Time #20- Time

This months photo challenge in square format from Becky is Time

This month I will put a song with the photo.

The December theme is TIME. I am sure everyone has found at least one #timesquare, but just in case you are struggling here are some #timesquare ideas;

Timepieces – clocks, watches, sun dials and egg timers
Sayings – Time & tide wait for no man (or woman!), A stitch in time saves nine, Early bird catches the worm, In the nick of time or More haste, less speed
Synonyms – era, moment, season, infinity, interval, lifetime and age
Out of the box – nighttime, downtime, pastime and mealtimes!

The Bells

The Ragtag Daily Prompt: Chime

I decided to chime into this conversation with a few bells that can ring in the day, or chime into your life.
When viewed from below you can see the actual chime that strikes the bell at the Grafton Cathedral.

The Street Lights of London

The word prompt from Nancy: Street Lights

I went on a search of my folders for some lovely Australian street lights when I came across a few I photographed in London a couple of years ago. These became an obsession so I have ended up just having some street lights of London.

This is my minimalist view of the topic, by not making the topic the focus of the photo.

A bit of the old London with the new.

I really like these lights.

Not strictly a street light but I haven’t seen many lights with a crown and a guard before.

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.
