Black and White Tuesday
August 22, 2016
Some Black and Whites from this morning.
Playing with reflections.
The correct view.
I think this shot looks better upside down, than…
it does the right way up!
I think the inverted shots
(those which appear to be right way up),
could pass for old BW photos, or….
maybe it’s my eyes at the end of a long day.
My contribution for this week’s
Commencing with one…
of our sunrises, thanks to our eastern facing windows.
First time I have lived in a house which can see the sun rise
and to a lesser degree set.
A Moorabool Valley sunset from last year.
The cropped and enhanced version of above.
These storm clouds flooded Geelong earlier this year.
Twenty minutes before the storm hit, Number 2 son drove
through an underpass which was seen with cars
floating along the street on the television that night.
About 2300 hours…image illuminated by lightning.
I have posted ‘crops’ of this image several times.
Manly Beach in beach weather.
Finally, one of my favourites.
I think the picture does the talking..

Week 33, 2016
While responding to a comment from
I spoke of our dogs wrecking one of our succulents.
This plant used to have a right, or back, side as well!
However, while taking this photo,
I noticed that the next succulent was missing
the opposite side.
You can just imagine the charge around the corner,
taking out the first succulent,
jumping the next plant (maybe),
then wiping out the outside of the next succulent.
I really cannot wait for old age to set into these two…at the moment!
My contribution for this week’s challenge…
In July this year, I managed to capture
some reasonable shots of the unexpected…
and have them in reasonable focus what’s more!
This sea-bird, not sure if seagull (a tern, or something else)
dropped in for breakfast as I photographed the boats.
Unfortunately subsequent photos,
as it continued to fly away with its catch,
are not as clear.
Two days earlier, July 19 I took this shot
and was very pleased when I enlarged the image…
to see the seagull in almost perfectly reflected.
It could be said that it was dipping its tip in
to see if the winter chill was abating.

Floral Friday Challenge.
In September 2013 I posted this photo of
our north garden bed and our
newly planted cactus/succulents…
whatever you like to call them.
At the top, just before the limelight acacia
is a very small cactus plant.
Today it sports flower like leaves…
and is about 80 cm in diameter.
I haven’t measured it properly,
however each paver is 40 x 40 cm.
Near enough, I say!
