Cee’s Black and White Challenge-Chairs-Seats-Benches


This week’s Black and White

Chairs, Seats, Benches



I had this post prepared when the Black and White challenge stopped.

I will be away for a few weeks  and thought this would be a good

way to enter the first of the new season

Black and White Challenge.

A range of random seating photos this week.


The lonely seat.


The occupational Health and Safety People would have a field day the way this chair is being kept level.

I applied maximum shadow to this photo as it made the steps, or seats, stand out better.

seat_0524On Warrnambool’s foreshore there are plenty of places to sit.

seat_0558I have often wondered what it would be like to have a seat behind a horse.


Barbques and under cover seating  at Lake Pertobe.

seat_0655This family turned a small jetty into an ideal place to sit and feed the ducks.


seat_0684No holiday makers makes a picnic ground a tough place to find a feed.

seat_0527When you’re a seagull even a concrete pier is an ideal seat.




Floral Friday-14-2908


Floral Friday Challenge.


This morning we had another ‘pea soup’ fog in Geelong…

web_0867which, for a few hours converted some of our garden

into some delicate works of art.

web_0853While not quite ‘floral’ I think it is as pretty as

any flower in the garden and unlike flowers,

conditions need to be ‘just so’ to capture it.

A Word a Week Photography Challenge–Rust


My contribution for this week’s

 Word of the Week Challenge…



Thinking of a rusty post I remembered this photo of…

ferriswheel_0505a ferris wheel.  A bit rusty for me to ride on.

curves2_1801Rusty red bricks, rusting metal all over fifty years old.


A rusty roof in the middle of a city, and…


another rusty roof in rural Victoria.  Not an unusual sight.

soldiers_0114These three may have been clean steel at one time,

however, they have taken on a rusty hue now.







Look Up, Look Down-Wk-54



Look Up, Look Down

for Week 54


Earlier in August, I travelled to Queenscliff, to catch the ferry.

Queenscliff_0003While waiting I noted that the wind sock, though battered,

was indicating that the crossing would be fairly calm.


I lined up with other cars and vehicles…

Queenscliff_0010Glancing down and all I saw was churning water as the ferry

was propelled smoothly across Port Philip Bay.
