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?
Always keep an eye out when you walk about as there are a few things that can bite or sting in the Australian bush.
Isn’t the little garden on the old log just magical?
A few twitters in the garden and there was the Silvereye sitting among the branches.
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.
I hope you enjoyed a quick walkabout with me.
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.
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.
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.
The Daily Post Challenge: Transient – Drifters, nomads, and even the state of impermanence.
What is more transient in nature than a delicate spiders web bejeweled with the mornings dew nestled in the grass, only to disappear with the first rays of the winter sun warming the earth.
