Floral Friday Challenge.


Our Weeping Cherry, 2017.

A re-post from last week.


MGW describes our weeping cherry as

a bridal veil this year,

because it touches the ground.

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.

Black and White Tuesday in colour.~~~~~


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 Tuesday


Still at Anglesea.



 Playing around with a very underexposed

pre-dawn first shot.

A Picasa Heat Map filter and

followed by the BW filter.

Colour versions next post.



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.
