Black and White Tuesday

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.

I tired my hand at photographing

some roadside grass this week.

In another life I would call these grasses weeds!

But in this forum…they are subjects!

Right?

I was sorely tempted to crop just the centre of this one and

call it Roadside Blue Poles after we (Australia)

paid a world record price of $1.3 million

for a piece of art in 1973.

It was a case of love it, or hate it.

There was no in between!

According to Google it is now worth $350 million.

Just shows how much I know about art! 🙂

Feel like morning exercises?

Would you exercise like a Labrador?

Or would you exercise like a…

kelpie and really stretch those muscles?

 The last posting day for February.

Only 300 days till Christmas. 

Some random  photos from last week.

My guess is some early to mid teenagers

learning the skills of rowing.

barwon_river_rowers_0193

Why do I say that?

The bloke in the prow was not doing much rowing

but a lot of talking/coaching.

 I think this is better in colour.

Dark sky and sun reflecting off green leaves and white limbs.

After our coldest February day in twelve years

on Sunday…

it was a good excuse to run some

early morning errands, with camera in hand.

After a gloomy Sunday, Monday’s sunrise

was a non-event due to cloud cover.

However when the sun did break through it lit up some…

Although not much surf around last Friday…

there were more surfers than usual.

At least when I have visited.

Most surfers were getting a…

decent ride when they caught a wave, small as they were.

Even found some decent subject matter closer

to me and not moving  as much…

which does, I think look better in colour.

Oh! Well!
