Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Blue-Yellow

~~~~~

~~~~~

Blues and yellows from all over.

This was new to me.

I was unaware we had coast guard boats, as such,

let alone yellow ones.

 

Air Arctic at Coldfoot airport.

A local tourist train.

Fairbanks airport I think.

My favourite form this set.

Loved the song or The Beatles.

Not so  sure now though.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Pairs

~~~

~~~~~

Pairs from Africa.

and from Kruger National PArk.

The Rhinos being the exception today.

We sighted these at the

Khama Rhino Sanctuary in Botswana.

This sanctuary has a twenty-four hour military guard

with a ‘shoot first ask questions later‘ brief.

Remarkable how cheeky young elephants are.

By far my favourite pair.

Nosy and Rosy at six weeks of age.

An unexpected game drive produced this sighting on

our last evening in South Africa in October 2013.

During September 2014 Limpy their mother was euthanized.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Colorful-Monotone

~~~

~~~~~

These sunrises are close to…

colourful monochrome, I think.

This year has been a tough one for good sunrises, sunsets.

They always seem to have been elsewhere.

 

These last three are Corio Bay sunrises.

My imagination tells me the colour palette is similar.

 

 

This is one of my favourites, even if it does not fit here.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Cycles

~~~

Bicycles and Motorcycles

We first noticed the high usage of bicycles in Brugge.    

While in Amsterdam the bicycle flat

provides free parking for 2,500 bicycles.

~~~~~

The Cadel Evans January Road Race in Geelong’s suburbs.

The Peloton.

Motorcycles and shouldered television cameras

beaming the action to the world.

Riders look relaxed but are travelling

at a phenomenal speed.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Farm-Animals

~~~


A bit late in the year for these first two scenes…

however I spent many years relying on seeing both images.

Hereford cattle.

Always wanted a horse as a youngster.

Dear old Brandy in his favourite spot

on the back of my farm ute.

I think it is Molly with top spot

in this image….or

so the tag informs me.

MGW’s favourite cat…Moppett

He died many years ago.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Candid

~~~

Some Candid shots and crops

from Vancouver.

I saw a similar scene near Melbourne last year.

It was a photography assignment.

 

 

It may appear that I was taking a shot of this lady.

I can assure she was not my subject…

this is the scene I wanted to capture…leggo Orca.

In 1976 there was the real Orca doing tricks for tourists.

Is this a tribute?

Ever since taking this image I have pondered their story.

Was it young love, or models posing for

the ‘photographer’ in the foreground.

 

 

 

It was only this morning that I noticed the ‘photographer’

has his left arm dangling by his side and that

he appears to be using his phone (for its old-fashioned use)

and not taking a photo at all.



Aussie tourists being photographed by, yes,

another Aussie tourist.
