Weekly Photo Challenge: Monochromatic (2)

I don’t normally post 2 photo challenges in a week, but thought this photo fits the theme very well, being green on green on green.

Not my garden though, but a public rooftop space. I’m looking forward to more rooftops like this one!

I’ve once been lucky enough to see kangaroos bounding across the landscape in gathering dusk. They looked wild and free and fierce.

Weekly Photo Challenge: On the way

The train between Sapporo and Otaru in Hokkaido, Japan, runs just beside Ishikari Bay. Although I was looking forward to seeing the coast, this view wasn’t what I had in mind! The tide must have been really high. Thank goodness the weather was good.

For shoe repair jobs, we have a choice – the professional in the air-conditioned shopping mall, or the Uncle on the sidewalk. Uncle doesn’t have very regular working hours, so it isn’t a good idea to leave your shoes with him. But he’s good for short jobs if you could wait a while, which is what I did.


Uncle charged me too little, he gave me too much change. Is it because he has forgotten inflation? Or perhaps he miscounted, and was embarrassed to admit it. Maybe I was the first customer of the day, though I doubt it. First customers are often given special discounts in the believe it will bring in more custom. Whatever it was, I told all my friends to go to this Uncle please, and remember to bring exact change.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Afloat

I know I haven’t posted for awhile – been rather busy, but all is well 🙂

Here’s a butterfly hovering and looking for all the world as though it is afloat on a cushion of air. Truth to tell, it was a lucky shot, as the butterfly was flitting about so quickly!
