Doors from Geelong and Melbourne.

Two Church door to be found in…


A Melbourne door.


Wits End Weekly Prompt:  Door-Closes




Random rows this week.

Supermarket trolleys

Bollards in Melbourne to provide resistance

to wayward water vessel I think.

over the next few months we will see acres and acres

of cut hay raked into windrows waiting to cure and bale.


Wits End Weekly Prompt:  Rows




For many years I would have said that…

live lambs on the ground this time of year

was the fruit of my labours. 

It took countless hours of animal husbandry,

each year to survive winter and have

healthy ewes and lambs as spring approaches.

Nearly thirty years ago my attention turned to education. 

A university education for myself and then assisting to

prepare these students for the real world

with an all day trip to Melbourne

via a three-hour train trip (each way)

as part of the Year 8 Geography curriculum.

This group would be around thirty years of age now.


Now the fruits of my labour are photos such as

this mornings sunrise at Geelong’s Corio Bay.

Don’t know how things are north 

of the equator, but in Victoria

the sun beat me this morning. 

Only the cloud bank helped in any sort of shot.

Whether it is taking public transport (train)… 

to Melbourne and back, or…

posting blog posts we all

are working to a schedule.

Kudu burning off some evening energy. 


As were these Springbok on the outskirts of Johannesburg. 

This was our introduction to African wildlife.


Fandango’s One Word Challenge: Schedule



Around the turn of the century,

a new football stadium was built

in the Docklands precinct of Melbourne.

It was/is only a five-minute walk from

your train platform at Southern Cross Station. 

Unfortunately, in 2013, city planners allowed one of the banks

to build in front of Docklands Stadium.  

This modern monstrosity, in my option,

has thoroughly spoiled views of the stadium.
