Phoneography-Foggy_Monday

My Phoneography.

~~~~~

As previously stated I do not use a non SLR camera very often

and only occasionally have non SLR photos to post.  

Today some HTC phone camera shots

~~~~~

With sunshine and twenty degree temperatures forecast for today I had high hopes of painting verandah posts today.  However…

fog_0270

at ten AM a heavy fog was still covering parts of Geelong and surrounding areas.  In the background is part of the Geelong Cement works.

fog_0272As I neared the cement works the fog appeared to clear, slightly.  However, it was also apparent that there was still some time to go before it could be said that the fog had lifted.  With fog this heavy painting was on hold for several hours.

Phoneography-Perth Bell Tower

My Phoneography contribution for several weeks.

~~~~~

We spent a few days in Perth after returning from South Africa.  

We were told one of the ‘must sees’ was  the Perth Bell Tower

~~~~~

BellTower_0236BW

I featured the Bell Tower in Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge a week or so ago.

~~~~~

Sign_0199BW

The Tower houses the oldest bell in Australia which once rang out from the Upton Grey church in Hampshire, according the above information.

~~~~~

BELL_0198BW

We were lucky enough to arrive shortly before the bells began to peal and had some time to explore the tower and view the bells as they tolled 🙂

Unfortunately I cannot upload video to my blog.

The Bell Tower is well worth a visit while in Perth.

Phoneography-Football Finals

My Phoneography contribution complements my

Look Up, Look  Down Challenge

this week.

~~~~~

All these photos, while taken with my HTC phone are looking down onto the playing field of the Melbourne Cricket ground (MCG) or, in one case, looking up.

~~~~~

September is a big month in Australia, particularly Melbourne, the centre of the Australian Football League (formerly the Victorian Football League) as all finals games are played during September to decide the champion team for the season.

~~~~~

MCG-Friday_0144

Many years ago all these games were played on Saturday afternoons, however, with the advent of the Australian Football League (AFL) and more direct televising of these games, the higher rating night games are more the norm these days.  I would much rather a day game, however, the team I have followed for years is one of the stronger teams and draws a bigger ratings crowd.

~~~~~MCG-Friday_0147

These two photos were taken about half an hour before the first bounce (start of the game) at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) on Friday September, 7th.  The MCG is where the 2006 Commonwealth Games and 1956 Olympic games were held.

The Dark section of the grand stand is the Melbourne Cricket Club Members grandstand.  There is a waiting list of 25-30 years to become a member.

These photos are taken from the Great Southern Stand where AFL Members watch sporting events to which they are entitled entry.

~~~~~

MCG-Friday_0148

All the above shots were taken on the first night of finals with the banner indicating that one of the teams is about to run onto the ground.

Fortunately I only attended this game to watch a good game. However, just prior to arriving I had a nagging thought that I had left my car unlocked at a railway station car park, so I left early… only to find that the car was very securely locked!!

~~~~~

MCG-Saturday_0153

The only good thing about returning on Saturday night was my Look Up and capturing this scene.

~~~~~

MCG-Saturday_0164

A crowd of around 50,000 watched as my team, Collingwood, were soundly beaten.  At least I don’t have a reason to drag myself over to night games any more this season.

Phoneography-Fog

These are four photographs taken with my HTC phone. Taken the same time (few seconds apart), same day, same place.

There has been no colour correcting applied to any of these photos.

So does anyone have an explanation for the odd one?

Phoneography – Family Outing

Most regular readers have met Ginger, my black and tan kelpie.

One detail I have not revealed is that Ginger loves to ride on the back of my ute.

image

As we had planned a Sunday afternoon trip to the hardware store,
we decided Ginger could come with us…

~~~~~

image

…she alternates between looking around the cabin and barking at passing traffic…

~~~~~

image

…and looking thorough the rear window…and barking at passing traffic!

~~~~~

imageAs is often the case we planned a cup of coffee as part of our outing.

~~~~~

image

Even though Ginger begged me she knew she had to remain tied up, but I promised to bring her something for her morning tea.

~~~~~

image

And I remained true to my word…minus the onions.

~~~~~

image

Ginger eagerly devoured her morning tea!

This ‘gap filler’ combined with a barbeque sausage for lunch when we left the hardware store made for an enjoyable trip.

~~~~~

image

Ginger had plenty of stories to tell Maggie and Soxie when we arrived home.

However, Maggie had a firm wooden bottom under her new mattress and all is now supported by the metal bands newly added to her bed, to support her 35 kilograms.

~~~~~

Next time I will make sure my rear window is cleaner
and thanks to
MGW for her Phoneography.

~~~~~

My Phoneography is limited as I do not use my phone a great deal. Secondly, I am off to work in an hour or so (Monday morning) and it is only approaching three-thirty Sunday afternoon in central USA.

You Yangs

Phoneography Monday.

Two views of the You Yang Ranges.

~~~~~

Below: Friday afternoon, June, 21, 2013.

You-Yangs_0057A

Although the cloud formations resemble those seen on a mild summer day. Perhaps the colour, of the You Yangs, is telling me that by late afternoon the weather will become cold and damp very quickly.

~~~~~

You Yangs_1872

The colour of the You Yangs mentioned above, and in my previous post, was probably forecasting this 10.30 AM view the following morning.

The only thing I was sure of was that I was at the same spot, facing the same direction…..to the best of my knowledge.

The small rise, clearly visible in the top shot, can just be made out in the foggy scene, just above the barbed wire.
