The word prompt from Nancy’s Photo a Week Challenge: Water
Why do I say the faces of water?
Water can have a calm face to look at for ages.
The calm face of the gentle ripple of waves at sunrise
The raging face of floodwaters pounding down the river
The reflective face of water lapping at the hulls of boats
The lonely face hanging from a thread of web
and sometimes the water actually shows its’ face
The Tuesday Photo Prompt: Patterns
The water of my dam on a windy day. Can you see faces?
The base of a Spotted Gum tree
The word prompt from Sunday Stills: Water
Terri asked if we would go with a sub-theme of Stand-up Paddling. Well that isn’t a big thing around my part of the world. Living in the bush (or forest for my overseas friends), there’s not much call for paddle boards around these parts.
The thing that happened on the weekend was rain, beautiful, beautiful rain to quench the parched land and put out the bushfires that threatened so many homes including the homes of animals who inhabit the bush.
So my post has a little bit of the rain that has gladdened my heart.
Yes a little bit of rain. Water drops on a Xanthorrhoea or Grass Tree.
A little bit of water is what all plants need as do we humans.
As I mentioned Xanthorroea, I guess I should give a bit of information about them. This is a couple that are growing in a gully on my place.
These Grass Trees are about 3 to 4 meters tall which makes these ones quite old as their growth rate is about twenty-five millimeters or one inch a year. The one on the background has a flower spike or a spear which is around two meters tall.
The word prompt from Lens_Artists Photo Challenge: Patterns
So many patterns in this world it was hard to stop myself from just going on with too many photos.
The colourful patterns on the cliff face
The amazing patterns created by spiders
The reflection on the water make a very liquid pattern
The crazy cat pattern made by the bark of a Spotted Gum Tree.
Wonderful patterns made by Sand Crabs
The patterns on an aeroplanes tail
The patterns made by water lillies
Amazing patterns on the underside of a Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoo
Fabulous patterns on the feathers of an Ibis
And of course, the wonderful patterns on our Moon

The word prompt from Laura at All the Shoes I Wear: Mysterious
Mysterious faces I have found
I don’t usually do double photo challenges but looking a photo for for Cees Black and White Photo Challenge: Water and then the idea for Colours that Start With the Letter S came along, which just started words tumbling from my mind.
Upon a silver sea
the fishers return.
A hold full of fish
At the dock
the buyers return.
Their partners and children
await their return.
Once unloaded and refreshed
to the sea again they return.
The bottle in the water
