My days are still crowded.
Again, I reached the end of the day with “nothing in the can”. During the late morning, I had been on a bus tour of Wellington’s CentrePort, and though it was an excellent and fascinating tour, it was a total bust for photography. Because we were in a security area akin to being “airside” at an airport, our IDs were checked and then we were loaded into a large bus with shaded windows. Never mind. I learned a lot. Mary had been given a piece of a Daphne plant in flower so I had a close encounter with that. The flower above is approximately 10 mm (half an inch) from tip to tip.
Mary’s collection of material from the each has been mentioned before, so I turned to some of the shells. I think this is a Nautilus. The black background is the screen of my iPad (in the off position).
My next image is in wry acknowledgement of the old wisdom that says just because you can doesn’t mean you should. I took images of a limpet, a mollusc and a starfish and sandwiched them. I had fun doing it, but it’s not a technique I would try often.
And that is the end of the day.
