I believe this is called a Bat Plant, don’t get excited I didn’t grow it, no it’s a case of me going into other people’s gardens again.
A Pacific Black Duck that looks like he needs to diet, or perhaps he’s fluffing up about having his picture taken.
A piece of fossilised sea bed, about 250 million years old, in the Flinders Ranges national park, South Australia.
A little slice of paradise, with the peace and quiet of a shared task at hand. Ballina, NSW.
Fluoro daisies. The wind was blowing so I used my reflector on the black side to block it, and ended up getting a nice reflection and highlighting the centres.
A serene landscape can’t hide the fact that death has come and a living thing is dying. Yes the fig tree is slowly choking it’s host to death. An early winter morning last year a few kilometres from where we live.
The Corellas were in their hundreds flying around at Lake Apex, this fellow caught my eye though.
This Frangipani tree begged to be photographed, well almost. I put the reflector up silver side around and caught some lovely, light tinges to the petals.
This steam locomotive in Parkes, NSW looked a tad horrible painted green, so I thought a little transformation to be in order.
I call this one, Distance. Both my distance from them and the way the three of them are standing. I converted it to greyscale then went heavy on the contrast, and finished it off with a touch of dark grain.
I had to put one in. Quite a nice portrait here I think. I took this in the early evening obviously at dinner time.
That’s your lot for this week, I hope you enjoy and I look forward to seeing you all next week. Remember the pictures look much better opened in a new tab or window.
