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.


Wits End Weekly Photo Challenge: Windows-in-Windows

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. 😀

Cee’s Fun Foto Challeng-Wet-Things


My contribution for this week’s

Smooth Things



First wet thing I thought of was…pelican_2939

a Balyang pelican on a hot summer’s day in 2015.


Then a wet dress at Manly (Sydney).


And there have been das when I would gladly

have traded places with this seagull to cool hot legs.



Sydney ferry spray.


Those Manly fountains again.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Doors-Windows


My contribution for this week’s

Doors and Windows



Sydney town provides my entry this week.Old-Sydney_0040These first few shots are taken in and around old Sydney.

Old-Sydney_0041I think these buildings are original

or loving restored.

 Either way it does gives an insight into

life of the early settlers.

window_0332As we left Manly we came across

St Mathews

Church of the Open Door.
window_0330Inside it was decorated with Christmas lights…window_0328and these wonderful stained glass windows

show workmanship long since lost as a trade I suspect.
