Beauty in Unexpected Places


  1. yes, let's join in th4e fun.

  2. Is this motley crew a group of sandpipers or gulls or what?

  3. Love it! They are beautiful - peaceful, too!

  4. Beautiful definitely - - but I reckon that birds on water are always beautiful!

  5. Robert - they are herring gulls I think. And I know I've put them under 'beauty...' but really, they are cold and bored and waiting for the cold weather to go and the sun to come out... Like me. Except the bored bit. I don't recall ever having been bored. I'm insulating the ceiling at the moment with pink batts!

  6. BERT Are you stuck?
    COLIN I think I am. Are you stuck Nobby?
    NOBBY Errr. Yeah it seems I am.
    WALTER We're all bloody stuck!
    BERT Posing for "Beauty in Unexpected Places" is no bloody fun!
    COLIN Next time we're flying over Madame De Chevalle's mansion let's all drop a "message"!
    WALTER Too right mate! We'll whitewash the bloody place!
    NOBBY Don't you mean shitewash?
    OTHERS Hee-hee-hee!

  7. When I wrote my latest post the other day I thought about you out there in NZealand. Did you feel the earthquake all the way in Bay of Plenty? Or was it highly overrated?

  8. :) Funny, I posted something similar on my photo blog as well, today. Simple pleasures are all too often overlooked!

  9. hey, Kathy!

    happy that we stopped by your blog today, glad to see that you've not lost your "eye" for the beautiful.



  10. N.B. - The post in question is now my next-to-latest post.
