The word prompt from Franks Tuesday Photo Challenge: Toys
Here are a few of the toys from around my place. Some I have found in Op-shops or at markets or garage sales.
A cute little tip truck a Grandpa probably made for a child.
This tractor was perhaps a school project.
A wonderful home made train.
The pull along horse and rider that my girls played with. I can’t remember where it came from.
The metal truck was my truck from when I was a toddler. My Mum said that I used to sit on it was push myself around the house.
I hope you liked my toys
The word prompt from city sonnet: Gulls
The Gulls flew while the Cormorants just bobbed about hunting fish
Soaring majestically in the sky
Or hurriedly leaving the beach in a tangle of wings
Or just standing at the waters edge enjoying the sand between the toes.
Finding a shady spot on the beach on a warm day
Or being cheeky
Enjoying the morning sun
Or a surprise Gull – an Australian Gull Butterfly
Franks Tuesday Photo Challenge: Row
Black Bean Trees, Castanospermum australe, are growing on my place. The seed pods can measure up to 100mm in length. Most have three to five beans to a pod. Yes beans in a row.
Some pods have just a couple. The Black Beans are quite big weighing around 30 grams.
The leaves and beans are toxic to animals and humans in the raw state. It is great to make tiny canoes from the pods and race them down the river.
Some flowers of the Black Bean Tree. Flowers in a row.
The theme from Terri: #Macro or Close-up Photography; Is there a difference?
I enjoy getting in close to our world, exploring the small details in nature. Here’s a few photos for your enjoyment.
Macro – The face of a fly
Macro – The miniature world of fungi and moss
Close-up – Getting in close with an Ibis.
Close-up – with a Pelican
Macro – A rivet head on the Grafton Bridge
Close-up – the rust on a chain.
Close-ups or Macros? What do you think?
The word prompt from Nancy’s Photo a Week Challenge: Neglected
The Ragtag Daily Prompt: Reflection
A branch upon the shore
Placed by waves
The night before.
Around the wood
In a place
Where ancients stood.
Their time has past
To be never more
Branches still wash
Upon the shore

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge Week 1: Photo Geometry, bushes, window, brick, curtain, green, tan, wall, building, dark red, tree
What a selection Cee has chosen for us to pick from. I think it may be several posts if I get the inspiration. This post started off as Geometry but a few Windows appeared.
Some geometry from inside an art work in the Centre Pompidou Paris
Another art work from the Centre Pompidou – some neon geometry
Once I thought of geometry, along came some stained glass windows as well. A church in Lyon France
The wonderful stained glass windows from the Segrada Familia in Barcelona
