Wordless Wednesday – 15 March
Come on my road
Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #240: The Road (most often) Taken
John wrote “This week’s theme is metaphoric–and not about a physical road. For this week’s challenge, I want you to think of your favorite type or style of photography as the road you’ve chosen to take most often. For me, it’s landscape photography as it fits so well with my traveling soul. My examples are all landscapes, but I want to see in what style you like to photograph best.”
Where do I take this prompt without being over the top. I have been thinking about what to post and why, which I do find hard and this is why it has taken me a while to think about my photos and my road.
I am leaving this lot in a bunch so you don’t have to scroll forever 😂
Left to right, top to bottom.
Row 1 – My road to get home especially after going to the Raspberry Lookout & photographing Paper Daisies
Row 2 – Flowers one of my favourite things to photograph as well the birds around my place The little Yellow Robin is a lot of peoples favourite as well as the colourful parrots like this Eastern Rosella
Row 3 – More birds, Blue-faced Honeyeater and Rainbow Lorikeet who enjoy snacking on Bottlebrush flowers and Rainbow Bee Eaters looking splendid on the branches of a dead tree
Row 4 – Of course there has to be insects and a bit of macro. A Scarlet Jezebel Butterfly in a Honey Gem Grevillea, a Native bee my favourite name, Teddy Bear Bee and a Native Stingless Bee flying into a Day Lily
Row 5 – More Macro A close up of a Scarlet Jezebel Butterfly, Tree Fern frond about to uncurl and another favourite to try to get, water drops.
Some new things I have been doing over the past couple of years which is a lot of fun.
Of course my water abstracts I create for Jez’s Water Water Everywhere
There is always a face to find for Monday Portrait. Cattle seem to be a lot of peoples favourites
Dipping in and out of Monochrome
Creating for Silent Sunday where I have been using photos of churches or religious items

Terri’s Sunday Stills: Out of This #World
So much of what I see and find could be out of this world. What do you think?
Here is a quick selection.
Some flowers have another world feel to them like this Lilli Pilli flower.
Reflections on water give the ordinary something else
or give a ghostly image
The insect world always is otherworldly
A hatching Cicada is even stranger that the cicada or shell it leaves behind
Caterpillars are so weird as they munch their way through their short lives. This caterpillar one day will be a beautiful Orchard Swallowtail Butterfly
A tiny Jewel Spider is one of the most amazing looking spiders on my place. It is around 10-15mm
Another jewel, the beauty of the Common Crow Butterfly chrysalis
The amazing structure and colours of Dragonflies lovely to see zooming about but up close they are so different
Of course fungi are the most strange and out of this world plants I could have done a whole post just on fungi. Finger Fungi are the most weird
Truly out of this world
Congratulations, you have just scrolled through the bushboys world post number 5,000!!!
This made me look at my stats which I haven’t for ages. Thank you to the 2,330 people who follow my blog, I didn’t realise there were that many but we know that the number of real bloggers and people is much less.
From 2014 with 4,372 views, 77 likes and 25 comments to 2022 with 74,645 views, 45,687 likes and 19,953 comments
For those who may want to go back in time, here is post number one. I don’t know why the stats for 2012 & 2013 aren’t there maybe there’s a ten year limit on stats??

Something a bit different from what I usually post but I have included a song to go with your scrolling.
This is from my Corel PaintShop Pro Ultimate 2023. An effect named Expressive Blend
A sense of order

Wordless Wednesday – 1 March
For once I can’t go wordless. This is the actual photo taken through the bus window at Monaco.
I was looking for doors and found this photo which I didn’t delete. One of those “that’ll come in handy one day” photos.
Does it appeal to you in some way?
