Weekly Photo Challenge-Silence



My contribution for this week’s challenge…



Last April we took a hot air balloon ride

over Melbourne.The only downside was the 0330 wake up call

to find out if winds were slight enough

to allow the ride to go ahead.

I have never seen Melbourne streets as silent

as this one was at that hour.


 Even though there around twenty passengers,

conversations were conducted in

subdued tones so as not to break the silence

of the early hour.

At lift off, there was only the roar of the gas flame

to break the silence of the crisp April morning.

Even this Qantas 747 could not break the silence…

 as we flew over Melbourne at dawn…

with just the occasional burst of

flaming gas breaking the silence.




Daily Prompt-Entertain



 The aged entertain the young in Melbourne.


A young girl briefly entertains tourists

in Brugge.


Finally, Melbourne’s living statue.

Not sure if this is the easiest, or the hardest,

of all three entertainers.

This shot is looking in the

opposite direction to the first.

I was playing around with my

newly acquired ND filter that morning.


A Photo a Week Challenge: Blue-Skies




This post is late because I had no idea what to post…

until I had to photograph one of MGW’s rings,

which I gave MGW on our

twenty-second wedding anniversary. Supposed to be diamonds

(although hard to see any in this shot)

and pink rubies.

It was damaged a few years ago.

Since then we have paid good money

to have it repaired…twice.

The second time we were told to take it to the

manufacturer, whoever that maybe,

if it needed repair again.

 If it has been repaired I have to ask myself

why does this part of the ring appear to be broken?

No wonder the stones fall out without notice.

This is one time I  really do feel I have

been ripped off…and have proof of it.
