I hadn’t set anything up for this week’s post so I flicked through my collection and looked for the odd and unusual. Now this isn’t unusual only a sunset but what a glorious riot of colour. Taken on Boxing Day.
Quite the opposite here with a cooling serene moon set. Taken early winter this year.
I have mentioned in earlier posts about our solar shed. Well, here it is. This supplies all of our electrical needs. On a good day it puts out 9kwh. I took this about three years ago when I was still a dab hand in the garden. The hedge behind is now 10 feet tall.
This was taken in 2007. We had about 50 cubic metres of road base dumped on the house pad. It gives a good solid base for driving into the garage. After spreading it with the tractor and tilling it in, I spent two days with a vibrating roller. The picture only shows about a fifth of the area.
Now for something completely different. This was taken in a tiny restaurant in the town of Silverton, far west New South Wales. The town is basically a ghost town with a pub and several sandstone structures still standing. The bottles are part of a huge treasure trove of ‘stuff’ dug out of the town’s rubbish tip. When the silver ran out the mines at Broken Hill opened up.
A strange fountain in my Doctor’s gardens, taken on the open day a few months ago.
Trying out my new portrait lens on a friends cats on Xmas day. I took the pic of the table with it and focused on the glass chocolate jar. Everything else goes a little out of focus and makes the jar stand out.
The sheer joy is evident on this young lad’s face as he takes the plunge. I had a boom fitted to the front of the tractor and rigged up as a diving board.
I took this at a small petting zoo. The rabbits are rehydrating because? Yes! Easter is coming soon. I thought I would just remind you all, let’s face it come the first of January the eggs will be in the shops. They are cute though.
Hmmmm! Okay even I don’t know what to make of this. It stands in the natural history section of the Sydney museum. It could be Father Time riding out of the old year and into the new. Or a case of extreme dieting, or perhaps I ran out of time and shoved it on here.
Well folks, that’s the lot for this year. As usual they will look better opened in a new tab or window. I wish you all the very best for 2014 and hope that the year brings you health and happiness.
