Watery Wednesday

Last weekend I went into Newcastle, NSW and took a walk along the beachfront. This is a pic of Nobby's Lighthouse.
This is the same stretch of beach that in June 2007 the huge ship Pasha Bulka was blown ashore in a major storm. It took almost a month before the ship was pulled free. As it turned out they had emptied their balast tanks before entering the harbour trying to save time. They were then sitting too high in the water and had not control when the storm blew up.

Mellow Yellow Monday

While driving along to an appointment this overcast and drizzly morning I came across this yellow slippery dip. I had nothing planned for Mellow Yellow and lucky for me I had the camera handy.

Scenic Sunday

This is a picture of the Story Bridge over the river in Brisbane, Australia. It was taken some years ago on 35mm film so I had to scan it in.

Camera Critters Saturday

Not too far away from my place is a pond with heaps of ducks. As soon as I parked the car they all waddled up to me looking for a feed. After they realised that I was not there to feed them they all went back to the water. When the next car pulled up, out of the water they came again....

Many Australians might remember the TV commercial about the Goggomobile.

Camera Critters Saturday

I found a few cows to photograph last week. They were quite curious about having their padock invaded by someone with a camera.

Watery Wednesday

These pics were taken in Vietnam. While spending a couple of days in Halong Bay in a junk boat, we were taken to a hole in a rock and found a private swimming area inside surrounded by a rock wall.

Sepia Scenes Wednesday

This wooden seat was found down an arcade between shops in an old historic town. It's a nice way to use up old wagon wheels.

Ruby Tuesday

These old wooden phone boxes are hard to find in Australia, they were replaced by newer modern ones. Even the new ones are becoming hard to find as most people now carry mobile phones.
A shopping center I worked in a few years ago had its only public phone removed because it wasn't making the phone company enough money.
Pitty is wasn't blue otherwise I would have stuck my head in to see if the inside was bigger than the outside...............

Blue Monday

While walking around Historic Morpeth on the weekend I came across this old blue rocking chair. It was down a pathway between some craft shops.

Camera Critters Saturday

These polar bears were taken at Sea World on the Gold Coast, Australia. There are usually three bears but only one was out at the time. He looked like he was having fun.

SkyWatch Friday

Another from my back door. While there's not a lot of colour in this sunset, the moon came up early and it was nice to get them both in one shot.
