Cee’s Odd Ball Challenge-17Wk34-2108


Odd Ball

Week 34, 2017


Not an Odd Ball photo this week, more an oddity which seems to be on the increase on our internet.

Over recent weeks I have been posting items

for sale for my Father-in-law.

He is downsizing.

One such item was this hand painted vase.

Below is the advertisement I posted on Facebook after researching how old ‘Vintage’ items should be to be called ‘vintage’

August 12 at 11:08am

Vintage Hand Painted Vase
Asking $40.00 O.N.O
Approx 10 cm high
Excellent condition
The 1978 image was found inside the top
Definitely a New Vintage (20+ years) piece, and well on the way to being a True Vintage (50+ years) item……based on the 1978 date.

Deceased estate and downsizing, no further use.
Local pick up only at…….


And this is a comment I received:

You need a new calculator as its only 39 years young not more than 50 as you’ve stated! 2017- 1978 = 39.


This is the Facebook work history and education of that person.

Personally, I think

Literacy and Customer/Public Relations courses

should be next on the agenda, me thinks.

Do you have these situations arise in your area?

Black and White Challenge:

Small Subjects


I always think of the words

relative and subjective

when considering this topic

An Agapanthus flower consists of

many smaller flowers creating one large bloom,

which in turn makes the bee look small.

Looking a little closer and the anthers

make the bee look huge, by comparison.

Floral Friday17-1808


Floral Friday Challenge.


It that time of the year again.

Bulbs are in flower and our erlicheer Jonquils

have been out in force for sometime now,

heralding spring is just around the corner.



Another horticultural link with the farm.

We inherited a small parch of snowflakes

and brought them with us.

Whether timing  or climate I am not sure,

however they have put on a display this year.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Letters-AP


My contribution for

this week’s challenge

Beginning with Letters-AP


Words beginning with Ap…

This gorilla is a member of the Ape family,

and also a member of the Melbourne Zoo family.


Fifty or sixty years ago these were known as ‘flats’.  

One or two bedrooms for small family or singles.


These days they are known as ‘units’.

Could they also be called apartments,

or are they too small?


Finally looking down the aperture, or trying to see it,

of my Nikkor 70-300 zoom lens.


Weekly Photo Challenge-Shiny



My contribution for this week’s challenge…



Whether in…York…

at Harry Potter’s Platform…

or in Brugge…


we always found some gold handiwork

shining at us.
