Two kinds of lookout.

Come to think of it, I wouldn't mind turning the one in the foreground into a beach house!

What?


Everyone does it.  Just standing at the water's edge, looking for something.  Looking for what though?

Rain.


The storm will be here in a moment, but in the meantime we can enjoy that weird sub-tropical light that occurs before the storm.

Construction Blues


Maybe this would have been better on an orange day.

Today's theme day of course is "Blue" - if you really want a dose of the blues, check out more at the theme day pages.

Wake me.


Sometimes it's hard to stay awake, specially after the sun goes down.

Almost evening.

No twilight, just a big switch in the sky which turns off the sun.

Tiresome.


The view is so tiresome everyone just wants to lie down.

Deserted.


Shelly Beach always looks lonely.  It's hard to imagine that it's little more than a few hundred metres from the centre of town as the Seagull flies.

Pink.


When did the colour pink become synonymous with ice-cream?

Inverted.


Trying to get an idea of what the view must be like from the Northern hemisphere.

Macaranga


Not a cult dance, the Macaranga is a tropical tree, the seed pod of which is a sticky ball which ... well it just sticks to your feet.  It's better than standing on a prickle, but not by much.

Stragglers


Even though the sun has long gone, some stragglers persist, trying to eke the last out of their day at the beach.  Or are they just trying to feed the sharks?

The Marvellous Cruising Sunset.


If you've ever heard of someone disappearing into the sunset, this is probably how it was done.

Dumpers.

When the waves drop vertically like this onto shallow water they are called dumpers,

Anyone who suffers the misfortune of trying to catch a ride on the wrong wave risks breaking a surfboard, gravel rash, or even a broken neck.

The lifesavers need to be particularly vigilant despite most of their charges being barely knee deep.

Bluebottles!


In some countries, "bluebottles" are merely bothersome insects.  Here they are a kind of floating jellyfish, with a bubble on one end and long trails of stinging tentacles that follow.

It would be a bit harsh to say our summer was ruined by them, but we couldn't swim for quite a few weeks as easterly winds brought something of an inundation to our shores!

Accident.


I am not sure why I liked this completely accidental photo of my printer enough to call it "worthy" of this blog... perhaps it's because of its sunny disposition... or it might be the mark of a desperate man!

Maroochydore Sunset.


I saw a movie a few years ago, or was it twenty, called "Siam Sunset".  The title described a particular colour and the plot turned around a bizarre quest to rediscover it.

I wonder how many people are looking for "Maroochydore Sunset"?

Lighting.


The little LED street standards don't light up much of the boardwalk, but they do make an interesting reflection.

I guess if they'd wanted us to make sense of the body language, they'd have moved into the sunshine.

Bumper Stickers

What is the collective noun for "Bumper Stickers"?

I don't know, nor do I know why I wish I'd had the Warning one on display a number of times during my working life!

Yellow/

Today's City Daily Photo Theme is "Yellow" which is probably a bright and breezy kind of colour to once again attempt a return to regular posting on this blog.

"Regular"... well once a month counts as a fall back doesn't it?

Sea shells by the sea shore.


If it's broken it's not collectable apparently, but I think it has a place in our garden now anyway.

Summer Evening


Waiting for the bad moon to rise.  It never did, so we snapped a quick shot with the phone and wandered home in the balminess of it all.

Off Home Then


The last of the day's sunshine heads off down the path away from the beach, it's job done for another day. 

With a bit of luck it'll be back tomorrow.

Beach Combing.


Sometimes, when we are wandering along the beach late in the day, we find things that are worth keeping.

Overgreen.

I'm back after a lengthy break from social media if not social life, and while I've been busy elsewhere the jungle that is our back yard began to encroach where it shouldn't.

We've had plenty of heat, and despite the monster winds and seas and threats of storms, precious little rain, yet the green engulfs us!

This month's City Daily Photo Theme Day subject is "Green", co-incidentally.  If next month's is "lots of gardening" I should be right for that as well.

To check out lots of other interpretations of the theme don't forget to visit the theme day gallery at:

On each point, the rocks have a distinct formation.
