Weekly Photo Challenge-Evanescent

 

~~~~~

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Evanescent

~~~~~

According to Google the literary meaning of evanescent is…

soon passing out of sight, memory,

or existence; quickly fading or disappearing.

The first things that came to mind were rainbows.


They appear from nowhere and before you can say…

where’s the camera, or aaahhh!

they are fading to memory.

This shot I called Two Minutes of Magic.

I would not have had time to run, let alone walk,

the length of the pier to

grab a camera, battery or SD card.

The world aligned for two minutes

allowing me to capture a sunrise on

Point Lonsdale Lighthouse

that I was not anticipating.

Weekly Photo Challenge-Heritage

 

~~~~~

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Heritage

~~~~~

Part of Geelong’s Heritage listing are

these old red brick buildings

on Geelong’s Waterfront.
These buildings used to house all wool bales for sale

and it was a tradition to visit the Geelong sales

when your wool was due to be auctioned.

Those in power, in their wisdom have placed the buildings,

of which these are but a few, on a heritage list.

This means that the externals facade will

forever remain the same, but…

as this one, the purpose and interior can be remodeled.

In this instance this is the

Waterfront Campus of

Geelong’s Deakin University.

 On a personal level, part of my heritage has been

the connection to this gun which fired the first Allied shot,

from just across the Bay at Point Nepean, of World War I.

My Grandfather was part of that gun crew.

He went to serve on the Western Front in France and Belgium.

I plan to visit this area in a few weeks.

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Reflecting

~~~~~

I have chosen some ‘Reflections’ this week.

Balyang Sanctuary…

in Geelong.

Balyang Sanctuary.

Balyang Sanctuary.

However, this one gave me time to reflect on the

levels of our backyard on May 11, this year.
