A new look and reworked tagline for the blog…’cause that’s how I feel
“Everyday things can be magical too”
Still in pursuit of those everyday things… ones that are so often overlooked. Many times I miss the mark and sometimes I don’t even realise until later on that I’ve found the wow factor…but for me that’s what it’s all about and I really enjoy looking…and finding.
I’ve been going back through my images.. (it’s been raining…lots!).. ones I’ve taken over the past year or more.. and I came across this one. A favourite of mine.
I saw this butterfly in our backyard (beginning 2012)… I chased followed it around taking lots of photos
The dear fellow was very kind to me and I think he looked very tired but he was beautiful.. and I was so excited!!
Some of you might even remember me painting this guy too. His beautiful colours and rich velvety coat were magnificent.
Last Friday, as we were doing our trip around the city with our cameras, we came upon an unusual site. A woman was sitting in the gutter, visibly upset. She was well dressed, had an ID tag, so we assumed she worked. It was quite sad seeing her sitting there.
Of course, being photographers we took photos, from a distance, she had no idea we were doing it.
I was so moved by this image from Leanne Cole, I knew I wanted to pen some words to describe what I read and felt after reading Leanne's post.
"Crying in the Rain"
Completely alone in the midst of it all.
Folded in the gutter.
The world closes in.

Yesterday morning on the way back from my sojourn to ‘my’ cherry tree… I saw this roo sitting in the old orchard…
I must say… I was soooo not ready to take these shots… At the same time as deciding I should try and take some snaps, I was fumbling with the camera snapping and changing to auto…really quickly!!! Consequently they are very raw ( not processed or refined…especially, the ‘not refined’ part ) and not even necessarily in focus.
I definitely think it fits this week’s weekly challenge though.. so imagine they are much better
There was a silent dialogue that happened between the roo and me
The roo: You can’t see me.
Me: I can see you!
The roo: Aggghhhh! Run!
The roo: Escape!!!
There endeth my exciting tale
PS I should say the roo (kangaroo) and I live happily ever after!!
