Here are the twos

Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: 2 Different Things or the Number 2

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.

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

I had to leave the yellow on this car for Cee. A Fiat in Genoa

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

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Bikes

I have been thinking of what bike I could use for this challenge. I remembered this bike made from wire which comes from Africa bought in a local garage sale.

Cees Black & White Photo Challenge

This photo challenge from Cee is words with double letters

I have gone double letters with two words. I took these photos of a Little Wattlebird a couple of days ago.

Looking about the Poinciana for a insect or two

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
180223_structure_shed03

I dismantled most of the structure to use in the new house. Some bits had to stay as they held up the roof
180223_structure_shed02

It was raining when I decided to take the photos. Maybe one day I might do another post about the old house.
