It being Christmas and all, Cee has opted to extend her DOORS AND WINDOWS CHALLENGE for another week. Please check out more doors and windows by clicking her link underlined above.
Here are my photos:

This week Cee has encouraged us to HAVE FUN DISPLAYING FOTOS OF MANMADE THINGS.
Just click on the underlined link above to see what other photographers have brought to Cee’s place for display.
Here is my sampling…
This sign found in “Museum square” in Amsterdam was one of several signs built by Metaalplan for the city’s Amsterdam China Week festivities. The other signs came down after the celebration but the city opted to keep this sign up on the Square and it has become a photographic hotspot.
This fountain in the Back bay of Boston is one of several recently built as part of Boston’s new “Greenway”. Excuse the finger please!
This building is in my hometown of Winchendon MA and was built by Ephraim Murdock & Co in the early 1900’s as the high school for our town. It is where both of my parents and most of my aunts and uncles graduated from. Today it is the Murdock Senior Center and is affectionately called “Old Murdock”.
The sky behind it of course was made by Jesus, the son of man and so I guess it also qualifies as manmade 😉
It’s time to transport yourself over to Cee’s blog to see how her B&W contributors have displayed public transport. But before you get on the bus by clicking the underlined link take a peek at my photos.
The Zaanhopper is a little touring boat that takes passengers from Womerveer to Zaandam down the Zaan river.
The canals of North Holland are filled with touring boats. I caught sight of this one in the city of Haarlem.
One way to get around the city of Dublin is to rent a hansom. These ones stood just outside of the Guiness factory waiting for fares
And of course no public transport system would be complete in any land of lakes and rivers without the bridge. This is the Peace bridge in Derry
From the most ancient to the most modern. This is how I bridged the distance between me and Europe.
I am finally getting back to blogging on a regular schedule and while I am still a little behind at least I am arranging to blog daily again. That has been a challenge for months and now I think I have figured out how to make it happen. 🙂
Anyway this week’s travel theme is ANGLES. Hop on over to Ailsa’s place when you’re done here and check out some of the other angles bloggers have taken from around the world.
Here are mine:

Ailsa has asked us to get into the great OUTDOORS with our photos this week and since, as she has noted today is “Take a Walk In the Park Day.” I thought I would show you some of my walks in the parks.

This week Cee has challenged us to find her some: FARM ANIMALS
So I went down to MacLillie’s farm and found these…
Baa! Baa! Black sheep have you any wool?
This is Verle, the horse from one of my newest flash fiction pieces.
Every farm has a cat
And a dog
Oops! I mean kids.
Find out what other people have on their farms at…
This week Cee has challenged us to have fun with: BIKES AND MOTORCYCLES
I don’t own a bike or a motorcycle but I have a few pics of them
After all my sister lives in the Netherlands and you cannot miss the bikes there!
You can find other bikes at
Ailsa has challenged us to find :DOORWAYS in our travels. Check out the full scope of doors at her blog
Here are my thoughts on doorways:
“There are so many doors to open. I am impatient to begin.”
Doorways to the Old Center Church Winchendon MA
The doorway to Cabras Castle
“A very little key will open a very heavy door.”
― Charles Dickens, Hunted Down
“But then life is never neat, it is made up of doors and trapdoors. You move down baroque corridors, and even when you think you know which door to open, you still need to have the courage to choose.”
― J. M. Ledgard, Submergence
