Concept

It looks like a motorbike, it has the feel of a motorbike. But it still is only a concept and will never hit the roads full power.

Travel theme: Circles

Don’t be square, Ailsa says, join in the circles theme and spread the love a-round.

And of course we follow our charming challenger! 😉

The circles in the first photo are motorbike wheels, for those who hadn’t recognized them yet. And they should indeed be circular, or the ride would get bumpy. 😉

Have you ever seen such a peculiar field of yellow ‘flowers’? They only bloom once every ten years, so I was very fortunate to shoot the second photo.

Last but not least was the intriguing sight of my empty ice tea glass. It was trying to suck me in, so I blocked it with my camera. I didn’t take any repercussions though, ’cause the tea probably saved my life and sanity in the heat of Italy.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Thankful

The WordPress Photo challenge of this week is very similar to the Free Write Friday post I published earlier: Gratitude, where you can read about my reasons to be grateful and thankful.

For this photo challenge I have chosen: PEACE. I am thankful for each country, each region and village, even each house, where peace has won over war. Let’s be thankful for that, and strive for more, much more peace.

Why this peace sign was upside down, is a mystery to me. But you know what? This way it resembles the \/ sign even better.

Happy Thanksgiving weekend!

Architecture

My entry this week is a photo of the beautiful ‘Huize Damiaan’, a former monastery in the south of Limburg, the Netherlands. In this region my roots are still firmly grounded, though I live 100 miles to the north-west. Yeah, long roots, right? 😉

The foundations of ‘Huize Damiaan’ were built on the grounds of a little farm. In 1896 the construction work of the monastery started, only to finish in 1927. Up until 1991 it has been used for religious purposes, but in that year it was sold into private hands. Since then the building has been exploited in a commercial way to preserve the monastery for the generations to come – only in that way the maintenance costs can be covered.
