FRIDAY'S HUNT and WEEKEND REFECTIONS

Time to see what is on offer for Friday’s Hunt and Weekend Reflections this week. The letter this week is C, Building and Something I wear.  All the letters for C were from the Artis Royal Zoo in Amsterdam.  There is a COOT on her nest, then 2 COOT CHICKS among the Flamingos with REFLECTIONSand a CORMORANT.  
You  will see  Bald Ibis COPULATING on the video.  










This waterproof COAT is SOMETHING I WEAR when it is raining and I am photographing, which it was that day.


Now I have taken many images of the buildings in Amsterdam and above is a typical view of them.  However the brown BUILDING in this image below is now not straight and often as in the following shot they need to be shored up by wooden scaffolding  due to them listing.   




The final shot is of a fabulous BUILDING, now being used as a restaurant in the Vondel Park in Amssterdam.

Many thanks for visiting and  I hope you enjoyed seeing the post.

Also, to those who leaves comments, I thank you.

SUNDAY THOUGHT

At that time Jesus’ parents also offered their sacrifice for purification—“either a pair of turtledoves or two young pigeons” was the legal requirement.


Luke 2:24

FRIDAY'S HUNT and WEEKEND REFLECTIONS

I am linking to Weekend Reflections and Friday’s Hunt. This week the letter is B, Enbalanced and Door.  Well with my site being called BIRDING For Pleasure, B has to be for BIRD and this Heron has a great REFLECTION in the pond at Ward Park, in my home town of BANGOR




Now we are hopping over to Amsterdam again to see the UNBLANCED BEER in the BEER Glasses.  Photographed at night.  


 I also think this shot works for UNBALANCED as these two BOYS in the foreground have BARE BACKS but the guy standing is clothed! 
Photographed in Vondel Park Amsterdam 


Now we are BACK in BANGOR to the Pickie Area and you can choose any coloured toilet DOOR to use and below a choice of DOOR colour to get changed in for smimming.
