Black and White Tuesday

~~~~~


I have been wanting to visit Torquay again

for some time now.

With six-foot waves forecast today seemed to be ideal.

 

 

Just shows how much I know about surfing.

 

 The waves were there, however it was too windy,

 

and only a few brave souls took to the water.

And my ageing eyes found it difficult to see them

in the water such was their distance from shore.

This week we are a short drive from Geelong.

 The view from the Steiglitz Courthouse.

This seat supported me however

I did test it before sitting on it.

Not the greatest photo but I have never seen

this railway bridge before.

Back in Australia for this week’s offering.

Corio Bay’s Yacht Club Marina.

 

From one of my favourite drive down through…

the Otway Ranges, near Beech Forest, to be precise.

 

And to finish with some more from Geelong’s…

Corio Bay.

Some weekend images from…

the City of Sails.

Auckland, N.Z.

I’m not exactly sure what part of Auckland,

except to say that we were perched upon…

many of the volcanic craters situated in Auckland

which provided good view of all the sails

out on Saturday morning.

Some Corio Bay BWs…

 A BW version of this week’s

Pic-and-Word-Challenge-Blemish

 My second photo this week with…

 variations to follow.

 

I  inverted the colours and kind of like the result.

Experimenting with a

Neural Density filter this morning.

Geelong’s Eastern Beach.

Walkers were beginning to fill the path

as I left this morning.

 

Geelong Yacht Club Marina.

 

My favourite spot for photos on the

western side of Corio Bay.

Back to nature.

I believe these to be…

Eucalyptus Leucoxylon flowers…

and seed pods.

 

 

 

Some sunset shots

My graphics card is faulty at the moment and

everything looks very blurry at times.

When I converted this to BW I noticed a shadow

all around the tree making it appear

to have been a studio shot…

or at least against a wall.

 The coloured version was no better.

This was how I framed this shot it is not a crop.

 Even the wide shot has a shadow.

 At least on my computer it does.

As mentioned the graphics card….

P.S…10/02/2018…after mentioning a malfunctioning

graphics card…when preparing this post

nearly 24 hours ago…

this morning it is having a good day.

None of the aforementioned distortions.

Three images of our sprinkler watering

the lawn a week or two ago.

Apart from a mouse click or two… using pencil sketch tool…

using pencil sketch tool, converting to BW,

and darkening where necessary,

these are bona fide water photos.

I think some of the textures are interesting.

Particularly the blobs of water

around the top sides of image number 2.

For those of us more inclined to view a photo

as it appears, a sepia of part of our garden

taken the same morning.
