I am hopeless at taking photos with my iPhone. I’m one of those Luddites who prefers to use my phone as only that, so make no apology for the quality of my entry to this week’s (actually, last week’s) photo challenge, which required us to do some phoneography.
I live in the ‘burbs, and a cacophony of cultivation culling machines pretty much characterizes my neighbourhood on a Saturday morning.
your phone pic shows us the nature of the neighbourhood … all those neat straight lines to be maintained!
Yes, and I love the way Nature just continues to subvert all that suburban banality by stepping over those neat straight lines 😀 Thanks, Christine.
Some of the new phones have as good as quality as Point-n-Shoot Cameras…think they’re getting better all the time.
I see that from the excellent photos that other Bloggers take with their phones, Charles. I need to read the manual 😉
What a pretty street. Is that a frangapani I see next to a rosemary plant in your garden? 😀
Yes 😀 I planted the rosemary so the postie would be greeted with a nice bouquet while depositing our post. And friends planted the frangipani. They stayed in our home during our two-year relocation to Perth and offered to plant a tree of our choice (which was frangipani). They planted it from a small cutting from a relative’s tree. I think it’s happy in its spot.
They both look like they’re thriving! 😀
Oh hello there – I was just over at your place and it’s looking rather wonderful 🙂
Thanks for dropping by – I’m so glad you like it! 😉
A cacophony of cultivation culling – brilliant Beeblu!
It’s pretty noisy around here on the weekends, Gilly, haha. Thanks 🙂
What a lovely sneak peak at your street. 😀
Masterchef Man was going berserk with the weedeater outside the dining room window – it reminded me a bit of the rather sinister ground-level opening shot from a movie I saw a few years ago – I can’t remember what it was called and it’s driving me crazy – where a vintage manual lawnmower was being manically hauled back and forth across a graveyard lawn. Suburbia, and the things that lie beneath, and all that…haha
Suburbian habits are the same all over, BB.
Do the garden at the weekend!
That they are, John. Thanks for popping in. Hope you have recovered well from your surgery. 🙂
Lawnmowers on a Saturday – in most suburbs worldwide. Only diff is the open-ness of the homes – ie no high walls and security signs, barbed wire, etc. I wonder if we’ll ever get back to ‘normal’ in SA?
Yes, the openness and freedom is the thing that I most love about Australia, Adee. I hope SA will find a way.
It’s still a good photo bb 🙂 a window into your street – even in the country you here the sound of mowers and whipper snippers in amongst the mooing 😉 Rosemary is one of my favourite herbs and plants.
Thanks, Gabe. Moooing?! 😯 Remind me to pack earplugs if I come to visit 😉
actually they are surprisingly quiet – it’s the dam rooster that will kill you – you are just like my sound sensitive sister – she says she won’t stay if the rooster is there – hahaha – maybe Edgar Allen Poe the rooster will have to go down the back paddock!
Rooster over sinister bovine, any day 🙂
What a colorful shot there…I love the greens.
Thanks, John – good to see you here 🙂
ah… I hear the heavenly sounds of menacing mobile munching mowers, bb…(trying hard to top cacophony of cultivating culling machines. 😉 ) xx
Menacing mobile munching mowers tops it, Pen – fantastic! Haha 😀
WhatdidIwin?… Awww… not a menacing, mobile, munching mower bb? 😉 I don’t have any grass…xx
Nice to see a bit of your neighborhood, Bluebee.
We are fortunate to have very good neighbours, Monica 🙂
I still have to do this one. I love your shot! 🙂
Thanks, Elizabeth 🙂
