Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: View From The Side

Side On

I enjoy taking candid photos of people doing things. I like it when their attention is focussed on what they are doing,  not on what I am doing.

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: In or On Water

In or On

I have been a lazy blogger this week and haven’t been out to take more photos as I had planned to do so here are some from the archives.

Ovation of the Seas at the Overseas Passenger Terminal, Sydney
Ducks having fun in the water.
Torquay Ferry Devonport
Fish in a pond.

This last one was originally taken in 1990 at Loch Ness, in Scotland, specifically near the ruins of Urqhurt Castle. We don’t know if there is really something in the water at Loch Ness. I kind of hope there is but I also kind of hope we don’t find it. We don’t have to know everything.

What could be cuter than animals, especially baby animals? Here are a few that I’ve taken over the years of our pets.

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Wheels


This week I have a few photos I took on my smartphone. I don’t really like using it for photography as it is quite slow to respond but it does take a reasonable photo and I can take it with me when it wouldn’t be convenient to take my real camera, like when I’m going grocery shopping or for that random moment when I’m waiting for someone who is giving me a ride.

Walking into Geeveston to buy groceries I passed by these two old cars.

An extra wheel?
Fancy wheels

Waiting in the car for a friend I amused myself taking a picture or two.

Wheels on the Water

Here is a couple from my visit to the Wooden Boat Festival.

Don’t Fence Me In

When the houses behind ours were built in 2009 the developer built a new fence to replace the previous one. Ten years later the view has changed.
