Weekly Photo Challenge ~ Background

There have been many times during the past few years I have driven past these scenes and thought that I should bring a camera “one day”. Since commencing Blogging, in early April, photography has come to the forefront of my past times.

As a result my Nikon and I are beginning to understand each other a little better.

Cunningham Pier 3

The view across Corio Bay to Cunningham Pier and beyond, from The Esplanade, is ever-changing.

On public holidays the foreground is a hive of activity with families having a barbecue beneath the palm trees, to celebrate the holiday. While others congregate around activities at Cunningham Pier in the background.

If all is quiet on the pier there is, in all likelihood, going to be some activity over at the yacht club.

Cunningham Pier 2

As yet I still have not been to the restaurant at the far end of Cunningham Pier, nor can I am I old enough to remember when trams used to ply the length of the pier and continue on to and beyond the Central Business District.

  10. ahhh.. I love where I live now but when I see photos of Corio Bay it does make me feel homesick. I’ll be there again next month and want to get lots of photos of around Eastern Beach.. especially the tiny boats looking across from Drumcondra to Cunningham Pier. As a kid I was convinced they really were tiny boats lol ..

    • The Bay really is a nice area and the whole foreshore has undergone much change in the past few years. I love the palm trees all around Geelong…makes it a bit different to other areas of Victoria. Hope the weather is nice for your visit.
