Week 51: Rewind

Daniel

This is a redo of the black and white theme. It’s a style I’ve always wanted to do more of and these white lilies provided a great opportunity.

Debbie

I’m not sure if this is a rewind to the themes of Summer, water, blue or play. We cycled 10kms to the beach at Karrebaeksminde (in Denmark) for a quick dip where I spotted these two elderly ladies using a ladder to enter the water for their (presumably) daily swim. The blue water, the blue sky, the heatwave conditions and the beach made me stop for a moment to remember where I was! Watching these two ladies made me smile and reminded me that we’re never too old to do something we enjoy.

A ‘look up’ at the former Avnø ‘transport’ facility (airfield) revealed the ‘geometry’ and ‘style’ of the staircase ‘frame’ and a flowing and lack of ‘corners’ feel in this ‘from the hip‘ shot. The ‘in the mirror’ feel to the shot highlights a detailed and intricate structure. Avnø is now a Naturcenter, providing a conduit to the ‘natural world’, mainly seals and many species of bird. This photo was taken on a lovely ‘blue‘ ‘Summer‘ afternoon.

Melanie

Green fields, trickling stream and a solitary white horse grazing all under the watchful eye of the unmistakeable warm golden hues of the summer sun heading off to bed.

Not the sharpest of shots and it’s been cropped as I didn’t have my good camera on me and this was an impromptu find whilst out walking Ozzy but I like the shot so please excuse any poor quality and bask in that golden hour light.

Sharon

The setting winter sun silhouettes the elderly couple as they wander hand-in-hand towards the winter of their lives.

Tim

Lost in concentration. Lego is calling. Play requires focus, planning, imagination, and time; it’s serious business.

Week 21: Play

Alison

Waiting for people to arrive to our Christmas Craft Beer + Pizza Bonanza (it was meant to be brewery bike ride tour, but Melbourne is supposedly awaiting a deluge), I stacked up these games for a quick photo, and left them there, ready for our pals. They’re playing Jenga right now. I should go and join in.

Daniel

Everyone was starting to head indoors just as I got to the park because of the approaching storm, thankfully one guy kept playing and I got a few shots of my own.

Debbie

Visiting Hobbiton was a surreal experience with lots of attention to detail such as these Hobbit clothes hanging on the line. I like to think they’re the play clothes of the Hobbit children who were all hiding on the day we visited. It’s playful details like this that make it a great attraction and immersed you into the location making you forget its a movie set (the fact that I managed to get a shot with no one in the background was also an amazing feat given the crowds there!).

Grant

This kookaburra spends a lot of the day surveying the backyard from many different vantage points, waiting for a snake to come out and play. I have also spent a fair amount of time over the years waiting for the rarely seen spectacle of a kookaburra picking up a snake, then dropping it from a great height so that it is stunned, before thrashing it about and making a meal of it.

Mel

We work hard, we play hard at Tower House.

Sharon

Word play…

Tim

Nobody wants to play any more…

Next week…

Our week 22 theme is: Celebrate (it’s Deb’s choice!).
