Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Blue-n-Yellow

~~~~~

Blue, my favourite colour and Yellow the colour I can actually see….easily.

But together…in the one photo…I think I failed miserably this week.  

BUT, I do have blue and yellow.

Thomas_1924

Never thought that dear old Thomas would be used in a colour challenge.

Because we were not far from the waterfront, at the time,

I can only surmise he was enjoying the afternoon doing what he does best.

However, I did think he would be in mothballs for the winter.

Camellia_1855

A pink ground cover Camellia (Marge Miller) was one of several planted, this winter, in a revamped garden bed.

Its companion plant, also a Camellia, (Snow) is white with a tinge of pink and was alternated with Marge Miller.

I was going to post this as a Black and White….I think I was having BW withdrawal symptoms!

Roof_1940

I took this shot about two months ago as I found the roof fascinating.  It was the first time I had seen a slate tiled roof, at close quarters, and could only marvel at the workmanship and how well it has lasted.

Door_1943BW

The right roof above this door is where the first photo was taken.  I have walked through this door many times but only looked up once.

Better Homes and Gardens television program last Friday.

Apart from the first image, a repost, all others are the result of a quick drive around the extended neighbourhood…

Wattle trees, and now shrubs, are members of the Acacia family.

Limelight_1869

 This last image is one of several Acacia Limelights we have in our garden.  We have yet to see a flower, which is normal.  However, we have planted some above a pebble mulch and discovered the hard way that these pretty little shrubs are dirtier, and scruffier, than teenage boys below that pretty green exterior.

It only runs for 4 minutes.

Wordless Wednesday-Phoneography-Blade

As I only had my phone with me, I decided to combine both challenges this week.

~~~~~

Late last week I happened to drive past this scene in early morning traffic…no time to stop. With the benefit of a day’s work behind me I was surprised to see the vehicle in the same place.  With other motorists taking advantage of the photo opportunity.

WindFarm_1912a

This shot, of part of the Macarthur Wind Farm, was taken from the road we travel to reach our old home. The wind farm consists of 140 turbines spread over 5,500 Hectares (11,110 acres or 69.5 sections) and is currently the largest in the Southern Hemisphere.

(Source: Google – Macarthur Wind Farm for several links including Wikipedia).

I think the first picture was destined to end up at a wind farm….but that is only conjecture.

Reasons for this line of thought: 1. it is white; 2. I have heard that a person can easily walk into a wind farm blade.  This was certainly the case here; although not sure just how far would be easy.

And I did have a third reason which is no longer within grasp…..a seniors moment!  Sadly it was probably the one with the most logic. 🙂
