Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge is In The Distance. I looked at landscapes and other photos that felt like they were within the topic, In the Distance. How far is in the distance? Is it from here to there?
These are the mountains on the way to my place. I can’t remember the blogger I was talking to about sepia, but I thought I would give it a go
I reckon the Sun is in the distance
Same view but in sepia and showing more of the distance
I am sure the Moon is in the distance.
I love our Moon especially when it smiles at me In the Distance.
I went to the optometrist a while ago.
She asked “What seems to be the problem?”
I told her that I had trouble seeing distance.
She took me outside, pointed to the sky and asked “What’s that?”
Of course I said “It’s the Sun.”
She then said “How far to you want to friggin’ see?”
I have many bird photos. One photo was a bird against the sky and was silhouette like. This led me to take some of my colour bird photos, convert to black and white. From there the process was to draw around the outlines in black, fill the bits that weren’t black enough and the white was recoloured whiter.
I hope you enjoy the Shapes slideshow of my Bird Silhouettes
Thank you Paula for a great theme for Black & White Sunday
Another fabulous topic from Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge. My take on the topic are from a few places in our world. How are the Indoor walkway, Hallways Elevators in your world. See some other wonderful photos here

For Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Lines and Angles I would like to show you the bridge in my town. The rail line is straight but the bridge has a number of bends, giving the local name of the Bendy Bridge. It was built in 1932 and the design is unique to Australia as it has a it has a railway line on the lower deck and the road is the upper deck. It used to open until the water main was built onto the structure and shipping stopped going up river, now the bridge no longer opens. There is another bridge being built along side the old bridge as in the mornings and afternoons there is quite a build up of traffic crossing the river. Large vehicles and buses have a hard time negotiating the bends and traffic coming in the opposite direction usually stop to allow the larger vehicles get around the bends.
A bit of the steel structure
Some of the steel used came from Scotland
The little office where the operator operated the controls to open the bridge.

The walkway with the rail line on the left. There is another walkway on the other side. The crane on the right is where the new bridge is being built.

I love seeing the results of other peoples after and befores on Lost in Translation. This photo challenge allows a bit of creativity as well. This time I have chosen a photo that I was thinking of taking in black and white at the time but didn’t for some reason. Now is my chance to see it as I saw it in a church in Dijon.
Which photo do you prefer?
The photo challenge from Cee is Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Back of Things What do I have the most photos of….yep you guessed it – birds. I did have to stop myself. I didn’t realise how many backs of birds I have! Here is my selection of the backs of birds for the challenge.
The Wonga Pigeon had enough of me so it was “off I go”
A Catbird sat high in the tree not caring that I wanted a photo or two.
A Blue-faced Honeyeater looking for a new blossom to get a bit of nectar.
Just an Osprey talking a casual stroll along the beach
The wonderful Emerald Dove.
Scarlet Honeyeaters are so small and acrobatic when snacking on a Lilli Pilli.
It’s the Mundane Monday Challenge. I was in a shop and apparently no one wanted to buy these shoes. Discarded. All alone. Tossed onto the floor. Dejected that lay waiting for that special person to buy them. I wonder if anyone did….
An interesting photo challenge from Cee: Black & White Candid Shots. Here is a couple from my collection

The amazing art work from Russia in the Venice Biennale in 2015. The eyes actually moved. When this bloke left the room the eyes followed him.
