August 4, 2015 … teetering on the brink

I came close to defaulting today.


Colourful knitware

Images on this blog are always an expression of the photo-a-day habit. Some days give me more photos than others, but yesterday was almost over before I took a shot. My friend in hospital consumed a lot of my day, and the weather was disgusting anyway. And so my new macro lens got some exercise. Mary knits. A colourful baby bonnet was my first subject.


Better to light a candle than to curse the darkness

I have done candles before, and had a new technique in mind, but couldn’t persuade Photoshop to cooperate. Instead we have a simple image.

And I kept the flag flying.


About wysiwygpurple

Retirement suits me well. I spend much of my time out making pictures, or at home organizing and refining my pictures. This blog provides me with a platform from which I can indulge my passion for improving my photography and at the same time analyze my thoughts about what I have seen, where I have been and what is happening in my life. My images set out to be honest, but that does not mean I have not adjusted them. I use software to display what I saw though the viewfinder to best advantage. My preference is for landscape and nature, and is mostly centred around my hometown of Wellington, New Zealand.

  1. The last quote is so true and apt for the day. Also a nice image. Your friend will be grateful for your attention.

    I’m with Margaret on the candle. Would it not be correct to say that this image probably would not have happened, but for your hospitalized friend? Thank him for us.
