This week's assignment - Shoot your subject from below. Looking up will give the illusion of smallness (the viewer). An upwards angle will make the subject seem much more important.
Thank you brave soul who has ventured into bushboys world. I found this HARMLESS Huntsman Spider in the wood pile. They don’t have webs and rely on their lightning speed to catch their prey. Huntsman Spiders can run at sixteen of their body lengths a second and that’s the slowest one of the 95 Huntsman species found in Australia.
A song to listen while reading. It is the early song from my early life
Awaken my love the sun has tried to break through. The distance shrouded trees appear await bird song. I am the mist ready to envelop your senses. Awaken my love love has broken through. The mist has risen my body awaits gentle touch. Awaken my love ’tis early.
I shall add my bit from Australia for Su as she said “As it’s te wiki o te reo Māori (Māori language week) in Aotearoa New Zealand, I’m challenging myself to improve my te reo (language) skills wherever I can.”
Kia ora “Whatever we call it though, there is ti in the pot; te mīhini kawhe (the coffee machine) is at the ready and although the kai (food) is simple, there’s plenty to fill your puku (stomach).”
Here is my contribution – I have used te mīhini kawhe and made a cup and also have mongamonga keke
So haere mai ki te hono atu ki a Su me etahi atu. Nau mai te katoa. So come along and join Su and everyone else. Everyone is welcome
Culture makes people understand each other better. And if they understand each other better in their soul, it is easier to overcome the economic and political barriers. But first they have to understand that their neighbour is, in the end, just like them, with the same problems, the same questions.” – Paulo Coelho
