One Morning on the Power lines

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge (among others):  Power lines and Black and White

The day was just beginning. As usual, the birds were singing from the trees, flying about, some collecting insects on the wing others strolling about the garden finding things to have for breakfast.

Once their morning rituals had been observed, it was time to chill out and discuss what the day ahead had planned. This morning, the chosen meeting place for the Mud Larks, Magpie Larks or more commonly called Pee Wees, was to be on the power lines where all could observe the surroundings.

This morning, some gathered as agreed, a flurry of small black and white settled onto the power lines.
But wait, something doesn’t seem right.

“Hey…….you blokes………..who is the big bloke over there?” “I don’t know” as they looked from one to the other.

“I don’t know either, but I’ll get rid of him!”  “This swoop will see him off.”

The Street Lights of London

The word prompt from Nancy: Street Lights

I went on a search of my folders for some lovely Australian street lights when I came across a few I photographed in London a couple of years ago. These became an obsession so I have ended up just having some street lights of London.

This is my minimalist view of the topic, by not making the topic the focus of the photo.

A bit of the old London with the new.

I really like these lights.

Not strictly a street light but I haven’t seen many lights with a crown and a guard before.
