We've been down the Southern Vales today and the colours were magnificent,
especially when we turned to drive into the "Battle of Bosworth Winery" gates
and discovered this delightful sight of trees and vines in autumn colour.
My cousins came too, one of them being a 101 year old. Firstly we stopped
at the "Old Bush Inn" in Willunga for a hearty lunch then decided to take
them onto the back roads to see how pretty the countryside looked at this
time of year.

"Portrait of a pet"
This young pup belongs to our granddaughter, it wasn't an easy shot to

It is Mother's Day here today in Australia, and a lovely surprise awaited
our return yesterday, organised by my sons in San Francisco was this

here so I hope it is an okay entry for this topic!
"An Unusual Perspective"
Included in the May Challenge, this photo was taken of a plaque on
the corner of the Town Hall in Burra, and the name belongs to
my great-great-grandfather who was an important man in this little

"Black and White"
My entry for this topic, friends we went on holiday with. We'had perfect
weather the whole 4 days... blue skies and temps around 20dC daily
Some of the photos taken will suit this Challenge quite well I think!
I always like to play around with a failed image, they don't always work
but are so much fun creating. This one began as mist over the distant hills.
We will be away for a few days and I will endeavour catching up later in the week.
Our glory vine is changing colour, and with the back lighting took my eye
