Doesn’t seem that long ago that we did not

have a microwave in our kitchen.

It was our first wedding anniversary

when we purchased our first one.


Always a good supply of glasses.

Definitely need a kettle.

And there is always handles/knobs

on cupboards and drawers.

And no kitchen is complete unless there are

some tea caddies…although they actually

store coffee and sugar as well as tea.

I think lightning looks good in either

colour or black and white.

A very recent foggy morning.

 Lastly my favourite recent photo.

A short sharp downpour provided me

with enough time to grab a camera and

photograph this rain.

This is a photo that looks better after editing

and also looks good in BW.

At least that’s my opinion.

This was a tough challenge to find photos for.

Our twelve-year-old wrestles Maggie

to within an inch of her life.

Would be an appropriate caption be.

Is that all you’ve got?

Misty was a rescue cat.


Soxie in his younger, vicious, nasty cat days.

I’m not a cat person if you haven’t guessed.


Finally, Ginger in her favourite spot on my ute.

Like her father, Brandy, it didn’t matter

what was on the back they would

find a spot and sit and

wait for me.


Cee’s Black & White Challenge: Pets





Many stone fences like this

where I spent most of my life.We were in the middle of a volcanic area

and associated lava flows.

Rock piles made by tourists at a river mouth

down on the coast.


Looks a bit like a sandstone shed of days gone by.


A church in  Fremantle.

With nearly a three hour drive ahead of me

this was…

one of my first views of the distant

Grampians, on Monday.

Taken from this perspective,

Cunningham Pier Restaurant

looks very distant behind the right most ball.


While Melbourne’s St Kilda Pier is longer

than Geelong’s Cunningham Pier,

the kiosk on the end of St Kilda Pier

also looks a long way off.


Cee’s Black & White Challenge: In-the-Distance





Commencing at our hotel in Vienna…The Imperial Riding School.


 A long passage to…


The foyer of Dubai’s

Burj Al Arab…

 with its twin walk ways/escalators

either side of the fountain.

Another walk to the

Sky View Lounge


an elevator ride to the top.


However, over in the Vatican walkers

ascend this spiral (step less)

staircase at a more sedate pace.

A Farm Related post….yeeeesssss!

 The most recent of my photos is this one

taken in March this year.

Dad’s empty hay shed.


Some excess rolls of hay I had one year.


Sheep…not mine.

 Cattle…definitely not mine.

The Master (Brandy) and The Apprentice (Zoey).

 Brandy ‘lived’  on the back of my ute and

knew exactly where the kitchen window was.

My old wool shed and farm buildings.

Not a good photo but memories of our last shearing.

Our last bales of wool to be pressed.
