Cee-BW-Challenge-Wheels

~~~~~

Beginning with..

a steering wheel.

Moving on to…

harvesting machinery wheels…

 

most of which are now not much

more than scrap  metal.

Finally, one of my favourite wheel photos.

I have spent many hours dragging discs

like this one around paddocks while preparing

to sow a crop or prepare a firebreak.

Cee-BW-Challenge-Face-Like

~~~~~

I didn’t have much to contribute this week.

However…

…if your imagination rules your mind…

as mine must have been when I took this image,

I can make out a face looking at me

and just to the right a haggard like profile.

For the record this is fire.

A factory burning off waste materials.

A surprise late finding

among my pics.

Sydney’s Luna Park entrance.

Cee-BW-Challenge-Murals

~~~~~

Don’t know what happened last week. 

Honestly thought Murals was this week.

As we left Vancouver Island…

we stopped at the town of Chemainus…

to view its famous Murals.

….before catching a ferry to

the Canadian mainland.

Cee-BW-Challenge-Fences-Gates

~~~~~

Some local and African fences.

Never did like this kind of fence.

 Quick and relatively east to erect.  

Difficult to maintain.

 

Same applies to this wire netting fence.

‘Although I would love to have watched how

the tree trunk post in the ground.

Definitely hard work.

A few weeks ago…

I posted this image and told how a work colleague said

she would not visit Africa because of scenes like this.

 

I never did show her this image of

an early morning passerby

taken by the light from our tent

and only a 42 inch high fence between us.

Cee-BW-Challenge-Tender-Moments

~~~~~

From all over this week.

Not sure if this is a ‘tender moment’ or

a power play in the

Chobe National Park,

Botswana.

I choose to believe it is the former.

Mother gently reminding the family to keep up

in Geelong Wetland..

Horse and handler in Victoria,

British Columbia,

Canada.

My final tender moment at

the Port of Vancouver.

Cee-BW-Challenge-Isolated-Objects

~~~~~

From the Geelong region this week.

This horse managed to isolate itself

from it mates a chow time.

Channel markers probably dot

the shipping channels of all Bays,

however this is as close as I have

ever been to one in Corio Bay.

On January 4 this year I ventured out for a sunrise shoot

only to find that the moon was also rising.

Cee-BW-Challenge-Made-by-Humans

~~~~~

Decided to focus on Sydney this week.

Two images of…

…the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

 

And…

…two  images of the Sydney Opera House…

…taken from the Bridge.

Probably safe to say that water is the only

non man-made item in these shots.

Cee-BW-Challenge-Horns

~~~~~

None of my domestic livestock had horns to photograph.

Thank goodness for Africa.

An Impala with an impressive set.

A pair of itchy…

…Giraffe horns.

Finally this horn appears to be too heavy to carry.

Or is it just sad because it is a Zoo rhino?

Safe from poachers but still in captivity.

Cee-BW-Challenge-Construction

~~~~~

Pouring concrete for a house slab.

Not the same house but didn’t look too good.

Because this was all that was left of

the Khama Rhino Sanctuary’s amenities in Botswana

when we visited  in 2014….

All the amenities were contained….

in temporary buildings during our overnight visit.

Construction  on a new version of this temporary building

had commenced and should be completed now.

Even the street we walked in Brugge was

under construction in 2016.

Some images captured during our

eight-hour wildlife safari into

Mt Denali National Park, June 2018.

We were told this was an Osprey.

My zoom was set at 210 mm

(315mm for a 35 mm equivalent).

 

 

  Dall Sheep…the tiny white dots on the mountain.

210mm/315mm

According to McKinley lodge staff

grizzly bears were wandering to roads by the dozen,

however this was as close as we came to one.

250/375

 

 

Finally, I think this is Mount Denali.

If not my apologies.

It was a difficult eight hours and I felt

much information did not reach the back of the bus.

130mm/195mm
