Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Industrial

~~~~~

My contribution for this week’s

Fun Foto Challenge

~~~~~

During my youth, sighting the Geelong Cement Works

meant we only had a few minutes to drive

before Dad would stop for a break in Geelong.

cement_0528Today, however, like many of Geelong’s industries…

cement_0530it stands idle…unwanted…

cement_0535except by graffiti artists.

cement_0539Now, overgrown and uncared for…

cement_0540it is nothing more than a…

building_0196silent sentry overlooking Geelong City.

building_0002One of the industries which is thriving is the housing industry.

Here a cement slab is being poured for one of the

many of the new houses built since I moved to Geelong.

I receive when trying to leave a comment

I know I am me.  I’m not sure why

WordPress does not agree that I am me!!

Does anyone else have this problem?

A photo shoot around the garden this morning

provided me with some minimalist shots.

in the process of burst into bloom.

black-agapanthus_0003This ‘Black’ Agapanthus is little further along

but still not quite in full bloom

Weekly Photo Challenge-Warmth

~~~~~

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Warmth

~~~~~

With the sun shining at a balmy twenty something degrees,

what better to do this morning but take a walk in the garden.

spider_0070I was not alone in thinking that was a good idea…

spider_070a whole family had decided to do the same.

spider_0075Although maybe the fear of being walked upon

lead them to scurry up the garden edging…

 

spider_0080before dashing across the mulch for the safety of a shrub.

Gives a whole new meaning to ‘talking the kids for a walk’ 🙂

By the way…these walkers are not my ‘friends’.

If I have a phobia…arachnophobia it is!
