When I look at the images I have taken over the past few weeks there seem to be a lot of birds?! Get ready for a few bird posts. Everybody likes birds right?
Do you see the defiance in those beady eyes?!! That one in the front was clearly the mastermind. I’m convinced the feather display behind was to psych me into dropping my camera and running away therefore leaving them to eat the lens . You can’t out psych me goose. Although your beady eyes still haunt me.
These were a few more shots from my time at Broken Cliffs. I love the ‘lightness’ in the last image.
Scenes from my everyday life.
I am lucky as a SAHM (Stay At Home Mum) that I have the flexibility to take my kids on adventures or mini holidays in different places. I get bored just staying at home (I am about as far from a domestic goddess that you could possibly get) so I tend to find excursions to go on and my husband is the same so we often go of ‘adventuring’ on weekends. While we were out working on our echoes bouncing off the cliff on the other side of the river a man who was out for his exercise in a canoe came into view. After I nearly jumped up and down like a little kid with excitement at the possibility of taking his photo I composed myself and the image and took a few shots. The river was flowing so fast I found it hard to keep up. I don’t think he was expecting the paparazzi on the riverbank!
The final lot of photos from my recent photo taking expedition. I love the gentle glow of the ochre cliff in the background. The light was lovely. I don’t have much to say except that I am really enjoying finding and photographing things. I can’t think of anything not worth photographing. That would be an interesting challege actually. Being given something to photograph and trying to come up with an interesting image. I am not sure how it would work though. If no one had any suggestions I might have a month of no photos, haha. Oh dear, that would not do.
That’s it! I think I am up to date in posting the photos from Waikerie. I hope you enjoyed some of them.
I went to the zoo with my boys this week. It was cold and windy. Most of the animals were asleep or sheltering from the weather. These are the meager results of those that were accessible without a zoom.
Fortunately I have become a member this year so I will be visiting regularly. Surely on at least one trip they will be awake/looking at me/visible??
This is Wang Wang (the a is an “uh” sound not a hard “a”). He lives in his own enclosure at the Adelaide Zoo. His ‘partner’ Funi occupies the opposite enclosure. I don’t know enough about Pandas, but I guess they only get together on “special occasions”.
My favourite photo from the zoo. This guy struck a pose and held it while I put an iphone in his face and waited for it to focus and take the shot. Thanks Pelican you made my day.
This is a different pelican, but I liked the jetty.
I don’t even know what this bird is, but I can feel him rolling his eyes at me. He was very obliging though, stood still. I was so close and he didn’t flinch. I love his eyes. So dramatic.
I couldn’t get close to the monkeys, but I had to include a monkey photo because they were the only things moving at the zoo! That and I love their little faces.
Here are the photos from our weekend trip to Manum on the River Murray. I had a great day! My family had a great day too. My family think it is pretty funny when I have to stop the car to take a photo of something random like a building or reeds. E says to me “Mum! Stop taking photos!!” I reply, “Mum can’t stop taking photos, she sees so many interesting things, lines, shapes, colours, she has to capture it!” He looks at me blankly and runs off to play. Hopefully he will like looking back on our family adventures when he is older.
All of my photos pretty much are taken on my iPhone, mainly because it’s always with me and anything I see that I think is interesting in some way gets photographed. Sometimes they work, others definitely not. Sometimes I get frustrated because I can’t capture what I want and it’s a bit limiting with no zoom. Anyway here’s a few of the photos I took in the last few days that I liked for whatever reason. (sometimes I have no idea why I even like a particular shot!)
