Murals from Toowoomba

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Murals

I had a look around for some black and white murals in my folders and couldn’t find any. I have converted some from my stay with my daughter in Toowoomba earlier this year. I was surprised with the amount of street art in the city. Here is a small selection.

Some Rocks I Found

The Ragtag Daily Prompt Sunday: Rock

I have found rocks in my travels around where I live.  Let’s start with some from my place. I love to find these blue rocks when I walk about my property.

The most wonderful rock I have found at my place is this hand axe. Goodness knows how old it is as the indigenous people have transversed through here for thousands of years. When I picked it up and held it, it just sat in my hand easily. I bet the bloke who lost it was rather annoyed.170519_traces of the past_stone axe

This is the rock that he used to make the hand axe

OK off my place and onto the road. Down at the beach is a great place to find rocks. I also like to find faces in things. Can you see the dog?

A rock on a fence post. No, I don’t know either.

Rocks also serve a purpose. A Long-necked Tortoise likes to sun himself on a rock that looks like a Tortoise

This is one of the early songs I loved to play on guitar. Sounds of Silence was the first LP I bought with my own money.

I love this live version
