This is a baby cockatiel that my aunt is hand raising. He is so cute and is incredibly warm - like a fuzzy little hot water bottle. It was very hard to get a sharp shot of him. There was very little natural light and he is a wriggler. My sister was doing all she could just to hang onto him.
How to depict cold in the blazing height of summer - what else is there but ice cream. In this case a rainbow paddlepop, a perennial favourite. It;s a fairly standard shot because I couldn't think of what else to do with it.
A boiled egg for breakfast in one of the egg cups I brought back from Turkey. Preferably a breakfast egg should have a runny yolk, this one was left for just a smidge too long. Photographically, I like the texture in the photo in the egg white and the shell.
You can only go so macro without a macro lens. So I just did what I could. Rameses here was kind enough to pose for this close up. Fortunately, he is an easygoing kind of a sheep. I wish the lighting had been a bit more balanced. The detail of his right eye was lost in the shadows.
If you ever wondered what a kangaroo settling down for snooze looks like, it's something like this. I used a long lens for this one, so the depth of field is a bit shallow to keep the shutter speed up.
I realise that this photo is quite similar to last weeks. So this will be the last animal photo for a while.
I guess someone might have slept on this bed at some point, but it is not an enticing prospect. This is a photo I took last year in one the alleyways of Canberra (the photos I post are usually taken in the week of the theme, but this week was impossible). I desaturated some of the colour - which I think better conveys the atmosphere.
Romance showmance. Beer and dumplings, what more could a girl ask for!!
Street food and street photography are two of my favourite things. The hardest thing I find is to get a good composition in front of a clean background. The composition here could be better, but overall I think it is okay. Sometimes you just have to take what you can get.
Meet the Spirit of Ecstasy - the hood ornament of the Rolls Royce. I tried to keep a fairly high contrast to keep an intensity to the image. The car was stationary, but I like how the reflections give an idea of movement.
