FOWChallenge-Partisan

~~~~~

partisan

a strong supporter of a party (team), cause, or person (player).

On Thursday afternoon a traditional

ANZAC Day game of football will be played

at the Melbourne cricket Ground.

To say the fans will be partisan

will be an understatement.

However, they will rise as one

to observe a minute of silence,

in memory of the fallen,

before the ANZAC DAY game commences.

Fandango’s One Word Challenge:  Partisan

Rome’s Trevi Fountain

was one of the biggest disappointments

during our visit in my opinion.

I had mixed it with another Roman fountain

which I had seen in a movie or on television.

That’s right I had not done any research.

I like to see things first hand and

I feel the internet can spoil the ‘Wow’ moment.

I can say I was surprised when

we came upon Trevi Fountain.

It was surrounded by people who

were totally disconnected with other visitors

Planning, bored or discussing the photo

they had taken a few minutes earlier,

while others tried to get a clear shot.

All the ‘sitters’ were utterly disconnected

to the needs, or wants,

of their fellow tourists.

Our Mock Orange in bloom

Taken  in late April four or five years ago,

we still have one or two green oranges on our tree.

 

It may be just my eyes

but I believe there is a tinge

of orange in this daisy.

 

 

Also some orange in the sunrise.

Finally, pumpkin seeds.

Seems I missed this one last week.

Moon set from our back door.

One of my Best and favourite moon shots.

Testing my (then) new 50-500 mm Sigma lens.

This was a handheld shot with the assistance

of a veranda post for some stability.
