Snapshot Sunday:Mercedes Benz

While I was out today with the dogs I spotted a Mercedes Benz parked outside the pub. The pub is one of the best places to find cars because people will go there for a drink or a meal as they serve meals all day long. I found the second one stuffed in someone’s garage sadly in need of some work. I don’t know the years of either model but you can really see the changes in the cars over the years when you compare them.

Snapshot Sunday: King of the Mountain

Peter Brock – Adelaide

Today I’m going retro with this old photo I had scanned onto the computer. Australia’s most famous motor race the Bathurst 1000 is being run today. In years gone by David and I would often spend the whole day watching the race on television. He loved it. As time passed I tended more to watch the start with him and pop in and out to check on the progress of the race while doing other things. That’s what I am doing today so in honour of Bathurst, 9 times winner Peter Brock and David here is Peter Brock in his famous 05 Commodore. This was not taken at Bathurst which we never visited but at a support race for the Australian F1 Grand Prix in Adelaide. The photo was most likely taken with my old Pentax MG .

Snapshot Sunday: Botanical Gardens

As Vanda said we had a lovely walk through the Botanical Gardens on Saturday before heading to the newly redecorated restaurant for afternoon tea. We had a lovely Devonshire Tea with English Breakfast Tea a  firm favourite. There were some beautiful flowers in bloom but sadly the bulbs were already finishing. They were very early this year so we didn’t get to see them at their best. I am looking forward to the roses and hope I will manage to get back there again. Here are a couple of snaps that I took while walking around yesterday.

Snapshot Sunday: Saturday in the Park

Spring at the Tasmanian Botanical Gardens.

While most people were glued to their television sets watching the AFL grand final (Australian Rules Football), Naomi and I were out and about taking photos for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge at the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens in Hobart. I was very surprised to find tulips in full bloom there as it is quite early for them.

Bad Photo Monday: Birds

I am always trying to take photos of birds in my garden or those I see when I’m out and about.  Usually I spot them when I don’t have the camera with me or don’t have the right lens. Sometimes birds are just plain uncooperative.

Uncooperative Magpie

I really should have had a longer lens.

Bad Photo Monday

For todays bad photo I chose one that I found while I was sorting through some photos this afternoon after work. I was looking for something to put in Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge when I came across this terrible photo. Why on Earth did I keep this one and what was I thinking when I took it???? Anyway here it is.
