A Word a Week Photography Challenge–Frame


My contribution for this week’s

 Word of the Week Challenge…



I seem to be using random images for lots of recent challenges..more again this week.
church_0311A high level church frame.

statue_1829One of our acacias famed by a piece of garden art.

church_0305Not a regular four-sided frame but I think the two cypress trees do the trick in this case.

bucketheadDuring my search for photos with frames I happened across this one again.

Dear old Brandy’s head was certainly framed by this bucket while his eye was healing.

Brandy passed away in 2001.  This photo was taken four or five years earlier.

He was the most loyal, faithful dog I have ever had.





Weekly Photo Challenge-Abandoned


My contribution for this week’s challenge…



Standing tall over Geelong West is the abandoned Cement Works.


As seen here right on the edge of suburbia.  When it closed there was talks of converting the towers in to apartments, however, I think this idea has also been abandoned.cement_0530~~~

cement_0531Easy to see… 


that there has only been one group


of citizens at work around here of recent times.

cement_0539It is the first time I have stopped…

cement_0540and noticed the rubble and general decay…

cement_0543which now surrounds a factory which supplied Victoria with most of its cement.  

In hindsight this was probably one of the first major industries to abandon Geelong.  Since then wool sales have moved to Melbourne’s Western Suburbs, Ford announced the closure of its Geelong manufacturing plant and Alcoa’s Point Henry Smelter is another employer to announce its impending closure within the past six months.
