…uncommon Black Cockatoo
An old shed made from bluestone pitchers.
When constructed the Geelong Ring Road,
mostly ran through open fields.
Now thanks to urban sprawl there are houses
right up to the Geelong side (foreground) of the road
and I suppose it is only a matter of time
before housing estates commence
on the other side as well.
Dairy cows and udders.
My favourite New Zealand bridge image.

The Bridge of Sighs was the only bridge
that I wanted to get close to when in Italy.
This was the best I could do.
2020 in review
January bushfires, although a long way from us
created some spectacular sunsets.
February we attended the last large gathering for the year
when our youngest graduated from
Geelong’s Deakin University
with a Degree in Business.

our supermarket shelves bare…
…due to panic buying because of a thing called COVID 19.
Soldiering on into April saw the first of several
home delivered meals arrive at our front door.
May was almost normal minus crowded outings.
a normal way to get together.
My first sunrise outing came in June
after lockdown restrictions were eased.
By July, wInter was really upon us;
cold and gloomy mornings,
followed by cool sunny days
What better time to learn a bit more about Photoshop.
By August we were well and truly in lockdown again
and our panic buys had nearly filled a spare room.
and spring had arrived.
When were shown this scan, of our first Grandchild
and asked to wait until the twenty-week scan
until the parents made their announcement.
So in October we could talk about the news.
November found me on a day trip to Port Fairy
for some photography.
November also brought an abundance of cemetery wild flowers…
Another morning and I found myself photographing
a ship leaving Port Phillip Bay.
Early December some of the fruits of
lockdown projects in the garden.
Another December task is erecting and
decorating our Christmas tree.
And New Year’s Day it will be packed away
until next December.
