This photo challenge is alternately hosted each Friday by the bloggers:
Something to Ponder About  and The Snow Melts Somewhere

The prompt for this Friday is:

Illumination

Everyone is welcome to join in with the Friendly Friday Photography challenge.

For me, illumination means sunsets, sunrises, candlelight, or nights with the moon.

The city can be illuminating, especially when there is Fireworks

You can also see some photos of Tokyo illuminating at night here

Friendly Friday Photo Challenge – Alleys

Alley

This photo challenge is alternately hosted each Friday by the bloggers:
Something to Ponder About  and The Snow Melts Somewhere

The prompt for this Friday is:

Alleys

Everyone is welcome to join in with the Friendly Friday Photography challenge.

Here are some alleys in the lakes district of Italy.

Alleys are found not just in the old world. The ‘New’ world has its alleyways too.

Melbourne’s streets was created in a grid like pattern of both wide streets and narrow alleys, as the authorities couldn’t agree on the sort of town plan they initially wanted, for the city: whether to make it more European like, or with modern wider streets, so they hedged their bets and incorporated both.

In Sweden, we have some unique alleys to showcase to visitors.

Both on the West coast and in Stockholm.

I chuckle to think how Manja Mexi would caption this photo?

Monday Murals

Street Murals – Provocative, Clever, Creative but always interesting.


And another favourite mural here in Melbourne.

Street art makes the boring neighbourhood scene fun even if a little creepy.

Murals at a fish and chip shop and railway subway

I found Sami’s blog and her Monday Mural linky party via Suvi today – funny how I cyber travelled via Suvi in Finland to find another Australian blogger on the other side of my country.

Something to Ponder about

WPC Challenge – Transmogrify

Transmogrify    

It means, “to change in appearance or form, especially strangely or grotesquely; transform.” 

The challenge is to express this in photos.

A milk can with more than one life!

Zematt Cog Railway station

The strangest snowball/man I’ve seen – perhaps better suited to Halloween!

Graffiti art in Melbourne- really espousing the Transmogrification theme.

Something to ponder about this week

WPC = Treat

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Treat.”IMG_20150120_115233IMG_20150120_115250IMG_20150120_115256IMG_20150120_120521phone 13 jan melbournePhotos from a fabulous piece of Italy buried in the city of Melbourne – Brunetti. Opening at 4.30 am each day, the service is impeccable and the food extraordinarily delectable!

Just as well I don’t live in Melbourne, otherwise, my girth would be much expanded!!!

I can’t think of a better thing to ponder and perhaps salivate, about for this wordpress photography challenge.
