What a wonderful assortment of photos! The T-Rex is the strangest and the bird is the best!

VP I am still laughing with that picture of the stuff T Rex.

Randy said...

I think the T-Rex was hit by the car or scooter and then the bird pecked the remains until there was no heart beat left in the poor creature. Nice shots!

Funny to see the matching RED car and RED moped!

I don't know, but I have a feeling that the red car is going to have to manoeuver! Fun walk again, I like the shutter holder.

Poor dinosaur has seen better days, but such a sad end.
Strange striped window.
Your nice shutter holder is like a modern version of our old and rusting "Menschelach" that the Templers brought in.

Aaaaw.... poor T-Rex... or poor kid that lost him! Enjoyed the walk, VP, and many thanks for the link to the statue I posted. Did you use the image search to find that? Brilliant.

The“dead” stuffed T-Rex must have been loved by a dog. (^▽^;)

What a strange collection you have here! I like that holder, it's intersting. May be the red car was parked after the scooter because the owner has no intention to use the car soon :) or the scooter owner just squeezed in a place and will leave soon :)

Bravo, VP, these are all wonderful.

Kaori said...

Totally unexpected as you say! The last photo of the gull looks quite a shot! He looks a bit angry ;-)

Halcyon said...

That T-Rex is creepy! I was trying to figure out what that was from the thumbnails. I thought it was some sort of sealife that fell out onto the street. :S

I like the red car and scooter. Although I am surprised you didn't write us a little love story!

And the stripey reflections are also nice. Your walks are always enjoyable!

Lois said...

That T-Rex has definitely seen better days!

JM said...

Shocking image of the T-Rex, even knowing it's a stuffed one! :-) I like the holder.

I usually love going on you walk with you--and all the others---but today with the dead T-REX I am feeling very sad. The image is in my mind. What to do!!!!! MB

Jack said...

But just think how you would have felt if T. Rex was alive!

ρομπερτ said...

Images filled with the outcry for and of life. Impressive. Please have a good Wednesday.

Another great series. I laughed out loud at the dead T-rex since it wasn't real. So strange!

tapirgal said...

P.S. That has to be one of my favorite reflection photos ever.

Steffe said...

Some interesting (and unique), finds on this promenade.

Lynette said...

I really like your "walks"! Thanks for sharing what you see with us.

Poor ol' T-Rex!

Mr Seagull looks like a singer on stage.
