Food for the animals
This is two silos that hold grain for cattle. This livestock feed company has been here for as long as I can remember. I will post a close up of the top section tomorrow.
Local News - Young people in the Marsden area have a chance to try a range of new sports in a new series of activities at the Marsden High School oval each month, starting this Friday after school.

This is a new buddhist temple. Part of it would get constructed then there would be a long delay till the next part started. As one of these delays was between half the roof tiles getting put on, I can only presume they must have kept raising funds as it was constructed.
When I finally chose to photograph this temple, they had just put down these mounds of dirt.

Art at T.A.F.E.
The artwork is recent and I see from it a bridge to the tree of knowledge that will take you on your road to your future. What do you think?

Unwanted metal tree
This is a tree sculpture by Christopher Trotter titled "Brachychiton Rupestris" and represents various aspects of Logan City and its characters.
The residents near where this was put complained about it (it cost AU$30000 - 18159 Europe Euro) and so it was moved to the Logan City Art Gallery. I have never been inside. I will post a close up photo of the top tomorrow as it is interesting in its own right.

While I was out photographing, I got stopped at this train intersection. I thought I would have a go at a moving object photo and got the desired effect.
This is our local train and before I got a car it was my main means of transport. Takes 45 minutes to get from my local station into Brisbane Central Station.

Like a bridge over troubled waters
Thanks to everyone who posted a comment to my photos. One in particular caught my attention "Pictures in the rain are interesting too, it is part of the city!"
So even though I can't take the photos I want just yet, I grabbed my camera and headed down to a place I used to go as a child. There is a new bridge that goes over any flood water (off to the right) but years ago, we used to always get cut off as the roads flood and the majority of school kids couldn't get to Loganlea State High School.
So we would head down to the road on our bikes and stand in the flowing water to let the drivers know how high the water was. As you can see to the left that if the car gets pushed off it goes in the river. This is all a bikeway now but you can still see the double white lines disappear under the water and they have left part of the old road and then made paths at either end for bikes. So yes, Pictures in the rain are interesting too. Thank you.

Morning has broken
This one I think speaks for itself. This is an old photo and I waited about an hour in the dark then some more time in the light of morning before the sun peaked out of the clouds.
I'm off now to take a photo or two before it rains again. It has been overcast for about 5 days now and I am waiting for the sunshine to show off our usually brillant weather.

Waiting for the rain to end
The day after I decided to start this blog, it started raining continuously.
We have been in a drought for years and whatever rain we get would be quick and violent. Now the rain seems to be set in for a day or two more.
Until then I will start posting old photos that I have to get this going.
This photo is from a park in Browns Plains. I was trying out the zoom function of my camera and took a photo of the power line tower at the edge of this park.
