The Old Bus

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Public Transportation

The old bus,
discarded,
left in the dunes.
Ravaged by salt
by time
and age.
One time
carried passengers,
to work,
to the pictures,
to the beach,
back home.
Lovers
stealing a kiss
in the back seat.
A woman with
groceries
A man reads
the paper
A child kicks
the seat in front
All taken
on a journey
on a bus
in the past.
A bus
who once
was important,
now a sad,
lonely life
surrounded by
vegetation.

Balance: Sculptures by the Sea

The word prompt from Jenn at Traveling At Wits End: Balance

I try to go to a wonderful outdoor art exhibition held on the cliff edge and parks on Sydney’s southern beaches called Sculptures By The Sea. Here are some great sculptures I photographed over the years that have good balance

A little blue

The word prompt from Nancy for a Photo a Week Challenge: Blue

We sat enjoying our cup of tea at the lookout near Mallanganee, when from the bush below the lookout he came. He hopped about for a while then called his Jenny Wren. We loved their show for quite a while. He even sat on a post to show off a bit. Nothing more wonderful than being given a show by a Superb Fairy Wren.
