Dark ascent

Dark ascent

Remember the hill? This is one time I could not make it up last week… I had to stop and walk with frequent breaks so I got the phone out.

Judging by how dark this image is I need a better headlight on the bike but it gave me an idea to light paint the path, something I can continue to work on and improve.

In my defence I am ill (though I did not realise it at the time) and under orders to rest, the timing of which annoys me no end.

Work is being a vampire at present, sucking away at my energy. I may need some Garlic and a wooden stake.

Needless to say I have not had much time to myself but I managed this grab of Parliament House Melbourne lit up like a rainbow in tribute to 49 people on another continent. Thinking about Orlando puts my problems in perspective.

What’s really needed is an abundance of daylight to banish the darkness. Violence and fear is not an option.

Waiting for a bus

Waiting for a bus

I recently mentioned the need to make opportunities and that has led me to using my phone for photography more often. I was at the bus stop with nothing better to do when I noticed the texture of the headlights grazing across the paving.


This is one of the images I made as I waited. I could crop out the blown highlight or remove the cigarette butts though I like this as is. Given this was hand-held in low light with no manual control I’m impressed and encouraged to do this more often.

A selection from 2014

Ever watch a series on television and there is an episode made up almost entirely of bits from previous episodes?

Yep, that’s what this is. I went back through the year to find some images my most recent followers may have missed and to remind myself of what I got up to.

For those of you who have stuck around, thanks.
