A-Photo-a-Week-Challenge-Hand-Made

~~~~~~

In the summer of 1989….

I created this kennel from the meagre scraps

of material which came with our farm.

It last until the summer of 2016.

Two new dogs meant two new kennels.

 

 Taji was introduced to hers…

and she appeared to give it…

 

the nose of approval.

She promised Candi that she would not

use hers until Candi had one, also.

Then Maggie had a look around and

decided she wanted new digs also.

so it was that we had three home-made

kennels being occupied.

This is Candi’s kennel.

Yesterday, as on other days when Taji is tied up

and Candi off the chain,

they snuggle up for their midday nap together.

A-Photo-a-Week-Challenge-Recreation

~~~~~~

Recreation varies from person to person.

I used to think of this as recreation when in my late teens, early twenties. 

Cycling can be a sport or recreational.

For me, it was always recreational.

 

Our safari guide had his own form

of recreational activity.

The twenty-minute power nap!

I managed to capture a couple of half decent photos…

of this sport/recreational activity at Torquay…

during a morning in which I was

pursuing my own recreational activity.

A-Photo-a-Week-Challenge-Literary-Reference

~~~~~~

My first thoughts were of Top Gun.

But Google and MGW disagreed…and Google lost.

True to form MGW suggested another true literary piece.

 

Even though only taken a week ago…

 

I had not thought of these images for this challenge.

 

This cow and calf put on a good show at

Warrnambool’s, Logans Beach

Southern Right Whale Nursery

and were far more relaxed

than Moby Dick ever was.

The New Zealand Soldier Memorial, at…

Messines, Belgium.

This memorial is in the centre of town and

is a tribute to all soldiers of the

New Zealand Division

who  participated in

the Battle of Messines Ridge

in 1914.

I haven’t taken bird photos for a while so

some may seem familiar.

A Pacific Gull

 

Cape Barren Goose

Cape Barren Goose.

 

A couple of years ago I visited Sydney and found

this Australian white Ibis enjoying the

comforts of the El Alamein Fountain

at King’s Cross, on a hot December day.

A-Photo-a-Week-Challenge-Aquamarine

~~~~~~

I don’t know how I missed… 

the Aquamarine challenge.

 

I quickly remembered photos…

which my eyes tell me are good for the post.

All photos taken at Torquay,

near Bell’s Beach, which is where the

Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach,

World Surf League Championship

is held each Easter.

A-Photo-a-Week-Challenge-Mountain

~~~~~~

Two ‘mountains’ I have passed countless times

while driving to Melbourne and Geelong

when I lived on the farm.

Mount Shadwell at Mortlake.

Mortlake claims to be the Olivine (Peridot)

Capital of the Australia.

Whereas Mount Elephants claim to fame is that,

if you use you imagination,

that it looks like the upper portion of an elephant.

I saw a photo a few weeks ago,

taken from the other side.

Looks nothing like an elephant.

Oh! Well! 😦

Nearly forgot…these ‘Mountains’

are only several hundred feet high,

but they are quite noticeable landmarks

in Western Victoria which once was

a hot bed of active volcanoes.

These volcanic cones is all that remains

of that point in time.
