Here are my photos for this week’s ‘Near and Far’ WordPress Photo Challenge.
The first was taken from our colourful long-tail boat, as we were ferried around the ‘Khlongs’ in Bangkok.
This one was taken from the Moorish castle which stands proudly on the Rock of Gibraltar, overlooking the harbour. You can see the Spanish coast and the Port of Algeciras in the distance.
Here you can see the skyscrapers of Hong Kong island, which overlook Victoria harbour, with the Kowloon Peninsula and China in the far distance.
This photo was taken from a car park overlooking Florence on our very first tour of Italy. Clearly visible in the distance, is the Ponte Vecchio which spans the Arno river, and the Basilica del Santa Maria Fiore, more commonly known as the Duomo.
I couldn’t resist slipping in this last one, sent to us yesterday by our son, after we had been chatting on Skype. It was early morning in New York, and Jeff and little Max were the only ones downstairs. We had a lovely long conversation, and spent a lot of time just smiling at Max, who seemed fascinated by his grandparents sitting on the other side of the world. Isn’t it wonderful how Skype can cut down the distance between near and far?
