Black and White Tuesday

Experimenting with a

Neural Density filter this morning.

Geelong’s Eastern Beach.

Walkers were beginning to fill the path

as I left this morning.

 

Geelong Yacht Club Marina.

 

My favourite spot for photos on the

western side of Corio Bay.

100 Paces.

A few weeks ago my car needed a service and

as usual to fill in some time and gain some exercise,

I set off on a walk around Geelong’s foreshore,

camera in hand.

foreshore_1532Any part of the CBD in Geelong is not far from the beaches

and so, on this early October day

I found myself  wandering along the foreshore

of Western Beach.

Cunningham Pier, which is in the extreme right of this photo,

is the line of demarcation between the

Eastern Beach and Western Beach.

foreshore_1492As with most beach fronts there is the obligatory

trees, lawn, picnic table and barbeques

for tourists and locals alike.

foreshore_1545Also a drinking tap to alleviate dehydration and…

foreshore_1522at this time of year nature is telling us that spring

is just around the corner, or has sprung!

foreshore_1493I love beach areas, sea, not sand, and

in the early hours of the morning,

before the rest of the world before

the hustle and bustle reaches its peak,

Corio Bay is at its best.

Cee’s Black and White Challenge:

Patterns.

~~~~~

 

My Black and White patterns were all found on Geelong’s Eastern Beach precinct.
pattern_1453I was really excited when I found this photo.

A pattern…then I  realised that it was nearly black when I took the photo.

It is part of a palm tree trunk…flipped 90 degrees.

pattern_1451A board walk…again nearly black and white toning.

pattern_1457My destination looms.  The Wharf Shed…

and a belated Father’s Day lunch and Sunday outing,

nearly a month ago, from the boys.

Father’s Day is the first Sunday in September, in Australia.

Another shot taken with patterns in minds, though not much…

Geelong Foreshore

After using some Geelong Foreshore images in the Background Photo Challenge last week, I decided to post another offering from the same area.

Small boats, at their moorings, dot the bay with North Shore and its Shell oil refinery in the middle left distance. Close inspection of this photo will reveal the Shell chimney. An area landmark both day and night when the flame created by burning waste by-products can be seen for miles.

Cunningham Pier

Approximately ninety degrees to the east and Cunningham Pier nearly manages to hide Point Henry and the Alcoa plant on the horizon.

Geelong Foreshore 4

Visitors, tourist and locals abound along the Geelong Foreshore when the sun shines on Corio Bay. Even a cool May afternoon finds the Eastern Beach promenade home to a few souls out to stretch their legs in the fresh air.

Geelong Foreshore 5

The Geelong Waterfront Information Booth is only a short stroll up the hill followed by another ten to fifteen minute walk to the heart of Geelong’s Central Business District.

Back in the ‘good old days’ my wife’s grandfather was head groundsman for this whole area. His job was to ensure that the area was kept in the immaculate condition represented here. I probably benefitted from Pop’s work, years before I met his grand daughter, as our family spent some time at Eastern Beach with my relatives.
