Weekly Photo Challenge-My-Worldly-Place

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

My Worldly Place

~~~~~

I decided on a ‘then’ and ‘now’ slant

to my post this week.Now, Geelong is my place in the world…


Recent additions to the cement works.


Geelong Botanical Gardens

 

Geelong’s Eastern Beach

 

Cunningham Pier at dusk

An old wool store,

now refurbished to become

Deakin University’s

Waterfront Campus

Cunningham pier in the back ground

and what we dubbed ‘The Sharks Teeth’

in the foreground.

Recently told they represent sails on Corio Bay.

‘The Sharks Teeth’ and Geelong’s main street.


Now the small town where I spent most of my life. 

As a child these oak trees guarded

the northern entrance to our town.

In 2016 they did not seem to have grown much bigger.

A railway station not used since the late 60s.

Our Town Hall on the right.

Extreme left my first school,

recycled into a scout hall sometime in the 1960s

 

Our hardly ever used front door on the farm.

I loved the look of palm trees

before purchasing this house.


And where my Parents and Grand Parents

ran sheep and Cattle, I now grow trees.

Tuesday Photo Challenge

Rise

~~~~~

A few puffs…

of hot air…

 

into our…

 

 balloons…

soon had us rising…

 

into to the cool morning air…

and silently sailing over Melbourne

beneath a setting moon.

 

While most of Melbourne was slept

we soared into the fresh morning air…

to admire Melbourne’s skyline

as the sun rose.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Camera-Photographers

~~~

Random shots mostly while

travelling in Europe.
However, this was a treasure I salvaged

from the tip when father-in-law downsized.

I could have taken thousands of shots

of people holding iPads

during our European trip.


 Waiting for the right moment.

 

Not sure where this was taken.

 An iPhone, or similar,

at the Trevi Fountain

 

Finally, a selfie among the new trees last week.
