Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Tombstones or Cemeteries

Woodgrange Park Cemetery

First of all I will take you to Woodgrange cemetery where our family grave was. My grandfather was the last to be buried in the grave which he filled, being the 6th person in the grave. I have a photo of the grave, but black and white and not very good quality. Today the cemetery exists, but only with some old and neglected stones. Otherwise most of the graves, including ours, were removed with machines. Another part of the cemetery has been converted to a muslim cemetery. Somehow everything passes.


Ricardo

I stumbled upon this grave in the Montparnasse cemetery in Paris (yes, I am a grave tourist). Ricardo Menon was an young assistant to Niki de St. Phalle, an artist and she designed his grave.

Carlo_Abarth
Carlo Abarth was a car designer who is quite well known amongst the car fans. I found his grave in Vienna in the central cemetery. I did not know who he was, Mr. Swiss explained, but I found his grave something special.

I now have to come to a stop, I have too many graveyard photos.

Inside Hotel Mansour Dhabi

I once had the luck to visit Marrakesh in Morocco with my husband’s company on a public relations journey. We stayed at one of the best hotels, Mansour Dhabi, which was newly built and full of the charms of the arabian nights. This was one of the entrance halls.

Fun Photo Challenge: Fire Trucks, Fire Houses, Fire Hydrant

Fire in the old town of Solothurn

This was a live photo by me. I was on my way home from a dentist visit and found the main street was blocked off. An attic was on fire in one of our old buildings in the main street and I was there with my camera to take photos. The date on the photo is 2011, so it was 6 years ago.

Feldbrunnen to Langendorf 09.11 (2)

We drive past our local fire station when we visit the supermarket, and if you are lucky one of the engines will be parked outside the station. There are fulltime firemen in the big towns in Switzerland, but otherwise it is mainly volunteers that do the work.

Firefighter Exercise Feldbrunnen-Riedholz

In my younger and more active days I belonged to the village first aid group and once a year we would do an exercise with the village firemen. We then got a closer look at the fire trucks.

And as an extra, this old fire hydrant stands at the edge of a field in our village. I don’t know whether it is still working, but who knows.
