Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Cars Trucks and Motorcycles

I have had a look around my folders to find some Trucks
The old truck that has been part of my street forever it seems

The truck on the street in Murwillumbah

One of the smallest trucks I have ever seen. On the street in Dijon

Actually this truck in Rome is the smallest

It’s time for the Motorcycles
In my past life, I used to work on the tack at the motorcycle races as a flag marshal. One of the best jobs as you are right beside the track. These are from the mid seventies. Yes I always had my camera with me in those days too except the photos were selective as it was film and cost a bit to get processed. These photos are in colour and scanned to black and white

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Letters U or V

Cee’s Photo Challenge using the letters U or V. We are getting closer to the end of the alphabet and these letters really had me thinking.

The promotion women walking through the streets of Rome in 2012 with their Umbrellas

Every seagull needs an Umbrella on a hot Australian day at the beach

What Vehicle would be the most appropriate for the letter V!!! Only a VW would do. This is my besties sons which one day will be resuscitated.

The Water Vine is huge as it uses itself to climb higher through the trees in the rainforest

Black and White Sunday – Through

What a challenge! I couldn’t think of anything then a bit of inspiration kicked in which led to too many ideas.

Looking through to a garden in Rome.

Not many through photos from Australia as the ideas of those came to late
