“Cyclist’s Favourite Treats, And Where To Find Them In Lednar’s Town”

OK, I shamelessly copied and pasted Greg’s last post title with a few alterations but doing something as easy as you can appeals to me. I rode my bike up to Kalamunda’s Sunday Growers Market yesterday hoping to get some fresh Blue Mana Crabbs but they’re not in season so I ended up going into … Continue reading "“Cyclist’s Favourite Treats, And Where To Find Them In Lednar’s Town”"

Scavenger Challenge..I’ve got a bit of catching up to do.

Well I’ve just been riding around taking the odd photo for this months scavenge challenge. Whilst taking the Feature Photo, I did wonder what the parents of the children in the playground behind me thought of this strange cyclist suddenly stopping and taking a photo of a springy seesaw. Another ‘weirdo’ on a bike I … Continue reading "Scavenger Challenge..I’ve got a bit of catching up to do."

Polygonised Animal Statue Canopy Thingamajigs

Well this Polygon Challenge was doing my head in, I was getting desperate and just taking a photo of a stop sign was becoming a distinct possibility. Then as I passed these new statues at South Perth I did a closer inspection and discovered that they were an amalgam of steel polygons…Eureka. Out the front … Continue reading "Polygonised Animal Statue Canopy Thingamajigs"

Plataturkeypus-up and emptiness

Things were going very Minnesotan this month, a cold and wet November, my bike froze up, see featured image (fake news??). ‘ Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery’ they say, so I’ll return he favour of Greg’s ‘Hastings Little Australia theme park’ and demonstrate how we’re going Minnesotan around here. I agree that Plataturkeypus-up is … Continue reading "Plataturkeypus-up and emptiness"

Equinox Challenge from the verandah

I live about 17kms east of the city and from my veranda I notice the position of the sunset on the horizon change constantly but sometimes the clouds don’t want to co-operate. Astronomy fascinates me, these two photos were taken two days apart and the city skyline creates a great reference point. Do you know … Continue reading "Equinox Challenge from the verandah"

Falling into line with some Aboriginal skeleton warriors

On the cycle to the Climate Strike Day from work I sprung into line with these guys.   Lots of protesters and students at the Rally, not happy the way we’re wrecking the planet and destroying their future. So where am I?     Don’t like crowds so I cycled back to work and stopped … Continue reading "Falling into line with some Aboriginal skeleton warriors"

February Challenge – results of weather

Well don’t expect any snow forts, icicles or snow drifts here…coz it’s hot, hot, hot and the middle of summer. It hasn’t even snowed here in winter since the last ice age. We’re too close to the equator, too close to sea level and the southern hemisphere doesn’t have the large land masses. I went … Continue reading "February Challenge – results of weather"

Cycle Life Challenge 3: Planes, trains and….camels and horses

Alas another gloomy day, about 25 celsius with some sunny breaks. I headed down the Zig Zag to see my friends at Kenwick who were involved in a horse dressage event. Kenny Wildhog is retiring with a golden handshake as his employer is rationalising its operations to Melbourne, a familiar story around WA at the … Continue reading "Cycle Life Challenge 3: Planes, trains and….camels and horses"
