It has been one of those weeks, I have a nasty chest infection and haven’t been out and about doing the whole happy snap routine. The safe alternative was to dig in amongst the copious folders of photos on the computer. Some old, some new coming from far and wide.
Instead of the usual sunset we have sunlight through the ice in a cloud. They make for great pics when you get a big one.
A cactus flower which I may have posted a couple of years ago but here it is again anyway. It’s beautiful enough for a second run don’t you think? To give some perspective, it’s about the size of an adult’s head.
I snapped this little bloke while bushwalking in 2004 up near Mt Barney. He’s a Rock Wallaby, he lives in little caves and under rock ledges. I came close to him and he sat there, obviously happy with his version of being camouflaged.
These were taken at Taronga Park Zoo, in Sydney about four years ago. the Gorilla at the top seems to have been to that barber in Seymour I wrote about in my Army posts. He’s jubilant about his stick, “No officer it’s only a twig. I wouldn’t dream of smoking it.” Bottom left: “I tell you Gladys it’s the same every night now, he goes out with the Gorillas, gets on the bananas then spends all day sleeping. No Gladys I didn’t fart, it was him. Ooooh, a fat louse.” Bottom right: “Are you sure Cheeta, really sure?” – “I’m positive Myrtle, Jane means nothing to me anymore, nothing.”
I took this in a back street situated in Kyoto, Japan on a stopover. I have this printed out on A4 paper and up on the wall. I can never get enough of looking at the tree.
We had a few people over last Saturday night and I brought some flowers in from the garden. When we were cleaning up he jumped out of the vase and onto the bottle. Green Tree frogs are rarely camera shy.
Adelaide, South Australia 2004. I’ve never met a pig I didn’t like.
The sounds of bleating sheep, whirring shears and the call for ‘Tar here Jack’ wouldn’t have been heard in these sheds for years. New England, New South Wales.
The neighbours popped over today and their lovely Blue Cattle dog bitch Kiki, came with them. She has a great smile, I didn’t have to say cheese, just burgers. I think she may be something of a Media Tart in the making.
I have to sneak the odd Roo in now and then: the wallaby on the far left isn’t interested, the next roo is wondering where the tip of his ear has gone, the next one looks a little apprehensive and big boy, well he’s chillin. Doing it with a touch of style by the look of it. (down from the house)
There we have it folks, the best I could this week. As always they look better when you open and view them in a new tab. I won’t rattle on today I’ll just let the pictures speak for themselves.
