I think and it has been confirmed, that…

this dress could be called a deb(utante) frock.

This flock of sheep and herd of cattle…

are certainly livestock.

The clock face of the Arras Bell Tower in France.

A group of rocks just outside Geelong

known as Dog Rocks.

Many photographers photograph this

rock formation, both day and night.

Black and White Challenge.

A variety of windows, both old and new

Looking out to the street through

the inner stain glass windows.

It was through these doors/windows

that a hail storm blew in

with hail stones landing twenty feet

inside these doors.

Views of the Swan River Bank in Perth, Western Australia.

There was a housing complex similar to this which,

we were told, belong to one family only.

Another Swan River scene.

Number 2 Son had the camera this day as we drove

around our second tree plantation.

 Same paddock a couple of weeks ago.

Only this time trees have been harvested and poisoned

in preparation for planting new tube stock.

I nearly took a selfie as our Georgian (USA) born

Plantation Manager acted as chauffeur.

Finally, this photo is tagged as God’s Window

which we visited while in South Africa.

Stunning views as is befitting such a window.

Cee-BW-Challenge-Close-Ups

~~~~~

A couple of close ups form the farm this week.

It’s a…

Toadstool.

Back in the day I spent quite a few hairy times

standing on these boards.

 Quite often there was a fair breeze

and capturing the wheel,

spinning just above one’s head was the first feat.

Above seven or eight years ago

I found the mill had blown over.

The worst part was getting anyone to fix it.

No-one would/has.

However, many people have helped themselves

to what ever they have been able to steal.

Even this mill has been dragged 20-30 feet away

from where it should be and

all those parts underground removed.

Last year I discovered a 3,000 gallon

water tank had been stolen.

And all because we no longer live there

Two of anything this week.

An African eagle and an

African Starling (I suspect) sharing a tree.

 

Two giraffes also sharing a tree.

 

Cape Buffalo

Zebras having a meeting.

A week or so ago, preening seagulls

at Geelong’s Corio Bay.

On Friday I drove up Mount Buninyong,

about a sixty minute drive inland,

and discovered there a two roads.

An up road and a down road.

From Mount Buninyong, two trees were an easy find.

So!

Have just re-read the challenge and realised

that we were supposed to post two different things.

First photo is okay, I think.

So here is Taji and her new toy.

I am told it is a Cong or is that Kong?

And a Juvenile Collared Hawk which decided to

breakfast on an annoying mudlark in

our back yard, a week or so ago.

If I had known that it would be photographed

I would have had the lawn mower out to knock over

the weeds that seem to thrive when

other grasses want water.

Cee-BW-Challenge-Any-Kind-of-Seating

~~~~~

A variety of outdoor seating.

Concrete outdoors settings

at Paronella Park in Queensland.

Apart from the romance behind its creation

 Paronella Park

was one of the destinations for

Australian and American solders

on R&R during world War 2.

Perhaps made from a recycled packing case??

 

Geelong Botanic Gardens.

 

Picnic table.

 Bench seat, Geelong Botanic Gardens.

 

Another bench seat, Geelong Botanic Gardens.

Some street art from Melbourne.

Not sure it was design as a seat but I have

seen it used as such.

The most simple and easiest seat to make.

Probably need a ten-ton crane to move it though.

Some fairly basic 50-year-old objects.

Buckingham Palace was around when I was

in primary school in the fifties.

 

Guides and research tell us the Colosseum

was completed around 1900 years ago.

The only part of my woolshed that was not ancient

was the roofing on the right side of the gable

and the skillion roof, same side.

They were both removed by the closest thing

to a tornado/hurricane to hit our farm.

And yet it was only strong enough to lift

a pile of leaves which MGW had just swept up

and dump them over the track

when it reached our house

about 100 metres further on.

I know I posted this shot last week, however,

I am fairly certain that it would have

been born before me.

My choice Cars, Motorcycles and Trucks

are all from around Geelong.Geelong Central Business District.

 

Motorcycles during a…

pedal power road race.

 

An old Indian motorbike.

Car of the future on display…

a few yeas ago in Melbourne.

The owner of this land has a few relics

on display in a corner of his property.

 

A few weeks ago I noticed that there are

several more tree trucks on this property.
