FOWChallenge-Umbrage

~~~~~

umbrage

offence or annoyance.

“she took umbrage at his remarks”

Maggie quite readily took umbrage…
at any strangers silly enough to wander

through our backyard.

  

Taji, also noisily tells all intruders where to go.

 However, she doesn’t mind wandering

into our neighbour’s yard

but makes a lot of noise if

one of their dogs comes into our yard.

Bicycles and Motorcycles

We first noticed the high usage of bicycles in Brugge.    

While in Amsterdam the bicycle flat

provides free parking for 2,500 bicycles.

The Cadel Evans January Road Race in Geelong’s suburbs.

The Peloton.

Motorcycles and shouldered television cameras

beaming the action to the world.

Riders look relaxed but are travelling

at a phenomenal speed.

A few weeks ago, in the wee hours of the morning

we were awoken by the sound of barking dogs

and powerful lights torch flashing in our window.

This was followed by red and blue flashing lights

circling our block every five minutes or so.

Still not one hundred percent sure what was going on

except that someone was where they shouldn’t have been

at that hour of the day.

 ~~~~~~

Hope you enjoyed.

FOWChallenge-Formidable

~~~~~

formidable
adjective
inspiring fear or respect through being impressively large,
powerful, intense, or capable.

Last night (Sunday) I went for an after hours drive… 

To capture some images of what I think is

a formidable display of Christmas lights.

 It is a large front yard and it is covered again

this year with Christmas lights and somewhere

in the darkness is a hi-fi system pumping out

Christmas carols

Black and White Challenge:

Motors

~~~~~

Due to a lack of motor/engine photos,

I opted for the definition of motor which refers to motor cars.

Beginning with a Oldsmobile. 

Haven’t a clue really, but the number plates read MYOLDZ, so….

Not a car specialist so appreciate any errors corrected please.

A Buick if I have read the badge correctly.

A Chevvie.

This one, as are all to follow, is an

Australian made Holden

from the early to mid sixties.

An early Commodore introduced in 1978.

The mid-sized 4 cylinder Commodore was not a huge success,

from memory, in Australia

My second car.

A LH 1975 Torana.

Finally, my current ride.

The SV6 version of the VF Commodore

The last of the Australian made Commodores.   

Because some of these vehicles look much better in colour

they will also feature in my Wordless Wednesday post,

scheduled for one hour after this post.
