November 7, 2013 … blooming in the greyness

Grey drizzle was the them of the day yesterday.

Seaview tank farm

Grim industrial landscape to match the weather

I went out in search of inspiration, but was disappointed with my catch.  Down by the water nothing much was happening. The tank farm at Seaview looked bleak and I wondered if something could be made of it. I gave it a try anyway.

Cordyline (1)

On Harcourt Werry Drive near the Hutt River I spotted some Cordylines in spectacular blossom.

Cordyline (2)


I am not enough of a botanist to identify the particular varieties but I found them attractive.

A difficult day ended.


About wysiwygpurple

I am a family man, a passionate amateur photographer and a retired academic . What's the purpose of this blog? Well in the first instance it provides me with a platform from which to resume writing, an activity I greatly enjoy. What will the blog be about? Anything that takes my fancy but it is likely to arise from things I see and experience, in my family, in my travels, or anything else I feel like. Each daily post will contain one or more images made the previous day. Sometimes the image will illustrate the points made in the prose, and sometimes the prose will attempt to interpret the image. What kind of images will they be? Always safe for work and family. Usually they will be representational, and sometimes they will be impressionistic or experimental.
