Wednesday Kangaroos, a little arty.

For those who are feeling despondent due to the lack of roos here are a few shots from yesterday morning. I felt they were a little hazy so what do you do? You make art.
We have a touch of antique here.kangaroo

What a pair of poseurs.kangaroos

Two different mobs about a hundred metres apart.kangaroos

As always they look better opened in a new tab or window. I hope they help calm the need for Roos.
Cheers

        It’s okay Russel, all that blog camping does it. 🙂 It’s 8.36pm here and I’m way behind again this week. I spent the weekend doing the artwork for my book, then down to the printers on Monday getting a part fixed on the car today, dental surgery tomorrow. I might catch up by the weekend. 😦

      You’re welcome babsje, it’s great believe me. We went out to bring the washing in yesterday and four wallabies were sitting about 20 feet from the back door. They just sat and watched while we brought it in.

    I crept out from amongst the cartons filled with our belongings to sit on the veranda and enjoy the activity going on in your yard. It did not disappoint. The Roos are looking fit as a fiddle and ready for mischief. However I must get back and finish unpacking and putting our belongings away. I will be seeing the Munchkin and the Dumpling tomorrow, Oh, yes and their parents will be there also. Don’t give my spot away Fratello as I look forward to more visits. :o)

      Hi Sorella, I’m so happy that my pictures bring you so much pleasure. There’s always room on the veranda for you and yours. Don’t overdo it with the unpacking now. We wouldn’t want you to miss anything. 🙂
      Cheers

    Not only the need for roos, but the need to hear from you! I’m always hesitant to use the sepia tones, but they woirked very well on the roos. I pray all is well, my friend. Hugs and cheers, N:)

      Why thank you Natalie, it’s always good to see your smile too. I like to experiment with pictures, especially the tones. All’s good here.
      Hugs and cheers.

      Over here it’s always been a Mob of Kangaroos. So I looked it up on Google and found two different points of view. Mob and Troop. I think Troop might be from when Australia was first settled. Mob is definitely the term here. Irrespective of the name it’s still roo steaks eh mate?

        You’re probably right there Mate America does have its way. I think mob sounds better though. It’s also a mob of cattle as well out here. Aborigines refer to their tribe or family as our mob. A catchy word indeed.

        Great stuff, especially the commentaries of the first post. Seems, one really should be extremely careful having roos around …

        Thanks for guiding me towards those beautiful postings of yours.

        Have a nice time and sending a lot of greetings out of my rocking chair below a star-spangled German night sky,

        Thanks for that Salva. I get a little carried away at times but it makes for a fun read. They saved me explaining how cute and savage they can be. I’m having a good day, I’m going to sit on the veranda, I have the camera on a tripod and I’m going to snap a few Wallabies down the paddock. Enjoy your evening and starwatching.
        Cheers

      They’re on strike Raani, some rubbish about more pay and a sexual harassment suite brought by Marilyn against Wal Wallaby. However the crew from RooPoo turned up last night and left a years supply of product on the front lawn. 😦

    Nice selection of roos artfully done; and I wouldn’t have known there were two different mobs if you hadn’t pointed it out. Did you enhance the colors on Who’s the man? They seemed especially vibrant.

      Thanks Joy. The difference is there is a fresh tree stump in one and not the other. Who’s the man is pretty much how I shot him, the drawing program brought the colour up a tad.
