The glass walls of the pool produce the optical illusion that there are two performing seals earning their keep here at Taronga Zoo in Sydney.
Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Blue
Posted on February 6, 2019
Cee’s theme for her Fun ‘Foto’ Challenge this week is ‘orange and pink’. Funny, I could have sworn that when it was first listed it was orange and blue. Or maybe I’m getting too old for this malarkey.
Anyway, I don’t have any images of orange and pink together (why on earth would I?), so here’s an orange and blue I made earlier. A performing seal at Taronga Zoo in Sydney.

This image of a ladder with its strong shadow is a good subject for monochrome treatment. Photograph taken at Taronga Zoo, Sydney.

Having a sometimes overly literal frame of mind, finding an image to fit this week’s topic of ‘cherry on top’ presented some intial difficulties: i.e nothing in my collection with cherries on.
However, there is this photograph (which I admit to posting before, as part of Cee’s Compose Yourself Photo Challenge) of a performing seal at Taronga Zoo in Sydney that comes reasonably close to the mark.

We’re having what the French call a pause pour reflexion in Cee’s Compose Yourself Photo Challenge this time around. A time to think about the ground we’ve covered already and also an opportunity to show some images that didn’t quite make the cut for posting under the various topics that we’ve dealt with in the past months. Here’s a selection of mine:
Now, what is this a picture of? Is it the building on the right (the apartment block in Abu Dhabi where we lived for ten years)? Or is it the glass-plated building on the left? Or perhaps it’s the reflection of the former in the latter?
I used an image of two giraffes in my first posting on the topic of diagonal lines, but I could equally have used this profile of a horse – one of many in the fields around here.
Now two images that cover more than one aspect of the various topics we’ve looked at so far:
Leading Lines & Analogous Colours
A hillside vineyard near the village of Ay, in the Champagne region shows blue and green together, as well as leading lines
Geometry and Contrasting Colours
Orange and blue dominate this image of a seal at Taronga Zoo in Sydney. Obviously the balanced ball is one geometric shape but the curve of the seal’s body is like an arc of a circle.
