Machinery I spotted a few weeks ago.

machinery_7377I think this is a header for harvesting cereal crops.

I’m a bit vague on that because

we never grew many crops for grain.

machinery_7386aI’m fairly certain that I carted in thousands of bales of hay

on the back of the truck similar to this one.

The tractor, however, was before my tractor driving days.

machinery_7393Once again I never used a three furrow plough like this,

but I certainly jammed my fingers often enough

while hitching it up to Dad’s tractors.

Whoever designed this piece of machinery

forgot to add a leg, wheel…anything,

which would help its balance while

it was being manoeuvred by hand.

Odd Ball

Week 35

~~~~~

 An oar swinging from a tree branch?

wimmera-river_0058Definitely fits the ‘Odd Ball’ category.

wimmera-river_0059I cannot help but wonder how it found its way up there

above the Wimmera River.

My

Feet

Travel Theme.

Photos from South Africa.

elephant_0238These feet belong to Thembo, a 30-year-old, six ton elephant which

our guide raised for some years.

We were told that 2.5 times the circumference of an elephants front foot,

is the same distance as ground to shoulder.

So, next time we wonder how tall is that elephant,

all we have to  do is measure around its foot.

leopard_0729After sighting these feet I would happily have gone home…if I had to.

This sighting occurred around 5 PM on only the second day of our safari.

By then we had seen specimens of all African animals in the wild.

This just topped it off.

I still refer to it as the National Geographic shot.

How much I would have missed had I gone home.

Weekly Photo Challenge-From-Every-Angle

 

~~~~~

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

From-Every-Angle

~~~~~

I have been wanting to use these images since our

Melbourne Laneways excursion in late June.

EFIJY-car_0190We came upon the Holden EFijy…

EFIJY-car_0191on display at the National Art Gallery of Victoria,

which now seems to be part of Federation Square.

EFIJY-car_0192The EFijy was designed in Australia by Holden

in tribute to the FJ Holde which was one of the

first models produced in Australia.

EFIJY-car_0193The EFijy is based on America’s Chevrolette Corvette…

EFIJY-car_0194and made its debut at the

Australian 2005 International Motor Show.

EFIJY-car_0196
While I have only EVER driven a Holden as my main/family car,

I am not a car whiz…all information provided

is readily available on good old Wikipedia.

EFIJY-car_0195Whenever we saw this view of an elephant in Africa,

our guide would comment,

‘…there goes the whole of Africa…’

I think I have covered every angle!
