Square Tops #28: The Way to the Top

Stairway to Heaven

The Way to the Top, Genoa, Italy

Join Becky’s April Squares: SquareTops. There are only two rules: the photo must be square and it must relate to the theme of the month.

The theme for April Squares is ‘top‘, and Becky has listed five idioms to choose from;

  1. On Top of the World – summit, crown, peak (tiptop) or uppermost part of something.
  2. Under the Big Top – topping or covering (or if you are really lucky a circus!)
  3. Room at the Top – first or highest in position
  4. Cherry on Top – something made even more wonderful by becoming square
  5. Top and Tail – or maybe you’d prefer to play around with word combinations such as top dog, top stitch, top hat, top secret, top knot, top drawer or top dollar!

The main tag is #SquareTops but you may also want to add a second tag using the idiom your square is coming under.

Staircase, Iolani Palace, Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii

Koa wood staircase in ‘Iolani Palace, home of King David Kalākaua and his sister Queen Liliʻuokalani, the last reigning monarchs of the Kingdom of Hawaii.  (Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii) Kalākaua was the first Hawaiian ruler to travel extensively and he admired the royal palaces he saw in Europe. He commissioned a new palace in the late 1870’s. Following the overthrow of the monarchy in 1893 and annexation by the United States, the palace became a government building and later the state capitol. Years of remodeling and neglect led to deterioration of the former royal residence. The palace has been loving restored over many years by the Friends of the ‘Iolani Palace and is open to the public. It is worth a visit if you are in Honolulu.
