Teddy Bears, Dolls Toys

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge Teddy Bears Dolls Toys had me thinking what is the most interesting here.

The girls have left home but every Christmas I get out the Christmas toys who take their place guarding the box of Christmas presents.

Many people may know that I also have an elephant collection (see my blog) So it is only fitting that Humphrey gets involved in Christmas as well

Meet Brendan, the Brush Turkey who loves to eat Pecans. He comes into the yard and is not afraid of people but will make sure you don’t get too close.

Vision

The Thursday Photo Challenge from Lost in Translation is Vision

Today, I took a walk on my property mainly to pull out weeds but as usual had my camera with me, just in case. When walking about you have to have vision as so many things happen or can be seen. Here is a snapshot of what I saw today just a few meters from my house.

I love finding things as I walk. Isn’t this small blue rock unusual?
170622_blog challenge_vision_rock

Always keep an eye out when you walk about as there are a few things that can bite or sting in the Australian bush.
170622_blog challenge_vision_bullant

Isn’t the little garden on the old log just magical?
170622_blog challenge_vision_moss_fungi

A few twitters in the garden and there was the Silvereye sitting among the branches.
170622_blog challenge_vision_silvereye

A flash of yellow caught my eye as it flew past and the Golden Whistler landed on a branch nearby.

A jump among the leaves caught my attention and the little Broad Palmed Frog was looking at me as well.

Music

The theme for Franks Tuesday Photo Challenge is Music

What a difficult challenge as I have had music in my life ever since I was born. There was always music playing in the house, whether it was vinyl records or my Mother playing piano. This has been the source of my inspiration as I have been playing guitar since I was about 12 or 13 I think with my best mate Greg, since passed. All through school with the mates in the music class, Steven and Martin playing when we could. Yep Rock ‘n’ Roll of course!! Then with my best mate Michael we would play all the time. Nowadays I just pick up one of guitars and as I live in the bush, can turn it up and belt out a tune or two, mainly Rolling Stones songs.

Here is my first electric guitar and the last one I bought.
170622_blog challenge_music_guitars

The person I have had in my life since I was four, David, an artist, drew this poster for me when we were still in school. I found it a few years ago, had it framed and it now sits on my loungeroom wall with pride.
170622_blog challenge_music_poster

I took these photos a few moments ago but have a wealth of music to choose from. I have almost nine hundred CD’s and hundreds of vinyl records plus music book and magazines so I had to limit myself as you can well understand.

Focus

The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge this week is Focus

One of my favourite things is to have some photos not quite in focus or have an element that has a sharp edge whilst the rest of the photo has a soft focus.

I found the shadows on the leaf of the Birds-nest Fern interesting. What can you see?

Which one is your favourite?

An old joke I found on Focus

Twin sisters in St. Luke’s Nursing Home were turning one hundred years old. The editor of the local newspaper told a photographer to get over there and take pictures of the two 100 year old twins.

One of the twins was hard of hearing and the other could hear quite well.

Once the photographer arrived he asked the sisters to sit on the sofa. The deaf sister said to her twin, “WHAT DID HE SAY?”

“WE GOTTA SIT OVER THERE ON THE SOFA!”, said the other.

“Now get a little closer together,” said the cameraman.

Again, “WHAT DID HE SAY?”

“HE SAYS SQUEEZE TOGETHER A LITTLE.” So they wiggled up close to each other.

“Just hold on for a bit longer, I’ve got to focus a little,” said the photographer.

Yet again, “WHAT DID HE SAY?”

“HE SAYS HE’S GONNA FOCUS!”

With a big grin the deaf twin shouted out, “OH MY GOD – BOTH OF US?”

Thursdays Special: S-Curve

Oh bugger!!! I went 5kms to a neighbours place this afternoon and thought, oh good Paulas photo challenge of curves. That’s that’s right curves not S-Curves. Well I got quite engrossed in some of the plants in the garden and the old wagon (which will come in handy for later photo challenges) that I have a few photos from the afternoon for this challenge that I am going to use anyway (sorry Paula)

lets start with a sort of S:Curve. The wagon hook – almost an S
170615_blog challenge_curves_wagon hook

The chains on the wagon – C’mon…use your imagination…see the S
170615_blog challenge_curves_wagon chain

The wagon wheel with a tantalising rust and the lovely old wood with a bit of yellow fungus (he says trying to distract the viewer from the S:Curve topic)
170615_blog challenge_curves_wagon wheel01

Look! Isn’t the wagon wheel fabulous the way the wood and metal Curve in unison and the old wooden spokes are drawn into the central hub where the fungus becomes a lovely orange/red and the steel band fixes the wheel to the axle.
170615_blog challenge_curves_wagon wheel02

Aren’t the curves on the cactus wonderful. Their spectacular colours that just blend and enhance their curves.
170615_blog challenge_curves_cactus01

At the end of the day, after a cup of tea and biscuit, on the drive home, the sunset was a superb yellow colour don’t you think (again distracting the viewer) as the sun set over the curves of the distant hillside.

Robin takes a bath

A few days ago the weather was cool and rainy. I felt uninspired, so it was time to get about and take some photos. I walked about the verandahs at my besties place, camera in hand trying to find that photo or two that would satisfy. From the trees and shrubs in the garden I could hear birds chatting away.

Suddenly I spied a flash of yellow as it zoomed through the garden heading for the bird bath. Camera at the ready, I slowly moved along the verandah, already hearing splashing from the bird bath.

A little Eastern Yellow Robin, one of my favourite birds, was at the bird bath darting in and out of the cold water.

Thursdays Special: Portrait vs Landscape

The old abandoned cottage just down the road from me was the home a good friend. He built the cottage from materials on his property. When he moved out the poor old place just fell to rack and ruin. Here is his fire place he used to cook on. I took these photos before the new owners moved in and I am not sure whether it is still standing.

The portrait is good for showing the full picture especially if the image you want is tall.

This was May

Ever so late doing my “this is what I found in May.”

So many things have needed doing and my time has been spent doing the many Photo Challenges, which I seem to be obsessed with as they give the opportunity to showcase your photos and techniques and at the same time see what other bloggers from around the world are doing. I love showing my part of this world or some photos of my travels. I hope you have enjoyed these Photo Challenges as much as I have.

OK……….on to my May. May is show time in my town. What I love (as many of you know) are chooks so I always go to the poultry pavilion when I go to the Grafton Show. Here are my favourites from the show.

My Street

This is what happens in my street…..or road actually. I liked the prompt from Dutch Goes The Photo as my street isn’t like anyone elses street, OK perhaps a few.

This is what can happen in my street. Occasionally some of the farmers in my area need to move cattle from one place to another. This time it was a rural event called a Camp Draft where riders try to move cattle in a set pattern.

Here is My Street
