April Theme Day: Cobblestones

There are no quaint cobblestone streets in the Clarence Valley. The closest approximation is the very rough stone walkways you find at the beach.

It is often easier to cast off your shoes and go barefoot.

On the 1st day of every month the City Daily Photo Community shoot to a common theme. A few weeks ago the server was hacked and the site is still down but thanks to Julie at Sydney Eye a linky will enable the community to have their monthly meet up in the blogosphere.

On the 3/4/12 CDP came back on line after 3 weeks down. Big thanks to Dionysus for getting back up after the hackers! Also thanks to all those others who kept us informed and also the community still functioning at the most basic level -theme day. The following link will take you there.

  1. Love the discarded sneaker, Mark. That would have put paid to the rest of the stone ramble for mine!

    It is interesting what work-arounds contributors are coming up with, and the spin that they use for the switcheroo. I love it. I think we are all learning to be politicians in the true Labor mould. Of course, Liberals do not indulge in spin.

  2. How on earth did that 'time' appear on my comment? It was actually 6:54am Sunday. That is a 17 hour difference, so Blogger/Google think I am in Pacific Time. Bastards!!

  5. Great captures Mark. I saw plenty of these "ankle-snappers" (as identified by Peter, above!) during my recent visit to the Sunshine Coast, but they are great fun to clamber over - albeit not so nimbly as in one's childhood! Thanks for sharing.

  10. Cobblestones seem to be hard to come by in lots of places. I was surprised to find the shot I had among my archives, before I found it I was going to resort to a photograph of my garden path, which is a lot easier to walk than the rocky path you have shown here.

  11. Interesting because here in Menton we have cobbles made of pebbles.

  12. A great twist on COBBLESTONES! What's better than a walk by the beach, feeling the stones with your feet!
