A few found objects

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #182: Interesting Objects

Some known, some obscure. All guesses considered.

Double dipping at Raspberry Lookout

Debbie’s One Word Sunday: Weather

Today I went for a drive up the Gibraltar Range as there are wild flowers growing at the moment. Of course a drive into the mountains wouldn’t be the same without a stop off at my favourite place, Raspberry Lookout.

This is what you can usually see when you stop at Raspberry Lookout

Today it was like this

I did mention wildflowers didn’t I? There were daisies and other flowers just on the roadside.

As well as Christmas Bells, the ones I had come to see.

These are for Cee’s FOTD

I don’t know if this satisfies Marsha’s and Cee’s PPAC I found it in the very old tree in a notch they cut out to insert planks to get higher when felling a tree many many years ago

I bet you wondered where all this was going didn’t you? Well this is all part of the Lens-Artists Challenge #181: Double Dipping

But did you notice that some of the photos were square so get prepared for Becky’s Square Photo Challenge February: Odd

Your favourite photos for 2021

Lens-Artists Challenge #180 – Favorite Images of 2021
Sunday Stills: 2021 in the #Rear-view Mirror, Nothing Like the Present, The Future is Ours

Here are YOUR favourite photos from 2021 I didn’t include the photos from my Last on the Card photo challenge as it would have made this post way to big even though they were the the ones that had the most views and comments.

In 2021 bushboys world had 71,916 views, from 25,478 visitors from 125 countries, including one view from Antarctica (I suspect as I had Penguin in my tag) and I did 919 posts!!!! I am obsessed don’t you think?

In January the Last on the Card December 2020 was the most popular post with 231 views. The next popular post was a Ragtag Prompt: Mob with this photo. A group of Red-necked Wallabies, in fact all groups of Wallabies and Kangaroos is called a mob.

In February the most popular post was again Last on the Card January 2021 with 214 views. The next was my Happy Valentines Day post (91 views) which had a slideshow of roses and a sweet Rose Robin

In March the most popular post was Last on the Card February 2021 with 242 views. Next was The Green Tree Snake and the Fence which had 99 views. I saw the Green Tree Snake on the neighbours fence as I was driving home and managed a few photos before he slithered off.

Aprils most popular was again Last on the Card with 173 views. Shades of pink, the first of Jude’s Life in Colour challenges, Pink, with 143 views. Your favourite photos was these two Galahs.

Going into May the most viewed with 250 views was the Last on the Card April. The flying penguin and others, in response to Debbie’s One Word Sunday: Wind, had 108 views

In June the most popular with 225 views was Last on the Card May 2021. Next was Sheds I have known with 106 views from a Ragtag Prompt: The Old Shed. The sheds featured are mine plus there was a poem that went with the post.

Onto July and Last on the Card June had 239 views. Next in line was Getting close at home, a Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge with 110 views. I was Cee’s guest host for this challenge so lots of macro photos in the post. It was fun to be a guest host and there were many contributions for my theme. Your favourites were the biscuit tins and the tap

In August Last on the Card July 2021 had 217 views. your next favourite was No more being a wallflower, Marilyn. Inspired by Debbies Six Word Saturday prompt: No more being the wallflower, Mona. I was a bit cheeky with Debbies words for a lot of last years Six Word Saturday prompts.

I chose photos on the wall at the Grand Hyatt, Seoul South Korea

Did September surprise with the most viewed post? No again it was Last on the Card August 2021 with 171 views. My post, From the kitchen window this afternoon, had 161 views. A Ludwig’s Monday Window post

Last on the Card September fell from the rankings for the first time this year. Only 159 views. Your most surprising photo was one I was debating with myself whether I would delete it or not, so I threw it out there for your opinion. What do you think? had an astonishing 227 views and over 100 replies with everyone saying keep it!

Last on the Card again rose to the top with 165 views. Not surprisingly the Monday Portrait 1 November had 131 views and loads of comments with the word cute appearing many times.

We are at the end of 2021 so lets see what December bought. No surprises again the support for my Last on the Card is so encouraging, perhaps I should continue into 2022. What do you think? With 184 views, Last on the Card November 2021 was the top post.

The next top post was a bit of a sad post as it was for my good friend Cee whose sister passed. Her sister loved Daisies so my post was all Daisies for Cee’s sister
