Part of the ring road around Geelong.



A split second after this shot

the train vanished behind the trees…

while the road vanishes under the bridge.


Railway lines near Geelong.

While the track vanishes into the background,

I could argue that there is

a human ‘vanishing’ point

just in front of the seventh vehicle

in this shot.  🙂




Maybe in daylight the true

photography vanishing point

would be visible.

On this occasion the tracks do

vanish into the night.


Cee’s Black & White Challenge:  Vanishing-Point







Taupo Gardens…11

After walking the downtown gardens

we made our way up to the larger

Waipahihi Botanical Gardens

which overlook Lake Taupo.

These gardens are physically larger

and have a one or two kilometre

paved road on which to drive .



We sighted many examples of flowers and rhododendrons

but took only a few photos due to time constraints.

If ever in Taupo, and have an interest in gardens,

the Waipahihi Botanical Gardens

are well worth a visit.

Last week I said this week would be my last Taupo post.

I found enough photos for two more weeks.

So next week another post from

the Waipahihi Botanical Gardens,

then on to a new town or venue.

Not From the Pub Wall…

But I do have one new one to come,

hope to gather a few more in next few weeks.

In the meantime this came through on

my Facebook feed the other day,

and desperate times………


If the image is yours my apologies for

not seeking permission to use it. 

It is on my Facebook feed so

I assume everyone has seen it.
