Cee-BW-Challenge-Rocks

~~~~~

About ten minutes from Geelong is this rock formation

known as Dog Rocks.

 

It is a popular place for photographers…

 

to gather for star photography.

I am afraid out on cold nights doesn’t appeal.

 

 

Early mornings are more my time of day.

For anyone wondering, I have no idea

why this rocky outcrop is called Dog Rocks.

I believe it takes commitment…

to get to this stage in one’s life…

 

 

30th Wedding Anniversary

And even more to make it to a 30th Anniversary

as we did a two, nearly three, years ago.

 

Perhaps some may think a hot air balloon ride

an odd way to celebrate an anniversary.

We loved it.

FOWChallenge-Electric

~~~~~

In Melbourne…

electric-powered trams moved people around the city…

 

…and in Geelong electric lights illuminate…

Cunningham Pier after dark…

…not too mention illuminating our

floating Christmas Tree this time of year.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Candid

~~~

Some Candid shots and crops

from Vancouver.

I saw a similar scene near Melbourne last year.

It was a photography assignment.

 

 

It may appear that I was taking a shot of this lady.

I can assure she was not my subject…

this is the scene I wanted to capture…leggo Orca.

In 1976 there was the real Orca doing tricks for tourists.

Is this a tribute?

Ever since taking this image I have pondered their story.

Was it young love, or models posing for

the ‘photographer’ in the foreground.

 

 

 

It was only this morning that I noticed the ‘photographer’

has his left arm dangling by his side and that

he appears to be using his phone (for its old-fashioned use)

and not taking a photo at all.



Aussie tourists being photographed by, yes,

another Aussie tourist.

A photograph of fur was as close to seeing

the Grouse Mountain Grizzly Bears.

Those we asked did not know…we left….

and several of our fellow tourists arrived at feed time.
