April 8, 2015 … discomfort and frustration

It seems I am not so nice to know when I am frustrated.

Knives

Knife block

The combination of cold wet weather and the still painful foot limited my possibilities yesterday. I stayed with the in-house still life shots, seeing what caught my eye in the house of my daughter and son-in-law.

Lights

Light fittings

Various angles and fragments challenged me to do something.

Gingerbread

Wrought-iron gingerbread, typical of Melbourne houses of the era

 

It is a house from the early part of last century that has been nicely renovated.

Mirror and selected art

Catherine and Mark have added their own touches of course.

Wet

Wet, wet, wet outside

Meanwhile, outside the window, the wind and rain lashed at the bamboo in the planters.

And that’s all I have for the day except to observe that despite my bad mood my birthday was observed in style.

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.
