Perspective

When we first moved to Geelong, or maybe before,

we noticed this art work at the bay end of Moorabool Street.

sailing_0195

No-one we asked seemed to know if it had a name

or when it was put there,

so we coined the name

The Sharks Teeth‘.

It was not until last year that a camera club member asked

what I was talking about.

Upon explaining he burst out laughing with

I’ve heard it called a lot of things, but never sharks teeth

sailing_0196

 Apparently they represent sails or sail boats.

This all makes sense as quite often there is a small flotilla

of sailing boats on the bay all crewed by children,

and therefore, I have not taken any photos of said boats

as they are usually close enough to shore

for the crew to be identified.

We stopped in at the Troia Cafe Bar Restaurant,

in Lambeth Road London for a light snack

prior to our London Eye experience.

We did not realise Troia served mainly Middle Eastern cuisine.

We just liked the look of the place.

And there was something which catered for our hunger on the menu.

However, the decor took our eye.

Beautiful, colourful lamps hanging from the ceiling

created a second to none ambience.

Troia Cafe Bar Restaurant will be remembered,

for all the right reasons.  

Good food, friendly staff and great decor.  

Totally opposite to our farewell dinner

the previous evening, in Paris.

Construction

~~~~~

A bit early this week………time zones and all.  

It had to be very early or very late.

I was always under the impression that

cobblestones were old.

 contstruction_0174c

 My opinion has change since seeing

several construction gangs repairing streets

with new cobblestones in European cities.

 australian-flag_0018

 A slightly different slant on Construction.

It is generally accepted that a little over 200 years ago

the First Fleet arrived in Australia with its load of

‘convicted’ criminals and settlement of our country,

by Europeans, began.

These first settlers were the foundations upon which

Australia is now constructed.

Happy Australia Day,

January 26, 2017

Black and White Challenge:

Trails or Tracks.

~~~~~

My focus is on trails or tracks, if you like,

in South Africa.

tracks_0217

On a game drive we regularly passed through dry creek beds…

tracks_0010

not knowing what, or if, there was going to be any

wildlife around the next corner.

tracks_0159

Sharing a track with these magnificent animals…

tracks_0364

was well worth the fourteen hour flight to Africa.

It’s just sad to think that my last two subjects

may now be dead because they crossed

a poachers gun sight one day.

Many have asked

Weren’t you frightened/threatened by the animals?

Our answer was/is, “Never“.

It is only those who do not understand animals

have right of way and those who fail to recognise

their “get out of here” signals which all animals

demonstrate when frustrated.

After all tourists are visitors in their home and

should treat wildlife with respect

and that respect will be reciprocated.

Then they won’t eat you 😀
