Weekly Photo Challenge-Glow

 

~~~~~

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Glow

~~~~~

My glows are from

Arras, France and Geelong

this week.The Arras Bell Tower lit up by surrounding lights.

 

A combination of wall light and flash light

gave an interesting glow to the wall

of St. Germain’s cafe in Arras.

 

During daylight these are just white balls

adorning Geelong’s Foreshore.

However…

 after dark they become glowing beacons.

Weekly Photo Challenge-Scale

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Scale

~~~~~

These balls adorn the foreshore at

the ocean end of Geelong’s main street.

In daylight they are just white balls…

of similar size once one allows for

subject to camera distance.

Correct?

 

No.  Not all the same size and not all that big.

The stakes supporting the young trees

are only about 2 metres high.

 

A life-size horse and rider…

or something rather small?

 

I posted this shot only a few days ago,

  however, Tembo is twice my size,

and I am not a jockey.

Weekly Photo Challenge-Pedestrian

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Pedestrian

~~~~~

When I think of pedestrian I think of people

that I need to give way to if I am driving.

Or something may move at a pedestrian pace…slowly.

In Africa the animals are the pedestrians which

often move at a pedestrian pace.

 It is far better to wait for some, such as this rhino,

until they have crossed the road.

Similarly a good idea not to upset

the gentle giants of the land.

Some small impala you think you could bluff…

until, he who never looks comes

bounding out of the scrub

Then there are pedestrians who cause traffic chaos

with their sit down strikes.

This lot even sent out a parking inspector to

make sure we were all doing the right thing.

A post about pedestrians would not be complete

without a zebra crossing image.

 Zebras will never die of high blood pressure.

On this day, they even took time out

to gawk at the tourists.

Weekly Photo Challenge-Windows

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Windows

~~~~~

A variety of windows this week.

They say that eyes are a window to one’s soul.

I think these gentle eyes truly reflect

the nature of the beast.

Which eyes are really smiling?

First or second shot?

God’s Window in South Africa, not far from Mt Sheba.

Weekly Photo Challenge-Layered

 

~~~~~

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Layered

~~~~~

The first thing which came to mind was…Black Forest Cake layers.

I wonder why?

When I found this mini haystack.

When I built haystacks we used to refer

to each layer as a row.

 

I now I posted this shot a day or so back.

However, a feature of our southern coastlines

are these sandstone cliffs and

their layers of soft rock, which…

has been known to give way without notice and

would give these tourists a ride better than

any roller coaster could provide.

 May be a one way ticket though.

Finally, ten years ago I/we built this garden bed in layers.

No. 2 Son, at the time called it a pyramid

and to this day it is thusly referred.

Weekly Photo Challenge-Waiting

 

~~~~~

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Waiting

~~~~~

We sighted this pied kingfisher, I think…

in Botswana’s Okavango Delta region.

 

He waited.  

I waited.

 

He waited.

I waited.

He waited.

I waited.

The above shots are contiguous shots.

Even after jumping 25 shots he is only looking.

 

 Then, wham!

Waiting over!

It’s breakfast time.

 The photos are not as crisp as I would have liked.

This part of the reason.

First shot straight out of the camera.

Severe cropping.
