Cee-BW-Challenge-In-the-Distance

~~~~~

With nearly a three hour drive ahead of me

this was…

one of my first views of the distant

Grampians, on Monday.

Taken from this perspective,

Cunningham Pier Restaurant

looks very distant behind the right most ball.

 

While Melbourne’s St Kilda Pier is longer

than Geelong’s Cunningham Pier,

the kiosk on the end of St Kilda Pier

also looks a long way off.

Commencing at our hotel in Vienna…The Imperial Riding School.

 

 A long passage to…

elevators.

The foyer of Dubai’s

Burj Al Arab…

 with its twin walk ways/escalators

either side of the fountain.

Another walk to the

Sky View Lounge

after..

an elevator ride to the top.

 

However, over in the Vatican walkers

ascend this spiral (step less)

staircase at a more sedate pace.

A Farm Related post….yeeeesssss!

 The most recent of my photos is this one

taken in March this year.

Dad’s empty hay shed.

 

Some excess rolls of hay I had one year.

 

Sheep…not mine.

 Cattle…definitely not mine.

The Master (Brandy) and The Apprentice (Zoey).

 Brandy ‘lived’  on the back of my ute and

knew exactly where the kitchen window was.

My old wool shed and farm buildings.

Not a good photo but memories of our last shearing.

Our last bales of wool to be pressed.

Lines and angles provided from Dubai’s…

Burj Khalifa…

Curved lines over straight lines.

Burj Khalifa or…

 Dubai Mall ceiling.

Finally two heavily darkened shots of

Dubai Mall Fountain.

 This was the 1 PM performance…we should have

gone to an evening performance.

Cee’s

Black and White Challenge:

Backs

~~~~~

Backs from Europe this week…

 and we saw many backs walking away

from us while touring.

I guess we made the backs

for other photographers.

And while in Florence we saw this

imitation of David…but still a back.

Entering Nice one of the first things we saw

was a tarmac full of private jets.

There were times a chair would have

been quite welcome.

I even thought cycling was better than walking.

And I guess a visit to Nice would not be complete

without a tourist shot or two of sunbathers’ backs.

Texture

~~~~~

Some texture on trees.

Two images of eucalyptus tree trunks.

This family of trees are better known as

Gum Trees in Australia.

While there is texture visible in BW  

they look much better reflecting rays from a rising sun.

 

Taken this morning, Friday, this tree was found at Barwon Heads,

a coastal town where the Barwon River empties into Bass Strait.

It shows all the attributes of a coastal tree.  

Colour or BW….there is not a lot of difference.
