Cee-BW-Challenge-Face-Like

~~~~~

I didn’t have much to contribute this week.

However…

…if your imagination rules your mind…

as mine must have been when I took this image,

I can make out a face looking at me

and just to the right a haggard like profile.

For the record this is fire.

A factory burning off waste materials.

A surprise late finding

among my pics.

Sydney’s Luna Park entrance.

Beginning in Sydney with…

the Harbour Bridge, and…

 

…the Sydney Opera House.


Visitors to Federation Square are also welcomed to

the Home of Australian Art, The National Gallery of Victoria.

At the time of its construction it caused quite a bit of controversy.

Now Apple wants to build a store on Federation Square

behind (I think) thee National Gallery.

This is not receiving public support

due to the original design of the store

and the fact that it is at Federation Square.

 


Prior to Melbourne hosting the 2006 March

Commonwealth Games, Spencer Street Station,

our first rail port of call when visiting Melbourne,

was renovated and had its name changed to

Southern Cross Station‘.

I didn’t like the changes at the time. 

Now however, totally different. 

We can travel to Southern Cross Station,

have a light meal and shop all

under the Southern Cross roof. 

Now camera gear is the only thing which will take me

a few blocks in to the Central Business District.

Decided to focus on Sydney this week.

Two images of…

…the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

 

And…

…two  images of the Sydney Opera House…

…taken from the Bridge.

Probably safe to say that water is the only

non man-made item in these shots.

I don’t have many…

…of the action shots required by this theme.

 

However, I think the speed at which these cyclists passed by…

…is conveyed by the blurred background.

Sydney’s King’s Cross Station is where

the last two images were taken.

 

 

I must have used a flash and I am not certain if

that is a reflection of the Sydney Harbour Bridge,

or a reflection of a poster behind me somewhere.

I don’t know Sydney well enough but something tells me

that The Bridge was not in the background  of

any other King’s Cross photos so it must be a poster.

Still it looks effective…I think.

Curves from all over…

Curved seating at Manly, a Sydney suburb.


A curve in the track allowed us to capture images

of the front…


and rear of the Rocky Mountaineer

during our journey back to Vancouver.


Geelong’s Eastern Beach.

Some random beautiful and bigs…

The Burj Khalifa in Dubai.

Big and beautiful, although

in the process of telling us to move on.

Finally, the Sydney Opera House.

My first thoughts were of regular limbs such as…

sun baking legs, and…

performing arms.

Then today we visited two of

New Zealand’s Waitomo Caves and I

could not help but think these

stalactites and stalagmites

looked a bit like limbs stretching out

to greet each other
