Purchased for our first born, circa 1989-90...

Thirty plus years later,

it looks nothing as good as this,

but is still a prized possession.

Cee-Black-White Challenge-100-Paces


Cee’s Black and White Challenge:

100 Paces.



A few weeks ago my car needed a service and

as usual to fill in some time and gain some exercise,

I set off on a walk around Geelong’s foreshore,

camera in hand.

foreshore_1532Any part of the CBD in Geelong is not far from the beaches

and so, on this early October day

I found myself  wandering along the foreshore

of Western Beach.

Cunningham Pier, which is in the extreme right of this photo,

is the line of demarcation between the

Eastern Beach and Western Beach.

foreshore_1492As with most beach fronts there is the obligatory

trees, lawn, picnic table and barbeques

for tourists and locals alike.

foreshore_1545Also a drinking tap to alleviate dehydration and…

foreshore_1522at this time of year nature is telling us that spring

is just around the corner, or has sprung!

foreshore_1493I love beach areas, sea, not sand, and

in the early hours of the morning,

before the rest of the world before

the hustle and bustle reaches its peak,

Corio Bay is at its best.

Cee-Black-White Challenge-Patterns


Cee’s Black and White Challenge:




My Black and White patterns were all found on Geelong’s Eastern Beach precinct.
pattern_1453I was really excited when I found this photo.

A pattern…then I  realised that it was nearly black when I took the photo.

It is part of a palm tree trunk…flipped 90 degrees.

pattern_1451A board walk…again nearly black and white toning.

pattern_1457My destination looms.  The Wharf Shed…

and a belated Father’s Day lunch and Sunday outing,

nearly a month ago, from the boys.

Father’s Day is the first Sunday in September, in Australia.


Another shot taken with patterns in minds, though not much…
