One Word Photo Challenge-Pool

~~~~~

Tried for some variety…

A small prize pool.

The temporary swimming pool we had

after three inches of rain

in the summer of 2005.

The pool is our garage.

And if you visit Cairns you should swim in this pool…

which, if viewed carefully appears to have no sea wall.

On our only visit to Cairns I wandered

down to the beach wondering why

no-one else was there. 

I walked out to ankle depth and upon returning

to the sand spotted a

don’t swim because crocodiles frequent this beach

sign. 

Needless to say I heeded the sign thereafter.

Cee’s

Black and White Challenge.

Beginning my fountain post in Australia, with…Sydney’s, El Alamein Fountain in King’s Cross.

My favourite, so far, fountain is to be found in

Brugge’s Het Zand Square, Belgium.

These two shots are after dark shots

and I thought it truly beautiful.

Trevi Fountain in Rome was crowded,

although we were lucky to see it.

It had been closed for several years for renovations.

I think this hot could be mistaken for a sheet of steel.  However….

it is merely a close up of the water of the

Legislative Assembly Building’s fountain…

in Victoria, Canada.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Wk1-Topic-from-Photo

~~~

Windows, Bushes, Bricks

I chose some bushy photos for my topic this week

We were visiting Vancouver’s,

Stanley Park.

These sights appealed to me.

The last thing I expected to find atop

Vancouver’s Grouse Mountain

was a neatly cut a stacked wood heap….

A by-product of the lumberjack show I suspect.

THURSDAY’S SPECIAL-July-Words-Yr3

~~~~~

 

Glacier is my word for this post.

One of the definitions found for canicular was

‘…a period of inactivity…’

This Husky puppy, on Mendenhall Glacier,

was quite content to have

a period of inactivity

after a five-minute playtime with tourists.


Margerie Glacier in a calving moment.

The size of the splash can be contextualised

when compared to these vessels.

 

After a few passes this feathered friend decided…

 

to hitch a ride while it caught its breath.

Not a very good photo but included as my marine photo

as it was my only otter sighting.

 

While there were plenty of guests for whom this would

have had a ‘Ho! Hum!‘ factor,

for our group of Aussies this was

a day to be described as scenic.
