While considered fairly modest swimwear

in the 21st Century…

…it is far more revealing than swimwear

of the 1950s and beyond.






an emotional state or reaction.


Feeling happy…

Feeling cooler……………………and worried

Under cover and still feeling wet…


…at Pompeii,



One Word Sunday Challenge:...Feeling








the quality, state, or sensation of being warm;
moderate heat

In early December 2015 I took up the offer

of a day trip to Sydney with the Camera Club.


Although the sun was out I didn’t think it hot.

However, this photo shows part of

the Manly Beach crowd on that weekday.

Sydneysiders obviously disagreed with me

and thought it warm enough to warrant

a splash in the  sea.






Curves from all over…

Curved seating at Manly, a Sydney suburb.

A curve in the track allowed us to capture images

of the front…

and rear of the Rocky Mountaineer

during our journey back to Vancouver.

Geelong’s Eastern Beach.

Decided to stick to Church windows

this week.

Saint Matthew’s Church,

Manly, Sydney.

Saint John the Baptist Church,

Arras, France.

Wesley Church in Fremantle…

Western Australia.

Finally, it maybe a stretch to call this a windows, 

however, it can be found in

Cathédrale Notre-Dame-Immaculée

(Cathedral of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception),

also known as Saint Nicholas Cathedral and also

contains the tombs of

Princess Grace and Prince Rainier

of Monaco.

Weekly Photo Challenge-Story



My contribution for this week’s challenge…



One hot day in Sydney…

one youngster found a cool way to keep cool.

Big sister is not so sure.

“I think you are getting wet”


It’s official.

The water is wet.




Weekly Photo Challenge-Rounded



My contribution for this week’s challenge…



Random images this week.

Some of the curves and swirls in Geelong.


Both the path and trees have bends in them.


In my youth a shirt hanging out

was a fashion faux pas.

Today’s youth, particularly have other ideas.


A design decoration found in Melbourne.

Not exactly sure what this if used for but it seemed

to fit Manly’s general design trends.

Perhaps it is used as a back rest?


Finally, a curve and swirled fence.




Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Letter-H


My contribution for

this week’s challenge


H is for Happy


From Manly, Sydney, last year.

On a hot day little sister did not care how

she cooled down.

A very small part of a larger scene,

but a very happy group of beach goers.

Even the Council was making us feel happy.


This young lady was thoroughly

enjoying applying sun screen

Or was it just life in general?

Again a small part of a large scene.


Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Fountains


My contribution for this week’s




Some local fountains to begin…

On the shore of Lake Wendouree, Ballarat.

Lake Wendouree was the site of all rowing events

at the 1956 Olympic Games.

Not sure if this is an operating fountain,

or, whether the previous photo

belongs is part of this fountain.


A wall of water at Manly, Sydney,

which was being enjoyed…


by this pair.


The King’s Cross Fountain.


I knew King’s Cross as a suburb of Sydney

and its reputation before my visit last year.

The fountain was not one of the things to

which I am referring.

According to

Frankie Davidson’s 1962 song Have You Ever Been to See King’s Cross

I have now seen the world. 😀
