Weekly Photo Challenge: Grand

Where I come from in Lancashire, we used the term ‘grand’ a lot. There, it generally means ‘good’. However, I think for this challenge I need to think on a much bigger and more impressive scale.

Wales Millennium Centre

We have a lot of grand buildings here in Cardiff, including the Wales Millennium Centre.


The Parker Dam is architecture on a grand scale.


Possibly the biggest show of grandeur I have ever seen, though, is the Christina O, a 99.06 metre long ex-frigate that Aristotle Onassis converted into a luxury yacht and named after his daughter. If you’re interested, you can hire the yacht from 455,000 euros a week, crew not included.
