I shot this succulent in Mum’s garden. As you know, I love shooting anything textural and this has structure as well which is even better! I love the furry texture of these fronds. I think the colour pattern is accentuated by the black & white. Only two more to go, I’d better look for something special in the next two days!
Another rainy summer evening! I went for a walk out in the garden and found this web, and although the shot is far from technically great, I still like it.
This is another thing I have told myself all year I need to shoot. So finally, with ten days to spare, I stopped the car, got out and took some time to grab a few frames. I do wish I could have got closer for some detail shots of this derelict old cottage, but this was as close as I could get. I think it suits the black & white.
A different view of another hay rake. That is all.
The boys both had a great day at Jett’s birthday party on the weekend. I caught Ethan giving this cheeky look to Grandma, I’m pretty sure she was telling him to keep his hands close while Mr Crunch, the grumpy baby crocodile, was out of his box. I can only imagine what was going through that crazy 6 year old mind of his at that moment!
The rain has finally stopped and our backyard is waterlogged! Ethan was in amongst the puddles & mud this afternoon, I love shooting reflections!
Our little girl Juno was not happy to be on the other side of the gate this afternoon when I was out the front shooting. Her eyes say a thousand words…
My boys are growing up in a totally different world to what I did, and I can only imagine what their grandparents must think! Technology is out of control, yet we don’t want to live without it and sometimes I think my 7 year old knows more than I do!! This is my modern day portrait of my boy, by the light of his iPod.
Another tree fern image tonight. I love the geometry and patterns in a fern frond. I think the black & white really emphasises it.
