Sometimes you can’t see the forest for the trees, or in this case the blue mist. I took this in June last year and didn’t even notice the mist at the time. Other than cropping I haven’t enhanced this picture.
From street photography to beach photography, a snapshot of summer on the beach at South-West Rocks, NSW. I think the little blond lad running towards the waves is having a great time.
You don’t need to be young, slender and have long hair to surf, only skill. Taken at Newcastle, NSW.
An Agapanthus flower taken at night.
Another picture tucked away from a few years ago. Yes it’s Marilyn Munroe on a poster holding a Chanel perfume bottle, I think. I performed another, make a picture B&W and bring out the coloured bits. This wasn’t a great picture to start with, I took it in the ball room of a Broken Hill hotel after talking to the host about the haunted room he put us in. (I’ll talk about that in my new blog) The room was huge and hadn’t been used in years. The pic is gritty and grainy, just the look I wanted for an old picture. I think Marilyn now adds a touch of class to the place.
A blast from the past, 22 years ago to be exact. Yes, it’s yours truly on his Honda Goldwing, ready to head off to work. That was the best part of the job, the ride there and back. 🙂
Reflection at Mt Cootha Botanical gardens. Reminds me of a Van Gogh, sort of.
Hands up if you think you have the worst job in the world, come on, you know who you are. Then look closely at the rear ends of both camels, and see what’s perched on their back legs. Yes, little birds whose livelihood is centered around picking flies off the bums of camels, and other large animals. I took a few pics and didn’t realise the birds were there until I put them on the computer. Top frame, bird on camel on right hand side, “Oi, Bert! Hop it, she’s gonna fart.”
Bottom frame, camel on left, “That’s right you little twit, ruin a girl’s fun why don’t ya!” This pic is best viewed in a new tab or window, just so you get the right effect.
That’s enough couth and culture from me this week. See, I can do a post without a Roo or Wallaby. It was hard though. Take care and I’ll see you all next week.
