RyanPhotography-WeeklyPC-72-Vacation

~~~~~~

I’m not sure why…

…mankind deems it necessary to endure strenuous walks

while carrying backpacks, when on vacation.

I do know why…I think.

Where else are we going to put our cameras,

medications of all varieties,

the wet weather/cold weather gear,

sunscreens, spare glasses,

bottle of water and so on??

 

Whether a long holiday,

a long weekend

or simply a day out in the sun…

 

 

..relaxing on and around Lake Lucerne

seems an ideal way to take a break.

It was over forty years…

…since I first heard of Butchart Gardens.

The wait was well worth it.

 

 

The floral displays were…

…simply gorgeous…

 

 

…and all parts…

 

 

…of the gardens…

…were immaculately cared for.

RyanPhotography-WeeklyPC-69-Waves

~~~~~~

There are many types of ‘waves’,

however, I am sticking with

my most photographed waves.


Some smallish waves near Gibson steps

which are near the Twelve Apostles. 

The rest of this week’s images were taken near…

…or at, Torquay beaches.

 

The waves were important in as much as…

 

 

 

…they gave my subjects…

 

 

…somewhere to play.

One of my favourite photos,

although I don’t think the surfer

would agree it was his best moment.

RyanPhotography-WeeklyPC-68-Facade

~~~~~~

I haven’t taken leave of my senses!

These Hobbit images were posted 

for their circular content last week.

This week I re-posted them

(and here is a spoiler alert)

because they are only facades

Very few Hobbit houses have

any capacity/room behind the front door.

For all intents and purposes the houses

are only three or four feet deep.

From memory, there was only one house

which had any storage room inside

and that was very limited.

They are simply an addition to the hillside.

Geelong’s Deakin University

Water Front Campus

Until the late 1960s/early 70s this building

was Dalgety’s Wool Store.

During wool sales wool belonging to

wool producers from all over Victoria and

into new South Wales would have their

wool on display for buyers’ appraisal before sale.

 

Today the waterfront area of Geelong still is home

to many of these red brick buildings.

Their facade is the only reminder of their

original purpose, for those of us

old enough to remember.

My creativity comes from

nature this week.Moon set behind neighbours trees.

I like both these canola crop images although…

…this is the version which

would grace our walls.

 

My last two images are both water shots

with some simple editing….because

I can’t do fancy editing 🙂

 

There was a CD cover challenge

a few years back.

An image of shallow water

became my cover with a title

courtesy of MGW.
