I was challenged on Facebook by long time friend Alison to publish 10 travel photographs – The wording was…

“If you can’t travel at least you can live on memories. I’ve posted one of my travel photos and posted it without any explanation, then I’ll nominate someone to take up this challenge. I was challenged by Sheena Batten 10 days, 10 travel photos, 10 nominees, no explanation.
Day 9 and today I nominate Martin Addison

So I will be doing that on Facebook although I won’t be nominating anyone because I never did like ‘chain letters’ and this is basically one of those 😦

But, while I take part, I will share the chosen images here too – between other posts and with some context. So, 10 days on facebook will probably spill over to 15 days here. Some shots will have been posted on my blog before but others won’t and the addition of background info will possibly give new life too. Here is the first image…

This shot was taken in Zurich and shows a view of the River Limmat. We passed through Zurich on our way to Rome for a holiday in 2011. We were supposed to just spend a night between changing trains but it became two nights when Epi realised she had forgotten her medication and had to visit the hospital and then a local chemist to resolve the issue. So, I got to enjoy more of Zurich than the train station!

Lots of things going on so I thought I’d better get my entry for Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge sorted out today!

Banana – ok that’s 3 letter A’s but there was a bunch of them πŸ˜‰ …

In the UK a small group of shops along a road is often called a Parade and sometimes the road itself contains that name too. This is one such example, Station Parade in Willesden Green…

Place names often come to the rescue when doing these letter challenges and I know Cee likes transport shots, so here’s a bus that has just terminated its journey at Archway…

I decided not to post an Arachnid πŸ˜‰

This week we’re going to visit the North Circular Road but to begin with, here’s some brown bears…

…placed beside a childrens play area in Highgate to encourage recycling.

The North Circular road or the A406, has lots of truck traffic every day. Here’s a westbound dry-box trailer…

Cones are a common feature of travel along the North Circular – here, they’re being put out to protect workers during a nighttime lane closure…

…and this sea of cones was set out in the pattern of the new layout at the junction with the A598 at Henlys Corner…

…work that was subsequently completed in 2012.
