I think this is a Queensland Box tree which unusually has been left intact. Generally in this part of the world if a tree grows its fair game to be hacked and butchered into something that does not resemble a naturally grown tree at all. This tree provides deep shade for the front of the house and garden which is something Western Australian natives often fail to do. It always seems that where trees that provide good shade are needed the WA natives are planted and along roads where there is no parking there always seem to be good shade trees. A deceased good friend of mine was  keen observer of such conundrums, Harry called it Sods law and in such cases a sod it is!

Gum and drum, a street tree…

Gum and drum, an industrial street tree

The difference between old industrial areas and new industrial estates is trees. I don’t think for one minute this darling range gum tree was planted by a human being how it got there would be pure conjecture. But I am glad that it is as this area of Midland is particularly devoid of natural life. I am guessing but I have a feeling that in the near future trees will have to be planted as a condition of development in an attempt to offset carbon footprint of the buildings.  If that happens baron areas like this can only improve…

This is the first time I have been into town with the Sigma and the auto focus is surprizingly fast this being the case I am beginning to think that this DP2 might be quite good for photo walks at least in daylight hours. Who would have thought that there would be a point and shoot camera with almost medium format quality. The hot shoe viewfinder arrived the other day and I have to say its I’m quite impressed its a really good quality plastic with very bright optics. There are horizontal bright lines to indicate parallax issues when closer than 28cm. The DP2 lends its self to being used with an optical VF because of the implementation of centre focus and exposure lock when the shutter button is half depressed  (like a Leica M9). Because the auto focus is quick this system works very well. I don’t think this is a camera for newcomers to photography but it is a breath of fresh air from the function bloated DSLR’s.
