SUMMERTIME THOUGHTS

sunset red

I have had a few coloured silhouettes this week with the Sun blazing as bushfires burn. I saw whales, as well. Off the Beach on my birthday.

AND MEANWHILE – AS I DREAM OF SUMMERTIME.

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE : HAPPY. PART 1.

MADELINE’S DINOSAUR.

dinosaur maddy

I’ve used my Madeline’s dinosaur as placeholder while I take a look at the other bloggers. I work my posts through Windows Live Writer and haven’t yet found a way to use the photo galleries on it. It looks like I will be driven to using WordPress own unwieldy post format but first I shall take a look at what makes the other people happy. The Dinosaur makes me happy because it is my granddaughter’s winning entry in a competition for the Children’s Hospital and will be hung in a regional hospital. It brought her to Sydney for a visit and a couple of days of city life. Her Dad made sure she visited the Museum and met a reconstructed dinosaur at full scale.

OTHER HAPPY BLOGGERS – WITH GALLERIES.

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE : MINE

Mine. Is there a place, object, or view that’s entirely yours, or you’re a bit selfish or possessive about? Is it a feeling you feel when you look at the photo, or perhaps an unwillingness to share? I get rather possessive about that first cup of coffee in the morning. It’s definitely mine and I want it all to myself.

Share a picture that means MINE to you!

MINE.

MY SPOT IN THE WORLD.

THIS IS A NEW PHOTO. ITS MY SPOT FOR THE WARM SEASON.

029

THE YAAN: When I think of MINE, I think of the place where I sit to write. I’ve almost always had one because I sit for a good deal of the time, at windows – most often.  This is MY place at the moment. The chair is my bucket chair from Grafton and you can see the burn on the back where it almost caught fire on the heater a few years back. It has horse hair in the padding. Real horse hair. The table is from Andrew Hegedus up in Ulmarra. A proper wooden table. I look to the East from where I sit, out over the paddocks down to Valery Road and although I can’t see it, I know the river is there and the ocean not much further along. The only person who sits in my place other than me is my daughter. And sometimes my son, but he lives 1000km away and can’t come very often to visit, This place is MINE.

OTHER PLACES. OTHER TIMES. THE SPOTS I HAVE CALLED MINE.

THESE ARE OLD PHOTOS OF OTHER TIMES AND PLACES.

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE : THE PERSON

A COUNTRY WOMAN ON THE OLD STONE STEPS OF THE ROCKS IN SYDNEY.

109

 

YES. FEET ON EARTH. KNOCK ON WOOD. TOUCH STONE. GOOD LUCK TO ALL. DESERT SOLITAIRE. EDWARD ABBEY.

THE YAAN : The challenge showed a solitary woman so today I hunted up some shots of the Solitary People. I was looking in the country photos but have chosen the CITY ones. The Rocks is part of the first settlement of Australia in the late 1700s. It’s a tourist centre and generally packed with explorers – but  – now and then – a solitary moment. For me and for the didgeridoo player amongst the crowds of Circular Quay. 081
