Let’s go over there

The Lens-Artist Photo Challenge #140: A Change of Scenery

As we are travelling a bit, let’s take some music with us. This is an Aussie band called Fraternity. You may recognised the singer playing the recorder. It’s Bon Scott, the lead singer of ACDC when they first started out, before his time in ACDC.

The Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #139: Special Moments

A few special moments to share.

A Wanderer Butterfly coming to rest on my besties hand for a while

Having help when I really needed it while working under my car

Having chickens hatch

Having a critically endangered Regent Honeyeater visit my garden

Taking a super bad photo of a very shy and almost rare (in my area) Regent Bowerbird. One quick photo and it was gone.

Having a Eastern Yellow Robin come and sit on the back of a chair while you are having a bite to eat in the garden. He came around often at my besties old place. We called him Bobbin

Finding a Nobbi Lizard at one of my favourite places, the Raspberry Lookout, after the fires of the Summer of 2019

Discovering a Hakea flurolenta on my place for the first time. I haven’t seen it since those fires but hope it may return in time.

Discovering the delights of Paris and Venice for the first time

Venice

A little green

This months Life in Colour: Green

Jude asked that “It’s easy to find shades of green in nature, but what else can you discover?” So my quest is to find a few things that aren’t nature. Should I struggle? What do you think? This post will be a little green.

A cart so green
with eggs so clean

Street art green
must be seen

Don’t be mean
shoot that green

Lost it’s sheen
now a green

Italian shutters green
must be seen

Art piece of choice
green or turquoise

Always seen
being green

Bye

Once a knight

Ragtag Daily Prompt Thursday: Brandish

Here is a song that I have loved since I first heard it. An Australian group of schoolkids, King Fox, won a Battle of the Bands doing a version of this song.

OK….now onto my
Knight of the Rooves
Always there,
brandishing his fearful very spikey
whatsit
guarding the roof tops
of Paris.
Sir Tuyau de Cheminée
has many other guards
ready to go
at the first sign
of trouble.

All lined up,
their steely gaze
seems to just drift
over your head.
You decide to go
remembering what
has been said
turn to loook
one more time
One day things
will get hot
around here

Towering

Terri’s Sunday Stills: Towering Turmoil

I don’t know about the turmoil part but I sure I can get on with a bit of towering. Here’s a song to listen while having a scroll

I guess I did find a bit of towering turmoil after all. The good news is that the big Tallow Wood tree on my place is alive and standing and has new growth after the devastating fires of last year. In case you didn’t know here is a bit of what happened at Durranbah
