Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Letter H -Topic is Happy

The Alphabet According to Cee: H is for Happy Dog

For this challenge I thought I would show you what makes Cindy happy. Chasing tennis balls.

Of course it is a bit difficult to take photos and throw a tennis ball at the same time but I managed to get a few good shots. Luckily the back yard is long enough for me to have time to get the picture before Cindy gets back to me and wants another throw.

She is eleven now and although she is as energetic as ever I have noticed that she doesn’t play for as long now. Five or ten minutes and she’s ready to stop but she’ll be good for another game later. Cindy has always decided how long she’ ll run for though. When David used to take her to the dog park to play ball she would run round madly for five minutes, play ball for a while and then go and jump into the nearby river for a swim, usually losing the ball in the process. After that she would run back and jump into the back of the wagon. She was never taught to do that. She just did.

Waiting for me to throw it again.

Luckily we have a big back yard.

Run Cindy Run!

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge:Letter G_Needs to have the letter G

Here are my photos for the letter G at last. I took my camera with me when I went to walk the dogs this afternoon. We had a lovely walk up and down the High Street. We looked in shop windows and met a few friends who were also out and about. The dogs met a few doggy friends and some who were not their friends at all.There was a pleasant breeze as we walked. It felt good on my face and I thought the dogs looked cute with their ears blowing back as they trotted along the road. I could have stayed out all afternoon but we took over an hour anyway. Here is what I got today.

My G’s are:

  1. goal
  2. morning glory
  3. garbage
  4. garage
  5. gumball
  6. goose
  7. Gay Street

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Letter G – Needs to have the Letter G

The Alphabet According to Cee – G is in:

Well once again my photography efforts are being foiled by the rain. A steady drizzle pretty much all day so far has discouraged me from wandering around looking for photography subjects out-of-doors so I put my thinking cap on and found some objects around the house.  I love my “stuff” so it was not hard to find a few bits and pieces that made good photography subjects.

  • Glass – a champagne glass from my small collection of Ruby Glass.
  • Frog –  Lucky golden frog guards my raffle tickets
  • Gemstones –  Pretty coloured gemstones.
  • Eggs – A painted egg I bought in Russia and a collection of wooden painted eggs that Naomi bought in Singapore or Malaysia I think.

Cee’s fun foto Challenge:Letter F-fun or flowers!

Fun or Flowers

Even with the bulbs already finishing off early Vanda and I still got some nice photos of the other plants and flowers. We like a lot of the same flowers so there will be a bit of doubling up here and there. Here are the ones I took.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Letter F – Topic is Fun or Flowers

The alphabet according to Cee: F is for Flowers and a Fun Day Out

Naomi and I decided to pay a visit to the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens to get photos for this challenge. We made it into a day out with lunch at a favourite pub and finished off with a nice Devonshire Tea at the restaurant at the gardens. In between times we took some pictures.


Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Letter E-Needs to have two e’s in the topic word.

Here are my photos for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge Letter E. I decided to pick out a wide range of subjects from my archives for this one. The weather is still not very Spring like at the moment. We’ve had snow, hail, wind and rain over the last few weeks so getting out just to take photos has often been a wash out. Thankfully the letter E has been a much easier letter than the previous ones to find subjects for. We are starting Daylight Saving in another week and I hope we will get some nice days. It will be great to get out and take some new photos. I feel more drives in the car coming on. Anyway here is what I came up with for E.
