Sunday Selections – Mount Wellington

It’s time for Sunday Selections with Kim at frogpondsrock.

The idea is to publish some previously unseen photos that have been sitting around on your computer forever, but I seem to spend so much time on my recent photos that I never have time to look through old ones.

That’s the case this week. My photos are from Mount Wellington in Hobart. Our friend’s father was in town for the day, so we took him for a drive up the Mountain. I think the last time I was there was with Slabs in 1996.

I was expecting a freezing, windy day where we’d get out of the car, take a couple of photos and get back in the car again before we froze. But the weather was quite pleasant and not windy at all.

Here are the photos.

This rock formation caught my eye.
Here I played around with the Clarity filter in Camera+

Next time I’m going to look at this close-up.

I love the rocks up here

How to deal with a child who won’t have his photo taken.

Now I’ve been up there, this is another place I’m itching to go back to with my camera and explore more.

P365 – Day 240 – some of what we did today

This morning I looked into Juniordwarf’s room and this is what I saw:

He said he was lining up all the numbers. He’d obviously run out of room at the bed and had to continue the sequence under his bed. He was taking one number or one picture under his bed at a time, then emerging (backwards) to get the next one.

Today was a pretty quiet Sunday, so I decided to post a few pictures of what we did.

Inspired by an Instagram friend, we did chalk shadow drawings.

Slabs created his own artwork.

Juniordwarf and I went on a two hour walk and explored the (disused) local railway line along the way.

I wasn’t sure if we should go, as the sky looked like this:

We looked at the daffodils when we got home.

And after all that collapsed on the couch.
