Half a Millionaire.....

.......okay it's only Turkish Lira.

From a holiday to Northern Cyprus (Famagusta) and Istanbul, Turkey with a work colleague from the northern Cyprus area back in 1997. This shows my English to Turkish Dictionary, a 500,000 Turkish Lira note and 60 Lira in coins.

A little reminder of the holiday

I've had this little glass dog for as long as I can remember - I'm not going to try to work out how long!

Hello all (only one bottle of wine shared between three of us so I feel able to crack on)

A wonderful selection of memories and images, thank you. I love the stories that go with the pictures, and of course the images themselves.

Mammarazzi - love the detail in your monkey and it took me down memory lane as I went to what was then Ceylon slightly over half a century ago.
Dave - love the sentiment and hope you still have some brownie points in the bank.
Phil, very poignant background story, love the crispness and colour.
Malc - it's been a while since I wore any of those accessories but you have presented them beautifully.
Chris - I bought my wife a Stanley Gibbons catalogue last Christmas (I'm not as sentimental as Dave, obviously) as she has a collection of stamps up in the loft that we keep meaning to do something with. Nice detail and also memories for me as they are places I've been to.
Linda - love the colours, great shot. Reminds me of my honeymoon but we just got the Gaudi place mats rather than the lizard.
Eddie - a Turkish delight - nice mix and a great depth of field from the dictionary cover down to the note. Must have been nice to have been a nearly millionaire.
And finally - Alison's little dog. I have a swan or maybe a duck, it's hard to tell. I love the lighting and colours and of course the perfect focus on the eye.
I have really enjoyed looking at all of these and as always there are many that deserve to win, but choose I must so this week I am swayed by the cheeky little dog. Over to you Alison, which I'm sure you'll be delighted about Smile

Thanks Andrew. When I went on the holiday I had several of those notes and now can't honestly say how many Lira I went with but it was several Million. Transfer it to BGP though and it doesn't sound exciting. Grin

Many thanks for this weeks fun Andrew and well done to IL (Alison)!! Smile

Good morning everyone! I'm more or less awake and waiting to see what the weather is going to do today - maybe get nice enough to go for a walk - who knows.......

Thanks Andrew for the honour - I've not a clue what new challenge to set but shall endeavour to come up with something as soon as possible!
