With a title like that for 52 weeks photo challenge the sky’s the limit.
A little poem to start
From the top of the pine tree the Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoo can see all the empty space around
The Square-tailed Kite was being harassed by the Friarbird
Empty space abounds for the Jacky Winter perched on the old tree branch
The Wedged-tailed Eagles getting away with their lunch. The one on the right has a Water Dragon trailing from its feet.
The Ibis soared in the sky.
The Black-shouldered Kite has the perfect perch to survey his surroundings.
The Cormorant has many an empty space. One of my projects is to make some silhouettes of birds.
Where could there be more empty space than…..weellll……Space
What a photo challenge!!!! How many photos have Red, Green and Blue colours? I am sure I can find some as I enjoy taking photos of birds and many Australian birds are quite colourful.
But first the jumping castle at the markets certainly has the colours.
The Chinese Lantern flower with a background of leaves and sky.
A Blue-faced Honeyeater and the Bottlebrush flower
A Rainbow Lorikeet among the Bottlebrush blossoms
The Orchard Butterfly enjoys my garden.

The feathers of a rooster who used to strut about my place. (More about the rooster here)

Cee’s fun foto challenge Winter – Water
Looking through my photos, my winter photos don’t really reflect winter at all. I guess winter here isn’t the same elsewhere. I don’t get snow, only two or three frosty days and it rarely gets to 0 degrees. So I am just doing water for this challenge.
I like to photograph water especially when there are interesting reflections on the waters surface.
The sunset adds to the wonderful colours.
The ripples and colours make a certain mysterious affect.
And sometimes a ghostly visage makes an appearance
Late afternoon on a cloudy day and a bit of a breeze with water lilies covering the water surface
Every now and then the part of Australia I live in has floods. The Clarence River can be spectacular when the floodwaters come. This is the River gauge showing how high the water rises.
Here are what some buildings look like. This is the tower on top of the boat shed.
At least it is dry in the pub
Here are the steps going up to the pub when the water isn’t covering them. The bottom of the steps are about 1 meter above normal river level.
This what the Clarence River looks like near my place many kilometers upstream
The floodwaters empty into the ocean creating foam that washes onto the beaches and rocks.
It’s Tuesdays Photo Challenge from Frank.
Who left their basket behind?
Who is hiding among the leaves?
“Hey Steve……have you seen Peter”?
Who is lurking among the CDs?
Lost in Translation photo challenge – Juxtaposition
In Sydney Australia, you can see many example of where the old meets the new. The old building, Scots Church has a new building built above it which has 148 apartments which allows the new to hover above the old.
In another part of Sydney, the inner city suburb Newtown has a range of eclectic people and shops. Here we have an outdoor/indoor room on the awning of the building.
One of the contentious issues in Australia is that refugees are kept in detention until their applications are processed. It is believed that children should not be held in these camps. I found this protest in the street in Ballina. a town not far from my place. It is a sad photo when you think about the meaning.
So many ideas pop into my head for Cee’s Which Way photo challenge I decided to do something different this time.
The Tram at Glenelg in Adelaide South Australia
Flying high above the clouds
A while ago we were in Lismore, a town nearby, and I just too some random photos of some things in a park. Some were just the thing for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge
A close up of a World War 2 gun.
A bell that is encased in a metal surround. As you can see, it still doesn’t stop the pigeons.
Looking for the right photos for this weeks Cee’s Black and White photo challenge I thought I would use some of my favourite Australian bird photos and one reptile.
A Parrot – A Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoo
Just an Osprey walking along the beach
A parrot about to get a dunking in the bird bath
The Python who was removed from the chook house before it could eat any of the hens
The after and before photos of a little Scarlet Honeyeater, the smallest of Australias honeyeaters, in an Australian native tree, a Pink Euodia. Scarlet Honeyeaters whizz around my garden like red jewels flashing in the sun.
