The Weekly Photo Challenge ‘Inside’, had me remembering places I and my family had been delighted to be inside on our travels.
In 1995, our teenage son, who was at that time an avid Knight Rider fan, was thrilled to be able to actually sit inside the famous K.I.T.T. car, when we visited Universal Studios in L.A..
I’d read about the ‘Gunfight at the O.K. Corral’, but never dreamed that one day I would go for lunch inside the bar of ‘Big Nose Kate’s Saloon’,
where the night before the famous gunfight, the participants had been carousing.
I was also thrilled to be able to go inside the infamous ‘Birdcage Theatre’, which in the late 19th century gained the reputation of being, “the wildest, wickedest night post between Basin Street and the Barbary Coast.”
There are 120 bullet holes evident throughout the building, but I didn’t however expect that when I stood at the bar, the Sheriff/barman would pull out his gun and point it it right at me.
It had always been a dream of mine to see the pyramids of Egypt, and in 1992 that dream was realised, when I got to actually go inside the tombs of the ancient Pharaohs.
Elvis was my favourite Rock ‘n’ Roll star of all time, so in 1997, I was thrilled to find myself inside his home at Graceland, and to be able to wander through the Hall of Fame.
The Forbidden City in Beijing had always sounded so mystical to me, and in 1999, I was privileged to visit this palatial complex which contains 9,999 rooms. Here is a photo taken inside ‘The Hall of Preserving Harmony’.
Well, I think that’s enough ‘inside’ memories for this challenge. Hope you’re all having a great weekend.
