Floral Friday Challenge.

~~~~~

This morning we had another ‘pea soup’ fog in Geelong…

web_0867which, for a few hours converted some of our garden

into some delicate works of art.

web_0853While not quite ‘floral’ I think it is as pretty as

any flower in the garden and unlike flowers,

conditions need to be ‘just so’ to capture it.

My contribution for this week’s

 Word of the Week Challenge…

Rust

~~~~~

Thinking of a rusty post I remembered this photo of…

ferriswheel_0505a ferris wheel.  A bit rusty for me to ride on.

curves2_1801Rusty red bricks, rusting metal all over fifty years old.

metallic_shed4

A rusty roof in the middle of a city, and…

shed_1858a

another rusty roof in rural Victoria.  Not an unusual sight.

fort_0030AThese rusting rings are…
fort_0031

are set into rusty bricks and rusting surrounds.
soldiers_0047Is this soldier pushing ammunition carts to…
metal_0106-001this relic; part of the gun mount which fired the first shot of World war I.
soldiers_0114These three may have been clean steel at one time,

however, they have taken on a rusty hue now.

My

Look Up, Look Down

for Week 54

~~~~~

Earlier in August, I travelled to Queenscliff, to catch the ferry.

Queenscliff_0003While waiting I noted that the wind sock, though battered,

was indicating that the crossing would be fairly calm.

Queenscliff_0004

I lined up with other cars and vehicles…

Queenscliff_0005foregoing an early morning coffee in favour of one on board.

Queenscliff_0006 Underway and looking back to Queenscliff, from the topside.

Queenscliff_0010Glancing down and all I saw was churning water as the ferry

was propelled smoothly across Port Philip Bay.

Cee’s Odd Ball Challenge-Wk-26

~~~~~

Odd Ball

Week 26

~~~~~

I think this suits the Odd Ball Challenge

Totally odd that we should even need to worry

about this little bloke growing into an old tusker…

elephants_0059

however in all likelihood he will die at the hands of a poacher and not old age.

Have a read of this article, titled

A World without Elephants

on the Africa Geographic site

No idea why my images are not being displayed regularly

Floral Friday Challenge.

I took this photo in Hall’s Gap a few months ago.

golden-ash_0185It appears to be on the point of turning colour and

I’m sure those would have made a glorious display

a few weeks after this photo.

Travel Theme-Orange

~~~~~

My

Orange

Travel Theme.

~~~~~

For many years car makers in Australia have painted their cars,

white, silvers, tan as their brighter colours…

all colours of which I am not fond.

car_0429Last year General Motors Holden released an orange paint for their cars.

Of course it’s not just ‘Orange’,  it is ‘Fantale Orange’

Personally I prefer a brighter coloured car…easier to see.

car_0431Now it’s a well-known fact that red cars go 5% fast than any other colour.

These are in the red range of the colour spectrum, so does that mean they go 2.5% faster?

Weekly Photo Challenge-Fray

~~~~~

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Fray

~~~~~

As soon as I brushed the cobwebs out of my eyes this morning

I knew the direction of this post.

frayed_0006Yesterday Ginger’s new bedding arrived and

was inserted into her kennel.

During the clean out, this piece of smelly frayed carpet,

which I have looked for on many occasion, was discovered.

~~~~~

frayed_0008

It wasn’t because I was in the dog house, that I searched for it,

we were seeking padding for furniture when kids moved out.

~~~~~

frayed_0011But I can assure you it smelled a lot better being extracted

from Ginger’s kennel than it did being extracted

from the rubbish bin this morning.

frayed_0015The second object for this challenge I am wearing right now.

My favourite green windcheater/sweat shirt.

We moved from the farm nine years ago and

my two green windcheaters

are constant, comfortable reminders of the ‘good old days’.

frayed_0026However, a few months ago I was feeling the cold and

held my constant companion up to the light

and I could see right through it.

(Focus on everything but the tear in the seam.)

About then I decided not to throw it out,

but to  wear another one underneath…for warmth.

Summer is just around the corner 🙂
