Black and White Tuesday

~~~~~

Hard to imagine the water full of surfers…

but this was exactly the case on Monday,

just to the left and bottom of shot.

I don’t think waves were as big as forecast…

and my photos are not as good as hoped for.

There was a class of about 30 school age teenagers

surfing the breakers in shore and these blokes…

 were a long way out.

A-Photo-a-Week-Challenge-Recreation

~~~~~~

Recreation varies from person to person.

I used to think of this as recreation when in my late teens, early twenties. 

Cycling can be a sport or recreational.

For me, it was always recreational.

 

Our safari guide had his own form

of recreational activity.

The twenty-minute power nap!

I managed to capture a couple of half decent photos…

of this sport/recreational activity at Torquay…

during a morning in which I was

pursuing my own recreational activity.

My

Sports

 Travel Theme.

~~~~~

Three sports…

I have never tried kite surfing…

but it appears to be…

 a lot of fun and a bit dangerous judging by the helmet.

Nor have I ever been on a surf board…

 But I would just love to be competent enough to

manoeuvre as in the first two images.

However, I think this would be more my style.

 

Some shots of the inaugural

Cadell Evans Road Race.

After several hours of country road racing…

riders have three of four laps of Geelong suburbs

before a finish on the foreshore.

Finally, one shot of the Melbourne Cricket Ground

on the first Monday in June.

Collingwood versus Melbourne.

Also the scene of the

1956 Olympics and the 2006 Commonwealth Games.

Thursday’s Special: July-August-Recap

Weekly Photo Challenge-Elemental

 

~~~~~

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Elemental

~~~~~

My elemental images are all from Torquay this week.I find the sea beautiful…

even when it is calm in my first two image.

 

Generating a bit more energy… 


it provides a playground for…


surfer and photographer alike.


And when it becomes… 

 

too heavy for surfing…


it is a photographer’s delight.

 

 In my opinion.

I don’t know how I missed… 

the Aquamarine challenge.

 

I quickly remembered photos…

which my eyes tell me are good for the post.

All photos taken at Torquay,

near Bell’s Beach, which is where the

Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach,

World Surf League Championship

is held each Easter.
