Tourmaline

Tourmaline have great variety of colors but these little rocks are in my collection.  I also have small tumbled black Tourmaline, not just in the photos).

Pink, Green, and Watermelon.

These look boiling candy and fascinate me as good as it gets, but they also make me feel warm and soothing.

I hope I could share their good energy with you too.  🙂

Snapshots of Blackwattle Bay in one summer afternoon

These were photographed a few days before I flew to Japan to close my 2018.

I procrastinate taking additional half hour for photography after work, but that day was only exception.  I would have not tried any big shot but simply hoped to catch a summer afternoon in Sydney.

Then why didn’t I choose somewhere near or under Harbour Bridge?  I don’t know.  My house is not in the direction where Anzac Bridge leads to, but Anzac Bridge adores me for its architecture and keeps me coming back to, and that day seemed be one of that.

Being so, I did not take a walk the path alongside Blackwattle Bay and I found number of small challenges in taking snapshots.

It was a little fun afternoon.

Pyrite

I met this chunk before Christmas last year, shortly after I drew this.

It is just as good to hold in my hand and it chuckles me my guts.  I can not explain well but this is how I feel.  It’s like this guy talks to my solar plexus.

I feel a bit sorry for this having byname; ‘Fool’s Gold (as it looks like a real gold but has no value as gold) ‘.

Well, I am happy to be the one though because I certainly see the value on this.  🙂

Introducing my rocks

I set a new category on my blog menu, which is ‘quartz & minerals’.  This is one of where I bring my passion to apart from photography and drawing, but had not been introduced / talked about in here.  So here we go.   🙂

I had never got interested in those rocks before, rather I was annoyed when they came to me in the form of gifts or souvenir.  I had not that having a clear idea why I was annoyed with them, and even now I can’t.  I must have felt something intense energy from them, I do not know..

Anyway, I started having more interests into them over a given time, and, ..alas, I have small collection of them by now.  🙂

I hope I will be sharing about them with you time by time. img_1976 (1)

Upside down in winter lights

There is a local park nearby my family’s place.  They have the shrine for the goddess of prosperity and growth, and who also is regarded as protecting the park entirely.

I walk in the park when I am at family place, almost everyday, morning or afternoon, ..sometimes even both.

These were caught when I was on my way home from somewhere and was passing the park for taking shortcut.

It was cold but very gentle afternoon, that there was almost no wind that would have stroked the surface on the pond.

This is my belated contribution to Lens-Artists Photo Challenge last month.
