Snapshot Sunday: The Circus

Roll Up Roll Up! I took this photo of a circus tent while we were in New Zealand early in 2016. It was very early and hardly anyone about at the time. I thought a circus tent with zero activity going on was interesting photographic material. The photo came out really dark and I was not at all happy with it. I put it to one side and forgot about it until yesterday. I have played around with it and come up with this. I was rather pleased with the results.

Vintage Cars: Ford Cortina

While I was out walking the dogs last week one hot afternoon I saw this Ford Cortina at the local service station. I hadn’t seen one of these in years. At one time they were everywhere and they were very popular cars. These cars were made from 1962 – 1982. I love the tail lights on these cars. I think they must have been reliable cars too as so many people were driving them around. The steering wheel looks huge doesn’t it?

Cee’s B&W Photo Challenge: Gates and Fences.

Gates and Fences

I had to dig deep into my archives again because the weather here is strictly for ducks only. I did not put a big toe past my front door today and the dogs not one little furry paw. They stayed curled up in their baskets instead. I longed to jump in the car and go to one of the other near or far towns for a walk and to take some new photos but it was not to be. With the bad weather and the Xmas Toy Run on it would have been very hard. Instead I have put together a mish mash of different photos of gates and fencing for this photo challenge. Some have been shown before but there are a few different ones. I hope no one finds this boring with the reruns.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Letter O- Needs to have the letter O anywhere in the word.

Oatlands

I thought about what to do for this letter and decided that things like books and spoons were way too boring. I didn’t want one with household goods since we just did kitchens and many of my posts have been on stuff around the house. Ok so I hooked up the dogs on their leads and told them we were off to take pictures of stuff on the High Street with the letter O in them. I decided to go with a theme of buildings for this post so I’ve done a bit of a slide show of our main street. I could have gone on for ages with these today.

  • Council Offices

Bad Photo Monday:Bitumen

Well we had been on our walk and I had been stopping quite a lot to take photos of the roses and other flowers for a post I wanted to do. The dogs had been quite patient waiting for me to take my photos. We were walking through the carpark on our way to the front of the building when Teddy suddenly pulled sharply on his lead. You can see his little head in the photo. I was still holding my camera so I ended up with this shot of the bitumen carpark complete with bird poop.

I am blaming Teddy for this one!
