All-Time Favourite

Author’s note: I’m so sad to see the Weekly Photo Challenge come to an end. It has been a regular source of inspiration for generating posts, and often led to a different way to see one of my images. It has also helped connect me with so many wonderful bloggers with whom otherwise, I may not have had chance to connect. While, I don’t understand, nor really appreciate, the reasons behind the decision to cease The Daily Post as of May 31, I am compelled to participate one last time…

Unlikely

It’s unlikely the owner of this car will be driving it again! This pic was snapped during a flood in my town. An unsuspecting young lady parked in her usual spot before heading to work, oblivious to the numerous flood warnings being broadcast. I’m curious why she never noticed she had the whole car park to herself! The second photo shows the vehicle about fifteen minutes later – you can only just see the roof! The flood water rose unbelievably fast (and the ducks are loving it)!

Awakening Tastebuds

A delicious Pinot Noir from Passing Clouds Winery near Daylesford, Victoria…

Nothing like a good wine or craft beer to awaken the tastebuds!

Nambucca Heads

Nambucca Heads, on the mid-north coast of NSW, is a very special place. We have spent much time here over the last few years, visiting my ageing grandparents in a nursing home. It is with great sadness that our last visit, just last week, was to say farewell for good. This beautiful beach has helped soothe our souls and offer comfort during our grief…

Young surfer, Makua, befriends a Hawaiian monk seal, Kila. Kila helps Makua get lined up at  the best spot at Sunset Beach and gives him good advice when he gets in trouble at school. Makua, in return, nurses Kila back to health when he is injured. I think this statue captures the tale beautifully, demonstrating the friendship and bond between the pair.

Prompt: Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge – Story. This week, be a visual storyteller.

The Portal

The Portal at Steampunk HQ in Oamaru is a “retro-futuristic mirror and lighting installation that features original glowing light sculptures with a theme of skulls and mythology”. It’s the closest I’ll ever get to feeling out of this world

The River Gang

Reblogged for Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge – Tour Guide

By Sarah

Brassy sunlight streams through the trees. The trail is bracing and I can see my breath stretching in front of me, as if leading the way.

I bask in the sounds of nature and listen to the early morning bird song as I walk. Magpies mainly. They are warbling and gargling their happy tunes. It lifts my heart.

I round a bend in the track and I catch myself thinking how lucky I am to live in such a beautiful part of Australia. Rural enough to have a bush walk on my doorstep any day I please, but country town enough to not want for anything.

I cross the swing bridge and stare into the almost perfect mirror image reflected by the still waters of the Ovens River. The calm, glass-like water soothing my busy mind.

About a kilometre into the walk, is the rail bridge. Every time I do…
