This photo challenge from Nancy Merrill is Look Up
Last night I went out on dusk to make sure the chook was locked up and content. I looked up
In the distance this is what I saw
Not quite a full Moon. The clouds and colours were amazing.
A bit closer and isn’t wonderful?
Peeking out from behind the tree.
I love our Moon
Don’t forget to look up whether you are inside or out.
Odd Balls? They are the photos that are taken and sometimes you wonder why. Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge allows you an outlet for those photos.
Is this an Odd Ball to you?

A photo challenge from Lost in Translation: Once Over
I like this photo challenge as I quite often am not satisfied with a photo I have taken and want to try and capture the feeling or mood when I was attempting to get what I wanted.
Here is the original – the closest of many photos to what I hoped to achieve.
What I wanted but just couldn’t adjust my camera to the right settings to achieve was a dark background in order to fringe highlight the small hairs on the begonia leaves and stems. Once I had manipulated the image to what I desired, I then removed some of the elements that I didn’t want in the photo with cropping and cloning.
This is my final result.
The Daily Post word prompt: Variations on a theme
The Daily Post word prompt: Silhouette
I really enjoy turning my photos of birds into silhouettes. It is a bit of a process as I actually draw around the outline of the bird. I don’t use flood colour, I fill in the bird with black and then do the rest of the photos black pieces, branches etc by hand. The white is done the same way. I have posted some of these previously.
As you can see I don’t use borders. When they are framed, the mask provides an edge.
