Beginning my fountain post in Australia, with…Sydney’s, El Alamein Fountain in King’s Cross.

My favourite, so far, fountain is to be found in

Brugge’s Het Zand Square, Belgium.

These two shots are after dark shots

and I thought it truly beautiful.

Trevi Fountain in Rome was crowded,

although we were lucky to see it.

It had been closed for several years for renovations.

I think this hot could be mistaken for a sheet of steel.  However….

it is merely a close up of the water of the

Legislative Assembly Building’s fountain…

in Victoria, Canada.

A London and an…

Australian fire truck.

 

Fire hydrant.

This is not a good photo for BW,

however, it is a stubble burn,

or the aftermath of a stubble burn.

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.

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.
