Thursday Doors : Visiting Germany

2015-09-25 12.05.50

The metal and glass doors belong to St Bartholemew’s Cathedral in Frankfurt, also known as the Frankfurter Dom, and the original church on this site was constructed many years ago, in the 14th and 15th centuries.

Russian Orthodox Church

These very ornate doors are from the Russian Orthodox Church in Weisbaden, also in Germany.    The church itself is also very highly decorated, with golden turrets on top, which sparkle in the sunlight.

To check out more interesting doors, head on over to Norm’s place.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge : Pick a Topic

This week Cee has given us a choice of subject, and asks us to pick a topic from her photo.    I recently visited one of the higher buildings in the City of London, and the extra special attraction of this building, apart from the amazing views, is the SkyGarden, which is on floors 34 to 36  (luckily there are plenty high speed lifts to get to the top quickly!)  The garden has a restaurant, plenty places to sit and chat, and the covered gardens are full of exotic tropical plants to soothe the stressed mind.

Hope you enjoy the views of my lines and shapes!

Cee’s Which Way Challenge : Week 11

How far would you like to go?

How far would you like to go?

I was  in Zimbabwe at Christmas time, and on our way back from Lake Kariba, we came across this very informative sign…we could go to Mount Kilimanjaro (2772 km), or in the other direction, Port Louis in Mauritius (2772 km), or even to the Pyramids in Egypt!   Then again, we weren’t feeling too adventurous that day, so Clouds End Hotel (And Cold Beer) at 163 meters was just about right!!
