For the weekly photograph challenge, I looked no further than to this photograph I took last Sunday. I was enjoying a beautiful walk in Mt Cootha Botanical Gardens, near Brisbane. It’s a Calliandra surinamensis, Pink Poodle and I loved the pink detail of the flowers.
Today was my triumph; a successful upgrade bid with Malaysian Airlines. So for the first time I spent just over seven hours in relative comfort. This image of smoked duck with grilled artichoke, red radish and tomato salsa has been enhanced with the ‘red’ button!
Today I nearly went cross-eyed looking for my double subject. I was prompted when packing for my imminent trip to Malaysia (tomorrow in fact) when looking at my past photographs of the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur and this is what I did.
Today, show us an edge — a straight line, a narrow ridge, a precipice. I’ve never used PicMonkey before and I had a go at straightening up a couple of images. Here are my edge & alignment shots.

Our family treasure George. Rescued from the care of the RSPCA he came to live with us for eight years.
I wanted to share a lovely image of a very good friend on her wedding day. It was a hazy Summer’s evening in the beautiful countryside of the Czech Republic (about one hour from Prague). Following the formalities of the day, it was time to let our hair down as we danced to a local folk […]
I wanted to revisit Day Fifteen: Landscape with a gallery of Australian landscape shots. In contrast to Creakingbones who used dramatic images of the arid outback, here you will see images of the Adelaide Hills and one of South Australia’s wine regions, McLaren Vale.
Today, let’s walk in the footsteps of masters like Ansel Adams and focus on landscape photography. Too many landscapes to choose from but I whittled it down to a landscape shot from Somerset in the UK, captured on a visit in 2011. I just cropped out a small slice of the sky. I love the […]
A great theme to have fun with which I shall do at the weekend – for the time being a few observation photos
