Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Words with double letters

Double or Nothing

This was quite fun to do. I used a mixture of old and new photos. The old ones I edited in Adobe Photo Elements 9. The newer ones just with my Microsoft editing tools.

My words are:

  • Ferry
  • Earrings
  • Blooms
  • Fossicking
  • Bottles
  • Jetty

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Wildlife


I was wondering what I was going to do for this challenge. Most of the wildlife I photograph seems to be birds lately. I did capture a picture of this lizard in my back garden a few months ago.

Here are a group of Japanese Macaques who live in an enclosure in City Park in Launceston. The babies were cute but hard to photograph as they were too busy playing to pose.

This is a potaroo, an Australian native marsupial animal that is related to the wallaby. When I was house sitting for a friend some years ago lots of them would come in to her garden to steal her vegetables and raspberry plants. I had to make sure that I secured the gates when I went to water the plants in the hothouse and the fenced in areas where she grew everything. The potaroos were not tame but they were unafraid of humans as you can see I could get quite close to this one.
