of what you see—
—this little guy was pretty well Black and White anyway, but in the spirit of the thing I fed him through the B & W filters (gave him a good scrub just to make sure).
Originally I tried the image flipped on to its side, which turned the squirrel (?) mouse (?) into a cat (?) … imagination aside, I liked the texture of that old driveway.
They have footpaths (pavements, sidewalks—thank heavens the English language is unambiguous and never confusing) in town that have a large proportion of crushed glass bottles in them, I’ll see if I can get a decent shot when the sun is sparkling …
… varying textures of sand at Orepuki Beach. For some reason this beach sometimes makes one think of Zen gardens. Occasionally the beach changes texture and colour; when it grows black (and almost oily-looking) patches is when the gold bugs come swarming with their quadbikes, shovels, and set up portable riffles in the creek …
… the same beach, further along, looking at the cliff face. Sculpted by wind and tide, sandstone with layers of mud. All good stuff in colour—memo to self: next time try this shot in hard sunlight.
AND THAT IS ALL
we have time for now. It’s very much a learning curve, and from this end great fun. Off to town later (Spouse has an appointment with the dentist at tooth-hurty). I’ll keep an eye open for more shots, I’m feeling challenged …
