Trees

The word prompt from Bren: Trees

You would think that living in the forest I would have lots of photos of trees. I have some but nothing as wonderful as Brens trees.

time_square_hour_glass

The December theme is TIME. I am sure everyone has found at least one #timesquare, but just in case you are struggling here are some #timesquare ideas;

Timepieces – clocks, watches, sun dials and egg timers
Sayings – Time & tide wait for no man (or woman!), A stitch in time saves nine, Early bird catches the worm, In the nick of time or More haste, less speed
Synonyms – era, moment, season, infinity, interval, lifetime and age
Out of the box – nighttime, downtime, pastime and mealtimes!

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.

The Grafton Bridge

The word prompt from Nancy’s Photo a Week Challenge: Bridges

“The Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Clarence River Bridge have much in common. They were both completed in 1932, both were engineering marvels of their time and both linked road and rail from north to south. Prior to devoting himself to the Harbour Bridge, J.J.C. Bradfield supervised the design drawings of the Grafton Bridge. “The nickname “the bendy bridge”, results from the upper road carriage needing to detour from above the railway line to the streets below.”

A second bridge is being constructed as the old bridge cannot handle the amount of road traffic now-a-days. You can see bits of the new bridge preparations in the background.
