.........Pea Green Boat

A recent 52 Frames topic was "My Bed Room" - and given that I have a long term ownership dispute with Mr. Hudson over this particular piece of real estate I thought this would be appropriate picture.

I also like the reference to rather well known Edward Lear poem!

PS: replies may be slow this week due to jet lag and overseas travel.

Pelican Sky

These were taken while ago - but I am always amazed that a bird this big can fly!

These birds are Australasian Pelican, gliding in to land on Port Phillp Bay.

You can find more sky shots at Sky Watch Friday.  SM

Wild Bird Wednesday 200 - A few Highlights

Greetings, in July of 2012 I posted the first Wild Bird Wednesday link up (following about 90 World Bird Wednesdays over at Pine River Review) - at that point I would have laughed if you said I would still be doing it 200 weeks later!

Well, I am, and for a good number of you, so are you!

As is the way with my life, things are busy and my planned 'birthday' celebration has been reduced to a 'highlights' reel from the last 100 WBWs.  So, here there are:

Arctic Tern, Farne Islands, UK

Brown Noddy, Lord Howe Island, Australia
Crested Shrike Tit, Phillip Island, Australia

Gang Gang Cockatoo, Halls Gap, Australia

Black Headed Gulls, Seahouse, UK

Jackdaw, Bempton Cliffs, UK

Laughing Kookaburra, Halls Gap, Australia 
Masked Lapwing, Churchill Island, Australia
Puffin, Farne Islands, UK
Tree Sparrows, Bempton Cliffs, UK
Hope some of your favourite shots are here.  The WBW community is stable about about 45 to 50 bloggers each week, but there is always room for more.  So, as a special 200th birthday activity, why not share the link for WBW through any social media that your use - Facebook, Twitter and such like!

Now - for the 200th time, it's your turn.  Click the blue button and off you go.

Powerhouse Museum

The Powerhouse Museum is a museum that focuses on technology in Sydney.  We had a good time there and I would recommend it as a place to pass a few hours.

I was not in 'photographer mode' during this visit - but I did stop to take this low angle, long exposure  of these planes.  If you look at the left side of the picture, you can see some 'ghosts' - i.e. people walking through the field of view during the shot.  I always like that kind of thing.
