Square in September #10

This is the last day of September so my last photo for Beckys Square in September. I hope everyone has enjoyed the flowers in square format as much as I have. Thanks Becky for doing the photo challenge.

Another Australian native flower. This time it is a beautiful red flower from a eucalypt tree

Lines and Angles: Grafton Bridge

For Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Lines and Angles I would like to show you the bridge in my town. The rail line is straight but the bridge has a number of bends, giving the local name of the Bendy Bridge. It was built in 1932 and the design is unique to Australia as it has a it has a railway line on the lower deck and the road is the upper deck. It used to open until the water main was built onto the structure and shipping stopped going up river, now the bridge no longer opens. There is another bridge being built along side the old bridge as in the mornings and afternoons there is quite a build up of traffic crossing the river. Large vehicles and buses have a hard time negotiating the bends and traffic coming in the opposite direction usually stop to allow the larger vehicles get around the bends.

Some of the steel used came from Scotland

The walkway with the rail line on the left. There is another walkway on the other side. The crane on the right is where the new bridge is being built.

Square in September #8

Another Australian native flower for Becky’s Square in September.

I found this Hyacinth Orchid while walking about my property in February this year. I think it only grows in one place as I have not seen another growing any where else. I love finding something special.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Letter F – Topic is Fun or Flowers

I could do fun but I have been doing so many flowers of late I think I may do a recap of  all some of my flowers from the past. Some may include an insect or two or perhaps a bird because I can.

Square in September #7

I am enjoying joining Becky with her challenge. Maybe you could have a flower to contribute in square format or just have a look at the other flowers in Square in September

I thought I would have another Australian Native flower, the Purple Fringe Lily which is found in the hind dunes and coastal heath land. It is a small flower and easily missed when walking along the bush tracks.

Black and White Sunday: After and Before

I love seeing the results of other peoples after and befores on Lost in Translation. This photo challenge allows a bit of creativity as well. This time I have chosen a photo that I was thinking of taking in black and white at the time but didn’t for some reason. Now is my chance to see it as I saw it in a church in Dijon.
