Weekly Photo Challenge: Missing

I’ve been doing the Weekly Photo Challenge for over a year now but this week it’s missing and I’m missing it! Rather than do nothing I’ve decided my topic this week will be “Missing” and here is my photo.

Hope the usual poster is OK and the real challenge is back again soon. 🙂

Weekly Photo Challenge: Split-Second Story

Split-Second

I have to admit this one is from my archives. There was a group of Pelicans near the jetty at Milang, South Australia and we soon discovered why. It was the spot where the fishermen came to clean their catch & from the fish’s eye it looks like it’s still capable of thinking, “Oh No!!!!”

Weekly Photo Challenge: Letters

letters

I think this gravestone is interesting not only because of the two letter styles for “s”  and the way letters are squashed in near the edges of the stone but also the little letters, “th” which are carved before the “8” that they relate to. It wouldn’t be possible to read it that way.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Threshold

Not very attractive but fits the criteria! A few months ago our station was closed, unfortunately yobbos thought it was a lark to rip the sign off the fence and toss it down the gully. It was lying on the threshold of the culvert so that when the rains came it would have been swept down, eventually making its way to the coast unless it was caught in one of the “Trash Traps”. I’ve now removed it to make sure that won’t happen.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflection

Fountain of Tears by Silvio Apponyi

A seat is provided here just for reflection. The fountain is a memorial to the “Stolen Generation“. At the top is a carrying dish called a Coolamon and it represents all the babies and children taken from their parents on the presumption they would have a “better life” in white man’s culture. The faces represent all the family members mourning the loss of their children and the flowing water represents the tears which flowed from everyone affected.

It is a very special place to sit and reflect. You can find more information here: http://www.mitchamcouncil.sa.gov.au/page.aspx?u=1249

Weekly Photo Challenge: Inside

I think this was the Swan Song for my Canon 350D, I wanted to try and get some better photos without the awful reflections but the camera has just stopped working. It didn’t respond to a fresh battery so I’ve shut it away in the cupboard. If it doesn’t come back to life I won’t be weeping and wailing, the dust on the sensor and now hot pixels have been spoiling my enjoyment.

 

 

 

Weekly Photo Challenge: Perspective

I spent today trying to get a photo that matched today’s criteria, ” post a photo which is not what it seems to be”  but just couldn’t get anything I was happy with so am using some I took a while a ago.
