Cee’s Black and White Challenge:

Wheels.

~~~~~

 A selection of wheels…

wheel_0015bwIndian motorbike.

wheel_0016bwAbout a mid 1970s Holden Kingswood wheel on a

GTS model…read ‘souped up’…bigger engine etc.

wheel_0018bwThe Torana was a small car of the 1960s and early 1970s.

This one was probably the model after my first Torana.

If you have ever seen the Bathurst 500 (miles), now 1000 (km),

car race you will know that this little car won

many of the 60s and 70s races at Bathurst, NSW.

I have enlarge this image so that I could read the badge on the front

of this car.

Although I have not seen this one in action,

I now believe it a USA car, but built in Germany.

It is an amphibious car and was made in the early to mid 60s.

Google ‘ampficar’

The Wikipedia article complete with images

Its bright red paint attracted me.

Red cars go 5% faster in Australia…

don’t know about other parts of the world 🙂

I am also calling this a wheel…it belongs to

General Motors Holden

an Australian made car…only for the nest few years though.

I think the tree frames, at least on three sides,

these African Fish Eagles nicely.

About twelve months ago, I posted a photo similar to this.

duck_0002Last weekend I decided to go have a look for myself.

duck-leigh-river_0006This section of the beautiful, but almost dry, Leigh River

was the setting of the Shelford Duck race.

duck_0027A few minutes later, the lead group of

seven hundred and fifty ducks came into view…

My first sight of African animals…

impala_0504 was these bontebok…

impala_0505enjoying an early morning frolic…

impala_0510in Johannesburg.

There could be some blesbok among this group.  

To my eye they are very similar,

but both members of the antelope family.
