Glasshouses at Dawn



I was there at the right time, but the combination of sunrise, mist and a not very deft hand on the processing button, give this view a vaguely "Chinese Sunrise" sort of quality.

Rust and Ruin




This photograph was taken in late May for several reasons.  The most important of those is that the wreck of the SS Dicky, which has featured here many times before and gave its name to the beach on which it rests, is being moved, and I wasn't sure that it would still be here for a current photograph.

My absence from the country at this time is also problematic, but not to worry.

I can't make up my mind whether moving a wreck, a few bits of rusted iron, to a park several hundred metres away is actually "preserving it" as the good intentioned folk who are responsible for the move believe, but that is what is happening.

A wreck is a wreck I would have thought, but the next photo I take of it will tell a different story.

Note to file.


It may be very cool to hang upside-down from the roof while creating your art, but the outcomes may be affected!

Not Sure


I suspect this is a pair of starfish errr..... being very close.   Do starfish get very close to one another?

Maybe it's a ten legged octopus with no body... yes that could be it.

Or maybe there's a very deep and meaningful thesis floating around on the artist's intent, I don't care, I like it.

Fun with plant names


This little guy is about thirty centimetres tall.  He's a casuarina of course, a small version of the she-oak, whose common name is "Cousin Itt", named after the character of similar appearance in the almost ancient television series "The Addams Family."

If you don't believe me, you can look it up!

Real Men


Real men need monster four wheel drives to get through hedges.
