I would be one of those tourists, and I'm laughing at your lion. I also took a photo of an opening yellow rose today, but mine was in the rain. We'll see how it comes out. Yours is beautiful.

What a wonderful set of images VP. The lion is just great!

An eclectic and fun series...wish I'd been on that boat of tourists! And yes, that lion really does have a stupid look on his face.

The window is gorgeous, as is the rose. I like yellow. Makes me feel mellow!

What a pretty and interesting combination of the 3 ancient elements.

What a good post. That window and that rose are so beautiful. That boat looks a bit crowded to me. Do you think it's safe?

The tourists look like they are in "sardine class."
The lion really does look like something from a cartoon or Disney movie.

Interesting contrasts. The official, crammed tour and the little details that make up a living city.

This was only one of my Sunday walks, but I was tired of “Something Walk” titles...

You just made me laugh outright with the lion. It does look very strange! I love the tourist shot! The Livornese Bateau-Mouche is very sweet.

Gunn said...

Nice shots! I would have gone on a boat trip too. ;-)

The lion looks a bit surprised - maybe it's the view of so many people in such a tiny boat:)
I love this elegant window with yellow roses.
Balcony is sweet!

Can you imagine trying to keep that window clean?

Halcyon said...

I am laughing at your comment on the lion. I feel a bit sorry for him now.

I like the boat filled with people. It reminds me of one of those rides at Disney or something. I think they are all waiting for something spectacular.

Here there and everywhere. Good idea. That window is great, almost framed by yellow roses. Too many people in that boat for me to be there but I suppose they are having fun. I wonder what surprised the silly Lion. MB

JM said...

LOL! I'm laughing at the comment of the very funny lion!
Why do you call the tourists brave? Because it's cold? (They are wearing jackets...)
By the way, we're having 32ºC now! But I've heard this is going to change... AGAIN!!!
