FOWChallenge-Skimp

~~~~~

skimp

expend or use less time, money, or material on something
than is necessary in an attempt to economize.
“don’t skimp on insurance when you book your holidays”
a fashionably short or revealing garment.
“she wore a yellow skimp”

Not many years ago this hemline…

…would have shocked everyone.

Now it is rather conservative.

The bikini clad sun lovers are borderline skimpy

by today’s standards.

As I don’t shoot many people in skimpy attire,

I  had too search photos like this to find…

to find any skimpy or not so skimpy clad

beach goers at Sydney’s Manly Beach.

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.

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

Wits-End-PC-Windows-in-Windows

 

Decided to stick to Church windows

this week.

Saint Matthew’s Church,

Manly, Sydney.

Saint John the Baptist Church,

Arras, France.

Wesley Church in Fremantle…

Western Australia.

Finally, it maybe a stretch to call this a windows, 

however, it can be found in

Cathédrale Notre-Dame-Immaculée

(Cathedral of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception),

also known as Saint Nicholas Cathedral and also

contains the tombs of

Princess Grace and Prince Rainier

of Monaco.

Story

~~~~~

One hot day in Sydney…

one youngster found a cool way to keep cool.

Big sister is not so sure.

“I think you are getting wet”

 Yep!

It’s official.

The water is wet.

My contribution for

this week’s challenge

Letter-H

H is for Happy

~~~~~

From Manly, Sydney, last year.

On a hot day little sister did not care how

she cooled down.

A very small part of a larger scene,

but a very happy group of beach goers.

Even the Council was making us feel happy.

 

This young lady was thoroughly

enjoying applying sun screen

Or was it just life in general?

Again a small part of a large scene.
