Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge

This photo was taken years ago, on a trip to Melbourne.  This was the first time we’d been in the newly built up area on the old docks .  I decided to take of photo of Mr R along with the scenery. I loved all the straight lines in every direction. I spent some time making sure I got it ‘just so’ and when I finished we rushed off as it began to spit drizzly rain.

“Didn’t you see me behind the pole?” Mr R asked after a moment.
“What?” Confused.
He repeated his question, and started laughing when he saw I hadn’t noticed him step behind the pole. At the time, I didn’t know if I should believe him or not. The FinePix A607camera has a piddly little viewer and it was before I got my glasses.  I’m sure this photo fits this Odd Ball Photo Challenge just fine!

Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge: Spider.

Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge: Week 29

spider night

Taken with the FujiFilm FinePix A607 last summer. Every night, this spider would weave a new web between the grapevine and the tall rose-bush – at least five feet apart. Countless times I would walk into it going to the clothesline at night. On the day that a flock of birds raided the grapes, the spider vanished, no doubt gobbled up too.

This photo taken years and years ago – with the FinePix A607 camera – Vika was trying out the taste of grapes from a low hanging bunch. I couldn’t believe my eyes. She really did eat some, but then she played with them like mini tennis balls.





LEFT: This is Ginge, my daughter’s cat, back in the ’80s. He had a habit of chewing cardboard. He’s been at this box. I think this was when he was recovering from being run over. It was hilarious to watch, as he spat the little bits quite a distance, he didn’t just drop them over the side!

Odd Ball Photo: Windmills

Cee’s Odd Ball Challenge: Week 22


This lovely photo was taken one Christmas, some years ago: the line of grandchildren form this family is both longer and taller. It is good how so much fun can be had with the least expensive of gifts.  No noses were hurt – the windmills were windmilling furiously, but only at an angle different than the ones held at in this photo.
