2019 Friday photo challenge (Week 2) ‘Think big’

This week’s Friday Photo Challenge theme is ‘think big’ and nothing says big to me like the Vatican. We visited as a family in the summer of 2017 and it was truly huge. St Peter’s Basilica (above) was the largest church in the world until very recently, and this ceiling in the Vatican Museum (below) is just awe inspiring, totally covered in paintings in gilt frames. I have never seen anything like it.

If you would like to read more about our trip to the Vatican City, you can see my post here.

I’m linking with Alison in Andalucia for this year’s photo challenge.

2019 Friday photo challenge (week 1) Sunrise

This year I am taking part in Alison in Andalucia’s #52fridayphotos. Today’s challenge theme is ‘sunrise’.

That was a bit of a problem as I don’t have any sunrise photos. Living where we do on the Western side of Gibraltar we get to see some fabulous sunsets though…

This photo was taken while sitting on the platform at Manchester Oxford Road railway station waiting for an early train. That’s as close as I can get to sunrise! (I’m not really a morning person!)
