Nancy’s photo challenge this week is “Reflective surfaces“.

We loved this reflective covered area in Marseilles. It was a great public space to watch the street performers.

CFFC: Locks, keys, knobs and handles

Much as I love doors and gates and their associated locks, keys, knobs and handles, I thought I’d post something different for Cee’s challenge this week.

Mum and I loved the “knobs” on the topiary at the Palace of Versailles when we visited on our holiday.

Miroir d’eau – Travel Theme: Square

The Miroir d’eau (water mirror) in Bordeaux covers 3,450 square metres.

On a hot day it’s a cooling spot in the city centre for children of all ages. And we certainly appreciated it on our holiday in 2013.


Do you have a “square” picture to share?

DP WPC: A Symbol of Thanks

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Symbol.”

The kangaroos above the entrance of the town hall in Villers Bretonneux symbolise the gratitude of the town’s people to the Australians who liberated them in World War I.

As seen on the War and Champagne leg of our 2009 holiday.
