Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Blue-Yellow

~~~~~

Blues and yellows from all over.

This was new to me.

I was unaware we had coast guard boats, as such,

let alone yellow ones.

 

Air Arctic at Coldfoot airport.

A local tourist train.

Fairbanks airport I think.

My favourite form this set.

Loved the song or The Beatles.

Not so  sure now though.

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Liquid

Earlier this year MGW and I decided to…  

celebrate our wedding anniversary with

a First Class Dining Experience on The Q Train,

a restored Queenslander Train

which runs on a short section of disused track

between Drysdale and Queenscliff.

  

Part of the First Class experience was a private cabin…

a six course meal and…

matching wine with each course.

 

As wine does not appeal to either of us we asked for

were supplied with a non-alcoholic version of each drink,

some of which I have included in today’s post.

We hope to repeat the journey sometime in the future

and while we have daylight saving time so

we can enjoy the scenery as we dine.

Beginning with sunshine…

going…

 

and coming to start a new day.

 

 

The Q Train shining its light into the darkness ahead…

The Q Train as the engine swaps ends and joins up

to take us back to the beginning of our journey.

The Q Train is a Dining train which operates

on a section of track,

no longer used for public transport,

between Drysdale and Queenscliff.

 

 

Last Friday, May 11, just before sun up at the car park…

 

at Geelong’s Eastern Beach.

Public Transport…

A V/Line Train on its way to Melbourne.

Rounded a corner a few weeks back only to see

this train approaching the bridge.

I just managed a few clicks before it disappeared.

 

Melbourne Taxis waiting for fares.

 

Melbourne Taxi.

Melbourne Trams.

 

Finally, The Q Train. 

The Q Train has a 3 hour round  trip journey

for those wanting a different lunch or dinner venue. 

For us, it was celebrating

our wedding anniversary this year.

If not classified as ‘public transport’ now,

it certainly was public transport.

These carriages are all restored

Queenslander Class railway carriages…

which formed The Sunlander Train, in Queensland.

Passengers could travel from Brisbane to Cairns

between June 1953 and December 2014.

The Spirit of Queensland has now

replaced The Sunlander. (Wikipedia)

The Q Train now operates on a small section

of railway line just out of Geelong.

The Q Train departs from Drysdale Station,

runs to Queenscliff, on the coast,

where the engine turns around

and returns diners to Drysdale.

I drove to Point Lonsdale on Monday,

in the hope of a good sunrise

A large cloud bank blocked any

nice reflections off the lighthouse.

But I did manage this over the water shot

of a well risen sun.

 

As well as these two as the sun crept higher…

into the sky over nearby Queenscliff.

Hope you enjoyed.

Weekly Photo Challenge-Grid

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Grid

~~~~~

Plenty of Grid photos this week.

Perhaps not entirely Rule-of-Thirds…but grids just the same.

geelong_1863Commencing with two re-posts from last week.

The Waurn Ponds branch of the Geelong Library

is covered on all sides with this grid pattern.

Not everyone’s taste.

Queenscliff-Fort_6584Again these windows (?) in the Queenscliff Fort

are set in grid formation.

roof_0518A ceiling, skylight in one of Melbourne’s Lanes.

DC Photographyooooooooo

Windows and inset frames all in grid formation.

art_0563Bricks make an ideal grid, of sorts, for this laneway art.

reflection_0489A century later and we still have windows and glass walls…

reflection_0445laid out in grids.

grid-tiles_0513Finally this reminded me of the Roman Tessellated Pavement

in Canterbury (I think).

It was 1976 when I visited the United Kingdom. 🙂

I believe that this is the floor below the skylight (3rd photo).
