The world through my eyes

March 25, 2009 at 2:00 am 6 comments

It’s been awhile since I’ve brought you some of my photos – so today’s post is partly to sidetrack me from my last disturbing post on HR 645. I’ve been concentrating in recent weeks on colour, the play of light and shapes. Enjoy!

A very voluptuous magnolia petal with a dark, brooding background.

Frangipani: the petals are a beautiful soft pink dusted with orange/lemon threads intertwined with the pink petals. I wanted to get a lot of black in this shot to highlight the burst of colour.

An explosion of riotous colour.

A beetle, purple and sepia tones with emphasis on vertical lines.

And finally, a photo to cheer anybody up – Max, the Wonder Collie, showing us his happiest of smiles.

    thx Liz. Max is the happiest dog – always a smile on his face no matter what. He could single-handedly get the world through the global financial crisis 🙂

    If we got Max and my dog Coco … and my neighbours’ dogs John Joe and Ella … then the world would just be bowled over by their zen enthusiasm.

    Just off to take Coco for a walk by the canal here in Ballinamore … lifes simple pleasures … and it puts a smile on both our faces.

    ah but wait Liz: there’s more. Go here:

    see the bottom photo – that is Max’s brother, Tyler, top dog with a seriously haughty and quirky attitude. So it would be Max, Tyler, Coco (love your shots of Coco as a wee pup) John Joe & Ella – and the global crisis would not have a chance against all this positive canine energy!!!

    What a team!

    Love your photos on the other post – your have a fabulous eye for colour and perspective.

    Maybe there’s an opportunity for cash earned through photography linked to a series of your writings … should you ever decide to do a kind of ‘Australian woman explores other cultures’ kind of stuff.

    Really liked the tents and the curving wood photos.

    And … what’s wrong with dogs talking to their owners thru Flickr? Sounds perfectly normal to me.

    I’m a fan of frangipani!
    unfortunately these beautiful and well scented flowers do not last long ….in my hair!
