WWith Geelong as our shopping centre

we now only have a few kilometres drive…


…instead of fifty kilometres,

to find a seagull willing to

pose for the camera.


A lovely eye and plumage.


The centre of interest is…


…the bloke

trying to sit quietly

and enjoy his fish and chips.


One of my favorite images. 

Apart from a possible tweak to sharpen

and cropping it is SOOC. (Straight Out Of Camera)

One far away spiral one not so far away.

The Vatican’s

Spiral Staircase…

…complete with arches which could have

been used last  week 🙂


One Word Sunday Challenge:  Spiral




Aged  salt and pepper shakers.

Vintage crockery.

In my office this is one of my regularly used objects…

…as is/was this.

Was because I have a firm hold

of the bullet and trying to go paperless

from now on.

However, in my shed, these sorts of things…

…are some of my everyday objects.

Regular additions are made

to our shopping list

And these utensils are given

a regular workout every day.

MGW seems happier when playing with her…

…with her iPad and iMac than she does when…

…playing with her iRon.  🙂

Finally, when out and about, one or more

of my Nikons comes with me.

My D90 gets less work these days

than it did ten years ago.

Earlier in the year I had planned…

to be posting, by now,

fresh and new photos from

our third visit to Africa.


However, by the end of March travel

in June was extremely unlikely

and plans were postponed.



Our plan was to visit the

Transfrontier National Park 

in Southern Botswana and South Africa…




…prior to returning to…


…Kruger and Great Kruger National Parks.


At the moment we are not betting

that we will make it in 2021…

…however, we do have

many good memories…


…to keep us going until 2022

if needs be.

It also was our shopping centre

whilst  living on the farm.


Cee’s Black & White Challeng:  Feet-Human-Animal





Our first computer was

a Christmas treat in 1992.

For nearly a decade and a half I was

not game to take the sides of the box

which contained that mysterious

piece of machinery

However, during the 1990s

this simple box made it possible

for me to complete several courses

and university degrees which changed

the course of my life.


For the last fifteen years of my working life

one of my strengths was in teaching students

from five to ninety-two how to

use a computer.


These days spreadsheets, audio files,

word processing and using multiple windows

open cross multiple screens is as

easy/normal as falling off a log.
