Jake’s Sunday Post: Perspective

This week, Jake has asked us for photos showing ‘Perspective’, and has created some amazing graphics to illustrate what he means.

Here are my pics, which I hope meet the requirements. This first one was taken at Sea World in San Diego.


Here is my eldest grandson pretending that he is a racing driver in this AC Cobra Replica at Monte Casino in Johannesburg.


I’m somewhat dwarfed here, by this huge Valentines flower arrangement.


I love the perspective of this pic taken on board our boat in Punta Cana.


Lastly, here’s one some of you may have seen before,  but I think it definitely fits the challenge. Donald Trump’s penthouse is on the 68th floor of this amazing skyscraper on 5th Avenue NYC.

Cee’s FFC: Fire

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week, is to “show off a few photos of the Chinese element of fire.”

The only photo I have of real fire, is this one which provided a very welcome bit of warmth when we went for dinner one evening in England to ‘The Barn at Alfold’. The Barn was built in 1590, and its wooden beams are all original, dating back to the days of the Spanish Armada. I wonder if the fireplace is the same age. Incredible to think of how many people must have basked in its warmth, including Ernest Hemingway, who frequented this establishment in the 1940′s, during the Second World War.


We’re all familiar with the sight of candles on a Birthday cake. Elyse managed to blow them all out at once.


At night, houses can look as though they are on fire, like these we saw in Savannah in December.


A true gold and orange sunset like this one over the Venice Lagoon, really makes the sky look all aflame, and that’s when I think the sun looks really hotter than hot, almost like molten lava.

Thank you so much. 🙂
This iconic bronze and black beauty, the tallest residential building in NYC, soars 863 feet into Manhattan’s skyline. It was built in 2001 at a cost of between $3-400 million. Wouldn’t you just love to have a peek inside one of those super luxury apartments, or even Donald Trumps penthouse way up on the 68th floor with its gold and diamond covered door?
