I think and it has been confirmed, that…

this dress could be called a deb(utante) frock.

This flock of sheep and herd of cattle…

are certainly livestock.

The clock face of the Arras Bell Tower in France.

A group of rocks just outside Geelong

known as Dog Rocks.

Many photographers photograph this

rock formation, both day and night.

Black and White Challenge.

A variety of windows, both old and new

Looking out to the street through

the inner stain glass windows.

It was through these doors/windows

that a hail storm blew in

with hail stones landing twenty feet

inside these doors.

Views of the Swan River Bank in Perth, Western Australia.

There was a housing complex similar to this which,

we were told, belong to one family only.

Another Swan River scene.

Number 2 Son had the camera this day as we drove

around our second tree plantation.

 Same paddock a couple of weeks ago.

Only this time trees have been harvested and poisoned

in preparation for planting new tube stock.

I nearly took a selfie as our Georgian (USA) born

Plantation Manager acted as chauffeur.

Finally, this photo is tagged as God’s Window

which we visited while in South Africa.

Stunning views as is befitting such a window.

Travel Theme-Love

~~~~~

My

Love

Travel Theme.

The first ‘love’ symbol I thought of…

was our Salzburg Christmas decoration.

 

 Then came the city of love and…

 

a few of its iconic sights.

 However, this was the only couple showing

any signs of public affection.

I fell in love the I Love Paris shop because

it was the only place I could purchase

any clothing which would fit me.

Now it’s just a matter of wearing out

other clothes so I can wear my

I Love Paris windcheater.

Travel Theme-Warm

~~~~~

My

Warm

Travel Theme.

In early June I set off on my tour of

Western Front WW I battlefields. 

MGW was not interested,

hence it was a solo trip.

MGW was not all that happy to see my Facebook

posts with me in shorts and shirts sleeves

at her relative’s Fromelles grave.

The weather had turned cold Down Under.

The sun shone on the road to

Vlaanderen, in Belgium

 and continued to do so at

Hill 60…

the site of the Christmas Truce

at Prowse Point.

All in all one could not ask for

better weather while travelling.

Travel Theme-Fragile

My

Fragile

Travel Theme.

A network so fine…

 to display these…

dew drops in all their glory.

Another kind of fragility…in Nice last year…

 

reminded us of the fragile grip on life we have.

Travel Theme-Frozen

My

Frozen

Travel Theme.

Not the first time I have posted either of these.

However, I have never seen another

occurrence of the top scenario.

 Winter 2006 or 2007.

 Actually this was a first for me also.

Did not know we had ice rinks in Melbourne.

Travel Theme-Branches

My

Branches

Travel Theme.

A blogger told me this was a

Ginko tree/leaves a few months ago.

I hope my memory is serving me well.

Eucalyptus trees capturing the morning sun.

 

I think the bird is a darter on these dead branches.

Colours have been inverted in Picasa

to create a negative effect.

Unfortunately those in power, in their wisdom

decided to cut down these Sugar Gums.

Instead of this view there are now

 many tiny tree guards protecting whatever

has since been planted.

I just love these big old trees.

And so livestock on a sunny day.
