Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: People at Work
One morning, we came into the office to find Marks desk decorated.
Just a subtle reminder when doing field work make sure your boots are clean before going into the office

Mark kept a few on his chair as a reminder.
Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Sculptures, Statues or Carvings
A while ago, I went to an annual event in Sydney called Sculptures By The Sea. I have so many photos from then as well as previous times, it was hard to get down to a few. The ones I picked have a bit of a sea view.
Yes…….benches. Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Benches
The stone bench in a Museum in Bologna. It was surprisingly comfortable.
The wonderful wooden bench my friend made at his property
The garden bench at my place.
I have lots of birds for Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge of Birds
Here are my Black and White Birds

Wonderful Willie Wagtail as he hops about the grass looking for a snack
A White-winged Chough surveys where to walk to next
A raucous Magpie Lark, or better known as Pee Wees, shouts at a tree
Meet Chip, the Magpie who used to knock on the door to get a small snack, at my besties
This Pied Butcher Bird would always come when I was in the bush cutting firewood hoping that I would disturb a grub or two.

Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge : Birds
One day I was looking at some of my bird photos. One in particular was of a heron standing in a tree in my backyard with the sun behind. The silhouette wasn’t that clear, so I set about changing the white areas to very white and the bird and tree to black.
Of course this started a series of converting colour photos to grey-scale so I could hand colour what I wanted. You can see at the very top of the Rainbow Bee Eater below where I missed a small amount of the white.
When I print these and frame them I didn’t need a frame around the photo. On a blog post the white does disappear and the edges are gone. The Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoo just flies around the page.
This one, a New Holland Honeyeater on a Banksia, was the most difficult but worth the effort don’t you think?
The Golden Whistler singing among the many branches was also a bit fiddly. I left a little bit of his yellow on his throat but didn’t make it white as something different to the others
Writing the post wasn’t easy either as I added all the photos in one go and had to find the spaces to write. I thought about doing borders for this post. Do you think I should have put borders on the photos?

I often see two different birds at the bird bath. (search on here bird bath to see more in colour) This post isn’t all about two birds and the bird bath, some other twos for your enjoyment as well.
Despite the Spangled Drongos death stare, the Noisy Miner remained oblivious
Sometimes you have to defend your territory even if the other bird is much bigger. The Noisy Friarbird kept harassing the Square-tailed Kite
“Hey Bobbin, what did he write down there?”
There is always somewhere good to perch to see if anyone has any chips.
I thought I really should include some flowers for Cee
