Although not much surf around last Friday…

there were more surfers than usual.

At least when I have visited.

Most surfers were getting a…

decent ride when they caught a wave, small as they were.

Even found some decent subject matter closer

to me and not moving  as much…

which does, I think look better in colour.

Oh! Well!

While searching my photos for another post,

I came across this bollard cyclist…bollard_0005

setting the exercise example for all.

Bollards, similar to this are scattered all around Corio Bay.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Big-and-Small

My contribution for this week’s

Big and Small

 

I marveled at this sight a few years ago…

sunrise_corio_bay_6964

as I had never seen tugs at work before…or since.

 sunrise_corio_bay_6965The size difference is noticeable here, however…

sunrise_corio_bay_6987

only for the puff of smoke from its smoke stack,

our little tug would be lost, in this shot.

 A better size comparison here.

Leaves 

Saint James’ Park, London features this week.

leaves_saint-james-park-london_0117A variety of coloured leaves provides

a nice visual display in this part of the park.

leaves_saint-james-park-london_0107And I just had to take a photo of this.

The plant in the centre I know as

Castor Oil Bush‘ which Google tells me it is not.

However, we had two great clumps of it,

not in the garden but not far away.

They were about 5 – 10 metres in diameter and I spent

a large portion of my teen years trying to eliminate them.

Imagine my surprise to find it being cultivated

about 400 metres from Buckingham Palace.
