Cee-BW-Challenge-Open-Topic

~~~~~

For the Open Topic I have chosen to post

photos taken in 2018,

commencing with the furthermost object…

the Moon.

A bridge, forming pat of Geelong’s Ring Road,

and although it appears fairly close…

 

it is just part of the back ground in this shot.

 

Sunrise from our front yard.

 Galahs.

Visitors to our backyard.

Galah is also a term bestowed upon someone

who has done something silly.

As in

‘…you galah…’

‘…you flaming galah…’

‘…you’re a galah…’

Click here for the Google search results.

Galah can be used in a derrogatory, or friendly, sense.

THURSDAY’S SPECIAL-Message

 

 

When I think of sending a message to someone these days I generally turn Facebook’s Messenger.

I have no idea who Dave is, but we can

message/talk to each other before agreeing,

or disagreeing, on a sale price.

No more hand written notes!

Thursday’s Special: Message

Weekly-Weather-Sun-Shower

 

On January 9, I posted this photo of

the moon and its halo which has been

known to be an indicator of rain.

On Friday January 12, rain began to fall.

Slow rain.

Steady rain.

The garden heaved a sigh of relief.

Overnight we received

8.5 millimetres/30 points,

of rain.

This morning  the rain has continued

in showers through to mid afternoon.

Not much sun but we have had showers

similar to this one in early October.

Weekly Photo Challenge-Silence

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Silence

~~~~~

Last April we took a hot air balloon ride

over Melbourne.The only downside was the 0330 wake up call

to find out if winds were slight enough

to allow the ride to go ahead.

I have never seen Melbourne streets as silent

as this one was at that hour.

 

 Even though there around twenty passengers,

conversations were conducted in

subdued tones so as not to break the silence

of the early hour.

At lift off, there was only the roar of the gas flame

to break the silence of the crisp April morning.

Even this Qantas 747 could not break the silence…

 as we flew over Melbourne at dawn…

with just the occasional burst of

flaming gas breaking the silence.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Letter-V

~~~

My contribution for

this week’s challenge

Letter-V

(Needs to start with V…contain at least 6 letters)

Monaco during our 2016 holiday/Vacation

Part of the Moorabool Valley near Geelong.

 

 

Most buildings in Amsterdam are Vertical, however,

some do lean like the Tower of Pisa.

 

Even from an altitude of 40,000 feet it is difficult

to appreciate the Vastness of the Antarctic ice pack.

I always The Creation of Adam would dominate

the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican City.

  However it was swallowed up by surrounding panels.

According to Wikipedia it is substantial

9 ft 2 in × 18 ft 8 inches, it is so far above

one’s head it seems you could

hold it in your hands.

Daily Prompt-Entertain

~~~~~

Entertainers.

 The aged entertain the young in Melbourne.

 

A young girl briefly entertains tourists

in Brugge.

 

Finally, Melbourne’s living statue.

Not sure if this is the easiest, or the hardest,

of all three entertainers.
