Your favourite #PinkSquares

Becky’s Square Photo Challenge: Past Squares
Cee’s FOTD

I though since it’s Floral Friday as well, I’d stick to my #PinkSquares as I am sure there will be at least one pink flower. I am trawling the stats to find some of your favourites.

There is always some likes and some comments and in 2018 there were a few for these posts -the top number for Comment was Pink#11 with thirty-nine comments For some strange reason, the original square image is missing???

Next was Pink#17 with 21 comments. A pink Frangipanni with a bonus Red Shield bug

And to round out the top three Pink#7 with 17 comments. It looks like the fungi had people talking

Now for the number of likes. Third was Pink#22 with twenty-seven likes. A dresser in my besties old house. That’s part of one of her paintings. That’s just how it was, no staging and I saw the scene from across the room and took the photo

Pink#18 received twenty-nine likes.and was second highest. A house on the island of Burano just a ferry ride from Venice.

And the most liked photo was the very last post Pink#31 This post received thirty-six likes and there has bee three recent views in September and October this year. Actually it was more than one photo. I love to grow Begonias. Therefore I just had to show your a few of the varieties I have; their leaves and flowers. I’ll do slideshow to make it easier.

From the past

The Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #168: Seen Better Days
Becky’s Square Photo Challenge: Past Squares

Of course there has to be a song. This is an Australian song that was a big hit. I hope you enjoy it

First is the #PastSquare from the #RoofSquare

Onto a few things that have seen better days

An Australian made car from the 1950’s – a Holden FX

Would you ride this coach?

or go to town in this wagon?

This house is still much the same last time I drove past

Pompeii has definitely seen better days. Also from #SquareTime

This house too is still standing

The Colosseum is maintaining it’s better days appearance

The old truck that “lives” in my street

The remains of bird baths I’ve had over the years. Usually broken by possums trying to find a drink in droughts as I don’t think I have fat birds around here. This was from the #SquareUp

The feature photo is my old chook shed used in #RoofSquare

Getting close at home

I have been invited to be a special guest host for Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge. My theme is Close ups around the House.

If you have not come across CMMC before, every week Cee invites us to have some fun. The first Wednesday is macros, the second a colour, the third you pick a topic from her photo and the fourth she goes all alphabetical. If there is a fifth Wednesday, like today, the topic is up to the guest host, that’s me.

So today, especially for CMMC, here are close-ups of the things inside my home.


If you want more information on this challenge, go to Cee’s link to CMMC Home page for more information and if you have enjoyed today why not join Cee again next week, her upcoming CMMC topics are;

  • July – Close Up or Macro
  • July Color – Brown
  • July Pick a Topic from my Photo

How did I go?

It’s cool in the shade

The Lens-Artists Challenge #152: Shades and Shadows

Chilling in the shade

At the beach

At the markets

Under the car

On the verandah on a hot day

Always can find a place in the shade

The world of shadows

Looking through my window

Shadows on the sand

The two of us feeling tall

Taking a stroll along the beach chasing your shadow

Waiting for morning tea
