Lens-Artist-PC-74-Abstract

 

~~~~~

Because I have a low impression of my ‘art’

I have included the original image

prior to its abstract version.

And, yes some of the originals are ‘duds’

with a heat map filter applied.

These autumn leaves look very lifeless to me.

However, they take on a different look with a filter added.

I have had people express displeasure

at my bright heat map filters.

However, colours are easily changed.

 

I think this is a canola crop nearing harvest.

The spider web (foreground, left of centre)

caught my eye.


With some preset filters.

I am sure this is a water shot. 

Cropped and out of focus.

 

With a heat map applied.

A late addition…

Lens-Artist-PC-73-Cold

 

~~~~~

All my life I have lived within

a half hour drive from the coast,

Therefore I have never experienced the extremes

of inland climates or the cold associated with altitude


Single digit temperatures is noteworthy

and snow in the high country, has been making

news all of October and November.

This definitely one of those noteworthy cold days.

Whilst having breakfast one July morning

in the winter of 2007 I notice water running

over the edge of the gutter for a few seconds.

A few days later a similar occurrence.

 

This time armed with camera and ladder

I discover this river of ice which had formed a

horizontal icicle out to the edge of the spouting/gutter.

I have never seen this happen again.

Loyal pets waiting

Taji waiting to be released and have a run

And I will never forget Brandy…

As he waited patiently for me…

Just wish all dogs were as faithful as he was.

Lens-Artist-PC-71-Creepy

 

~~~~~

Arachnids and reptiles make…

…my blood go cold when first sighted.

~~~~~

I really did not think I had so many images…


…and as for creepy these take the cake

as far as I am concerned.

 

Even this made me utter an expletive after

I had quickly rubbed my hand over this piece of wood

not noticing the spider until after the even.

I didn’t have the presence of mind to ask

what the spider was embedded in.

I just hope the maker does not present it to me at Christmas.

Lens-Artist-PC-70-Monochrome

 

~~~~~

Recently I visited a previously unheard of town called

Dunnstown

Lunch at the local ‘Watering Hole’

Although no locals were frequenting the bar for lunch

 

Dunnstown and its Shamrock Hotel are not all that far from Ballarat

where some of our best gold deposits were discovered in the 1850s.

The inter dominion is Harness Racing’s

answer to the Melbourne Cup.

The caption below this image reads…

 

‘A tribute to

Donald F. Murphy whose forsight

has made Dunnstown

The Harness Horse Capital’

Lens-Artist-PC-68-Layered

 

~~~~~

Layers from Italy and Germany

this week.

Layers of Black Forest Cake.

 

One of my favourite buildings and its layers

 

 

Inside, the layers are smaller…

 

 

…but more plentiful.

 

And the smaller layers create

the larger layers.
