Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Couples, Twins, Two of Anything
I love my nature photos so I looked for a some bird photos for this challenge.
White-throated Honeyeaters at the little pot birdbath
Two Whipbirds on the Wisteria
Two Seagulls at the beach
Two Terns with their windswept “hair”
Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Lights
Here are my lights
The tripod light in the hotel in Orange – the town in Australia not the colour or the fruit.
The neon sign from the Queensland Art Gallery. I don’t know who the artist was.
The lights on the tables in the Victoria Tea Room in Sydney
The beautiful Art Deco light in a hotel in Genoa
I took some photos of some old cars for Black & White Sunday: Traces of the Past – well not exactly the whole car just some bits and pieces that I found interesting.
The radiator cap and badge of a Chevrolet
I did seem to think the radiator cap looked a bit surprised when I took the photo
The wheels of the MG were painstakingly polished
The Studebaker gave a bit of a smile
I love this old pulley on my besties verandah too. It was raining so I just wandered the verandah looking for a subject to capture for the challenge before I remembered the cars.
Being from Australia, I guess it was about time I used the Sydney Opera House in a blog challenge juxtaposed with an old shed from near my place in the country.

The old shed and the cow
Have a look at the other photographers contributions to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Buildings
I love taking photos of windows especially when I am travelling. These two windows are in a place called Split in Croatia I took quite a few years ago but they came to mind when I saw this photo challenge.
Many more windows can be seen at Lost in Translation
So many subjects to chose from but the Blue-banded Bee is one of my favourites

The Letters Y or Z did pose a bit of a challenge especially Z but here goes…..
A while ago, I did a seven day yacht trail down the Clarence River from Grafton to Iluka with a number of other sailors. This was my first time sailing. We managed to stop at a number of pubs on the way.
This the yacht at sunset on a peaceful days end,
Near the end the weather had turned and the sky darkened at sunset
I had a lot of the little Yellow-faced Honeyeater photos to chose from
The hard one was Z. Luckily I remembered the flower photos and dug out this lovely Zinnia. It is a pale yellow variety.
See what other people found for their Y or Z photos

Thank you Cee for making me really have a good think about this challenge. The letter W has many possibilities but the letter X!!!!
I though of the many window photos I have so it was hard to cut them down to just a few. These are from my travels in Italy.
I love the old window shutters.
Windows with window sills filled with flowers are lovely.
Some window just have one container of flowers
Now for the letter X. How many of you used to get a torch and do an X-ray of your fingers when you were kids?

Cee’s Photo Challenge using the letters U or V. We are getting closer to the end of the alphabet and these letters really had me thinking.
The promotion women walking through the streets of Rome in 2012 with their Umbrellas
Every seagull needs an Umbrella on a hot Australian day at the beach
What Vehicle would be the most appropriate for the letter V!!! Only a VW would do. This is my besties sons which one day will be resuscitated.
