A driftwood ~ 流木 ~

…that’s laid on the beach i took a walk on the other morning. And

that inspired me more than just that.

It looks something living creature.

It may look even having a face that looks unhappy.

Where did you roll in from?

Now you are free from rough surf journey on the water.

Have a good rest.

Until you decide to roll off to the sea again.

Thank you for stopping by.

View at Point Danger

I did not think that i really enjoyed taking shoreline photos at Point Danger; the headland locating at the south end of Queensland state.

Here are collections of which I particularly like for the way how waves were caught by long exposures.

Singing in the winter lights

They were all photographed at Royal Botanic Garden, Sydney.

Here we are still in winter, and at the day, the morning breeze was still cold.

However, sunlight was bright and sky was clearer and bluer.  Flowers I trained lenses were rustling lightly, as if they were humming or singing in the sunshine.

They didn’t stay still but bounced all the time along with breeze came through.

We are not snowballs but we are flower balls.

Resting

This was photographed when I explored path in a park which I had seldom visited.

The main part was made open for sports people that tennis courts and field were available to play. At that time there were people with their dogs unleashed while some others were playing football.

I found some small boats including this after I passed those area and stepped into the path led to a bit of bush. I liked the quiet ambiance produced by the boats and surrounding. It was a good contrast with the ambience at the sports field.

And this is my contribution to this week’s

Monochrome Madness hosted by Leanne Cole .

Monochrome Madness is the community space she opens for other photographers and audiences who love monochrome / black and white photos. Here gives me a great opportunity and challenges about monochrome images. As it is open community, everyone can participate.

Morning photography at Bondi Beach

I did not spend time for photography recently (as I mentioned in my earlier post) and it made me a bit stressed.  The best way to release the stress is to take my camera and get out out of house.  So I did it this week that lazy me got up very early in the morning to catch sunrise.

I chose Bondi Beach for photo spot, because (luckily) I had an appointment first in the morning at Bondi Junction, so why not to start my day earlier to capture morning shots before I showed up for the appointment.  Sunrise in winter time is rather late (and that is one reason I like winter season) so it is not hard to get to the photography point, as long as I enough arm myself for wind protection.

When I arrived, the sky was quite clear but clouds laying in lower sky like sash belt, which I did not expect and a bit worried if all the morning climax was happened behind the cloud.  Soon I realized that it was my over concern, that the clouds started making  morning sunlight more dramatic yet turning the world in lovely pastel tone in the background.

I am in the middle of selecting photos of which I will keep out of 80 shots I took in the morning.  Once I tidy them up (and I was lucky to find my favorites in them), I am back here and share about them with you.

Here are first two.  It was chilly but nice morning.  🙂
