The Mid-Week Monochrome – MWM 17: Stone Clad Building
When the City near my place, Grafton, was first settled there was an abundance of sandstone. Important buildings were built using sandstone. This building was one of the first banks in the city.

The May Photo a Day Challenge from Maria at CitySonnet: Silhouette
I have been doing silhouettes for quite some time now. These are my original photos converted to black and white and the outline of the birds redrawn by hand. The black enhanced and filled but not “flood filled” but each pixel or a group of pixels. The same process with the white part of my photograph.
I haven’t done any new ones for a while now as it is rather time consuming. I haven’t applied borders. When the photo is framed it doesn’t need a border but on the web page perhaps. I hope you enjoy my bird silhouettes.
This is the first one I attempted. A White-faced Heron who was sitting on a tree in my garden.
A Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoo flying at my place
The distinctive tail shape of a Spangled Drongo
Another easily identified bird by their tail – a Rainbow Bee Eater
A Golden Whistler singing in the tree
One of my best and most complicated, a Wattlebird on a Banksia flower at Evans Head
The featured image is a Pied Cormorant keeping watch on the dam at my place

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Chutes and Ladders
I found this old wooden ladder in a garage sale. Not really safe for using as a ladder but it makes a great plant stand in the sun room
