Not sure whether to call this the Yacht Club, the Marina,

or play it safe and refer to the

Black and White Tuesday

 February 21, 2017

~~~~~

After our coldest February day in twelve years

on Sunday…

ferris-wheel_geelong_0225

it was a good excuse to run some

early morning errands, with camera in hand.

After a gloomy Sunday, Monday’s sunrise

was a non-event due to cloud cover.

However when the sun did break through it lit up some…

Cee’s

Black and White Challenge:

Perspective

~~~~~

When we first moved to Geelong, or maybe before,

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

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.

Weekly Photo Challenge-Against-The-Odds

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Against The Odds

~~~~~

On Valentines Day were asked to “double date’

(as MGW told her teenage girls at work) with

No. 1 Son and his Girlfriend.

Girlfriend said she had not had fish and chips

since arriving in Australia.

The venue was to be our place until Girlfriend decided

that fish and chips had to be eaten outdoors.

Girlfriend loves Geelong’s foreshore and that was the venue.

I thought we may have had a few seagulls for company, but…

when this sparrow alighted on our table and tried desperately

to pull a whole chip out of my hand, I knew

there was an unexpected photo opportunity

if I had my camera at the ready.

Not content with a chip, sparrow returned several times

to sample Girlfriend’s banana cake.

Sparrow and I both agreed that Girlfriend needs

more practise baking cakes and that we will be her taste testers 😀

Even though it was a bit chilly…

we have had a cool summer so far…

we all had an enjoyable evening out.

Floral Friday Challenge.

~~~~~

On  Tuesday, Valentines Day, I drove to Ballarat

to photograph some of its old architecture.

_dsc4667

I was somewhat side-tracked by its begonias

being readied for ANZAC Day and the well known

Ballarat Begonia Festival.

_dsc4671

I was just in time to see them being fed and chat to the gardener…

_dsc4675

 who told me that he always plants red in this bed

for ANZAC Day, April 25.

_dsc4712

Some beds were nearly down to foliage only….

however, there was a splash or two of colour

to brighten the scene.

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.
