365 Days of Man's Mark on the World - August 2014

At the beginning of 2013 I began a 365 Project called 365 Days In Nature.
This year I'm continuing that one and starting a new one called 365 Days of Man's Mark on the World.
My goal is to take a photo of something man made every day for the whole year.
I've started a Facebook group to share our photos.
If you want to join us, you can find us here... 365 Days of Man's Mark on the World

Day 213 - 1st August - Churches & Abbeys - My final photo for the theme is the biggest church in the world (I think), St Peter's Basilica in Rome.

Day 215 - 3rd August - Monuments/Memorials/Headstones - "Memorial to the miners who died in accidents on Gympie goldfields 1868 - 1952". This memorial is at the top of a park just across the street from our house.

Day 219 - 7th August - Monuments/Memorials/Headstones - More headstones from the cemetery.

Day 220 - 8th August - Monuments/Memorials/Headstones - The final photo for this wonderful theme...this rotunda is in our Memorial Park, the plaque reads:




Day 221 - 9th August - Clocks - We have two clock towers in our town, and I can see them both from our house. This is the most impressive one, at the Court House.

Day 222 - 10th August - Clocks - Today is the other clock tower in town. This one is closer to our house and bells chime the hour of the day. It is lit up for Christmas here.

Day 223 - 11th August - Clocks - The same clock tower as yesterday from a different perspective.

Day 224 - 12th August - Clocks - My favourite clock on the lounge room wall tells me it's time to get ready for school!

Day 225 - 13th August - Clocks - We haven't set the alarm for years and we have internal alarms. Before kids I used to hit the snooze button up to 8 times!! No snoozing now!

Day 226 - 14th August - Clocks - The most wonderful clock I've ever seen, the glockenspiel in Munich. Every day at 11 a.m. it chimes and re-enacts two stories from the 16th century. It consists of 43 bells and 32 life-sized figures.

Day 227 - 15th August - Clocks - My brand new kitchen clock! I bought it yesterday because our old one died and I NEED a clock in the kitchen. Isn't it pretty?

Day 228 - 16th August - Stairs - Stone stairs on the way to the top of Mt Coolum.

Day 229 - 17th August - Stairs - Stairs in my mother-in-law's back garden.

Day 230 - 18th August - Stairs - The kids at the top of the stairs but where's the plane?

Day 231 - 19th August - Stairs - Stairs in the forest at Buderim.

Day 232 - 20th August - Stairs - The stairs that almost killed me...we'd already walked about 5km from the train station in Lyon, when we looked around the corner to see this...well let's just say my mood wasn't pretty!

Day 233 - 21st August - Stairs - I took this photo in Rome on Palatine Hill with my old film camera, before photography became a major hobby. I've always loved it.

Day 234 - 22nd August - Stairs - Some of the most famous stairs in the world, The Spanish Steps in Rome. Shame it's not one of the best photos in the world!

Day 235 - 23rd August - Anything Old - One of the things our town is famous for is the Mary Valley Rattler, an old steam train. This is the old, but very glamorous dining car.

Day 236 - 24th August - Anything Old - I love how well looked after these old beauties can be.

Day 237 - 25th August - Anything Old - Old stuff at the gold mining museum.

Day 238 - 26th August - Anything Old - Old facades in our town.

Day 239 - 27th August - Anything Old - We drove past this on the way to a picnic and my husband knew he had to stop the car without me even asking.

Day 240 - 28th August - Anything Old - Lovely old things at the local museum.

Day 241 - 29th August - Anything Old - A beautiful old parfait glass (as my Mum calls them) with lyrebirds that belonged to my husband's grandmother.

Day 242 - 30th August - Pubs/Hotels/Bars - I've just been on my pub crawl around town, not stopping in, just stopping to snap them! Starting with the pub I used to love hanging out in when we first moved to town. We called it 'The Free' and sat on that lovely verandah on the top floor. Sadly it's no longer open.

Day 243 - 31st August - Pubs/Hotels/Bars - Another pub in town is The Australian, or as we all call it, The Aussie. It's recently had a face lift, but I think I liked the old colour scheme better. Which one do you like best?
