Cee-BW-Challenge-Rocks

~~~~~

About ten minutes from Geelong is this rock formation

known as Dog Rocks.

 

It is a popular place for photographers…

 

to gather for star photography.

I am afraid out on cold nights doesn’t appeal.

 

 

Early mornings are more my time of day.

For anyone wondering, I have no idea

why this rocky outcrop is called Dog Rocks.

Apart from brief walks to and from railway stations

Dubai was a wonderful place to visit. 

The unseasonal October heat (for us) was overpowering.

So getting to the Burj Khalifa was relatively easy

as was the ride to the 148th floor observation deck which

at 555 metres above ground level was

the world’s highest observation deck in 2016.

 

I’m guessing the temperature rose by

around 20 degrees when we stepped out

to take these photos.

Early morning February sun on Corio Bay.

 

Whether in a steaming mug of milk coffee

or straight out of the fridge…

milk is a marvellous food/drink.

A variety of drinks.Hot and cold drinks abroad The Q Train for

our Wedding anniversary earlier in the year.

I suspect a French breakfast at an Ibis Hotel…last year.

A warm day in Nice called for a cold drink.

 A Sunday morning coffee break was called for…

around 10 AM.

Even though it was raining this  drink was gratefully accepted.

Just a couple of reflections this week.

A Corio Bay seagull dips low on Corio Bay

creating a mirror image reflection.

A still, foggy morning helped create this image on Corio Bay.

I call this Follow Me.

Benches 2

This week recycled machinery.

An old plough…

now serving (with some modifications)

as a handy bench seat.

 

An equally old drill/combine/seeder,

also now serving as a bench on one side, and…

 

a bench and picnic table on the other side.

Although Cee is still on a break

I decided to post a BW this week anyway.

Baobabs don’t grow near water…at least

not the baobabs I have photographed.

However, Photoshop does not know this fun fact.

A bona fide reflection from August 2017.

A definition of bench is a seat upon which

two or more people may sit.

So two out-door benches…

which meet that definition.

 

This photo is of a very different ‘bench’…

and this, a view from that bench.

The 2016 census put the population of Steiglitz at 53.

In the 1860s-1890s the gold rush population

was over 1,000 and was probably the reason

for the construction of the Court House.

Finally, a work  bench I made a few weeks ago.

It was made to take the pressure off my back and knees.

  And I think it fits my definition…

two or more people could sit upon it. 🙂
