A variety of drinks.Hot and cold drinks abroad The Q Train for

our Wedding anniversary earlier in the year.

I suspect a French breakfast at an Ibis Hotel…last year.

A warm day in Nice called for a cold drink.

 A Sunday morning coffee break was called for…

around 10 AM.

Even though it was raining this  drink was gratefully accepted.

I shall commence with probably the most unusal tables.A wool table…right foreground. 

No shearing taking place at this time.

Tables of any king was the brief????

Wool bales were often pushed on their side

so they could be used as a table or chair.

The thing which frustrated me most about this practice

was that the user never stood the bale upright after pushing it over.

 

Outdoor cafe seating in Arras, France.

 

If you can accept outdoor benches as chairs…

then we have some of Geelong’s

parklands and their tables and chairs.

Seating along

Promenade des Anglais

in Nice, France.

 

An eight seater, turn of thee century,

solid Tasmanian Blackwood dining table and chairs.

Belonging to MGW’s parents

and valued at $AUD 7000-$AUD 8000 restored, or

$AUD 1,500 – $AUD 1,700 as is.

And no-one showed any interest in it.  😦

 

The first or one of the few memorials to the Nurses

involved in the Great War.

It can be found at

Lochnagar Crater,

Somme Battlefields

For a few hundred metres we hard been trying

 to work out what he object in the water was…

a couple of shots through the window

just had to contain a jogger.

*****

These shots in the

‘I never thought I would be able to use them’

file.

Often when I am just setting up my tripod

or attaching my camera walkers or joggers stop,

until I give them the nod to continue, or they go behind me.

Then there are moments like this

when the camera is loaded and clicking away….

Some random plastics.

Plastic chair along the beachfront at Nice, France.

 

 

The front of many cars are now plastic.

This is a 3,ooo GALLON (13,638 litres) plastic tank I purchased

around the year 2000 because the concrete one along side had severe cracks in it.

I don’t get back to the farm more than once or twice per year.

About twelve months ago I returned to find my tank missing.

And like on many police related movies/TV shows I have suspicions but no proof.

On this chilly Victorian winter Sunday

my thoughts took me…

to a sunny September day, in 2016, on… 

and around Lake Lucerne.

 

A few days later we were strolling along

Nice’s Promenade des Anglais…

 

where many were enjoying

a lazy day in the sun.

Last two images are two sections of one larger photo.
