My special place…

…for sunrise shots is…

…Griffin Gully…

 

…and its Pier.

 

All of these images…

 

…have been captured…

 

…within approximately 50 metres from…

 

…where the pier joins the walking path.

Last, but by no means least,

is my favourite fog shot.

Also captured from

Griffin Gully.

~~~~~

~~~~~

The newest member of our family has undergone

a great deal of change since early March 2021.

In March 2021,

not much movement.

 

By February 2022, at about eleven months of age,

she can now stand up on her own, however,

she is not quite walking but manages

to get her nose is into everything.

***

Breaking news!

On Wednesday morning we received

a short video from number 1 son

depicting his daughter taking

two or three small unaided steps

towards her mother.

I was able to isolate (roughly) this frame.

Does two or three steps make it official?

Back in the Seventies, I learned that

no matter what one sees or visits

during one’s travels,  there is

no place like home.

To hear a customs officer greet you with

Welcome Home

in a familiar accent is

one of the most relaxing parts

of a 14 to 22-hour flight.

I am almost certain travellers worldwide

would agree with these sentiments.

This week my images end with

some of my favourites….Open Spaces.

~~~~~

I have to say my most memorable events

are the birth of our two boys and our first grandchild.

The former because I was there.

The latter, because she was, is, a bright note

in a year of lockdowns.

Last year in early March (2021)

we received our first photos

of our first grandchild from across the ditch.

She was  born in her mother’s hometown

in New Zealand

A few years ago I was interested in photographing cemeteries.

I never did get back to some of the places I wanted

to photograph and then 2020 came upon us.

Enough said.

Old cemeteries provide a wealth…

 …of photographic opportunities.

 

For all intents and purposes, this object appears

to be part of a fence and that is about all…

…until one looks at it from the snail’s point of view.

Although I tagged this as an urn,

today I think it is more like a vase for flowers.

It was discovered on the foot of a grave

in a country cemetery.
