From the past

The Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #168: Seen Better Days
Becky’s Square Photo Challenge: Past Squares

Of course there has to be a song. This is an Australian song that was a big hit. I hope you enjoy it

First is the #PastSquare from the #RoofSquare

Onto a few things that have seen better days

An Australian made car from the 1950’s – a Holden FX

Would you ride this coach?

or go to town in this wagon?

This house is still much the same last time I drove past

Pompeii has definitely seen better days. Also from #SquareTime

This house too is still standing

The Colosseum is maintaining it’s better days appearance

The old truck that “lives” in my street

The remains of bird baths I’ve had over the years. Usually broken by possums trying to find a drink in droughts as I don’t think I have fat birds around here. This was from the #SquareUp

The feature photo is my old chook shed used in #RoofSquare

Re-living the past #4 – Old

Debbie’s One Word Sunday: Old

For this photo in my series of Re-living the past was taken of the old truck that has been parked in the street ever since I first bought the property. When one of the nieghbours bought their place, they didn’t like the truck in front so it was dragged to another property across the road where an old tip was situated. When the person who bought that block, they moved it to the other block they owned in the street which I never knew happened otherwise I would have complained saying its the streets truck and belongs to no one. It should be back as a bit of street art I think.

Cee’s Mid-Week Madness Challenge: April Pick a Topic from my Photo

“The photo is of train going through Canby. What I like about this photo is the white cyclist’s helmet sitting on top of green bush.. The train is in motion. There is some graffiti on the train car and I live the message “We will deliver””

Here is what I found

Small

Cee’s Black and White Challenge: Smaller than a Bread Box or Bread Bin

Now just to be sure I had to include my bread bin again so you know the scale Cee wants

A small turtle one of my girls made

The brake pedal from an old truck

A little Grey Fantail sits on a gate maybe looking for food for the family

Grey Fantail chicks are always hungry

Meanwhile, an ant has a drink of water. I don’t know what their real name is, I just call them gold bums

A variety of ch and ck

Cee’s March Alphabet: Letters Ch or Ck in the the word

One of my all time favourite songs to listen while you have a look at what I found for Cee’s Mid Week Madness Challenge

Where to begin? I guess a few birds are in order. I did get a bit lazy and didn’t name everything but if you want to know a bit more drop me a comment and I’ll give it a go.

I did a bit of digging and found there are a lot more than I first thought. I had to include an old favourite at the end

Your favourite images from 2020

The Lens-artists Photo Challenge #129: Favourite Images of 2020

I have gone back through my stats to find what was your favourite post of the month and then get the image or pick one if there is a few photos in the post. It appears that people have taken to the Last on the Card Photo Challenge as it is the most popular post almost every month. Considering it was started as an impulse by me in January 2020 it is fitting that that image of the Sacred Kingfisher be the one for January.

JANUARY 2020

February the Last on the Card and the This is January were popular by you. These two posts, Last on the Card and the This is……. series, are the most popular for the est of the year so I am going with the next one down. This was a Six Word Saturday

The favourite from March was a reflection photo part of a three photo challenge

April saw the return of an old favourite as part of a photo challenge Animals. This photo is a firm favourite every time it gets and airing.

APRIL 2020

Another photo that has fast become a favourite is the Satin Bowerbirds Bower with his collection of blue stuff. A bit of luck in finding the set up just right

MAY 2020

For June I decided to use a Last on the Card as the following posts had lots of photos and was too hard to pick one.

JUNE 2020

July was time for one of Becky’s Square photo challenges. The photo looking down my road was a favourite for Square Perspectives

One of your favourite bridges is the Grafton Bridge. This photo is from an older post re-blogged which turned up a lot of new readers. A post in black and white is always a bit different. I picked an image that I like from this post.
