Black and White Challenge.


Just a couple of reflections this week.

A Corio Bay seagull dips low on Corio Bay

creating a mirror image reflection.

A still, foggy morning helped create this image on Corio Bay.

I call this Follow Me.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Wk4-Topic-from-Photo


Topics from Cee’s photo…

This week

Mirror, Air Plane, & Power Lines.

A few years ago our youngest

was training other Safeway staff. 

I accompanied him on one of these training days.

As we returned to Geelong the sun was setting.

On the outskirts of Geelong taking electricity

another three hundred kilometres to power 

the Alcoa smelter at Portland,

in Victoria’s far south-west.

Last year’s Avalon Air Show. 

Avalon is an airport between Geelong and Melbourne.

I have enhanced/darkened the photo because the plane

was over 6 kilometres away on a hot February day

with the palest of pale February skies.

Goodbye Heathrow and London.





Black and White Challenge.


Benches 2

This week recycled machinery.

An old plough…

now serving (with some modifications)

as a handy bench seat.


An equally old drill/combine/seeder,

also now serving as a bench on one side, and…


a bench and picnic table on the other side.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Wk1a-Topic-from-Photo



Didn’t realise I had chosen bushes

as my topic from Week 1.

So more Victorian (BC) bushes.

 I think this is an azalea bush,

although I have never sighted one as big as this. 

They don’t like our climate. 

And if, like me, you are having difficulty

seeing the blooms they were 

past their best but still note worthy.

Visitors to Victoria BC will find this garden 

to the right of the Empress Hotel.

The Orca bush I will call this. 

Am fairly certain it is topiary…at it’s best. 

Please correct me if I’m wrong and it’s not a real plant

Week 3 Photo Topics-2


Just to keep my hand in I decided on colours

from the last challenge.

Most of these…

were found during…


our European holiday…

in 2016.



The sneakers and these pencils being the odd balls…

found at a local KMart.

Although the day was damp we had

a wonderful afternoon in colourful Murano.





Black and White Challenge.


Although Cee is still on a break

I decided to post a BW this week anyway.

Baobabs don’t grow near water…at least

not the baobabs I have photographed.

However, Photoshop does not know this fun fact.

A bona fide reflection from August 2017.
