The old house

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.

White-headed pigeons

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?

Odd Balls

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.

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
