One Word Photo Challenge-Scale

~~~~~

I  decided to use this image of lumberjacks

scaling poles on Vancouver’s,

Grouse Mountain.

For the record, the climber on the left

won the contest by the proverbial ‘country mile’.

He as completed his descent while his rival

has just made to the top.

One Word Photo Challenge-Sale

~~~~~

In my youth I always thought that a ‘Sale’ sign

meant all items were selling at reduced prices

Not the case though, is it?

I cannot remember where I saw this plate of goodies,

but there is every chance it was on a holiday,

or special occasion,

and we did pay through the nose for the privilege.

But the plate of goodies was for sale…at a price!

We did not put our hands in our pockets for this gondola ride.

At least not on the day.

However, I think it would be a safe bet to say

the gondoliers received payment for services

from Trafalgar Tours.

Monies which we paid Trafalgar.

I call this the sail…different spelling though.

What the Burj Al Arab had for sale was High Tea.

A three-hour experience which,

while not as affordable as a daily coffee,

was well worth every cent of its selling price.

That three hours did not include time spent

purchasing new clothes befitting

the occasion and the venue.

Even my photos are for sale…at a price.

However, I don’t think I will ever be known for my photos.

I participated in an Arts Trail weekend in March

and displayed some photos in previous art shows.

I discovered that having a piece of art for sale

and having it sold are poles apart.

One Word Photo Challenge-Rhinoceros

~~~~~

My rhinoceros photos are not zoo pics…

They were taken in a Sanctuary in Africa which is

guarded twenty-four hours a day,

365 days each year.

Signs of poaching a dealt with on a

shoot first ask questions later‘ basis.

 

It would be ice to think that if this

beautiful specimen has gone to rhino heaven

that passing was of natural causes

and not due to a poacher.

One Word Photo Challenge-Positive

~~~~~

My positive post comes…

at the end of a 90 minute trial ferry service

from Geelong to Melbourne.

Seeing the sun rising under the West Gate Bridge,

sailing under said bridge and

looking up to see the Australian flag flying high

are all things not experienced when driving.

As we motored up the Yarra River

to our, 0745, Docklands destination,

the sunrise was there to guide us.

Perhaps not the most spectacular sunrise photographed,

but certainly better than full cloud cover.

All-in-all a very positive early morning outing.
