Cee-BW-Challenge-Lawn-Ornaments

~~~~~

 

 

Again garden ornaments are few and far between

in our garden and not the type of thing

I normally photograph.

However, we did have these ‘Miss Saigon’ ornaments.

Did have because about three weeks after

this photo was taken…

 

 

…we think either a energetic young

kelpie and or Labrador cut the corner.

We searched high and low for another,

but no such luvk.

These were a gift for MGW’s last school when we moved

Our smallest ornament was some

solar powered tortoise lights.

They did work for a while.

And every time we pass this house I suggested

to MGW that we should think about getting

a plane ornament in our front yard.

My comment is a real conversation stopper! 🙂

Cee-BW-Challenge-Houses


~~~~~

Houses of any kind.

I have taken this literally.

This was the chook (hen/chicken) house

we inherited when we purchased the farm. 

During our tenure it never housed chooks, only ducks. 

My infrequent comments about having

a roast duck for dinner were never well received.   

So I left them alone and the foxes ate well.  

Old farm house.

Now demolished.

So glad this was not our house. 

Not a house but one whose owner

was not happy several years ago.

 

 

A small country town.

A court house museum

in an old gold mining town.

A small Amsterdam house.

 

Finally, the house where I spent

many hours during the 1950s.

My Grandparents owned this

post office for many years.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Legs-Feet

~~~~~

I thought this would be a difficult challenge because

I don’t set out to photograph people these days.

However, it’s scary what some cheap software and

a digital camera can glean from an image.

Legs entertaining tourists.

London legs admiring…

..these legs

Dry legs on wet afternoon in Murano.

Pompeii legs.

Dutch (Amsterdam) legs.

 

 

A business woman’s legs?

Sun baking legs.

Just hope they do not end up like

my sun baked head 🙂

More January legs watching…

…these seemingly untiring legs.

They will be published one hour after this post.

SUNDAY-STILLS-PC-Danger

 

~~~~~

 

We were told upon entering Amsterdam,

that ‘red lights are only a suggestion’…

that a driver stop.

On this corner opposite the Amsterdam Station

we gathered as instructed by our Tour Director.

For some reason MGW decided

to cross the road.

She had a green light.

However, I could see a motor scooter

approaching with no sign of slowing,

through a red light on

a collision course with MGW.

My farmers lungs were able to warn her

of the danger and avoid an early end to our holiday.

Farmers lungs??

They are developed when your dog decides

it knew better than its human and began driving

a mob of sheep in a direction

not wanted in reality.

People…

…who need people…

If  only the iPad operators, in our group

stood this far back from the crowd,

instead of in front.

Will always remember these

two young ladies from Amsterdam.

After asking would they mind posing,

the girl on the left hit me for 5 Euro,

and kept straight face long enough

for mine to express the shock I felt,

before she burst out  laughing.

The villains 🙂

 

Mostly we have met…

 

 

or seen people helping others…

…in various ways.

Is the photographer helping

her model or vice versa?

The ‘shoot’ was for a tertiary

photography course.

Maybe they were studying

the same course.
