Two similar shots taken

half a world apart.

Our Camera Club cruise on Corio Bay

in February this year presented me

with this image.

The tags on this one tell me

it was taken in

Skagway, Alaska.


A Photo a Week Challenge: Texture






rude in a mean-spirited and surly way

I think that this image depicts

two young pups…

…who think that dear old Maggie was

a bit mean spirited by not sharing

her food with them.

Funnily enough neither of them

will share their food.

Hmmm!! 🙂

deviating from what is normal or usual,

On a warm Florentine day we opted for

a cool drink and a few minutes rest.

When I ordered an iced-coffee

I was thinking of a tall large glass,

filled with icy-cold milk, some ice and ice-cream

with a hint of coffee taste.

My dreams were different to that which I received.

Refreshing but not what I would

call a normal iced coffee.

Then again visitors to Australia will also

receive an abnormal drink when

ordering an iced coffee.

When in Rome (or Florence, in this case)

do as the locals do because that is

half the fun of travelling.
