This week Carmi's Thematic Challenge is LETTERS.
This photograph was taken in Bruges when we visited there last year on our cruise. It fascinated me - I couldn't work out what the logo was. What are the letters, why the crown, or is it just the logo of Bruges City Council?
Whatever it is, it reminds me of the lovely day we had in that beautiful city - and how hot and hard the pavements were!
The second one is just a very ordinary entry to a coal hole in my own town. Presumably the self-locking device is so that no-one else could steal the coal after it was poured down the hole to the cellar beneath. Or did some overworked little Tweeny have to clear up and lock the iron cover again?
Being not too steady on my feet, I have to look where I am going when I walk. Its amazing what I see that others might miss!
