When Ailsa from Where’s My Backpack nominated this week’s theme, I thought my digital shoe box would not suggest much in the way of Metal. I was pleasantly surprised to find an abundance of metallic gems from around the globe.
I have chosen a few snaps from one of my favourite seaside towns, Apollo Bay. Situated on the West Coast of Victoria, Australia, at the end of the Great Ocean Road, Apollo Bay is a relaxing place with a village atmosphere, a lovely old wharf and jetty and a small fishing fleet.

Love the cray pots. Imagine the stories they could tell if such a thing were possible.
Two great shots of metal Francesca! Those blues are so vivid!
Apollo Bay is a lovely spot. Nice photos!
Super shots!! I’m especially drawn to the bright blue beach houses. Wow. Don’t they get hot in the summer, though?
Hi Jann, No they are well insulated between the iron outer skin, and the inner walls. New buildings like this must have a five star energy rating to get building permits from local councils. I just love the fact that corrugated iron, which was mostly used in the past for rooves, tanks and sheds, is now used in this way.
