Weekly Photo Challenge: Up

The WordPress Photo Challenge ‘Up’ is a great opportunity to share some of myΒ  pics taken whilst looking skywards.

These were taken at our local annual airshow, over the past couple of years. Hubby took them, and I think he did really well. I’m sure I would overbalance if I had to try to take photos of planes flying overhead. πŸ™‚





You had a view down the steps of the Balinese temple in my last post, and this time you can look up at it.


Here’s Mount Rushmore from a different angle, showing only George Washington’s profile.


Another profile now of the Lakota warrior Chief Crazy Horse, in South Dakota. This colossal monument has been sixty-four years in the making, and as you can see, is still nowhere near to completion.


At the southernmost end of Las Ramblas in Barcelona, is the memorial honouring the great explorer Christopher Columbus, depicted pointing out to sea.


The dome of Saint Peter’s Basilica, designed by Michelangelo, is the most prominent buildingΒ  in the Vatican City. It’s as beautiful from the inside,


as from the outside.


Of course, I can’t do an up post, without including a photo of my favourite landmark, which is just a few yards up the beach. This is something I would really miss, if we move away from here.


I hope you’ve enjoyed my pics for this challenge. To see what other bloggers have come ‘up’ with, just click here.

  1. Ah, now we get to see the up view of the Balinese temple! Nice! And I love your profile pics of George Washington and Chief Crazy Horse. Great UPs for the challenge, Sylvia!

  2. Interestingly, I forgot the theme, so I got confused after the last airplane pic. πŸ™‚ …. sadly true, but I “looked up” to get the reminder … and then chuckled.

  5. Funny how we do that…. every place seems to have the pros and cons. Things we’d miss if/when we move. I’ve moved more times than I care to remember and have finally come to the conclusion that there just isn’t one perfect place….
    Nice UP pics. Always such great choices for each theme.

  6. Great gallery and choice for the challenge. My favorite is the lighthouse of course; I have a fetish for lighthouses. I have joined the challenge too now. Always enjoy landing here.
