My (Grandfather’s) Watch

This is a photograph of the back of my watch. Except that it isn’t really my watch. It’s the one that was presented to my grandfather on the occasion of his retirement in 1961 – at the age of 74. Those are his initials: TC.

Rather like me, it’s a bit temperamental now, and sometimes stops for no obvious reason (also rather like me). But I’m proud to wear it.

Sweeping

The BurJuman Centre is one of the oldest shopping malls in Dubai, and features a couple of grand sweeping staircases, with elements of Art Deco. This is a view taken from the ground floor, looking up to the balcony and ceiling above. The image is almost abstract and works quite well in black & white, I think.

Quite possibly the world’s most expensive form of public transport(ation), gondolas pass beneath the Bridge of Sighs in Venice.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Connected

What could be more appropriate for this week’s theme of ‘Connected’ than a wedding?

I’m very happy to say that I took this photograph last Saturday at my son’s wedding. Stealing the show between the bride and groom is their much-loved dog.
