Which Way Challenge-15-2906

~~~~~

By the time I found these tracks, on Sunday…Flinders-St_0178

 my feet were definitely trying to tell me something.Southern-Cross-Station_0223And it was the same something my knees were grumbling about.
Southern-Cross-Station_0225By the time I took this shot all aforementioned joints

realised they were in the home straight…

Southern-Cross-Station_0226and knew exactly which way they were going.

Floral Friday Challenge.

A few years ago our Manchurian Pear blossoms were…
Blossom_0042thick and plentiful.

manchurian-pear_0411aLate last week I found a few tiny early blooms arriving.

manchurian-pear_0412However, when I included my thumb the bloom did not appear that small…

at nearly two centimetres in diameter.

Apologies for the quality of this photo…

holding a camera in one hand while trying to

stretch the other into focus was not

what my shaking hands wanted to do. 🙂

Cee’s Odd Ball Challenge-15Wk-26

This week’s

Odd Ball

Challenge

~~~~~

This evening I have aching feet and knees,

which will be worse in the morning,

after spending most of today

walking around Melbourne’s Laneways.

So, today, one quick peek at the results of Sunday’s efforts.

This is one small part of a much larger painting.

Travel Theme-Tiny

My

Tiny

Travel Theme.

~~~~~

Tiny is such a relative word.

For example, generally we would not call a house cat big,

but what does the mouse it’s chasing think of it?

moorabool-sunset_6704dOn the horizon are trees which are mature

and standing some 60 to 80 feet tall…

perhaps a little higher…

and up to 5 feet through the bole.

However, when Mother Nature is overlaid

these large trees are tiny.

Weekly Photo Challenge-Muse

 

~~~~~

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Muse

~~~~~

One of the definitions of muse was inspiration,

which is my take on the muse challenge.
Backpack_0319The contents, or rather some things that

are missing, are a major muse for me.
camera_0312Apart from photographing my almost, empty camera bag,

I delight in using my camera to take shots like this.

Or is the inspiration the view??

fog_1832Or maybe catching an early foggy morning…

corio-bay_0118however, with the purchase of a decent camera equipment

I can now take shots of wildlife wherever it maybe, and…

corio-bay_0119sneak in for some close-ups without disturbing it.

paper-mill-original_6423This year I found myself out of work about

two days prior to returning.

I decided to learn a bit about Photoshop.

Above is an original photo.

I decided to see if I could improve it.

paper-mill-BW_6423a-iI think the end result is a vast improvement that many could,

possibly, have completed in a few minutes.

It was my muse/inspiration for around a week.

Ten minutes here, ten minutes there,

during TV advertisements, and so on.

So I think it is safe to say that my muse, at least this year

is to continue improving my photography, skills

waiting for the block to house a supermarket.

This photo was taken at least a year ago and

still no super market.

Although the house is gone.

a gorgeous house for Mrs Weaver…

The blurry blob in the background is also

a weaver’s nest/house

pelican_0067And with pelicans weighing up to thirty pounds

this has to be the most sturdy house of all.
