Red and White

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week is the Colors of Red, White or Red and White together. A wonderful reason to hunt through your photo library or go out hunting with the camera! Here are mine:


Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Fire

This week it is Fire that captures our attention! I chose simple fire photos, enjoying my search through the archives, sidetracked here and there, but eventually producing these images.

Thanks to Cee for mounting this fascinating challenge of the five elements!

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Wood

Cee says: “This week your challenge is to show off a few photographs of wood. Wood/Spring: Tree, Wind, Moisture, Air, Minerals, Ink, Mind, Rubber, Paper, Plants, Poison, Wax, Dissolve, Carbon, Clouds, Health, Space”

I stuck with wood: Trees growing in the forest, a stack of timber for winter warmth, carved timber in a palace, majestic timbers in a bridge, a fine timber cello hidden inside its case, old timber doors, timber supports, cladding and roof shingles on an old French toll house.

Where would mankind be without wood? It is a wonderful renewable resource that has been tended and cared for by humanity for thousands of years … until today, when unrenewable resources  are used more and more for construction, and forests are destroyed for development and money-making. I look forward to a world where wood regains its true value before it is too late for the whole planet.


Cees Fun Foto Challenge: Water

I live on the coast, just a short walk through the bushland to the beaches that surround us here. All day and night the sounds of the sea whisper or crash around us, salt drifts in the air, sea birds glide overhead. Here are some recent beach photos of the ocean/lagoon in their different moods.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Metal

Thanks to Cee for her Metal Fun Foto Challenge, which sent me trawling through the archives. Hope you enjoy these few images of different metals made into quite a variety of objects, from precious gold to workaday iron!
