Last on the Card – November 2022

Last Photo for November 2022

Thank you to everyone who contributes their good and not so good photos. Like a lot of people I forget and am surprised at what was the last photo on the four devices I use to take photos.

    So let’s see what you have for November 2022

    The rules are simple:
    1. Post the last photo on your SD card or last photo on your phone for the 30th November.
    2. No editing – who cares if it is out of focus, not framed as you would like or the subject matter didn’t cooperate.
    3. You don’t have to have any explanations, just the photo will do
    4. Create a Pingback to this post or link in the comments
    5. Tag “The Last Photo”

    Here’s mine

    Low down door

    Dan’s Thursday Doors

    Cast iron. Everything is cast iron, the door, the handles, the hinges and fittings. It’s small door down low in a back lane in Lismore. There is still remnants of ashes.

    The door is at the back of a Bakery and this is where the wood fired ovens ashes are removed.

    Rose and the insects

    A story in the day of a rose.

    The rose didn’t mind that insects came to visit. Some were quite welcome although petal munches weren’t encouraged.

    One morning a little green hopper was enjoying the sun after seeing the end of a tiny spider drop to the end of the flower.
    Looking up after hearing this loud noise he exclaimed “What the hell is that!” knowing it wasn’t a bee. “It better know how to land without breaking anything!” he hoped.

    As it grew closer the little green hopper started to think of finding a new flower to hang around in for a while.
    “Someone like that would lower the tone of this fine neighbourhood” he said, “this is a place where every ones knows every one else and we can swap flower scent stories.”
    No one wants to chat about big stinky folk next door

    “Oh no” he sighed, here come the bees” “Once one drops in and heads off to do his waggle dance, the place just fills up with buzzing and flicking pollen” “Not good for my hay fever,” as he sniffled and could feel a huge sneeze coming on. “I’m heading out of here, see ya!”

    See I told you didn’t I. Don’t blame me if you start to sneeze.

    Now and before

    Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge: Close Up or Macro

    I found a small spider having breakfast this morning

    I’ve sorting photos I am still in the mid 2020’s. Can only do a few days at a time. Some of the date folders, (all my photos when I download go in to a misc folder), have a few photos and some days of discovery have over one hundred photos.

    Australian Green Tree Frogs are the happiest looking frogs. This photo is from 28 Sept 2020

    Life of a Crinum flower

    I’ve lost track of the number in my series of the life of a flower so had to have a look. This one will be number ten, a Crinum, which has lots of common names – insert your local name here – it can be found growing along river banks around my part of Australia.

    The flower begins life as a spear that comes up from the middle of the plant. Crinums are bulbs and like the soil to be moist a lot of the time. This time two spears are appearing.

    Finally breaking free into gentle refreshing rain

    Ready to unfurl in the morning sun

    The spear has opened that more spears can appear, one by one the flowers take shape,

    Finally all of the flowers have emerged into the sunshine

    This is an over head. I am standing a few steps up to get it all in shot.

    At last flowers have appeared. The ones from the second spear in the rear, are yet to open

    They have lovely colours

    I tried to get a photo of any insects who visit the flowers. Some tiny bees were there but I didn’t get a photo. But I did find that little spiders set up home

    There are always flowers in the waiting

    After a while they start to decline. They would be short lived vase flowers I think.

    Still a few last lot of buds as more flowers sag

    The browning off is the last. It is funny how quickly they go from here to actually gone. Crinums do drop from the stalk as quickly as they appear

    No apples, but red

    Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Apple Red Colours

    I had to go to town early this morning so I had a chance for a quick walk around after having breakfast. Keeping my eyes out for some apple reds The first thing I saw was this car parked across the road from the cafe. There three other red cars in the street but this one had a red that was hard to replicate with a camera.

    Further down the street, on the way back to pick up my car, I saw the part of a street that has Poinciana trees instead of the usual Jacarandas. This splash of red just after the purple was delightful to see.

    The worse thing was I went into the Green Grocers but didn’t take a camera.Didn’t even think of red apples either 🙄🤪

    Shades of Grafton #13 – In need of love

    Ludwig’s Monday Window

    In my series of windows and their shades, I have shown many styles of window shade. One thing that I am also finding is the poor unfortunate shades that haven’t been looked at let alone loved for many years.

    As most of these shades have been found walking around town, I have Squared them for Becky and her #WalkingSquares

    I love the scalloped shades. These are on a church building. I hope they can fix them before it’s too late

    The windows and the garden looked a treat. Pity no one has looked up

    On a first floor window so it doesn’t look like this one will be seen to anytime soon

    Everything is very much the worse for wear, even the house next door, but lovely painted scallops

    One of the classic designs around Grafton. This one has great structure just needs the top seen to before it all falls apart

    Water Reflections – Abstracts #66

    Jez’s Water Water Everywhere #155

    I enjoy producing these abstracts from reflections on water I find. Sometimes people say they see something in the photo.

    How about with this weeks photo edited images, if you see something or have an interpretation I’d love to hear it. I was going to add titles this week but thought……Nah…..you can have a go, that’s of course if you want to 😥
