Maria’s Photo a Day Challenge – May 7: Park
Patti from the Lens-Artists sent us on a scavenger hunt to hunt for things that are Red
I had to go to town yesterday so I set out to find a few things from around town instead of my usual combing my place for bits of red among the nature that abounds here at times.
Here is what I found
A red post and a fortuitous red car driving pst
A red motorbike at a service station with bits of red everywhere
A red ute livening up the street
I just happened to be near the Fire Station when the truck came out of the station
OK I did lie. I had to include the miniature red Hibiscus in my garden that are just flowering as there has been good rainfall over the past two weeks
This months square challenge from Becky: Blue
The theme for July is ‘blue‘, and as always it is totally up to you how you interpret the square theme but whatever you decide to do, please remember there is a rule if you want to part of the Square Gang and be sure your photos are square so you can make it into the gallery.
Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Wheels
Today, I had a major embarrassment. My guests arrived and parked their car in the driveway in front of the house. We went inside and had a lovely morning tea and conversation.
After a while I went outside to make sure my garden wasn’t suffering in the heat of the day. Whilst outside I noticed some unusual activity. I snuck inside and grabbed my camera just to make sure what I saw was actually happening right there, in front of my eyes.
How do you tell your guests that there is someone having sex on their car, right in the driveway right in front of my house?
It’s Which Way time again
“Which way are you going? Hop in. I’ll drive”
The word prompt from Bren at ryanphotography: Sepia
I am going back to the Isle of Brac, Croatia to put a bit of sepia onto a few photos as Brac has a certain old world charm. I hope you enjoy my efforts in applying sepia toning with a couple using vignette as well.

A tall masted schooner in the harbour
An old rock wall in the village
One of the many vehicles that are used to drive around the island. Yes it does still go

Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge
Where are you going?
Where have you been?
To the future.
From the past.
I often go outside to do things around the house such as splitting firewood, or a bit of gardening, work on the car for instance. Sometimes I get asked “Where have you been? You’ve been gone for ages and lunch/dinner is ready.” Or “What has taken you so long? You were just going to split a wheelbarrow of firewood.”
Well, you see I have some helpers. Oh, so you have helpers I hear you say. So it shouldn’t take you very long to do stuff if there are helpers!!!
My helpers are always there whenever I go outside, ready to be with me to see what they can do to make my jobs a lot easier. Yes, everywhere I go they always tag along to make sure I do a good job.
This is how they help in the garden.
Just so you know I had put a small plant in the garden right there.
“Did you say something?” she said.
At the chopping block. I am always telling them to watch out as a block of wood flies off the block.
“Hey. Got any white ants or bugs up here?” If I stop to get another block to split, there is always a chook up there!
Now you would think that working on the car, compressor going, the sound of air tools and perhaps a bit of language from me, would be not the place to be wouldn’t you?
“I think I’ll settle in here for a while.”
I love my chooks and don’t really mind with their “help”……most of the time.
