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 2: Winter

Alison

If there’s not a lot of colour and not a lot of warmth outside, sometimes you’ve just gotta make it for yourself.

Daniel

Winter in Brisbane means crisp mornings and beautiful blue sky days.

Debbie


Raindrops keep falling….no snow, or frost photos, just rain drops and blue skies.

Grant

Winter = July = Le Tour – late nights beside a raging fire watching magnificent scenery and an absorbing contest (particularly in this year’s Tour de Carnage); and taking in the vocabulary  – maillot jaune, echelon, gruppetto, peloton, soigneur, domestique, Lantern Rouge…

The mountain stages are amazing spectacles – the crowds go nuts, the riders are amazing and the scenery breathtaking.

Mel

Although it’s actually summer in the UK you would be surprised to know the weather at the moment is colder and wetter than my family have in actual winter in Southern Hemisphere. Winter for me is mainly about football (soccer) season so today I was out in the pouring rain running around getting drenched, laughing and training hard getting ready for our upcoming season pink rain coat and all.

Sharon

To me, winter is boots. My inside boots and my outside boots. Alison’s aunty made the inside boots (to my exacting specifications – which just meant ‘make them the same as Alison’s’). I wear my outside boots to work every day! Yes, every single day – they’re the comfy-ist boots ever! I’m not a ‘shoe’ person, but I do like my boots. I just need some gumboots now to finish off the set…

Tim

Winter in Melbourne is all greyness, mist, icy air, and umbrellas. Umbrellas everywhere! Which is great fun for those of us whose eyes are at roughly the height of your average umbrella point. So, I duck and weave my way to work, dodging raindrops and sharp metal objects, my hands turning blue in the cold, and yet somehow I still mostly prefer it to summer…
