Paula has supplied some good words this month for Pick a Word
I hope I can do her words justice with my photos this month. I do so love this photo challenge. I have done a bit of cheating using one of Kimskys drawings but I did take the photo for her portfolio.
Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Glass
When I first saw this challenge, I wondered what glass should I have that would do well in black and white. After a while I discarded my original ideas when I found these photos.

Some of the hundreds of glass spheres as part of lighting in the lobby of the Grand Hyatt in Seoul.

The word prompt from Nancy: Street Lights
I went on a search of my folders for some lovely Australian street lights when I came across a few I photographed in London a couple of years ago. These became an obsession so I have ended up just having some street lights of London.
This is my minimalist view of the topic, by not making the topic the focus of the photo.
Trafalgar Square at night
A bit of the old London with the new.
I really like these lights.
Not strictly a street light but I haven’t seen many lights with a crown and a guard before.
Debbies Photo Challenge: Let’s Remove All Traces of Reality
Is reality a mirage?
I love sunsets and sunrises, the colours and sense of time they invoke.
Lots of great photos at Cee’s. Drop in and have a look at Sunset and Sunrises
The variety of colours in the setting sun
The clouds have many shapes and colours
Yellows are golden sunsets
Feel the heat of the setting sun
Once darkness descends, some people come out to play
Special flowers find the moonlight is their time to shine
Our Moon lights the way
The eastern sky comes alive as the sun pushes it’s way into the morning sky. A golden glow
Or a fiery orange to herald a new day, a new life
It’s that time of the week again where I try to find something with a bit of a wow factor. Last Saturday was my daughters wedding and I too my little camera so I wouldn’t have to carry a bigger camera. It takes good photos and sometimes I am amazed at results.
The wedding was in a field with a music and light show to dance the night away.
In the dark of night
A street light casts a glow.
From the shadows,
A figure emerges.
Belonging to the earth
From the shadows
The Daily Post word prompt: Black
For this Mundane Monday Challenge #135 I found this photo in my phone gallery. What interesting photos are in this weeks Mundane Monday?
I haven’t changed the original photo. Sometimes phones can take good photos.
I have so many things I have found and want to share that to have in one blog would have been too much for anyone to wade through. I guess it is Spring that brings so many things to life and into my camera lens. I hope you can stand a rush of blogs with a bit of my world.
The first part is the miscellaneous stuff, a bit of this, a bit of that with some nature thrown in.
We went on an expedition to South-East Queensland. In the town of Esk we found a timber mill. I wonder how long the shed has been there?
In the Newrybar Produce store, high in the roof, it looks like no one has used a cobweb broom since the shed was built. They draw straws to see who changes the light bulb I reckon.
The outdoor table has just the right amount of rust.
The shelf has some interesting bits and pieces hasn’t it?
It may be Spring but the trees are dropping leaves. Eucalypts drop leaves when it gets hot to conserve energy. Here are a few leaves with such wonderful colours.
A bit of rain and some warm weather has teased a couple of wood fungi out.
The rain has also bought the mosses to life. This little mound of moss appeared in the middle of a track.
There was a small hollow where a branch had fallen from a tree. I couldn’t see into the hollow to see if anything was in there, so I held my camera up and look what I found. A little world within a world. I was hoping for an insect but it looks like no one was home.
The ferns are coming up all over the place.
That’s it for Part One………..are you ready for Part Two?
