Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Structure
This is what remains of the first house I built on my property. It was built as a temporary structure until I was able to build a proper house.
The structure is poles (from trees cut down on the property) in the ground with fence palings as the outside walls and a corrugated iron roof.
The only part left standing is the laundry and bathroom. This is the only part of the old house that has a concrete floor and is now home to Old Smoky, the farm ute.
The windows were second hand as was the roof
I dismantled most of the structure to use in the new house. Some bits had to stay as they held up the roof
It was raining when I decided to take the photos. Maybe one day I might do another post about the old house.

See a crowd.
See a face.
Someone is always looking.
Are they looking at you?
Are they looking at you?
I just had to do another post for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Birds
The word prompt from Frank at Dutch goes the Photo for the Tuesday Photo Challenge: Shape
A spiky green shape
Soft green shape on the forest floor
A tropical green shape
Green shapes on a tree
Water drops making green shapes on the palm leaf
Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge topic: Birds
I think I may have a photo or two of a bird or two I could use for this photo challenge. I took these a couple of days ago. It’s just a few so no need to get set in for a while.
A flurry of wings sounded as the large White-headed Pigeon alighted on the bird bath with a watchful gaze.
A short while later, a young White-headed Pigeon flew in, it’s grey plumage starting to turn white.
The parent bird was vigilant as the young one took a drink.
Such a lovely looking bird don’t you think?
Time again for the wonderful Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge where the simple photo of “I wonder why I took that”, turns into something for everyone else to say “Why did you take that???” Enjoy lots of other Odd Balls at Cees
Another creation by my artist bestie. A beach plant basket to carry some of the abundant pumice that had washed up on the beach.
I found an odd ball on the carpet
The Daily Post word prompt: Sweet
What could be sweeter than an Eastern Yellow Robin sitting on a garden chair looking for an insect in the garden
Perhaps a Red-browed Firetail Finch having a bath on a hot day
Or a Variegated Wren contemplating having a dip
Or a Grey Fantail splashing about
Or is it a tiny Brown Thornbill enjoying a splash around
Did you have a Sweet favourite?
Cee’s Odd Ball photo challenge is a great outlet for those photos that have that “special” quality. Drop into Cees place and check them out
The flamingo was floating
Ever get the feeling you are being watched?
Just a bear, a beach ball and a hamburger
