Weekly Prompts Weekend Challenge: Glow

I know this is second go. I had this idea and I love the song but…..you know….tangents. Well I hope you give the song a listen. It’s one of The Small Faces best

Messages to inspire

Lens-Artists Challenge #234: Messages

There are messages everywhere.
Some you see,
some you don’t.
Some are big,
some are small.
Some to make you think,
some to make you smile.
Some are subtle,
some are on a wall.
There are messages everywhere.

Look

Let’s be positive

Something to ponder

The kids are in the back seat

Well played Grafton Council

Spelling helps (words in black added by my bestie and me)

More to think upon

Something we should all aspire to

A strong message

Messages can be found everywhere, if you look.

The Peewee and the tree

Franks C.P. #6: In-Camera Abstraction

I have enjoyed attempting some ICM (Intentional Camera Movement) which has been more lighting focused in the past.

Maybe this photo could be titled “Seagulls at the Waterfront” taken from a high rise overlooking Sydney Harbour

These are more like my usual nature photos with a twist, hence the title of this post. The Magpie Lark is also called a Peewee which suited my titling better than Magpie Lark and the Tree lol

Do you have any ICM to show Frank?

Time to rap at the birdbath

Hammad’s Weekend Sky #86

Last weekend the sky had a wonderful morning display. I just had to take those photos for Weekend Sky but didn’t post them. The morning sky also held a surprise as well.

21 January skies

It is hard to get the full effect of the sunrise with it’s blazing yellow sun

While to the north, the sun is just reaching the tops of the Eucalypts and our Moon was still shining bright. This photo is from the old little camera which is not being used for morning sky photos any more but still is the small pocket sized camera I will use for my emergency camera if out and about and my main cameras don’t function as I would like.

These are this mornings photos. I was awake about an hour after sunrise this morning. After wild storms over the past few days, the blue morning skies are back, heralding more hot days with afternoon storms.

The northern sky, the sun fully lighting the Eucalypts and a wisp of cloud

Here is the sky on the 26th at around 5pm just before the wild wind and rain arrived

and coloured tinged clouds at sunset

Delicate and small

Cee’s FOTD
Bren’s Floral Friday #84

I am having another indecisive day. I am playing spin the wheel and see what flower it lands on in the flower folder. Todays flower is a cactus – Mammillaria bocasana v. splendens flower. I was taking photos in a nursery of flowers I had never seen before or for a long while.

So in my current mood you get not one but two Mammillaria bocasana v. splendens flower photos.

The one I spun and picked.

and the next photo which was in macro mode. Yes I just had to play around
