Sunset on the floor…

Sunset on the floor in spices a great Indian Resturaunt in Launceston

The setting sun produced a shadow gram on the blind that interested me. The grain of the wooden floor, the near vertical lines of the blinds, the chrome of the much copied Fritz Hansen chair, all came together in a quiet glance of angles and texture. The lady said are you one of these people that constantly looks at your phone? No I said there are qualities in the light shape and forms that interest me. As I look at the light this irrepressible force makes me concentrate on what is before me no matter how simplistic or mundane.  I have to record the composition with camera or much less often now a pencil and sketchbook.

Red tails in the sunset …


Olympus EM-5 ƒ6.7 1/400s ISO200 Olympus 75-300

Couldn’t resist this title for these wonderful creatures that wake me up at five in the morning and scream at me before before supper.  If I walk in the orchard at night these cockatoo’s let me know the don’t want me there.

Kings park a winter sunset …

Kings park a winter sunset

Kings park is really quite unique among the worlds cities to have a native bushland park that over looks the whole CBD. It is possible indeed quite easy to walk from the city centre and be in dense bushland within twenty minutes. Other parts of the park are in the classic English parkland style while other areas are flower beds and specimen plantings of rare and endangered WA natives.
