A Photo Every Day from the Sunshine Coast - Australia

from May 2014



There is no time limit on that piece of dappled shade on the grass.  We can sit watching and listening to the waves for as long as we want, or until we get hungry!

The bathroom wall - April 2014






Perhaps we are making progress in the seemingly never ending quest for the bathroom wallpaper.

Another of my favourite things; the way the little waves at the edge of a giant ocean seem to chase their own shadows.

Flower- March 2014




I don't know what's come over me... I just felt the urge to take a photograph of a flower.   I used to do that all the time.  Might do it again soon!

Where to now? -February 2014


While I'm still pondering that question as far as the blog goes, the retrospective continues!

Clear signs that an Ibis has been quite lost.

Claire and Michael - January 2014


In a barbed wire canoe....

An old European tradition seems to be gaining a foothold here, no doubt (with the greatest of respect to Clare and Michael whose lock tells me they were celebrating their first anniversary), spurred on by commercial interests from interested parties such as the people making these heart shaped locks.

Originally the tradition had the lock clasped to a bridge stanchion on the wedding day of those concerned, and the key thrown into the water so that the bond could never be broken.

I am not sure what the symbolism in the barbed wire is.... hopefully it's not a reflection of that first year.

Sunrise over Tooway - December 2013


Sadly the grand-puppy is no more, so early mornings on the beach are without his exuberance, but we  are glad that we had the opportunity to share them with him

It's just after sunrise, well before five a.m. and the small fluffy grand-puppy and I have the beach to ourselves!

I suspect that I can be forgiven for not being here often at this time, but when I do make the effort I often can't believe the sheer beauty of the light!

And all those sleeping wives, daughters and grand-children missed it!

Yellow brick road - November 2013


So do I follow the yellow brick road and end up in the bin, or take the red path, perhaps less travelled?

Why I live where I live (again) - October 2013


Of course now she is seven and too tall to photograph from this angle without employing a ladder, or a drone perhaps.

Three year olds are just as enthusiastic as I am when it comes to mucking around at the water's edge!

Why I live where I live -September 2013

<

Four years on this is still the background photo on our cards.  Strangely perhaps, the days of the morning surf seem to be in the past, but that doesn't mean we still don't communicate, the ocean and I.

It's an interesting question - why do you live where you live?

We only live at "home" for half the year, but perhaps the images we chose to illustrate our home on our "calling cards" best explain the reason we keep returning.

The six images in this series are cropped to the proportion of the cards.

Hopefully no further explanation is necessary.

100 kilometres per hour. - August 2013


I had thirty images to choose from the month, and for reasons inexplicable, I just liked this one.

It was the car travelling at a hundred, not the mountain.   The cane fields in the foreground have been abandoned, and like all good abandoned cane fields will soon magically be transformed into a golf course.

Anything Green is my Scene - July 2013


The soft green algae gives the rocks at the edge of the high water mark a pillow-like texture underfoot.

It's a very slippery pillow though, so great care must be taken when walking among them!

Signs that Don't - May 2013



Sometimes, signs need further explanation, but I don't do further explanation.

Colours - April 2013

The question is as valid today as it was then!

Do designers of container ships research the routes their subjects will ply to ensure they are colour co-ordinated?

Perhaps they do.

Grave Days - March 2013


The day the coast got smaller.  The vote was held, Noosa withdrew from the city that became known as the Sunshine Coast, and nothing else happened.

Perhaps the sign wasn't really meant to indicate that the Caloundra Cemetery is truly a business park, but today may well herald the death of the Sunshine Coast as we have known it!

Today, the people of the former Noosa Shire were given the opportunity to vote for de-amalgamation of the Sunshine Coast Council and have effectively voted to succeed!  After five years as one City, one third of us is leaving!

For this blog, it means little, fifteen kilometres or so less coastline to cover, and some pretty scenery, a market or two that will remain unphotographed, but plenty of the good bits are left to share.

The timing of the separation is not yet known, but I think I may bid Noosa a Ceremonial farewell on the 15th March, our fifth anniversary!

February 2013


This photo is a curiosity for me from a number of perspectives, the least of them being that the intervening five years have rendered our front garden unrecognisable from this shot.   Secondly in an age of disposable electronics, I am happy to say that "that" new camera is still serving me well.   I have chosen to publish in a different crop format of course, and I would hope that even if I haven't got any better, results with it are coming a little easier!

I have a new camera and am just dying to get out and see if it works, but since it arrived our daily rainfalls have been 50, 42, and 72 mm respectively.   That's 2, 2 3/4 and 3 inches near enough, so the closest I can actually get to "out" is onto our front verandah between squalls.

The bare patches  in the lawn were badly burnt before the rain started, but now I suspect it may have actually drowned.

Sigh.

If tomorrow's post is similar, I will have no need to explain why!

Rock and Roll (from July 2016)


Rock and Roll George was a larger than life personality, in the days when "personalities" were different, not just talking heads on television.  This car was built as a replica of George's (which is now housed in the Queensland Museum.)

Here is a short Youtube clip in memory of George.
