Haven’t really done much light-painting, though I did set-up a photography business at one point called LightPainters – but that’s another story. This tree was in a dark, pretty much deserted carpark on Saturday night. There were a few streetlights a few blocks away, but other than the stars, there was no other source ofContinue reading “Torch-Painted Tree”
It’s a funny sort of autumn, sunny and warm after such a cold, wet summer. We’ve had beautiful evenings, with soft, honey-coloured light on the gardens, playing tag with a light breeze and a pair of cabbage moths who fluttered out of the frame.
Went through over 600 images shot last night. To be honest, most were plain crap… I deleted over 300. Then I deleted another 100.

This is what comes of pondering the meaning of life whilst listening to Leonard Cohen. He is naked and he’s filthy and there’s sweat upon his brow. I can’t say the same for me. Shame that.
Sorry I’ve been AWOL the last week… funny thing when you commit to a 366 day project… Obviously I take it seriously, since I am in the second year now. This is actually the 457th photo since September 2010 – excluding reruns when I went on holiday and such. And every so often I justContinue reading “Twilight in the Garden of Eden”
I know it’s just me. Oh, and just you, too. But does this tree seem to be, well, you know??? I do believe this is a gum tree native to Australia
It’s not much of an ode, but I couldn’t quite muster anything akin to ‘wee, timrous mousie’ and wasn’t in the mood to fake it. I liked this seal. He was too proud to beg.
