NEXT WEEK’S CHALLENGE –

Drift Wood


Friday Foto Finder; Coin

Over the years I have accumulated a number of coins which are not legal tender in Australia.

They have ended up in the bottom of a desk drawer.

Here is a small sample.

An interesting quirk of the English language I love is that “coin” can be both singular and plural.

Do you have any coin to share?

Post it on your blog then tell us about it, in the comments below.

Next week the subject will be; “Drift Wood”.

 

Friday Foto Finder; Fruit Tree

On what was then Marmaduke Hutton’s Peninsular Farm, in Maylands, these trees were planted between 1835 and 1840.

The Pear tree in the background appears to have stopped producing fruit while the Pomegranate in the centre is obviously still producing prolifically.

The old farm is now a part of the National Heritage.

Do you have a Fruit Tree to share?

Post it on your blog then tell us about it, in the comments below.

Next week the subject will be; “COIN”.

Friday Foto Finder; Dust

In a desert, out on a dry salt lake and expecting rain.

I was surprised when I saw a low brown cloud on the horizon.

Excepting that cloud was at ground level and the horizon was too close!

I only just had time to make it to shelter.

And the dust storm only lasted an hour.

Next week the subject will be; “GABLE”.

Friday Foto Finder; STRANGE

This is not a photograph of a landscape.

It is a photograph taken looking down a bank, the green bit, at water in a river.

Yet there are only two obvious clues that this is so.

The tree branches on the left which can be seen to be a reflection.

And the strangely misshapen bird on the right.

Knowing the what the photo IS and seeing what it looks like

is STRANGE!

Have you something “Strange” in your collection of images?

Post it on your blog then tell us about it, in the comments below.

Next week the subject will be; “WORKER”.

 

Friday Foto Finder; Piscator

I know, I know! Why not just use “Fisher”?

Because I was doing a crossword and I found “Piscator”.

Anyway, I searched high and low in my photo archive and could not find a single fisherman.

So I chose this image of a deprived fisherman in the desert, desperately casting over a dry salt lake.

PISCATOR1

Then I realised that not all fishers are human.

So here is a genuine Piscator.

PISCATOR2

So, having scratched your head at my pretension,

do you have a PISCATOR, or even a fisherman to share?

Post it on your blog then tell us about it, in the comments below.

Next week the subject will be; “STRANGE”.
