Cars Trucks and Motorcycles

Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Cars Trucks and Motorcycles

I have had a look around my folders to find some Trucks
The old truck that has been part of my street forever it seems

The truck on the street in Murwillumbah

One of the smallest trucks I have ever seen. On the street in Dijon

Actually this truck in Rome is the smallest

It’s time for the Motorcycles
In my past life, I used to work on the tack at the motorcycle races as a flag marshal. One of the best jobs as you are right beside the track. These are from the mid seventies. Yes I always had my camera with me in those days too except the photos were selective as it was film and cost a bit to get processed. These photos are in colour and scanned to black and white

Aperitivo

For Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge using the letters Ap I have dug out my photos of Aperitivo from my Italian adventure in 2015.

“Perhaps our favorite Italian tradition is the aperitivo, a drink/light meal that takes place at the end of the workday as a kind of warm up to dinner.” from The Art of Aperitivo

52 Weeks Photo Challenge: Week 36 – Simple Things

I love the idea of Simple Things.

Like a little Super Fairy Wren looking for a snack

Days end in a cafe in my home town

Or the Simple Thing of finding that place to have a rest in my garden

Look at the Simple Things that other have found

Black and White Sunday – Through

What a challenge! I couldn’t think of anything then a bit of inspiration kicked in which led to too many ideas.

Looking through to a garden in Rome.
