In my view these a creepy photos, however,

I am sure there are those who will disagree.

Not the greatest photo but it gives an idea

of what ‘getting ready for lunch’ means.

A wrapped meal.

Morning sun has made these images…

in my opinion.

Odd Ball

Week 12, 2017

~~~~~

Last Wednesday I planned a drive to

The Twelve Apostles…

to capture a sunset shot.

Well before sunset I decided to drive to a

nearby town to grab a snack to tide me over.

As I was reversing out of my car park another car reversed out

hit me and left me with what appeared to be

a scratch on my rear bumper.

Since talking to panel repair shops that $100 or $200

repaint has grown to $1200 to $1500 for parts

as ‘the experts’ have said I need a new two part bumper

which will cost that much.

Plus whatever damage may be on the inside of the bumper.

After seeing another car reverse out the same,

and wrong, way, I did not stick around for sunset.

A few days ago I heard our New Holland Honey Eaters

in full voice as I left home.

I paused for a while to see if I could capture a shot.

The best I could do was this.

 

t was not until I cropped it that I could see the bird’s eye…

giving me the eye as I captured its image.

Week 10, 2017

While having dinner one night in Vienna,

I received a tap on the shoulder and was asked to dance.

So with an almighty language barrier preventing much conversation

I spent the next five minutes shuffling around

on a carpeted floor, in rubber soled shoes,

with a woman who was clearly a better dancer than I.

I won’t even mention that the area was about two feet wide

and waiters were continually hurrying to and from

their destinations every few minutes.

When the music stopped I was presented with this certificate,

‘from the Academy’ as wait staff told me.

It’s not often I get a certificate, for anything.

MGW gets a certificate every tine she has to renew her first aid.

My work place did not to hand out records of evidence to participating staff,

despite wanting evidence that we had completed the required courses.

 Hence one of us has a huge pile of work related certificates

and one has many less.

So, I am trying to hang on to this one for dear life and

decided to photograph it in case of damage.

This may be my ”oddest,” Odd Ball. 😀

A few months ago I wrote about visiting

St Leonard’s on the Surf Coast.

I stopped on the pier to chat to a fisherman

and take a few photos.

Trying to get a different perspective, I stretched out

on the concrete pier and merrily snapped away.

notice this one behind me

and began to wander what dregs

I may have been lying in or on.

Being of Irish ancestors I found this sign rather novel.

I’m not sure why.

Just something not expected to be seen in Amsterdam.
