Black and White Tuesday

 February 23, 2016


With the temperature aiming for the high thirties,

I decided to tie Taji up  in the shade of the

back verandah while I kept an appointment.Taji_0817

Upon my return she  had decided to take

herself for a walk in my absence.
Taji_0819I call her ‘goldfish’ at times, because three seconds after

the first photo was taken she discovered the pot…
which up until the weekend had contained an agapanthus.

Taji_0821It bounces, makes a noise and she can put her head into it.

I shake my head in despair when I think of the money

spent on toys for her to play with.



Hope you enjoyed.

Odd Ball

Week 8, 2016


Spirit of ANZAC

Centenary Experience

at Melbourne’s Exhibition Centre.Spirit-of-ANZAC_8500

 Australian troops at The Great Pyramid of Giza.

Visitors can look through the ‘cameras’ and

the names of soldiers appear in the viewfinder.

Spirit-of-ANZAC_8499This picture is well-known because

not all of the soldiers are alive.

One died the day before this shot was taken

and his mates gave him a helping hand

so he could have his photo taken with them.


Visitors receive an iPod and headphones

before entering the exhibition.

Each time one enters a new section appropriate

commentary commences.

The exhibition is travelling around Australia

culminating in Sydney in June next 2017.

Click this  link to see if it is coming to a city near you

Allow a couple of hours to view it (slowly).

Sponsored by

The Victorian Government and Telstra (our major Telco)

this exhibition is free,

although you are asked to book tickets.

Visitors are allowed to take cameras into the exhibit,

although flash photography is banned.

I was also given permission to by Telstra

use my photos in Social Media.

Travel Theme-Abstract




Travel Theme.


Some random Abstracts.


Week 1


I once heard it said that while this is

fairly obviously a zebra…it is kinda of abstract.

Not my words.
terrapin_0307The same could be said of this, I guess.

Black and White Challenge:



Clouds bringing rain?

Not this lot.


Winter sun over Corio Bay


Ten A.M. and the sun was still fighting to break through the fog

fog_0010Foggy morning.


Fog makes driving a little more dangerous…


especially if it hides this bend in the road.


We have a small plastic ice-cream container to catch water from the air conditioner…which the dogs occasionally drink.

One wet morning we found some new inhabitants in the container.  Again, it has happened only once…that we know of.


Finally, horizontal icicles.

During our second winter in our new house I was eating breakfast

when I noticed the spout/gutter outside the kitchen window

 was overflowing, for a very short period of time.

A few days later same thing happened.

Ladder and camera (of the day) were soon in hand

to photograph this horizontal icicle.

We had several bitterly cold days that winter…days when heating was on all day just to take thee  edge off the chill inside.

I  know that does not compare to three or four feet of snow, but….it was cold for us.
