It’s written in the sand

Jude’s 2020 Photo Challenge #42: Octobers Theme/Technique – Seascapes

One of my favourite songs to listen to while you scroll

This week's assignment - look for patterns and / or textures along the seashore, this might be in the rocks or shells or seaweed. Try using different depths of field with the same subject then compare them to see which you prefer.

The Sand Images
With water

Made by Sand Crabs up close

Intricate patterns are made

The receding water patterns

The shells and pebbles water patterns

A small Jellyfish and seaweed with bonus bubbles

Windblown Pig-face, buried flower and a stick

Sand textures, dune grass and shadows

Footprints in the sand

I used to cling to rocks now I make an interesting patterns in the sand

The Rock Pool Images

Algae makes a bold colour statement

The folds and patterns of the rocks, the green of the seaweed and subtle sand shapes

The Shells

A close photo of a broken shell accentuated sand and shadow

A contrast and almost moving shell

Using light on the lighter side of the shell leading to a darker side where the shadow resides

Interest is raised by the lines and colours on the shell

The Rocks

Using black and white to accentuate the shadows and highlight the shapes

Looking at subtle colours and textures

Looking at bold colours and textures

Texture – looking at a Banksia

Judes 2020 Photo Challenge #11: Texture

Get in close to a Banksia spinulosa, commonly called a Hairpin Banksia and Bush Candles, seeing why the Banksia has that name. The inner green and the form to yellow with blueish purple tips. 190411_blog_challenge_flower_banksia_spinulosa2
Once you get to see the full flower the colour change is dramatic with the dominant colour becoming orange and a Bush Candle lights up the bush.190411_blog_challenge_flower_banksia_spinulosa1

Waiting for a boiled egg

The Ragtag Daily Prompt Tuesday: Butter
Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Textures

While waiting for the egg to boil and have already buttered the toast, my own homemade bread, the inspiration took hold. I grabbed my camera and here is my breakfast. That sounds so Instagram or Twitter doesn’t it!

Yes, yesterday was rather warm and I forgot to put the butter in the fridge

 
I have been searching for a glass butter dish for quite a while. Many of the antique dishes were either not quite right or hideously expensive. I was looking online and one came up in a retail outlet that looked like what I wanted. Yes I did buy it and it cost me $18! The butter dish was $9.75 and the postage $8.25. A bargain for exactly what I wanted don’t you think?  191023_blog_challenge_butter_breakfast_dish

Textures

The word prompt for Brens Photo for the Week: Textures

The texture of the rock shelf at Evans Head. This part is called Goanna Head. Perhaps the rocks look like the scales of a Goanna.
