This ibis has nice curves along its beak and back

Circular Barrel ends.

 

Curves…

Curves…

…and still more curves form Rome’s Colosseum.

Finally, at Geelong’s Eastern Beach,

there is a curve in the water’s edge

which leads to corresponding curves

in the walking path and the tree line.

home

the place where one lives permanently,
especially as a member of a family
or household.
~~~~~

No matter where I have been travelling, many

international flights usually touch down

in Sydney first.

Therefore with the sighting of the

Sydney Harbour Bridge comes a feeling of home.

Sighting Melbourne’s skyline and Victorians

know they are home.

While considered fairly modest swimwear

in the 21st Century…

…it is far more revealing than swimwear

of the 1950s and beyond.

At Manly Beach…

…these girls were applying suntan oil

to exposed parts of their body.

Sun lovers on the French Riviera did not seem

to worry about protecting themselves.

One-Word-Sunday-Seasonal

~~~~~

~~~~~

seasonal

relating to or characteristic of a particular season of the year.

~~~~~

Back in September/October I would have posted

this image as seasonal.

A few years ago the camera club to which I belong

found cheap day return airfares to Sydney.

Even though the christmas season was with us

Manly’s Beach was crowded with sun lovers

trying to escape the early summer heat.

However, there is only one season…

 

…during which these ornaments are…

 

…on display in our house.

warmth

the quality, state, or sensation of being warm;
moderate heat
~~~~~

In early December 2015 I took up the offer

of a day trip to Sydney with the Camera Club.

 

Although the sun was out I didn’t think it hot.

However, this photo shows part of

the Manly Beach crowd on that weekday.

Sydneysiders obviously disagreed with me

and thought it warm enough to warrant

a splash in the  sea.

Some of Vancouver’s

Giant Laughing Statues…

A spontaneous laugh at Sydney’s

Manly Beach

 

Father after receiving his wig for his

74th birthday about ten years ago. 

That year he had been treated for breast and

at least one other type of cancer…maybe two. 

He celebrated his 86th birthday in mid-October.

Nothing like baking…

…a birthday cake.

 

 

Nothing like sunbaking those legs

to a rich shade of brown…

 

…after applying liberal quantities

of sunscreen.
