A silos complex near Champagne, Illinois.
After a week in the United States we went up to Champagne, Illinois. I wanted to see the area I was born and my family had business in that city so off we went. Along the way we were greeted by miles and miles of farm-land. The above silos complex was only one of several that I saw – and was able to snap from a moving car!

I often found myself in a car riding through the vast country-side of “Little Egypt”, a vast area between two rivers in Southern Illinois. If you like I feel a little perplexed by the appellation thinking that the land between two rivers was Mesopotamia, so Little Babylon might be more appropriate, you would probably get the same reply from the people of the region as I did … a laconic: “Little Egypt” and that’s all she wrote.
I thought I’d pop these off for this week’s Photo Challenge hosted by Daily Prompts … dedicated to “Curves”. Just click the red link to find more photos dedicated to curves!
For this week’s DP Photo Challenge we’re looking for relics! I usually show you the beauties of Riva … we have so many. However there are also a few derelict buildings … and right in the center of town, like this building below where one of my favorite bakeries used to be:
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by! Bastet
The other day I went for a walk on the lake. At Riva del Garda, we don’t have only tourists, we also have, ducks, swans, coots, ravens, sparrows, swallows and lots of other birds which don’t come to mind right now, that have learned to live with the tourists like the “Rivani” have.
It was a nice suny day, so I decided to lay out in the sun…and who should come waddling by but two male ducks! So I slowly got my camera out and twisted around to take this group of photos:
This week DP Photo Challenge asked us to tell them what twist means to us…this is my first thought! And if you want to read the set of haiku I wrote to honor the pair go to Bastet and Sekhmet’s Library by clicking the link!
What does spring mean to me? Warm sun … perfume scented air and children in the parks. No more coats, at last, the sun is warm again…and of course the ducks and birds in general are all ready for the maiting game!
This week’s Daily Post Photo Challenge was asking…what’s spring to you….this is my first answer!
This week’s D.P. Photo Challenge is dedicated to letters….I took 4 shots of this beautishop … a new addition to Arco and very chic and elegant!
Is not what you wear
Or how you style your hair
It’s not about looks
It’s a special feeling,
That goes beyond your mirror.
It’s Monday…and on Monday, when I can I post black and white photos…today I’ll be doing so whilst posting for the Weekly Photo Challenge dedicated to thresholds!
Back to Arco’s Castle…into one of the main halls of the castle:
Looking at the threshold of the city of Arco:

Thresholds…as in going into a new world…or walking through a door:
