I think and it has been confirmed, that…

this dress could be called a deb(utante) frock.

This flock of sheep and herd of cattle…

are certainly livestock.

The clock face of the Arras Bell Tower in France.

A group of rocks just outside Geelong

known as Dog Rocks.

Many photographers photograph this

rock formation, both day and night.

A foggy drive and still…

this sign caught my eye.


And just in case you did not catch it….

not often we see a run of zeros at

a petrol/service/gas station.

Since then fuel has jumped to over

$1.50 per litre top price.

The low end of the cycle is around $1.30 per litre.

Hope you enjoyed.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Barns-Dilapidated-Buildings

~~~

A variety of building shots 

from the Geelong region.


Definitely an abandoned early twentieth century,

building if not earlier.

This probably does not it the dilapidated building

in the true sense of the word…

however, we were just glad it was not our place.

New owners, new broom,

no more old house.

 

I’m not certain what this building was…church, hall or house.

However, the pitch of the roof makes me think

it could be very old by our standards.

Bricks were first made in Australia five months

after convicts arrived and the first commercial bricks

were made at Norwood in South Australia in 1840

 Back to roof pitch…

I have been told that many ‘snow countries‘ have

roofs similar to this to assist in snow run off.

Is this true?

 

Finally, the closest I have to what maybe a barn of sorts.

A variety of windows, both old and new

Looking out to the street through

the inner stain glass windows.

It was through these doors/windows

that a hail storm blew in

with hail stones landing twenty feet

inside these doors.

Views of the Swan River Bank in Perth, Western Australia.

There was a housing complex similar to this which,

we were told, belong to one family only.

Another Swan River scene.

Number 2 Son had the camera this day as we drove

around our second tree plantation.

 Same paddock a couple of weeks ago.

Only this time trees have been harvested and poisoned

in preparation for planting new tube stock.

I nearly took a selfie as our Georgian (USA) born

Plantation Manager acted as chauffeur.

Finally, this photo is tagged as God’s Window

which we visited while in South Africa.

Stunning views as is befitting such a window.

THURSDAY’S SPECIAL-May-Words2018

May 2018 Words

 

Florence’s statue of

Perseus holding the Head of Medusa

aMay not be a classical Greek statue depicting…iconic.

 

However, when you find the head of the victim

one can certainly say there is a victor….and

an athlete of sorts!

With my farming wool classing background

propagation just had to be a photo of sheep 🙂

One way to cleave a cake…

and of course another way…

which only an eighteen year old would think of.

zoomorphic

The eagle…the ancient Roman symbol of gods of the sky.

Marginal

I am using a noun meaning of marginal this week:

a plant that grows in water close to the edge of land.

Two in one go.

When I made reference to

the tailor who killed ‘Seven in one Blow’ 

no-one knew to what I was referring.

And That made me feel older still.

This is not a set up, except that I turned

the trap right way up and placed it

on pavers for the photograph.

We have had six months or more

of mice and rats messing up my shed.

However, when they began to invade

the garage as well,

things became really serious.

Fortunately we have not had anything inside,

touch wood, as others have.

Hope you enjoyed.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Camera-Photographers

~~~

Random shots mostly while

travelling in Europe.
However, this was a treasure I salvaged

from the tip when father-in-law downsized.

I could have taken thousands of shots

of people holding iPads

during our European trip.


 Waiting for the right moment.

 

Not sure where this was taken.

 An iPhone, or similar,

at the Trevi Fountain

 

Finally, a selfie among the new trees last week.
