Theme Day: Metal

The first of the month so it's Theme Day and this month's Theme is Metal. Here you see part of a gate frame to the Casino Gardens with the largest of the fountains behind it. Beyond the fountain is the Casino of Monte Carlo - an iconic view of Monaco.

It's hot and humid in Monaco at the moment. The ozone level is not far off critical - people with breathing problems are told to stay indoors and the speed limit has been reduced on all motorways in the Alpes-Maritimes.

There are 184 City Daily Photo bloggers from all around the world taking part in today's Theme. Do visit some of them and and see what 'metal' they have found in their city to delight you. Click here to view thumbnails for all participants.

This is quite a contrast to today's Menton photo - so clean and pristine! Take care of those lungs. I hope the dogs are resting too.

What a lovely scene - I love fountains anyway and the fence is right on the nose for theme day too.

The fountain makes a good background for this.

Jilly ,
I just knew you would have something to delight the eye today. I feel cooler just looking at it. The BW is a very interesting idea. Most of us would have chosen color for water, but this is just great in BW!

Quite beautiful with the fountain in the background. MB

Very elegant. And so different from the rusted out car. Nicely done!

Happy Theme Day!

The iron work that you have is art. And some of the gates and fences in Coral Gables can be art - and good art. But when there is too much it appears to be there because of fear.

the black and white treatment is very effective in this photo.

What a wonderful shot. You'd never guess by looking at it that the air quality is poor. Everything looks crisp and gorgeous in your photo.

Thanks for visiting my blog today and leaving such a nice comment.

Cheers,

Laurie

The harsh metal against the sof water is wonderful and could only be a b&w image. Excellent.

You have captured a secret view of Monaco within one of the most popular ones. Beautiful.

Lovely photo Jilly. The water looks fabulous but unattainable. I'm feeling thirsty.
