K’lee and Dales Cosmic Photo Challenge: Street Photography
The inspired quote from Debbie at Travel With Intent
“There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer.”
— Ansel Adams
Not only has the quote inspired, but Debbies post was about a sculpture so I went to my folders of the Sculptures By The Sea exhibition to find the photo I wanted inspired by the quote.

Dear 15 year old me,
1. Don’t be hard on yourself because …
…….no matter what you are doing it will all be alright.
2. The relationship you’re in ….
……isn’t really isn’t a problem. Your relationships with girls comes and goes. The benefit is that you are learning what it is like to be in a relationship. It is great that you remain friends with so many shows you that it wasn’t the right time and that you really are OK otherwise you wouldn’t have so many good friends who support and are able to tell you when things just aren’t right.
3. You will get through this because …
……you have a strong group of friends who like you and enjoy your company.
4. Don’t get caught up in thinking …
……thinking!!! You are always thinking of so many things. No you are not ugly. Glasses help you see and aren’t something that other people really focus on. Being tall and skinny does make you stand out a bit. Thinking of the negative you is not really a negative you. Accept who you are in your mind and you will be a lot happier.
5. These experiences will help you learn …
…..to be the man you will become. That special person is in your future, you will have kiss quite a few frogs before the princess appears.

The Manic Monday’s 3 Wway Prompt from Laura: Witch – Witchy – Bewitched
One afternoon, I was driving along and on the side of the road was a woman hitchhiking. As I couldn’t let a woman be left standing on the side of the road, I pulled over to the side of the road. She walked towards my car, her hips swaying hypnotising. She leant forward through the open window her dark hair falling through the open window, almost hiding her beautiful face. I asked “Where are you going.” She replied “I am just travelling and would appreciate a lift as far as you are going.”
With that, I said OK and she opened the door and slid into the car, her skirt riding up a bit showing her lovely tanned legs. She turned to me, offering an outstretched hand saying “Thank you, my name is Wendy.” As I took her hand, I couldn’t help but notice the top buttons of her blouse were open revealing a delicious glimpse of her breasts. “My name is Brian,” I said.
We drove along as the night started to fall, we talked about the regular chit chat stuff, the weather, places we had travelled to, family, foods we liked and what we did. I told her of my farm, the animals and the wonderful native bush and Australian animals and birds that surrounded my pace.
I asked Wendy “What do you do?”
She replied “I am a Witch,”
“A Witch!” I said incredulously, looking this quite stunning woman up and down.
“Yes,” Wendy said “I am a Witch”
“You don’t look like a Witch” “I imagine that Witches look a lot like the ones in my story books as a child, you know pointy hats, long pointy noses, warts and a voice that cackles.”
I asked “Do you cast spells and that sort of stuff?”
Wendy replied “Yes I do spells and incantations. Make magic potions to help people with love and cope with their lives.”
I asked “Do you do magic spells like in the folk tales. Like turn people into animals, frogs and that sort of thing?”
She replied “Yes, of course” “That is one of the fun things to do as a Witch.”
I said “That can’t be possible. How can that happen?”
Wendy the looked at me and asked if I wanted a demonstration. I gulped with apprehension.
She then put her hand with long red painted fingernails on my thigh and I turned into a Motel.
The word prompt from Terri: Back to School
From Kindy aged 4

Some of these kids have gone, some I still am in contact.
I look quite different as I aged over eight years
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
The face on her sign shows displeasure
Mark kept a few on his chair as a reminder.
The word prompt from Debbie at Travel with Intent: Shopping
As you may have guessed, I am unwell again with a stupid cold and not in the mood to do all those jobs I have to do outside. It has been a bushboy post avalanche.
Onto shopping. I am taking you shopping in Seoul, South Korea.
Down the narrow staircase we go
Now we are in the street where the colour and shops abound.
Some of the shops are multi story shops, while some are just on the pavement.
If you find a spot, plonk down and get your goods out for all to see.
Or head into the shops where there is something to tantalise.
After a while you might need a bite to eat.
And then back into the fray to find a bargain.
