a circular object that revolves on an axle and is fixed below
a vehicle or other object to enable it to move
easily over the ground.

Not all wheels are designed to travel over ground,

Some simply turn and remain stationary.


This set of wheels was certainly designed

to move easily along roads.

This sighting took place in Perth

Western Australia.

Wheels from another era altogether.

This message is sighted as you board the ferry

to cross the crocodile-infested Daintree River.

The deck was only about 2 feet above water level.

If you had seen some of these huge monsters

basking in the sun, there must be some silly people

in the world, of which I am one.

On my first night in Cairns, I wandered down to the beach,

noted that there was no one else in the water,

then walked into ankle-deep water for a minute or two.

I passed the

crocodiles; no swimming

warning as I was leaving.

The sign was strategically placed facing the water.

Technically I did not swim, however rest assured

I did not enter tropical water again.


According to Google, Rottnest Island is 33.1 kilometres

west of Perth in the Indian Ocean.


After seeing rhinos in the wild and

up close at Botswana’s,

Khama Rhino Sanctuary,

I thoouught that perhaps 100 metres

should have been the safe distance.

The message is; it’s painless

I did not find out if it was true.


An exercise completed by some

of Geelong’s disengaged youth

a few years ago.

The church still stands on Geelong’s Moorabool Street.

Alas, I think the tree is no longer and the church

is surrounded by used cars.

Crooked buildings in Amsterdam

The old and the new in Perth,

Western Australia


Geelong locals call this the

Upside Down Building

An apt name for a government building

don’t you think?

Geelong’s new library under construction…

..now it has a fully domed roof.

While cruising the Swan River (Perth-Fremantle)

we were shown large, expensive properties

built on the river’s banks.

My next photos are known as God’s Window.

Located a short drive from

Mount Sheba Resort…

…in South Africa’s, Blyde River Canyon,

the views are spectacular

totally befitting a view through

God’s Windows.

If ever you are going to visit New Zealand’s

Hobbit Movie Set at Matamata,

be sure to consider

Bucklands Air BnB.

Only a five-minute drive and you are

in a world of Hobbits.

The image above is taken through

the window of Bucklands BnB.






Probably not a small building,

but certainly not the largest either.

Small front buildings.

A house boat.

Definitely a small house.


Maybe the tiniest house in Amsterdam.

I often state that size is relative.

This church would have been rather large when built,

however, now dwarfed by its neighbours
