Masked

Debbie’s quotation inspired image

“Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth.”

Oscar Wilde

If anyone has encountered a Masked Lapwing, they will give you the truth. Come near my nest and look out. Trouble is Masked Lapwings, or Plovers as they are generally known, lay their eggs anywhere they want. I have seen nests in the middle of football fields or on the grass verge on the side of a road.

They will defend their right to be casual egg layers quite violently. They have spurs on their wings which can be quite nasty if attacked.

Perspective #1

Becky’s Square Photo Challenge: Square Perspective

Here’s what it’s all about

“To join us create your square post, and include a pingback to one of my daily square posts and use the theme’s tag – SquarePerspectives. I’d love it if you also left a comment, conversations with you make the challenge so much fun.

Now to get you started here are a few perspective definitions;

  • Art – the method by which solid objects drawn or painted on a flat surface are given the appearance of depth and distance.
  • Geometry – the way that objects appear smaller when they are further away and the way parallel lines appear to meet each other at a point in the distance.
  • Point of View – a particular way of considering (looking at) something or the capacity to view things in their relative importance
  • Vista – seeing something over distance or time

I will be sharing a square daily and I’d love it if you did the same. You can though join us weekly or even just pop in occasionally with your squares. The frequency of your squares depends on you and your blog. The only absolute rule for joining in is that your main photograph must be square in shape!”

I am having my whole property fenced as the devastating fire last December burnt out most of my fences, around 2kilometers. I haven’t taken any photos of what’s been done so far unfortunately. This afternoon I thought that my unfinished front fence was a good start to Becky’s Square Photo Challenge.

Family photo

The Wednesday Challenge: Family Photo

Susan and myself invite you to locate that one mysterious photo and write us your thoughts on it. Remember the photo is a flash back to the past and not a recent one of yourself or family ( unless of course you have an early photo of yourself which is welcomed).

Well the words mysterious photo for the challenge made me think……..

Here is a rare family photo of the Red-necked Wallabies in my garden. It is not often that I see a Female and her Joey with a Male so close together.

Last photo for June 2020
