This is the way to go

The word prompt from the Lens-Artists: Weathered or Worn

Just at the top of my street is an old town distance post. In the horse and buggy days, this part of the road was the way to get from Grafton to Glen Innes. The initials of the towns have long faded as has the distance numbers. If there is a bush fire in the area, this is old wooden post is one of the things that I try to keep safe.

Abstract – Images from my lens

The word prompt from Ragtag Daily Prompt: Abstract

I love this theme. I often think of photography as art as well as capturing life in the moment. I have quite a number of photos that I have deliberately taken in a folder called “Arty Ones”

All of these photos are what I saw with my minds eye. None have been altered or enhanced. Many involve shadows or water as they can provides many abstract images. I hope you enjoy my Abstract images.

Brian Eno’s music can be abstract. This track Reflections suits what I try to do

Reflection on the Floor

The word prompt from Nancy: Reflection

So many photos with a reflection from glass or water but this time something different

The reflection from the stained glass windows onto the polished floor of the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona.

The wonderful colours that showered the building from the windows, fell onto the floor

This Is My Post

This is a tale of a fence post, a Spangled Drongo and a Noisy Friarbird  –  as told by the Spangled Drongo.

What started out as a normal day, you know, a bit of flying about, some singing with my mates and looking for insects and other snacks around the place.
I always drop onto this fence post nearly every day. It’s a great perch to see if any insects or bugs are moving about in the garden or on the grass.

As you can see, This is My Post.

A mate was flying past and he said “Hey, can I come for a visit to your post”spangled drongo_my post2_named_home_oct 2018

Oh, that’s OK. I’ll just hang on this side if that’s alright with you.
