Day 138. A happy shot, off the side of a commissioned project I’m working on. Not at all suitable for that commission, but very suitable for my tastes I think!
Day 136. Toby is here to remind you that sometimes, life is better if you look at it upside down. He puts this into practice frequently.
Day 135. Now, who is looking at whom here? I thought for a long time (well, that 5 minutes felt really long…) about whether this had in fact succeeded as an image, or more specifically, the image I wanted it to be. I’m still not sure, but I’m hoping you can help with that. It’s all about the bird, you see, and I’m just not sure that he really stands out enough, or that you will even be able to spot him. Hard to judge that objectively, of course, because I know where he is hiding!
I followed this little bird as he hopped from one staging post to another. It was at this point that he just stopped and looked down at me… I like to think the expression on his face was something like, “Yes, can I help you there?”, but that’s just personification really.
Day 134. Say hello to Melbourne… because this photo is perhaps a little piece of Melbourne saying hello to you! Or, cheese. Or something… (Good lens-holding technique from the girl in the shot, too! Not so sure about the lens hood technique from her friend though…)
Day 133. Just a simple shot today, to remind me to appreciate the simple things, like living in a place where the sky lights up with colours like a canvas, full of textures, contrasts, details. It does this so often, it almost seems normal, and from where I live (the side of a hill), the sky is just so damn big, I think I can see forever. I probably can.
Day 132. In all of the looking up, sometimes I forget to look down. I have to. It reminds me of gravity, and the grace needed to overcome it. And the simplicity of three simple things; a forgotten flower, a curly twig, and the edge of a tile. There is peace here; there is comfort here; there is quiet.
Day 131. A stitch in time…
When I see this shot, I think of a line of stitches, joining land and water, binding them. There is work going on here; old, silent, knowing.
Day 129. Quite clearly, this is another interpretation of that classic location that I previously featured on Day 118. I must say, I prefer the feel of that earlier shot – but really, I’m interested to hear your thoughts… which do you prefer, and why? (Oh, and this is another nice opportunity to keep going with the whole ‘seascape’ thing that I’ve been on for a few days now… tomorrow will be something else, I promise!!)
