Footbridge over railway, Lower Hutt

 

 

If you’re gonna let me down, let me down gently
Don’t pretend that you don’t want me
Our love ain’t water under the bridge
If you’re gonna let me down, let me down gently
Don’t pretend that you don’t want me
Our love ain’t water under the bridge
Say that our love ain’t water under the bridge

Water Under the Bridge

https://dailypost.wordpress.com/photo-challenges/heritage/

This week, share a photo that channels a living tradition, whether it’s your own or someone else’s.

HERITAGE

I do not know if it was my father who started the photo scrapbook

or if my grandmother/father had started it.

After both, my parents had passed my

younger sister gave me the following scrapbook

as an heirloom.

Reflecting: The Daily post Photo Challenge


https://dailypost.wordpress.com/photo-challenges/reflecting/

Whether it’s water or some other reflective surface, what have you seen recently that has changed your perspective on the view?

A while ago I took photos of a rehabilitation hospital which has been closed because of many obstacles that made the running of it impossible.

I could not go inside and had to take photos through the dirty windows.

My thoughts ran away with me when I saw the empty rooms;

empty rooms used twenty-five years ago for helping addicted people.

Reflections from me on the outside windows.

Danger: The Daily Post Photo Challenge


DANGER

There are dangers in  New Zealand we can’t predict.

Nature works on its own.

Sea, wind, rain, storms, earthquakes, cyclones…

Today I went shopping in one of our supermarkets.

The entrance looked like this!

This looks dangerous!

Here the walls of the shop are strengthened to protect it against strong earthquakes.

Look out! This week’s challenge is about the unexpected thrill of danger: says Michelle W

Dense: The Daily Post: Photo Challenge


This week, share your take on “dense” — you could focus on a natural landscape like I did, or take the theme in a different direction, from a sweaty crowd at a rock concert or a busy avenue during rush hour to a fresh loaf of bread, waiting for someone to take the first bite.

Says Ben Huberman at-

Last weekend I had the opportunity to fly from Wellington, NZ North Island to Nelson NZ, South Island. It was very cloudy when we left Wellington.

DENSE clouds.
