Picture This #411 ~ Four Colours

First of all thanks for feature my photo as the banner picture and thanks for hosting Anders.

Red: On one of my walks last week I managed to get to the second bridge from where I live. It was built about 10-20 years ago to enable the students to reach our new secondary school from the opposite bank of the River Aar.

Blue: Night in Feldbrunnen, a view from the back garden with the scaffolding in front of the building.There might have been a moon, but even that has disappeared since we are surrounded by metal.

White: Sleeping swans on the River Aar.

Picture This #410 ~ Reminders Of A Bygone Age

Wonderful banner photo Mitch and thanks for hosting.

I am not sure this one has been standing on the path to the castle, but certainly not the latest model of a water hydrant.

The things you find in a garden of a restaurant and this is in our little village of Feldbrunnen. Perhaps someone wanted to call Dr. Who?

I wonder how many fields this one ploughed, before it was sent into retirement.

And even the Swiss joined in a little bit in the first world war. On the left my husbands's grandfather Fritz with his three brothers. They didn't have modern weapons. Mr. Swiss tells me they are sabres. Photo not taken by me, but a memory of the bygone age from a Swiss village, Niederwil about 5-10 minutes drive from where we live.

I am so in love with the horse in the banner picture. Did you photograph it in the American West, Mitch? Wonderful theme, I think some of my pictures are repeats but they fit.

Picture This #410 ~ Reminders Of A Bygone Age

Greetings everyone, this is Mitch. I'll be hosting this week. I've decided to go with a 'nostalgia' theme this week. I want you to post photos that are a 'reminder of a bygone age'. By that I  don't mean ancient history such as castles, I mean objects or scenes that are a reminder of the last century, preferably between 1920 and 1970, things that maybe remind us of our own early years. 

1) A reminder of the golden age of rail travel, when steam trains were king. 
Going Loco

2) In the days before mobile phones, if you were a member of the AA (Automobile Association), you could call for help from one of their dedicated phone boxes.
AA Box

3) In the 'good old days', fruit and veg was moved around in hand-carts such as this.

4) The iconic British post-box. This is an early version, probably from the 1940's.

Picture This #409 ~ Strange

Many thanks to Pat for hosting this week. A great theme, with lots of possibilities to see odd and strange things!! I have lots of photos of strange things, so it took me a while to choose which ones to use. 

1) I have no idea what this strange 'fruit' is. I saw it on a tree at Upton Castle Gardens, Pembrokeshire, Wales.
Dangler 2

2) I saw this strange contraption at the edge of a field in the countryside near where I live. I would love to know what it was used for!!

3) This sculpture of a horse made entirely of driftwood looked rather strange to me at first, but the more I looked at it, the more I liked it!!

4) The underside of a fungus. Always kind of strange-looking!!

PT CDIX ~ Strange

Beautiful banner by Pat and intriguing theme.

Three pieces of art. Two from my visit to the Louisiana Art Museum, Helsingör, Denmark and the third one from a visit to the city of Ängelholm.
