When all else fails, switch to black and white and tell Ansel you liked his work.

One evening above the glasshouses - 1 of 4

Not much to say here really, we had friends staying from overseas, they were having a good time in the water at the beach, which meant by the time we got to the top of the hill we'd missed the sunset.

Just.

How it begins.


I wonder how many great cricketing careers have begun at the beach, on the sand or among the Norfolk leaf litter.

The photographer's shadow


I suspect I could have avoided it, but for once I thought my shadow may tell part of the story.

Just what that story is I will leave to the beholder.

The musicians meet.


My friend Manu is a French musician who speaks little English, but he speaks music, and was so taken by the sounds of an accordion being played in the streets of Australia that he just had to say "thanks"!

Vintage.


It's the roof rack which captured my imagination.  We used to use them before board racks and gutter fixings were invented.  Originally they had big rubber suction caps to keep them neatly on the roof, clamped down to the gutters and of course if they were overloaded resulted in four neat dents in the roof.

Oh for the good old days!

and now we are NINE!

 

Hat's off to all who've been following this blog for nine years today! 

It's been an interesting time, and I am no closer to discovering why or what it's about,  but I can say with certainty that it's a photoblog not a photography one, and despite some misgivings from time to time, here's to making it ten!

I would have liked to have posted a shot of exploding fireworks or a birthday candle or something, but all I had that came close was this collection of hats at the Caloundra markets.

Beach Beetle

To my great shame I don't have a link to the photographer who sells these super surf shots at the Bulcock Street markets, perhaps I'll find it later, but none the less he knows, as we all do, that old VW's and surf photos go hand in glove.

Just why that is for others I'm not sure, but I know I certainly had one, admittedly older than this example to carry my surfboards.

A lot of bikes


At two hundred dollars a pop and destined never to be recycled - no pun intended, there is evidently no shortage of customers!

From China With Love.

I went into the bike shop this afternoon to buy a couple of tyres and some brake parts for my wife's vintage roadster.

That sounds a bit hipster I suppose, but we bought it more than forty years ago, which must make it genuine vintage!

The trouble is, for the price of the parts, we could buy one of these colourful beasts that have a little less rust showing, but will have been landfill for thirty-nine years in forty years time!

It has to stop, the "everything is disposable" mentality.

Shoot a gun down the street


It's a "Way" apparently, not a street, but that doesn't mean I'm at risk of being hit by a car when I stop to take a photograph.   It's a scary thought, the prospect of these four lanes being filled with traffic at some time in the future.    Hopefully that will be after my time!

Where we shop


Honestly, it's hard to come to terms with the lack of people sometimes.   We have friends from Asia who feel unsettled walking our streets because they are spookily deserted to them.   How would you like to own a business here, where palm trees outnumber customers?

It's different in holiday times of course, and it's pleasant as a customer, but hopefully as our population grows it will bring more people and therefore more security for the traders.

Banners no more


Again, without searching these pages, I do recall a photograph of a series of banners on this shop, remarking that they may not be there forever.  Well they weren't.   The poles are there should someone feel generous once more, but I suspect that the maintenance of those strong colours is stretching the budget as it is.

The end of the world is nigh.


Actually it's just a bit jaded and faded, the Workout World building facade in that Home Centre that's featured here many times.   When times get tough, just pop up and see how the buildings are maturing.

An explanation


When Tooway Lake fills to overflowing, it bursts out into the ocean where ever it feels like it.  It appears that someone in council doesn't like that happening, so when he moon is just right and the water just so, a digger arrives to create a lake-emptying channel in a spot where council wants it to be.

Then, in the dead of night, the creek sneaks back where it was going to go anyway.

It's a fascinating battle to watch.

Repurposing

I wonder if at sometime this old outboard motor, disguised as a letterbox will be discovered by someone who restores old outboard motors?

Left over almost black and white

It's funny how some things stick with one.   In one of my first ever art classes, I was harangued  or perhaps berated by my teacher for a poster design which featured lettering that dropped vertically down the page.

"Your eyes are side by side" she said " if we were meant to read like that we'd have them one above the other".   A lot more than half a century later, it is a rare sign in that format that meets my approval.

I wonder if the residents at number five under two have thought about that.

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!
