We had a good view of these fish, however…

I cannot remember what they are.

This spot provides a good view of the falls and…

a good overview of its surrounds.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Look-like-Faces

~~~

My contribution for this week’s

Things that Look like Faces

Challenge.

 

At the time of writing I have not visited any other blogs

to see what others may have posted.

I nearly gave the topic a miss until today.

faces_0218

As I drove past an oil refinery near Geelong I noticed

that some of the outer covering on a large container

had fallen off leaving what I thought

were several face like, profiles…

if you use your imagination.faces_0217

This looked better from one hundred metres

than it does here.

fire_faces_0223a

Nearby was one of those chimney fires burning waste product.

I’m sure there are two arms and

an angry head popping up and waving me away.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Flying

~~~

My contribution for this week’s

Flying

 

All photos related to flying this week.shadow_0411

We are definitely airborne as our shadow shows

at Maun Airport, in Botswana.

We spent the next hour flying over the Okavango Delta.

Would love to return.

victoria-falls_0136

At Victoria Falls it was an optional extra to

climb aboard the helicopter to get this shot.

flying_0016

Not a very good shot of a helicopter over Corio Bay.

plane_1866

No need to ring 000 or 911, this is garden art near Geelong.

Have often suggested that we have one in our front yard,

but hardly get the words out before

a resounding ‘No!‘ is heard. 😀

flying_0214

Finally, this ‘shot from the hip, which turned out

much better than it should  have.

This helicopter was relaying the Cadel Evans Bike Race

back to a television studio which then

broadcast the images to a world-wide audience, so I was told.

Google tells me it was broadcast to these countries.

Britain, Eurosport Player (online), Africa (Live),

Belgium (L), Portugal (L), Japan, France,

Turkey and Eurosport Asia.

My contribution for this week’s

Inner and Outer

 

Outside Shonnbrunn Palace looking in.

However, even when through the gates we are…

schonbrunn_palace_0006

still on the outer.

schonbrunn_palace_0027

I have a feeling we were told not to take photos

after I took this shot.

I had doubts about posting it but found

many others on Pinterest and other blogs.

So here is my only shot of the inner sanctum of

Schonbrunn Palace.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Good-Bad

~~~

My contribution for this week’s

Good and Bad

 

Upon arriving in Rome the first thing we

did was go on a walking tour.

trevi_fountain_0186a

down bustling CROWDED streets.

trevi_fountain_0191a

For some reason I had a totally different concept of

the Trevi Fountain, and it took some time

before the Wow! hit me :-).

trevi_fountain_0200a

A fascinating piece of work, and…

trevi_fountain_0210a

a place to spend lots of time.

trevi_fountain_0227a

If only all those tourists…

trevi_fountain_0199awould go to the Colosseum.

Anywhere to leave some room for us. 🙂

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Big-and-Small

~~~

My contribution for this week’s

Big and Small

 

I marveled at this sight a few years ago…

sunrise_corio_bay_6964

as I had never seen tugs at work before…or since.

 sunrise_corio_bay_6965The size difference is noticeable here, however…

sunrise_corio_bay_6987

only for the puff of smoke from its smoke stack,

our little tug would be lost, in this shot.

sunrise_corio_bay_6999

 A better size comparison here.
