from Travelling at Wits End: When One Door Closes
I must admit I have a door fetish when travelling in Europe. I had to stop myself from posting too many. But you can’t have too many door photos can you?
The oldest door from Avignon
Another old door in Bologna
A glass door somewhere in France
A church door in Bologna
An ornate door in Dijon
A studded door in Milan
A door that has stayed up too late from Genoa
A door in Avignon with street art
Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge : Places People Visit
I am going to be very home town for places people visit. At this time of year, my town of Grafton is awash with purple. The Jacaranda trees are starting to come into flower and the town is gearing up for the annual Jacaranda Festival.
The Jacaranda Festival is the longest running floral festival in Australia. People come from all over the world to Grafton to visit and wander the town, look at the gardens and marvel at the purple everywhere.
The trees look a treat
There is even a few White Jacaranda trees around town
The streets look a treat. When the blossoms drop the ground is a carpet of purple.
Even the birds like to nest in the Jacaranda trees
There is poignant street art.
I have some people booked into my place this weekend from Taiwan so maybe I will have a busy few days over the weeks to come at the Durranbah Bush Retreat

Again, Paula had me thinking of some photos to match her words for Pick a Word
I delved into my holiday folders for most of photos except one where I had some lovely triplets.

The Tuesday Photo Challenge from Frank at Dutch goes the Photo!: Our World
A mixture of places I have been.
And my take home message
My eighteenth photo for Becky’s square photo challenge: In the Pink
A lovely visit to the Island of Burano, Italy. Houses of colour and quiet back streets away from the tourist throng.
If you want to join in here are a few ideas from Becky.
The theme for squares this month is ‘In the Pink‘ and the one rule as always is that your main photograph must be square. After that the world is your oyster, or should I say flamingo?! To help you get started here are some ideas you might want to consider;
- ‘In the Pink’ – means perfect condition or in good health, so that could be human or not!
- ‘Tickled Pink‘ – means delighted, so I’m thinking happy, fun and of course delighted. That could be you or the subject of your photograph.
- Pink – you can of course simply share anything that is coloured pink
- There is an extra challenge for those of you up for it – can you manage to combine two of these, or maybe even all three?
Squares is a daily challenge, so your photographs can be from the archives or brand new. Don’t forget though to keep your photo square, and to pingback with #InthePink.
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.
The photo challenge from Terri: Objects Over One Hundred Years Old
I wondered what I would like to have in this post. I randomly clicked on my holiday folder and came up with the village of Luss on the western side of Loch Lomond. The sign as we entered the village said “the prettiest town in Scotland” Just a couple of photos as it was raining the day we were there.
The village has some of the loveliest cottages
I think the owner of this cottage likes flowers
Isn’t this stone wall amazing
