My new car.


There, waiting to get into the port, with surfers waiting for the sharks.

The queue


There are a couple of times a day when it appears that marching in single file is the norm, as everyone wants to get their feet just a little bit wet.

Homeward Bound


After many months away we have made the first steps in a homeward direction.  This fellow will be there before us though.

Pixie?

Do you ever look at footprints in the sand and imagine what sort of shoes would fit them?

Budding property developer.

Why settle for one little castle when you can develop an entire estate.

RED

This month's theme Day theme is "Red", a colour synonymous with danger, and although perhaps the only danger associated with this photograph would be if one were to have a nasty fall from one.

Curiously and quite coincidentally because this photo was taken at Wurtulla on the Sunshine Coast, the colours of the bikes make it all very reminiscent of China, a country know for being "Red".

Shadebaking.

Shadebaking is an Australian custom not well understood by those from a different climate.

Trolleys

It seems that they are called something different in each part of the world where they can be found.  Here they are shopping trolleys.

Triptych


I do like playing around shop fronts, finding my photos are out of focus and calling it art.

Cheeky!

Perhaps the Sunshine Coast's greatest rival for tourist dollars (if you don't count Bali) is the Gold Coast, barely 150 kilometres to our south.    Here it is advertising on our turf, hoping we'll all pack up our zimmer frames and join them!

Plug and Play


The take up rate for electric cars is not very high in Australia, but some are ahead of the game, and while shopping centres offer free fuel, why not?

Look out for that wall!

If you hit the wall you'll have to pay for the damage to the posts as well!

Fresh Daily

Some may have noticed that this blog has not been Fresh and Daily for some time - a situation I hope to remedy in the not too distant future. In the meantime, perhaps a blackboard can be a reminder that things can change!

This photo is my interpretation of this month's City Daily Photo theme day "Black"... more can be found at this link.

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.

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

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?

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!
