One Word Photo Challenge-Pool

~~~~~

Tried for some variety…

A small prize pool.

The temporary swimming pool we had

after three inches of rain

in the summer of 2005.

The pool is our garage.

And if you visit Cairns you should swim in this pool…

which, if viewed carefully appears to have no sea wall.

On our only visit to Cairns I wandered

down to the beach wondering why

no-one else was there. 

I walked out to ankle depth and upon returning

to the sand spotted a

don’t swim because crocodiles frequent this beach

sign. 

Needless to say I heeded the sign thereafter.

One Word Photo Challenge-Perspective

~~~~~

My first shot is of…

a steel construction.

This may help identify it.

And if this does not, then I am….


this will. 

One building,

three differing perspectives.

One Word Photo Challenge-Pen

~~~~~

Probably not quite the ‘pen’ thought of for this challenge,

but pens just the same.

My old wool shed.

Under the left skillion Is where sheep stand waiting to be shorn.

These are called ‘sweating pens’ 

The shearer’s operated at the far end of the gable roof line.

Under the gable were catching pens.

Here shearer’s would have a pen of sheep each.

They would catch a sheep drag it onto the ‘board’/floor

and shear it prior to realising it into their letting go pen,

where the sheep would remain for each two hour work period

after which, all sheep would be counted and

each shearer would have those sheep added to his totals.

 At the top of this image I have noted the sheep yards.

A collective term.

  Sheep yards are comprised of many smaller yards/pens.

 At livestock selling centres, it is not unusual to see 50,000 sheep

sold through the yards, on sale day, during peak periods.

However, there will also be hundreds of numbered selling pens

so each owner can identify their sheep.

 

The text ‘sheep yards cans also be called pens’ is my largest pen.

 There are, including counting out pens,

nine other pens of diminishing sizes along with two races

used for drafting and animal husbandry purposes.

And that is my pen post.

 

Apologies for the quality of the photo.

 It is a very small section of a larger photo

taken close to twenty years ago.

One Word Photo Challenge-Paper

~~~~~

My first search for paper photos had

the following image ranked number one.

I have no idea why I took it but paper it is.

I also had copious quantities of images

taken at an old paper mill.

Thought that was pushing the theme a bit much.

 

 

Then…the thought hit me….what about Christmas?

I am not sure that it is paper around these gifts,

However, if not it is making

a good impression of being paper.
