I happened to spot this harpist

setting up in Brugge.

What appeared to be tourists

were being lead her way.

Five minutes later not a sign of her.

Must be the shortest practice/busking

session ever.


I know I posted this image last week,

however, looking at again I could not help

but wonder if this bloke could practice

his pick up technique a bit more?


Even Lucerne’s famous Chapel Bridge,

which crosses the Reuss River is an ideal place

to hone one’s skills and perhaps glean

a few tourist dollars/euros in the process.

A Bourke Street, Melbourne, busker


What a way to practice one’s

Twister skills and…


…pay a bill or two at the same time.

I love this image.

The very young appreciating

the older generation’s skills.

Something not seen or heard very often

these days….unfortunately.

I have used nature to provide me with

some brightness this week.

Amazing how bright an area look with

some yellow or other bright colour…

…popping among the greenery.



This yellow and purple combination

was captured at  Denali in Alaska.

The above image (marigolds?)

is from Juneau in Alaska.

Geelong grown Dahlias…

…and way past its best a home grown anemone.

Finally, nothing could be much brighter than

our very own starr as it lights up

a lone catamaran

on Corio Bay.


One Word Sunday Challenge:  Bright



During the past year or so I have been

playing around entering photos in

challenges on

So, for this weekend’s challenge

I am posting some of the images

which have been voted into the

Top 10% of a challenge.

The first three have all received enough votes

in a challenge to see them finish in

the top 10% of their challenge.

All images have also had multiple…

…Top 20% and Top 30% achievements

in other challenges.

While this Griffin Gully Pier photo

has achieved the highest number

of votes of all of my photos achieving

three Top 100 rankings and

Multiple Top 20% and Top 30% finishes

it has never finished in the Top 10%.

Should anyone be interested in
