See It Sunday - Fresh.

I took this one out in my backyard. I think it fits the theme because it is still fresh and my dogs haven't trampled it yet!.

Thursday Challenge - Festival.

This one was taken in the city recently. It was not actually a festival but I think it has a festival feel.

Tuesday Challenge - Gold.

I took this one the same time I took the one for Macroday as the Macroday challenge is Gold too.
I'm posting 2 pics because I liked them both.

These bricks are the tiles (some kind of sandstone) layed outside Federation Square in Melbourne, Australia.
They are stunning to look at, each on a work of art.

PhotoSharks Challenge - Jump.

This photo was taken at the football.

Great fun game with lots of atmosphere at the game.
Jumping to gain control of the ball.

The dolphin jumps out of the water with the girl on his nose and throws her into the air in front of him.

Macroday - Cap.

This is a macro photo of filter cap on the "AirCap" we use when dealing with the dusty environment of the pigeon lofts.
Great invention.
You put the cap on which is just a baseball type cap.
It has a face shield and a filter and fan mounted on the top of the cap.
The fan blows filtered air down across your face and out the sides of the faceshield creating a positive pressure under the facemask that prevents non filtered air from entering.

Tuesday Challenge - Graffiti.

I actually found it hard to find some graffiti in my neighborhood. I guess thats a good sign!
I went for a drive around and found this one and also another that was in a language I don't know so I didn't post it up, Who knows what it might say!
This ones pretty good though, Very neat and tidy.
It would be interesting to know the meaning of it!

LensDay Challenge - Green.

I took this photo when I discovered this little visitor on my lemon tree.
I love taking shots like these and love the super macro feature on the Olympus camera.

Thursday Challenge - Shapes.

This photo was taken on board a submarine at the Maritime Museum in Sydney.
I loved how all the valve handles lined up looked like a little garden.
Great shapes!
