carwash_0462so when the car wash began to work its magic…

carwash_0463I thought that a few photos from within the car… 

carwash_0464

of the car wash at work made sense.

A Word a Week Photography Challenge–Atmospheric

~~~~~

My contribution for this week’s

 Word of the Week Challenge…

Atmospheric

~~~~~

Growing up on a farm meant Dad always his ‘weather eye’ on the barometer around shearing, cropping, lamb marking and all those other weather dependent activities.

barometer_0488

This was Dad’s barometer.

Some of my earliest memories are of Dad giving the glass face a whack with his knuckle as he passed it in the morning.  A quick look would provide him with all the information he required about forthcoming atmospheric conditions.  I don’t think the morning knuckle whack caused the cracks in the glass.  This barometer is from the 1950s, maybe even the 1940s and is calibrated accordingly.

barometer_0480

MGW gave my first very own barometer/weather station.

This new fangled barometer also included a thermometer and a humidity gauge.  However, with one or two parts going missing before, or during, moving  house it was decreed not suitable for our new house.

~~~~~

barometer_0477So it was, a few years ago, that MGW gave me a new weather station which measures all the atmospheric conditions needed to be known on a daily basis.

Barometer in the middle, temperature to the left and relative humidity on the right.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Orange

My contribution for this week’s

Orange Subjects

Challenge

~~~~~

We were asked to accompany Number 1 son furniture shopping this morning.

 Forgot to take my camera, or phone, but all twenty some-things are equipped with a phone and he took the furniture photos for me.

I have never seen so much orange in furniture shops before.

~~~~~

sunset_0350I may be stretching the colour here….have never been really good with shade.

sunset_0351I hope everyone with normal eyesight agrees there is a touch of orange in these sunset shots.  If not, too bad!  My eyes say there is some orangish tones.

~~~~~

Now for my pièce de résistance.

car_0428

Last week there was a news item, on Australian TV, relating to a pace car at a USA race track, which caught fire.

It was an Australian made car…the same vintage as this car, as a matter of fact.

Unfortunately General Motors, and all other car manufacturers have announced they are ceasing to make cars in Australia.

Rather sad when our cars are being exported.

~~~~~

car_0429The “General” has been making Holden cars since the late forties, early fifties.

This is a Holden Commodore, SV6.

Just not sure if it qualifies for the challenge as it is not orange.

The colour is ‘Fantale‘.
