How Today Went

Morning ...


tints ...

seeing summer out ...



ripening poroporo berries ...


shades of autumn ...


lunchtime breakers ...



dusk ...
gathering in ...


a pile of macrocarpa ...




all gone.

Sorry, I haven't been by for awhile. Beautiful pics. I have been writing. Time to smell the roses. We are seeing the spring come in. :-)

wow, your photos are amazing. Do you need a special lens for the close-up shots? The one of the gull getting flustered by the wind is wonderful.

Lovely pictures, Chief. The season changes are so splendid, you capture them well. I look forward to more.

I would like to try to take some shots of my yard this week--it is in its yearly splendor ushering in Spring this week. Of course, I don't have a digicam so I must wait for my 35 mm to come back!

Be well, Chief!

It's hard to imagine the transition but the change of season is coming. It's starting to get warm in the States after what feels like a long, hard winter.

Thanks for the pictures.

I think fall is my favorite season. A poem of photos...lovely CB!

What a beautiful sequence of photos. I have trouble getting nice fuzzy backgrounds in my close up details, but yours are perfect.

Today, a fellow volunteer where I'm working turned to me and said "Well, at least it's a dry heat." That's our mantra in the desert. Spring has almost passed us by and we've had 90-degree days already. Strange to think you're heading into autumn. I'm catching up on blog reading - so pleased to see photos along with your fine writing. Great seagull caught by the wind! And the colours of the fungus are wonderful!

Lovely, she writes, wanting to thank you ... trying desperately to forget the peek she just caught on her little laptop screen ... of a lollycake!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What charming photos, as always, CB. We finally have a little color hereabouts after half a year of monochromatic dullness (is there another kind?) Anyway, that lolly cake looks fab.

What wonderfully detailed images. The words are lovely too - 'poroporo berries' and 'macrocarpa'- both new to me.

cy - Hey you! Thanks for dropping by I know you've been writing - good for you too!

kd - I have a good camera gifted to me by Lil Sis - a Canon with a great scope - I just push the shutter it does the rest. (Altho for the gull pic i did a bit of Photoshop cropping to get that effect.)

mapi - Looking forward to tthose photos - I sometimes yearn for the pre-digicam days.

january - Yes it has sounded like a long hard winter too. We have a very temperate climate - which just means 'same old' often - altho four seasons in one day is a fitting description as well. bein an island in the middle of a big ocean swings the weather about.

tammy - Mine too!

catherine - Thank you! I just click! The camera does the rest.

pam - I am so pleased that you are back among us!! Your photos transport me to the desert which I love.

di _ I will send you one too if you like!!! :) Just say the word and give me the addy!

becky - 'monochromatic dullness' - what a scrumptious combination of words; what writerly images it conjures! Thank you ;)

rel - Thank you. Sometimes it's all there in our backyard.

watermaid - Glad to do a little cultural-sharing!

A belated comment, this: I was at Gore High School with Luke Hurley - I remember one assembly at which he got up and played the guitar, accompanied (if I recall correctly) by himself on tape. This was radical stuff for Gore High School in the mid-1970s - I was deeply impressed, and felt a new era was dawning! Even at that stage, Luke had a lot of commitment to and confidence in his work.
