The first image is deliberately…

…left coloured to give an idea

of the clouds that day.

I think I may have overdone

the cropping and editing….



Dog Rocks, about 20 minutes out of Geelong.

A great spot for night sky shoots

if you are into that.


Cee’s Black & White Challenge:  Clouds






ludicrously futile action.

Every Labrador we have owned has

always been pestered by a Kelpie,


…Labrador’s breaking point is reached.

After a short snarl to show Kelpies

who really is the boss,

peace reigns supreme again.








*  a unit of linear measure equal to 3 feet (0.9144 metre).
*  a cylindrical spar, tapering to each end,
slung across a ship’s mast for a
sail to hang from.

Several images of our back yard….

…which has nothing to do linear measurement…



…unless we wanted to calculate the area

of our yard in square yards.

I have often heard the phrase,

When the sun came over the yard arm.


Until, today I had never quite known what it meant.

However, Google tells me that the horizontal arms

are called yards from which sails are hung.






This was a difficult challenge for me…

…because I generally don’t point my

camera at people.

I have managed to find suitable background

and bright colours…..

…along with some long range surfing brights.







Perhaps my favourite surfing shot

*  the powdery residue left after
the burning of a substance.
*  a trophy for the winner of a series
of Test matches in a cricket season
between England and Australia.


After a fire burnt our church

five years ago…

…even this cross on the roof

was little more than ashes.





A range of images to

suit the challenge.

Slate roof of our church

Corrugated iron roof of  a Fremantle church.


Rusting iron roof


Our old church after…




…it was burned.
