The Sydney Harbour Bridge is iconic. It’s possible to take a guided tour of the superstructure, as these hardy souls have. No thank you: sea level is just fine with me.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge for this week gives me the opportunity to post another image taken in the Chapel of St Blaise in Pompadour. This follows on from this week’s Monday Window Challenge.
As a reminder, for the next few weeks Cee is asking us to pick up on an element of a photo she herself has posted. As the relevant image contains a mural, here is the dramatic painting behind the altar in St Blaise’s. The whole of the interior – walls and ceiling, totalling some 300 square metres – is covered in similar images with the same colour scheme. It’s not the Sistine Chapel, but it is certainly quite spectacular in its own way.

The headquarters of the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority (ADIA) on The Corniche is a landmark in Abu Dhabi.
It’s also where I toiled (figuratively speaking) for the last ten years of my working life, the final part of which was spent in an office on the inner side of the left hand tower, somewhere near the bottom of this image. It was on the 23rd floor, so from ground level you’d certainly have to look upwards.

A few years ago, the medieval ‘halle’ (marketplace) in the nearby village of Mortemart was carefully restored, allowing visitors to appreciate the technical complexity of its beamed roof.

Something involving the letter K is Cee’s Fun Foto prompt for this week, so here is a very large kite that was flying at the annual ‘Estevol’ airshow last summer.
