Two of my favourite roses.
This morning I found a little skink in my sewing room…….on checking with the Museum of Victoria Field Guide site, this little lizard is a common Garden Skink of the Lampropholis species. It must have lost its way!
Gently caught and transported outside to my moss pot, it became the subject of practice with the 5D. I’m finding the numerous modes of auto focus a bit of a challenge, but managed to get some good shots. Some of these have been cropped a little, but all were taken with the 100mm macro lens. He was quite small, about 8-9 cms long. If you look carefully you can see my reflection in its eye!
Just a word about these galleries – you can click on any image and it enlarges, the whole then becomes a slide show. The gallery itself will show images in a different order each time it is opened.
I purchased this little number yesterday……..
A big splurge indeed, and now I have to learn how to use it to its full potential. Yes, that is Gaffer tape spoiling its beauty – purely a protective measure to prevent marks or bumps as I get used to its larger size and weight. Watch this space for some results!
Most of today was spent preparing three entries for a local photo exhibition that will be held in a couple of weeks, and the theme was “Our Town”. I unearthed this as one of the three, taken last year when we had a pair of black swans on the town lake. I used a slice of this image for a header some months back, so here it is in it’s entirety.
This week’s challenge is to show a photo which means up – it can be be a direction, an orientation, or even a movement. These were all taken on a recent trip to Singapore and Penang. The roof structure and the Supertrees are in the Gardens by the Bay in Singapore, and the Palm was outside the window of my hotel in Penang.
