Black and White Challenge:

Perspective

~~~~~

When we first moved to Geelong, or maybe before,

we noticed this art work at the bay end of Moorabool Street.

No-one we asked seemed to know if it had a name

or when it was put there,

so we coined the name

The Sharks Teeth‘.

It was not until last year that a camera club member asked

what I was talking about.

Upon explaining he burst out laughing with

I’ve heard it called a lot of things, but never sharks teeth

 Apparently they represent sails or sail boats.

This all makes sense as quite often there is a small flotilla

of sailing boats on the bay all crewed by children,

and therefore, I have not taken any photos of said boats

as they are usually close enough to shore

for the crew to be identified.

Weekly Photo Challenge ~ Background

There have been many times during the past few years I have driven past these scenes and thought that I should bring a camera “one day”. Since commencing Blogging, in early April, photography has come to the forefront of my past times.

As a result my Nikon and I are beginning to understand each other a little better.

Cunningham Pier 3

The view across Corio Bay to Cunningham Pier and beyond, from The Esplanade, is ever-changing.

On public holidays the foreground is a hive of activity with families having a barbecue beneath the palm trees, to celebrate the holiday. While others congregate around activities at Cunningham Pier in the background.

If all is quiet on the pier there is, in all likelihood, going to be some activity over at the yacht club.

Cunningham Pier 2

As yet I still have not been to the restaurant at the far end of Cunningham Pier, nor can I am I old enough to remember when trams used to ply the length of the pier and continue on to and beyond the Central Business District.
