Weekly Photo Challenge-Windows



My contribution for this week’s challenge…



A variety of windows this week.

They say that eyes are a window to one’s soul.

I think these gentle eyes truly reflect

the nature of the beast.

Which eyes are really smiling?

First or second shot?

My contribution for

this week’s challenge


F for Fun


The F words this week…F for Fun.

Geelong’s Eastern Beach and foreshore precinct.

Geelong’s summertime Ferris wheel.


The Botanic Gardens Fountain at Geelong.


Tourists and locals alike enjoy a friendly stroll

in the foreshore Precinct.


Some use the foreshore to sunbathe.


Early on a foggy August morning there is not much fun

to be had at the Carousel.


When the sun shines and you just want to relax,

what better way to do so than by feeding

the seagulls on the foreshore.

As I mentioned in the BW post playing around with

an under exposed pre-dawn first shot.

Using only Picasa 3 as an editing tool,

I often think these abstract type photos

look nicer than the real deal.

The main reason being that after hearing

MGW comment that this or that painting

does not work with our house colour scheme,

these photos can be manipulated to suit any decor.


Hope you enjoyed.

Black and White Challenge:



Backs from Europe this week…

 and we saw many backs walking away

from us while touring.

I guess we made the backs

for other photographers.

And while in Florence we saw this

imitation of David…but still a back.

Entering Nice one of the first things we saw

was a tarmac full of private jets.

There were times a chair would have

been quite welcome.

I even thought cycling was better than walking.

And I guess a visit to Nice would not be complete

without a tourist shot or two of sunbathers’ backs.

Week 106


Numbers near the Barwon River mouth.In a playground right alongside the river…

are the designed to reach the young

how to double…

or show them that is their beginning of a lifetime

of numbers ruling the world?

Melbourne’s Royal Arcade is also

dominated by numbers.

One Word Photo Challenge-Kangaroo






While at Clear Lake Manitoba, in 1976,

I befriended, or vice versa,

a holidaying Canadian family.

One of the outings Mr Canada and I had

was a game of  golf, where after one of our

T-shots we had to wait for a brown bear to

cross the fairway.

Just down the road, at Anglesea Golf Course,

some of our native wildlife

keep the fairways  trimmed,

much to the delight of both

holiday maker and tourists alike.

Not so sure if the locals really

appreciated them though.

Sun and storms are always easy to capture…

at least more so than snowy conditions.

Late January, 2016, these storm clouds

dumped a huge amount of rain on Geelong

in a short space of time.

Cars were floating in low lying areas

where water was two to three feet deep.

December 2014 produced this

spectacular display of lightning.

While we grumble about the wind

which now reaches our house,

due to lack of mature trees,

the plus side is those trees

do not block these displays of

nature at her finest.
