Odd Ball

Week 13, 2017

~~~~~

In my view these a creepy photos, however,

I am sure there are those who will disagree.

Not the greatest photo but it gives an idea

of what ‘getting ready for lunch’ means.

A wrapped meal.

Morning sun has made these images…

in my opinion.

Black and White Tuesday

 March 21, 2017

~~~~~

 

Monday was the best surf at Torquay for some time.

Still only relatively small waves, however,

there were some good rides.

Furthermore, I had never seen a surfer using a paddle before.

Or is that a paddle boarder, surfing.

It seemed to aid with balance at times.

I like this shot with the water splashed up around his knees.

I think here is a whole range of captions

which could be applied here.

Definitely my favourite for the day.

One Word Photo Challenge-Family

~~~~~

Family.

A few months ago MGW came rushing in exclaiming

we were grandparents.

This came as quite a shock to me as neither of our offspring,

or partners, are in the breeding way…yet.

It made a lot more sense when it was explained that

we had some additions to the two goldfish in our little pond.

Odd Ball

Week 12, 2017

~~~~~

Last Wednesday I planned a drive to

The Twelve Apostles…

to capture a sunset shot.

Well before sunset I decided to drive to a

nearby town to grab a snack to tide me over.

As I was reversing out of my car park another car reversed out

hit me and left me with what appeared to be

a scratch on my rear bumper.

Since talking to panel repair shops that $100 or $200

repaint has grown to $1200 to $1500 for parts

as ‘the experts’ have said I need a new two part bumper

which will cost that much.

Plus whatever damage may be on the inside of the bumper.

After seeing another car reverse out the same,

and wrong, way, I did not stick around for sunset.

One Word Photo Challenge-Fairy

~~~~~

Fairy.

I was not sure what to use as a subject this week, until…

Fairy Penguins came to mind, however…

now, to be politically correct, they are known as Little Penguins.

 And then of course there is Port Fairy, where I used to

holiday with family and friends many decades ago.

Port Fairy is a fishing/tourist town and was named

by the crew of the whaler The Fairy in 1828.

In 1835 a whaling station was established

followed by a store in 1839.

Fishing boats still use the Moyne River as their

port of refuge from Bass Strait’s wild weather

and it was in the upper reaches of the Moyne

that I spent many hours swimming

before a swimming pool was constructed

in my home town in about 1966/67.

More history of Port Fairy can be found here.
