Weekly Photo Challenge-Spare

 

~~~~~

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Spare

~~~~~

The first thing that came to mind was…Spare-tyres_0848

the spare tyre which many develop with the onset of age.

Others…just battle with it all their lives.

Geelong_2910

Then I searched for spares and found a

folder named accordingly and

this image of a family car after a

Grand Final victory

at the end of the

Australian Rules Football  season, 2007.

 

seagulls_0006

Finally, yesterday, Friday, I spent some time at

Geelong’s foreshore playing around with my camera again.

These two are just part of a larger flock of seagulls

which were having a disagreement within range of my camera.

On the whole this series of shots is reasonably respectable

and will be kept in mind for future challenges.

The shot has been darkened slightly in Picasa.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Architecture

~~~~~

My contribution for this week’s

Architecture

challenge.

~~~~~

While perhaps not exactly architecture…

skyline-melbourne_7726-B

I do like this photo of the Melbourne skyline,

taken from Williamstown, an eastern suburb.

Royal-Arcade_0047Royal Arcade…exterior

Royal-Arcade_0055and I am reasonably sure this is

the Royal Arcade interior.

Reasonably because I cannot see Gog and Magog,

time keepers of the Arcade at the far end.

Melbourne-PO_2849

 On the corner of Bourke and Elizabeth Streets…

Melbourne-PO_1898stands the Elizabeth Street Post Office building.

Melbourne-PO_2851

 It has been years/decades since

I darkened its doors

and there appears to have been

some alterations inside,

so I am not sure if it still is a Post Office.

 

federation-square_0181The home of Australian Art.

 federation-square_0189

We either love or hate the architectural design of

Melbourne’s Federation Square

and its surrounding buildings.

I think it is a bit different, in a good way,

to the concrete monoliths in most of the city.

Some shots from Torquay Beach, yesterday.Torquay1_0107

Smaller waves still present the same problems

regarding staying vertical, it appears.

Torquay2_0108

Facial features have been blurred because

I do not know the subjects.

Torquay3_0109However, some street photographers I know, say

subjects in a public place are fair game.

Any thoughts appreciated.:-)

Odd Ball

Week 21, 2016

~~~~~

This morning was much like

any other Sunday morning.

1-Candi_Taji_0158

By morning coffee time…

2Candi_Taji_0159

Candi and Sox had, as usual,

decided it was nap time.

Candi_Taji_0150

Then Taji decided to join them…

 Candi_Taji_0153

but where was she going to fit,

because Sox wasn’t going to move.

Candi_Taji_0157Candi became a little upturned,

but Taji managed to find a spot.
