Too cold for a photography outing this weekend

so I have had a look at some images

which contain people to see what I could find. 

Not sure if I noticed the couple before

or after I took the shot, however…

…from the wide angle comes a nice photo of a couple.

This photo…

…and this one…


…blended to create this image posted in

‘Capture the Moment’

for last week’s

Friendly Friday 

Similarly at Melbourne’s

Saint KIlda Pier…

…the wide angle shot cropped to focus

on the model and photographer. 

Both model and photographer were participating

in this shoot to fulfil requirements

of a course they were taking.

 

Are these two an ‘item‘?

Maybe…in this crop…

…and maybe not, the more space

they have around them.

From this crowded scene comes many stories.

One of which could be: 

The shark was this big, dead set!’

This game of badminton and its two spectators

was found….

…right here on Sydney’s

Manly Beach

FOWChallenge-Avarice

~~~~~

~~~~~

avarice

extreme greed for wealth or material gain.

During our visit to…

Schonbrunn Palace…

we were told that it was known as

the Summer Cottage…

…all 1,441 rooms of it.

The ostentatious Palace and surrounds…

 

 

…all point to an avarice family…


…demonstrating total disregard for the rest of the population.

 

 

Similarly the Palace of Versailles…

…and its surrounds…

 

…and its 2300 room Palace also demonstrates

the avarice nature of its owners were

in one of France’s harshest historical periods.

FOWChallenge-Accommodate

~~~~~

accommodate

In Bateman’s Bay and Mallacoota…

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Ribald

~~~~~

ribald

referring to sexual matters in an amusingly coarse or irreverent way.
~~~~~

I think the decor in this Viennese toilet

could be described as ribald.

Rather crude…

…coarse…

 

…and most…

 

…definitely…

 

…irreverent.

 

However, it brought a…

 

…to the face of most of those who viewed it.
