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: Banana Bread

Banana Bread

It’s been another rainy Sunday here in Geeveston. As Naomi said in her post the recent wet weather had made it very hard to get out and about and take photos. Today I had the choice of an archive photo, a doll photo or a picture taken around the house.

I had a couple of over ripe bananas so I made Banana Bread. Things are getting pretty bad when I resort to taking photos of food.

Snapshot Sunday: Work in Progress

My newly painted passage.

Snapshot Sunday is late this week but it’s still Sunday somewhere right? After spending Friday moving three bookcases and their contents out of my passage I started to paint it on Saturday. It should have been an easy job but it wasn’t because the lighting in that area is very poor, very little natural light reaches it and even with the lights on the shadows made it hard to see if I was doing it properly so the job has stretched on through the weekend.  So my picture today is also my excuse.

 

Snapshot Sunday on Monday: Sleet

Sleet falling in my garden this evening.

The first two days of spring were lovely and sunny and so was Sunday morning so I planned to take a walk to the local scrapyard to take some photos for Snapshot Sunday. However, as our  mum always used to say “Do what you have to do before you do what you want to do.” I thought that first I had better wash the walls and ceiling in my passage as they are next on the painting list.

By the time I had done that the wind had come up and the rain had begun. So no walk.

Today was even worse with freezing temperatures and snow in the hills. I rarely get snow at my place, this evening at about 6pm it was raining heavily as it had been for most of the day and I looked out to see that there was sleet which would probably have turned into snow had it not been so wet. I took this photo out the back door. This is sleet not my dirty windows.
