Kate’s Friday Fun: Luxury
a seat on a train
countryside whizzing past
enjoy the sights
read a book
“Vorresti un giornale, signore”
snack on the food
from a trolley
coming down the aisle
Peut-être un vin madame
Lo siento no entiendo
so far away
First Class seats
The Ragtag Daily Prompt Tuesday: Courage
The Wedged-tailed Eagle has his lunch, a Water Dragon, and is being harassed by a Magpie. It takes courage to fly near a Magpie nest
A Square-tailed Kite soars above the forest much to the displeasure of a Noisy Friarbird. The shape to the left rear of the Kite is the Friarbird about to give the Kite a good kick.
The courage of much smaller birds defending their territory against large birds of prey takes courage don’t you think?
The Ragtag Daily Prompt Monday: Verdant
The May Photo a Day Challenge from Maria at CitySonnet: Silhouette
I have been doing silhouettes for quite some time now. These are my original photos converted to black and white and the outline of the birds redrawn by hand. The black enhanced and filled but not “flood filled” but each pixel or a group of pixels. The same process with the white part of my photograph.
I haven’t done any new ones for a while now as it is rather time consuming. I haven’t applied borders. When the photo is framed it doesn’t need a border but on the web page perhaps. I hope you enjoy my bird silhouettes.
This is the first one I attempted. A White-faced Heron who was sitting on a tree in my garden.
A Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoo flying at my place
The distinctive tail shape of a Spangled Drongo
Another easily identified bird by their tail – a Rainbow Bee Eater
A Golden Whistler singing in the tree
One of my best and most complicated, a Wattlebird on a Banksia flower at Evans Head
