Odd Ball

Week 35


 An oar swinging from a tree branch?

wimmera-river_0058Definitely fits the ‘Odd Ball’ category.

wimmera-river_0059I cannot help but wonder how it found its way up there

above the Wimmera River.

Travel Theme-Feet




Travel Theme.


Photos from South Africa.



elephant_0238These feet belong to Thembo, a 30-year-old, six ton elephant which

our guide raised for some years.

We were told that 2.5 times the circumference of an elephants front foot,

is the same distance as ground to shoulder.

So, next time we wonder how tall is that elephant,

all we have to  do is measure around its foot.

leopard_0729After sighting these feet I would happily have gone home…if I had to.

This sighting occurred around 5 PM on only the second day of our safari.

By then we had seen specimens of all African animals in the wild.

This just topped it off.

I still refer to it as the National Geographic shot.

How much I would have missed had I gone home.

Weekly Photo Challenge-From-Every-Angle



My contribution for this week’s challenge…



I have been wanting to use these images since our

Melbourne Laneways excursion in late June.

EFIJY-car_0190We came upon the Holden EFijy…

EFIJY-car_0191on display at the National Art Gallery of Victoria,

which now seems to be part of Federation Square.

EFIJY-car_0192The EFijy was designed in Australia by Holden

in tribute to the FJ Holde which was one of the

first models produced in Australia.

EFIJY-car_0193The EFijy is based on America’s Chevrolette Corvette…

EFIJY-car_0194and made its debut at the

Australian 2005 International Motor Show.

While I have only EVER driven a Holden as my main/family car,

I am not a car whiz…all information provided

is readily available on good old Wikipedia.

EFIJY-car_0195Whenever we saw this view of an elephant in Africa,

our guide would comment,

‘…there goes the whole of Africa…’

I think I have covered every angle! 






Black and White Challenge:



Love this theme….

tree_021In slightly warmer, drier parts of Victoria ‘gum’ trees

are dotted around paddocks to provide shade.

I remember planting plantations, with Dad

as our farm did not have any trees on it.

Neither did neighbouring farms.

I think it may have something to do with clearing land

in the 1920s or that in 1939 fires ravaged our area.trees_1577

About twenty years ago the ‘blue gum’ companies came into our area.

Thousands of acres of Eucalyptus Globulus have been planted.

I was phoned just after Dad passed away and

eventually we decided to plant trees.

Harvesting concluded last year and left

a good deal more mess than promised.

However, the land has been re-leased and will be

cleaned and replanted with new trees.

Apparently wood pulp is used, in part, to make clothing.

Trees in  the background were to be harvested late last year,

but are still standing and maybe harvested this year.

tree_6111Although this is a scene near Geelong

it is also typical of many farms in Western Victoria.


My post is a bit early , but I am heading off on a day trip

with my son today…won’t be home till late this afternoon.  

Cameras are packed. 🙂

Black and White Tuesday

 August 25, 2015


Some Black and Whites from our walk around

Geelong on Sunday morning

geelong_0005In 2007-2008 I was teaching some of the

disengaged youth of Geelong

on a part-time basis.

geelong_0195I was told that they painted a lane wall one day when

I was not rostered to work.

And by painted, I mean coloured in between

the lines drawn by a professional artist.

I did try to cajole one of my students into painting a canvas for us.

However, the offer of money, paint and canvas

was not enough to get him enthused to put his skills to use.

With the benefit of hindsight, I now wonder if art

he claimed to be his own was

merely colouring between the lines.

geelong_0178A camera club colleague also stated that he loved this work

but could  not abide a simple tag which truly defaced a wall.

art_3977Probably none of the above (BWs) would make it to our walls,

however, we do have several inexpensive pieces

similar to this one, around our walls.



Hope you enjoyed.


Which Way Challenge-15-Wk-33


When on a photographic walk around a city…Geelong_0012there is only one way to get from this end…

to the other end of a lane.

Geelong_0053It used to be called Shanks’ Pony

when I was much, much younger.

Really!  It’s still not a bad way to describe walking.

Odd Ball

Week 34


The camera club I belong to had a morning walk

around Geelong, on Sunday.

pigeons_0058I only had my 105 lens and these ‘birds’ were way up high.

I’m still not sure if they were real or

another part of the art we had been viewing.
