Daily Prompt-Premature

~~~~~

Waayyy back around 1970…My cousin and I were supporting opposite sides

in what is now known as the

Australian Football League’s

Grand Final.

A 10 cent wager was placed.

At half time my team was 10 goals in front and

I prematurely asked my cousin did she want to pay up.

She declined.

And it is now history that Collingwood (my team)

had their worst ever case of the “Colliewobbles”

and lost another Grand Final.

And I have never had a wager on football since.

Beginning with sunshine…

going…

 

and coming to start a new day.

 

 

The Q Train shining its light into the darkness ahead…

The Q Train as the engine swaps ends and joins up

to take us back to the beginning of our journey.

The Q Train is a Dining train which operates

on a section of track,

no longer used for public transport,

between Drysdale and Queenscliff.

 

 

Last Friday, May 11, just before sun up at the car park…

 

at Geelong’s Eastern Beach.

Rise

~~~~~

A few puffs…

of hot air…

 

into our…

 

 balloons…

soon had us rising…

 

into to the cool morning air…

and silently sailing over Melbourne

beneath a setting moon.

 

While most of Melbourne was slept

we soared into the fresh morning air…

to admire Melbourne’s skyline

as the sun rose.

A variety of outdoor seating.

Concrete outdoors settings

at Paronella Park in Queensland.

Apart from the romance behind its creation

 Paronella Park

was one of the destinations for

Australian and American solders

on R&R during world War 2.

Perhaps made from a recycled packing case??

 

Geelong Botanic Gardens.

 

Picnic table.

 Bench seat, Geelong Botanic Gardens.

 

Another bench seat, Geelong Botanic Gardens.

Some street art from Melbourne.

Not sure it was design as a seat but I have

seen it used as such.

The most simple and easiest seat to make.

Probably need a ten-ton crane to move it though.

One Word Photo Challenge-Panorama

~~~~~

Perhaps not a true panorama shot of Melbourne’s skyline…

 but my guess is that it could be described as ‘panoramic.’

After consulting the expert…Google…

I am confident that it is

a panorama and panoramic.

THURSDAY’S SPECIAL-Way

 

 

Way

While searching for this week’s post…

I found this sight-seeing bus…a way

for visitors to see Melbourne.

York’s signpost pointed the way to

various point in the city…

as did these signs on a

Freeway/Autobahn in Germany.

While visiting Fromelles we had to walk down this path…

to see the site of the Fromelles mass graves

which were recently exhumed and created

the Fromelles Military Cemetery.

 

Finally, this is the way to the

Toronto Avenue Military Cemetery

in Belgium.
