July 13, 2015 … diverse and random images

It was a scattergun kind of day.


What is it that makes so many of us suckers for roses?

I pointed my camera at a strange variety of  subjects. Conveniently at hand was a bunch of birthday roses, so here is one of them.


In the Hutt River estuary

At Hikoikoi, the heron was nowhere to be seen, but the water was very still and I wanted to get low down and look across the water to various objects on the sandbank.


Mist and no wind mean that the clouds linger.

On the Esplanade, at Petone, the misty character of the day was worth having a look at. Matiu/Somes was the most substantial item in the landscape.


Lichen – variety unknown to me

When I returned home, I spotted a piece of driftwood in the garden. Mary collects these sort of things. It had some moss and lichen on it so I decided to exercise the macro lens, This little piece of lichen is approximately 20mm from side to side.

That’s enough until tomorrow.




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.

    Yes, I guess some of us are suckers, but for myself, I’m more a “smeller” of roses…
