Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Houses
I don’t have many livable house photos but I do have some houses that used to be someones home in the past. Here is a slideshow of houses past and present for you to enjoy.
I thought for a while what I could do for Lost in Translations Black and White Sunday theme of Texture. I like collecting Begonias as their leaves are so different but is mainly the colour of the leaves that is the draw card for people. I wonder how many look closely at the leaves?
Here is a selection of the few plants I have in my sun room.
This one has lots of little hairs
The leaves have little lumps and bumps
Some leaves grow quite big
Some are small. This one also has fine hairs all over the leaf.
As an afterthought, I should show the some of the leaves in colour
Have a look at all the fences and gates at Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Fences and Gates
Here is my selection of Fences and Gates from around here
One of my favourite gates. A typical Australian house gate from last century
Some farm gates are meant to be sat upon
Guess which side of the old farm fence the cattle are on? The fence keeps them from the railway line too.
Some cattle have no idea what a farm fence is for. I love the spiders webs that are built on the fences and melt away when the morning sun heats up.
This part of the fence and old gates are on my place. I used to love making gates.
That’s the photo challenge from Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Things Found in the Kitchen.
This is a snapshot of a bit of my Things plus some from Margaret Olley’s Kitchen in the Murwillumbah Art Gallery. Have a peek inside of her house which has been rebuilt inside the Art Gallery from a previous blog
This is the cupboard that houses Margaret Olleys crockery. I love Willow Pattern crockery.
Just the cups
My flour tins. I am not sure how many “elfs” I have raised but it appears that Jesus may be watching from behind the flour tins.
MY herbs and spices
My favourite cup and saucer photo from the hotel in Seoul
A first time I have submitted to Leanne Coles MM 4-27: Monochrome Madness
Grass seeds at sunset
A bit closer
I thought of doing a chook series of photos but they are not really pets, they are more a productive unit within the property – food scrap recyclers, egg produces and somewhat a help around the place (have a look here) So instead I have delved back in time to when my girls had pets and of course Benny who died earlier this year.
The rats made such fabulous pets. So many personalities and fun times.
Benny was asleep with his pet dog. He loved that dog and dragged it around the house. You never knew where it would turn up next. He wasn’t impressed with his photo being taken was he?
More pets can be found at Cees
