This week’s Fun Photo Challenge needs the letter g

It’s an easy topic this week, thanks to Cee.   Being a wildlife enthusiast I have a few Gs that I can think of.

Fun Photo Challenge 27 June 2017

This week’s fun photo challenge calls for all kinds of furniture.  Here is my take on it – Shabby Chic at Diesel and Creme, Barrydale, Western Cape, South Africa


I love the cushions.

Fabulous outdoor decor!


The Chinese Garden of Friendship

Today’s Fun Photo Prompt is Gardens

The Chinese Garden of Friendship is a Chinese garden in Chinatown, Sydney, Australia. It follows the design of typical private gardens from the Ming Dynasty.  One can dress up in traditional costume to help gain an insight into the into Chinese heritage and culture. It’s a tranquil and peaceful place to chill out in the middle of the city.

These photographs were taken on a visit there in January 2014.



Cee’s Fun Photo Challenge

I am submitting a few photographs for Cee’s Fun Photo Challenge. This week’s subject is Winter and/or Water.  I’ve chosen water and the place where these are taken is called False Bay Ecology Park where there is a wagon wheel of settling ponds that attract water birds.  These were taken on a sunny winter’s day in 2011.
