My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Tour Guide

~~~~~

I commenced taking photos in and around

Geelong when I commenced blogging.

I enjoy having a quiet moment at the Eastern Beach…

particularly in the winter.

This shot is near where our camera club meets.

 Geelong’s now completed library.

 

A Government building known locally as the

Upside Down building.

Sounds like a government doesn’t it?

 

Fairly certain that, or at least part of

this building is a suburban library.

 

Alongside the new there are also

old buildings such as the post office.

Our Floating Christmas Tree causes controversy

each year (cost of running it) and

draws thousands of visitors to view it.

Geelong’s main street runs right down

to the waterfront and this art work.

We didn’t  know what they were

and dubbed them shark’s teeth.

Only last year I used this term only

to be told they represent yachts on the bay.

A drive up Moorabool Street (main street)

will provide this view of Kardinia Park’s

light towers at Geelong’s Football ground.

Eastern Beach

Entrance to Cunningham Pier.

Geelong’s Carousel in fog

Geelong Ferris Wheel.

 

Corio Bay also provides some… 

glorious sunrises, and…

sunsets.

If you don’t want to do anything else

there are always ‘starving’ seagulls around.

 

This side of the Bay is  my favourite.

With Cunningham Pier Restaurant

as a backdrop to the constantly moving boats,

the scene is always changing

as winds and tide see fit.

and when the sun drops below the horizon…

everything changes.

Make sure Geelong is on your list

of places to visit if ever Victoria.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Letter-Y

My contribution for

this week’s challenge

Letter-Y

(Needs to start or end with the letter Y)

New photos this week, commencing in…

Ypres, Belgium and the Flanders Field Museum exterior.

 

Still in Ypres and a shot of Menin Gate.

Across the Channel to York and the…

Yorkboat departure point.

Yorkboat now known as City Cruises.

Yachts on Corio Bay.

A different view of Yachts on Corio Bay.

This part of the Bay always looks amazing

as the yachts constantly change positions

under the influence of wind and tide.
