Black and White Tuesday: Texture

~~~~~

Inspiration for this week’s Black and White Challenge are again some random photos and some taken for this challenge.

LEAF-BW

All I know about the plant in this photo is that it grows in the tropics.

An old fence post.

This photo gives me a whole new look at something I use every day.

‘Gum’ (Eucalyptus) trees have various bark textures. This one is an old Sugar Gum with a three-foot diameter trunk.

Are you left or right handed?


I always say I’m left handed….and add that I am ‘ambiguous’ (tongue in cheek). It also depends on what activity I am involved in. For example, I write, or scrawl, with my left hand. My teachers gave up trying to convert me. Right handed golfer, left hand for throwing a ball. And I do take a small amount of delight in watching the expression on restaurant staff when they see the dining cutlery has been swapped around.

Before making a phone call, do you ever rehearse what you are going to say?

Only if I am calling someone and then it is usually restricted to writing down a few notes.

Crunchy Peanut Butter or Smooth Peanut butter? Anything with your peanut butter?

Crunchy. This is the only ‘food’ which HAS to have nuts in it. I have eaten meals where the cook has thrown in half peanuts which managed to be in a vertical position when I chewed my food. The pointy end of a nut being rammed into one’s gums I’d not pleasant.

PS:  Peanut butter and jam is the best late afternoon snack if I am in the mood….although with cholesterol etc., to think of that treat does not happen all that often.  If anyone wondering what Aussie jam is I have had a lengthy discussion (in the comments) with bdh63 earlier in the day.

How many rings before you answer the phone?

 

Depends how far away from the phone I am. I did work for a person who had a phone installed in his toilet! No way…….

These equine which have been in the family for as long as I can remember.

They are hanging on the wall behind me watching every  move I make.

A favourite.

A quick stop  yesterday to photograph a real life horse rugged up against the winter chills.

This is a meet the family picture – a repost from the through your eyes challenge.

I think it suitable for the EEE challenge.

Eyes from a few months to nearly eighty are represented here along with eyes from a couple of ‘potential’ family members.  Time will tell if they make the grade….or not.
