Cars – New, Vintage, Toy.

All sorts of cars…
car_0025I think this is a Ford Falcon…based on tail lights.

Wheels_0234Someone did tell me the make and model of this one…

however, cars and models are in one ear and out the other.

I just want mine to proceed 🙂

car_0429A December 2013 registered Holden SV6 Commodore.

car_0229abA variety of wheels here.

car_0422These wheels came to halt for another road user.

TREES_0049-MV

Finally, two shots from a recent visit to the Moorabool Valley.

trees_0002-MVI would have loved to have farmed this sort of country.

Shelter and shade everywhere…

not to mention natural nesting for birds.

Weekly Photo Challenge-Motion

~~~~~

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Motion

~~~~~

I have posted all sorts of motion this week.

corio-bay_5803The bow wave, on Corio Bay, indicates motion.

runningImpala_0409aThis impala was more energetic…

impala_0399as were these.

elephant_0960aThe motion created by the clear off head wave is gorgeous…

as long as one is not too close.

elephants_0453In the afternoon sun…motionless was the way to go.

And we all held our collective breaths when this motion began.

And we all hoped that the baby,

about two feet at the shoulders,

would make it across.

They were snorkling to Namibia

ANZAC DAY 2015

ANZAC DAY 2015

Photo opportunities are all over Australia and New Zealand this morning

as we commemorate,

the 100th anniversary of the Gallipoli landing.

ANZAC-DAY-2015_6086

While the major centres receive a majority of media publicity

it is the rural areas which were settled by

returned soldiers from two World Wars

ANZAC-DAY-2015_6091

It is these same small towns who may have had their

heart and soul ripped out with the death

of well known identities, sportsman and family members.

ANZAC-DAY-2015_6098

This post is in memory of of all the service men and women

who have served our country

and whose home was a small rural centre.

ANZAC-DAY-2015_6093

For those service men and women…

Lest We Forget.

I would like to visit Courcelette, in France, sometime in the next few years as my Grandfather served on the Western Front and was awarded a Distinguished Conduct Medal at Courcelette during World War I.

 

W Carlin_Australian9_2inchHowitzerFiring_YpresThis photograph is now in  the public domain – copyright expired…

however, it can be found on the Australian War Memorial Webe Site…

The photo was taken in September 1917

on the Western Front (Belgium),  in the Ypres Area, Voormezeele

My maternal grandfather served with the Light Horse at Gallipoli

and I have read part of his diary many, many years ago.

Unfortunately any such memorabilia was not passed on to me.

I searched the Australian War Memorial website this morning

and have not even found his name, let alone service records.
