Come on my road

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #240: The Road (most often) Taken

John wrote “This week’s theme is metaphoric–and not about a physical road. For this week’s challenge, I want you to think of your favorite type or style of photography as the road you’ve chosen to take most often. For me, it’s landscape photography as it fits so well with my traveling soul. My examples are all landscapes, but I want to see in what style you like to photograph best.”

Where do I take this prompt without being over the top. I have been thinking about what to post and why, which I do find hard and this is why it has taken me a while to think about my photos and my road.

I am leaving this lot in a bunch so you don’t have to scroll forever 😂

Left to right, top to bottom.

Row 1 – My road to get home especially after going to the Raspberry Lookout & photographing Paper Daisies

Row 2 – Flowers one of my favourite things to photograph as well the birds around my place The little Yellow Robin is a lot of peoples favourite as well as the colourful parrots like this Eastern Rosella

Row 3 – More birds, Blue-faced Honeyeater and Rainbow Lorikeet who enjoy snacking on Bottlebrush flowers and Rainbow Bee Eaters looking splendid on the branches of a dead tree

Row 4 – Of course there has to be insects and a bit of macro. A Scarlet Jezebel Butterfly in a Honey Gem Grevillea, a Native bee my favourite name, Teddy Bear Bee and a Native Stingless Bee flying into a Day Lily

Row 5 – More Macro A close up of a Scarlet Jezebel Butterfly, Tree Fern frond about to uncurl and another favourite to try to get, water drops.

Some new things I have been doing over the past couple of years which is a lot of fun.

Of course my water abstracts I create for Jez’s Water Water Everywhere

There is always a face to find for Monday Portrait. Cattle seem to be a lot of peoples favourites

Dipping in and out of Monochrome

Creating for Silent Sunday where I have been using photos of churches or religious items

  1. A lot of favourites for you here Brian, and for me too. And although I love your cattle portraits(!) I think if I have to pick a favourite, i always look forward to your photos of birds, especially as to British eyes they seem so exotic.

  2. All of these are genres I’ve come to expect and enjoy on your blog, but if I have to pick just one, it’s your bird photos I love the most. Partly because many of the species are new and exotic to my UK eyes, but also because you compose them so well 🙂 I love bee-eaters in particular so great to see some featuring here, and as you say the yellow robin is always a hit!

  3. I admit, I was wondering what took so long for you to join in. LOL. It was worth the wait. Your gallery is colorful and reflective of your personality (as I know it anyway) The birds, curious. The water, always fascinating art, The road, fun. The flowers, detailed. Water drop, cool. Always fun to visit you. And one day we WILL on that rollercoaster looking road.

  4. So many great photos! You make me excited to try new things. My favorites are the photo of the Paper Daisies, the sweet baby cow, and that monochrome of the chairs (I mean, wow!) Thanks for sharing your talented work.
