The old weathered door

Dan’s Thursday Doors

I was in town the other day waiting for my car to be repaired. I always take this opportunity to become a tourist in my own town, wander the streets and back lanes taking photos.

I have posted this door once before for Bren’s Mid-week Monochrome and she suggested to do a post for Thursday Doors. I liked the monochrome photo but thought I’d show the door in colour.

The door and the bricks really do complement each other

A little bit closer

I hope this door never changes but undoubtedly one day it will.

Mainly bright pink flowers

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Walk 50 steps or less and take a new photo(s)

I walked out of my front door. I have a few ways to walk fifty steps so I made the decision to go up both directions of the driveway. First I went up the left hand side driveway. I didn’t know what I would find and luckily there were these wood fungi.

Fifty steps up the right hand side of the driveway are Grevilleas which are in flower

Opposite the Grevillea flowers are the Ivory Curl trees and they have finished flowering but now they have these lovely seed pods

Going down the path towards the back of my house is the shade house and my Begonias are flowering

I think found some apricot colours

Terri’s Sunday Stills Monthly Colour Challenge: All About #Apricot

I wasn’t sure if I had any apricot images. They all seem either too orange or yellow to me. Of course they are mainly flowers.

Re-living the Past #23 – My First Greenish Photos

Weekly Prompts Weekend Challenge: Greenish

This selection of photos range from 2014 to 2017. Perhaps you may have seen the before. Some are favourites I re-do for challenges and some you may have not seen before.

Yes there maybe a snake involved so perhaps I’ll make it into a slideshow so those who find nature not to there liking can skip past.

1 A Green-banded Line Blue Butterfly
2 Just a stack of bottles in a restaurant
3 There’s your Green Tree Snake
4 King Parrot feathers
5 A Green Tree Frog
6 Reflections on water. One of these started my interest in doing water reflection abstracts
7 A Dragonfly

Last on the card – August 2022

Last Photo for August 2022

How wonderful to have thirty-six people show us their last photos for July. There was one hundred and ninety-four views, with sixty-eight likes and many thanks to those thirty-six people who contributed their good and not so good photos.

Like a lot of people I forget and am surprised at what was the last photo on the four devices I use to take photos. I went from –

  • you wonder why
  • to an accidental image
  • getting ready for a post
  • to careful framing would be better

So let’s see what you have for August 2022. There isn’t a time limit so you can post your last photos anytime. The last photo for the month will always be the last photo

The rules are simple:
1. Post the last photo on your SD card or last photo on your phone for the 31st August.
2. No editing – who cares if it is out of focus, not framed as you would like or the subject matter didn’t cooperate.
3. You don’t have to have any explanations, just the photo will do
4. Create a Pingback to this post or link in the comments
5. Tag “The Last Photo”
