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!
There’s just something about the soft whiteness of a magnolia bud. It oozes purity to me, although the perfect creamy whiteness doesn’t usually last more than a day once the bud opens up. This bud is from the Magnolia little gem in our front garden.
Nothing fancy, just a feather I found out in the paddock…
Another tree fern image tonight. I love the geometry and patterns in a fern frond. I think the black & white really emphasises it.
Finally, I have captured Ethy playing his guitar which I have been wanting to shoot for ages. Although the guitar is coloured an awesome blue, the photo really suits monochrome. I will post some detail images of the guitar tomorrow and show off its colour. My little musician in the making…
