Bridge over Swan River

Western Australia



Under on the Rocky Mountaineer.


The only time I have been below

Black and White Challenge.


While cruising the Swan River (Perth-Fremantle)

we were shown large, expensive properties

built on the river’s banks.

My next photos are known as God’s Window.

Located a short drive from

Mount Sheba Resort…

…in South Africa’s, Blyde River Canyon,

the views are spectacular

totally befitting a view through

God’s Windows.

If ever you are going to visit New Zealand’s

Hobbit Movie Set at Matamata,

be sure to consider

Bucklands Air BnB.

Only a five-minute drive and you are

in a world of Hobbits.

The image above is taken through

the window of Bucklands BnB.










I always find it fascinating to sit and…

…watch the movements outside at an airport.

In this case it was Auckland nearly 12 months ago.

Cruising the Swan River in Western Australia.

Viewing some expensive real estate.

Inside looking out…and…

…outside looking in.

It is the same window.


My favorite ‘window’ shot from last year.

The view out our Matmata BnB in New Zealand.  🙂

Matamata is near the Hobbit Movie Set




Hugh’s Views & News: Windows 

Thursday Lingering Look at Windows-Wk-50


Decided to look at windows from the other side this week.

The following shots are from our cruise from Perth to Fremantle on

Western Australia’s Swan River.



If my memory serves me correctly, and the information provided is correct, the buildings on the waterfront in this photo all belong to the same family.  A careful look and you will see one or two houses about half way up the river bank with the same colour roof which are also part of this waterfront mansion.


Certainly an enjoyable cruise with time in Fremantle for shopping.

Well worth the day out if ever in Perth.

Cee-Black-White Challenge-Transportation


My contribution for this week’s

Black and White Challenge.



Maybe not exactly public transport but we were required to pay for the privilege of a cruise down the Swan River from Perth to Fremantle.


It certainly was not the best looking boat, ferry, whatever,  on the river but it was inexpensive and we were entertained, by the Captain of the vessel, on the journey to Fremantle.   He had not taken lessons in political correctness but had the personality to get away with his comments and everyone was having a chuckle… least outwardly!

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-One


My contribution for this week’s

One Item




My first ‘one’ is one Perth Bell Tower.



… and one weather vane on one church spire.



AND for the big finale….one blue boatshed on the banks of the Swan River which, we were told, recently sold for over $1,000,000.
