A Photo Every Day from the Sunshine Coast - Australia

Black and white in colour.

This Month's City Daily Photo Theme day is "Black and White in Colour", which gave me just the excuse I needed to hang around a public toilet in a park.   Of course I carefully modified my exposure so that other lingerers would dissolve into the photograph, as the dissolving feet on the left of the shot bear witness.

When I found this place a year ago, I didn't consider the possibility that someone might have gone to a lot of trouble with the lighting to ensure that it would be even more spectacular at night!

Sometimes I could drink it.

I've been a bit of a dull boy of late, in the sense of all work and no play.  My head's been buried in our little construction project for weeks with no respite, so today I decided to walk to the Post Office.

It was on the way home I noticed the greens were too green, the blues were too blue, the beach was too fantastic, and altogether I just wanted to eat it, and drink the wet bits.  And yes I have tweaked the colour a little, but only to show you what it really looked like!

A timely reminder of why I live where I live, and of how much I've missed over these last few weeks!

Alternative Facts

The sign says: " Welcome to Dicky Beach.  Dicky Beach is the only recreational beach in the world to be named after a shipwreck." It goes on about sharp protruding objects and the need to take care, but it's that first sentence that worries me a lot.

Messers Andrew D Short and Brad Farmer in their book "101 Best Australian Beaches" for instance tell us that there are at least fifty beaches in Australia alone named after shipwrecks.

Which version of the truth should we believe.   I live here, and I'd like to believe it were true, I really would so perhaps I will cling to the definition of the word "recreational" and pretend that no other beach named after a shipwreck is "recreational".  It must be what it feels like to live in the USA and  voted for a President in good faith.....

The latest in anti-theft.  Just leave a sign on your dashboard proclaiming things to be locked.  No chance of losing your key, no chance of theft..... although I suspect one needs an "unlocked" sticker to cover the other before one can get mobile.

Good Moaning!

That's what getting out of bed seems to be these days: a lot of moans and groans as yesterdays work makes itself felt on a collection of creaky joints.

But the walk to the end of the street does a little to help one forget!

Old Skool Waterway

Lake Magellan, I can only guess at the origins of the name but can't find any connection between good old Ferdinand and Pelican Waters.  Perhaps this is where he retired.

None the less, the lake that bears his name is entirely artificial, bordered by houses and with just the barest perimeter of lawn, no cycle ways, no picnic shelters, just lawn and trees.   Oh for the good old days, (when spelling mattered!).

Wonky Eight

Someone's letterbox, because I liked the way the number seems to be clinging on for dear life.
