My contribution for this week’s



Family eyes…mostly.throughmyeyes3


Now some of my favourite eyes….




The gentle giant which we are trying our best to exterminate.

So sad…


Six week old lion cub.


The lion cub’s mother.

Sadly she died about twelve months after this shot was taken.

She was only about fifteen feet from our vehicle and

when she turned and look at me/camera/vehicle…

there was definitely goose bumps all over me.

Odd Ball

Week 34, 2016


No….Australia has not yet taken to

driving on the wrong side of the road.


Simply the magic of mirrors

in one of Geelong’s main Streets.

Travel Theme-History




Travel Theme.


My first thoughts were of churches I have

photographed over the past few years.


This shot can never be captured again as

someone in their wisdom has cut down the

tree which created this gorgeous shadow.


The interior of many churches,

particularly the old bluestone variety,

has been retained despite changing

the functionality of the church

for modern masses/services.


The craftsmanship in these windows

is from another era altogether.


Many old country churches

are being re-purposed.

The first church I ever attended is now a barn of sorts.

Another, similar to this,

is now a family residence.


Then there are members of society which

think this is what a Church should look like.


In this case 140 years of history was turned to

rubble in a few hours early one morning.


  There was speculation that it had something to do

with child sex abuse within Churches as

several churches were destroyed by fire in the Geelong area.

Church-B_7998My guess is that if it is ever rebuilt this church

it will moved slightly and will be part of a school complex

and future generations of children will be told

how their parents or grandparents

were married in that corner of the playground.


Not as silly as it sounds as MGW and I were married in

what is now an Aldi car park in Geelong 🙂



Where’s My Backpack:History





Happiness is…..

Having an ear…


 to chew, or…


a game of keepings off.


And after burning all that energy,

a comfortable spot for a nap,

whether alone, or…


with a friend.


A Photo a Week Challenge: Happiness is.


Weekly Photo Challenge-Frame



My contribution for this week’s challenge…



A month or so ago I noted that on the first wekend of October

there is going to be an art show nearby and inquired

if there was a photography section.

There is.


I have posted both these photos in various challenges

but I have never been as pleased as seeing them

as A3 size images framed in A2 frames.



I probably only entered because I was sent an entry form.

But I like all five shots I am going to enter…provided

Number 2 Son, and or future DIL, remember to

take them into the show, as we will not be home

until after the show.

Sunrise - Corio Bay

Sunrise – Corio Bay

This last shot may be more to this week’s challenge.

There is only one spot along Corio Bay

where this shot can be taken and

even here I have had to use some of Photoshop’s features

to remove electricity wires and pole.

I have also since revisited this shot, several times,

to clean up my mistakes in this shot  🙂
