Bler,Brown



Tempted as I was to post an irrelevant discourse on poo, . My internet is behaving like shit and I'm in an ongoing shit fight  with my ISP so brown is kind of suitable right now. . . However, discretion being the better part of valour, I looked through my Flickr album and actually found some rather lovely brown things


Door at Monselvat Artist's retreat




Vicrtoria's  wide brown land



Brown rocks at Kiama




Bodacious brown dog



Very tame brown Kookaburra, no laughing matter. Please don't ask about the red nail polish




Delicious dipping brown




My kind of bay brown





Jenolan Cave Brown




Blowing on your soup, while ash lands in your hair brown





One for the gentlemen . . .


Theme Thursday again  and I've been a bad blogger ..see what other 's have done with possibly the worl'd dullest colour. Chocolate and coffee excepted.

And brown butterscotch, brown caramels, brown bark of trees, brown bottle, brown bodies,brown - the new black etc etc.

Terrific images here, Baino and none of them remind me of what goes into the toilet.

well sweetie if you've done bad, I've done worse since I also posted brown pics!!! sigh... I think your post was lovely and very appropriately brown. I'm afraid I'm not nearly as original and inspirational as this crew... lol

Greyscale Territory said...

A wonderful collection of browns! Some memories here for me e.g. Jenolan Caves and rocks at Kiama! Used to live in the south of Sydney at Camden for many years but now live in Victoria.

Roy said...

A nice collection of browns. And I should have known you'd find a chocolate fountain for this!

Candie Bracci said...

Really nice post Baino :)

Brian Miller said...

excellent shots baino...ove the nature ones...even below the earth...a chocolate fountain i not so bad either...smiles. had an electrical storm last night that blew everything out for a couple hours...but yours sounds a bit more of a headache...

Betsy said...

kookaburra sits in the old gum tree ♪♪♪ :)

lovely door in that first shot.

I'm partial to brown hair myself.

love the bench! haha

tony said...

You Know,Today,Brown Is Kinda Growing On Me!Happy T.T.!

AngelMay said...

OOOOO... I want to go to that artist's retreat. Not to paint or anything like that... but just to BE there.

Janice said...

What a lovely assortment of beautiful browns. I particularly liked your opening shot, that marvelous door. And here's to coffee and chocolate!

California Girl said...

I always thought a Kookaburra was a furry animal of sorts, kinda like a koala. It is an imposing looking bird, I must say.

Ropi said...

The cave is beautiful. We have similar to Aggtelek in Hungary.

otin said...

Well at least you did a brown post! I didn't! lol

Gabriela Abalo said...

great brown pictures!!!

Me said...

I've been visiting the TT players in order and saw hints of your "poop post" in a few places along the way. I was a little nervous to click on your link! :)

Haha...actually, that's the first place my mind went to when i saw the theme was brown. I live with my husband and two sons...I think they're rubbing off on me.

In seriousness, those are some great pics...the first one was my favourite. Happy TT!

... so that's the secret; red nails for unexpected landings, I'll have to give it a try. That door is very inviting*!*

Bimbimbie said...

hehe just spotted the chain for the hubby bench ;)

Tom said...

i couldn't get excited about brown until you mentioned coffee and chocolate...of course the brown haired lass is lovely too.

00dozo said...

Ha! Funny, I was going to recycle a 'poo' post of mine today, but thought that would be lame. I'm otherwise too hot these days to think of anything to post.

Love those pics, though. Are kookaburras generally cranky, yet can be known to be gentle around those who wear red nail polish?

;-)

nick said...

Great pics. Victoria is amazingly brown and parched. So even that recent spell of rain didn't restore the green?

laughingwolf said...

i've had beautiful brown babes in my life...

give you isp shit! GRRRRRRR

Robyn said...

Well done with the brown theme.

Sorry to read that the internet is giving you grief. That's frustrating!

I hope all is well with the new job as I think you have already started?

take care
xx

Kath Lockett said...

Of course you'll utterly unsurprised to know that I immediately went - CHOCOLATE! And Coffee! And more chocolate!

...plus I bought myself a beautiful pair of brown boots yesterday that I haven't the heart to put in the wardrobe just yet - I still smile just looking at them.

CHOCOLATE!

River said...

I LOVE the door at Monselvat Artist's retreat. I can easily imagine picture that being the door to my (imaginary) cellar in which I hide all manner of goodies from the prying eyes of my family. Like chocolate, also brown.
The Jenolan Caves are stunning. I'm going there one day.
The seat for bored husbands is a great idea.
Mmmm, brown eyes.........

RA said...

The monselvat door is mindblowing! And I don't even know why.... :)

joanny said...

too bad about the internet stuff, mine has been acting up as well , but the rest of the post is quite entertaining with some very good interest photo's Nice for brown TT.

The world's dullest colour has to be...

BORING BEIGE!

Your show jumping shot is very apt as today was the Aga Khan trophy event at the Dublin Horse Show...

The Dutch won, with Ireland and USA in joint second place.

Gledwood said...

I always thought kookaburras had big noses, never knew they were that enormous!!

That brown rocks under a blue-&-white sky picture is amazing!

Gledwood said...

The brown dog looks like a lopsy-eared Norfolk Terrier. They're exactly the same as the Norwich terrier I wanted (still want; can't have), only without the perky ears...

ps do you think the horse-rider is Princess Ann?
Nah, far too feminine for Princess Ann...(!)

Carolina said...

So... what's with the red nail polish? (And do I detect a slight hint of lipstick too?)

Love the brown horse. Had jumping lessons myself yesterday (with horse I might add). Talking of brown. Need clean underwear after every jump normally. Not yesterday though. Horse behaved very well. Still smiling because we had such a great lesson yesterday.

Anywho, love the bench for bored husbands. And the chain is hooked up to a truck, so if the bench is full with bored man they go for a mad drive around town? Or did someone chain an incredibly large dog to the bench? (No, I know, just my imagination doing fun stuff in my mind.) Great photos, all of them. Don't feel guilty about not blogging so much. You're not half as bad as I am sometimes ;-)

i beati said...

I can never find the theme find the web sometimes but not the theme- speaking of poo bye bad job

Betty said...

Not bad blogger at all. Great post. Love that seat for bored husbands.

I LOVE the sound of an artist's retreat. I'm hoping to take a week off to paint around Christmas. There aren't enough hours in the day for me to fit in painting, except for the occasional graffiti stencil.
