Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge : Public Transportation

Amsterdam Cruises

Cruising the canals of Amsterdam

Amsterdam is a city with a lot of canals, a bit like Venice.  In fact there are over 100 kilometers of canals in Amsterdam.   If you want a relaxing trip around the city to visit the major sights, take the weight off your feet, sit back and admire the canalside houses and gardens from the comfort of a pretty cruising boat.

A Winter’s Tale

I took this photo last weekend while hiking in County Cork.   It’s a very typical outlook at this time of the year, when the fog and mist come down, and gives a winter ambience to the countryside.

Norm’s Thursday Doors : January 12 2017

Mainz Cathedral

Mainz Cathedral

These are the very impressive doors of the Romanesque Cathedral in Mainz, Germany.    This building is over 1000 years old, and was built around the year 990, in the 10th century.   It’s hard to cast my mind back that far, and hard to believe that this building is still standing and being used as a Cathedral, as originally intended.    The doors are very tall, made of bronze, and date back to the 11th century.

Mainz Cathedral

Here are some views of the outside of the Cathedral, there was some repair work and scaffolding going on when we visited, but it is a very large and interesting building, as you can see.

Tuesdays of Texture : Week 2 of 2017

Mainz memorial

Mainz, Germany

This week again I have a little something from our trip to Mainz in Germany – the sculptors were very busy with this one that we came across in one of the main squares, while we kept warm with some Gluhwien  This sculpture is called the carnival sculpture, or The Tower of Fools

Another interesting sculpture we came across is this modern art piece in the Town Square, which my grandchildren enjoyed playing around.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
