GGG-Challenge

A-Z Archive
Every Tuesday, step by step, I’m walking with my readers from A to Z, last week we had the “FFF”-challenge, so this week we’ll take “G” – I’m sure you’ll also find a a photo, a story or a music title tagged with “G”! Feel free to add in the comments below the link to your personal interpretation of the letter “G”!!! Myself I’ll visualize the “Golden Gate Bridge”:

GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE

  5. Hi there Frizz. Golden Gate Bridge is also one of our favourite photography subjects. San Francisco is a lovely city. My G contribution this week consists of pictures taken by my 11 year old daughter of our Gardens by the Bay here in Singapore. Here’s the link:

    • thank you, Doris, for your two kinds of glasses – of course I use daily both too – I like Greek sweet wine! Need my glasses, to proof, if a wasp is bathing (when we are sitting in our garden).

  6. Fantastic video choices, Frizz! Hard to know which I like better. I’ve seen Allan Smorra’s before and it astounded me then, as it does today. The nerve of those guys! 🙂
    And speaking of nerve, who’s got more than Little Richard? And talent and character in abundance. I was jigging round the room! Oh, the memories 🙂

  8. When you said G and golden gate I was thinking to gold and one of my pictures in NY : http://icezine.wordpress.com/2012/05/24/week-21-gold/
    and because you spoke of Little Richard I was thinking about that amazing concert in BBKIng grill in NYC :

    • Hi Francine,
      you made me smile with your U-turn of thinking:
      “… However, there is an “institutional” side to green, associated with illness and government-issued green cards, that conjures up negative emotions, as do the “slimy” or “bilious” greens…”

  16. Richard is the best. I didn’t even get to the Jerryb Lee one, but I’m sure that’s a great clip too. But Richard with Muhamed Ali. Wow. When I saw the G I looked through my posts and found this one G – for Woody Guthrie and Goin’ Down the Road Feelin’ Bad.

  21. With all due respect to “G,” the San Francisco Bay area is fortunate to be able to boast of two fabulous bridges. The other is the Bay Bridge which now has an unusual light show to offer every night through March 2015. Well, that might be “G” as well, if you’re inclined to call it “good,” as I am. This public works project is supported by the wealth of the tech industry in this area …

    Bravo on another great post, Frizz.

    I saw a documentary about the building of the Brooklyn Bridge. It’s astonishing what these construction men do. It takes a tremendous amount of courage.
