An ordinary photo reminded me of the

Toyota commercials on television…

…with the aid of Photoshop two images become one

What we think of as ordinary,

a eucalypt flower

looks more than ordinary in isolation.

About twelve months ago I again

visited Point Lonsdale and captured

this image of the lighthouse

from the end of the Pier.


Although it appears an ordinary part

of my previous image,

the colours of the seaweed are

anything but ordinary…


..and the delicate nature of this image

is exquisite.


The juxtaposition of the bluestone pavers

and open drainage system and the very

modern rubbish bins in the alley of a town

that dates back to Victoria’s Gold Rush (1850s).



Breakfast by the sea.

In my hometown, the first settlers

arrived in the area in 1841.

Grandfather Bill arrived as

a soldier settler in the early 1920s.

Many of the early graves are marked

with a simple marker and number.

If only those markers could talk.


Texture in graveside fences

With some editing, a cemetery fence

can look a bit special.


And in among this kaleidoscope of colour…

….exquisite (not so ordinary)

beauties like this can be found.
