Regular Random – Sunny daffodils

I spotted these while I was out food shopping, just had to have them, aren’t they a magnificent drop of Spring sunshine? I could not resist a quick Regular Random after work one night, late, weak Winter light. I can feel it…Spring is coming, soon. Good thing too, I am so over Winter and the…

Regular Random – Cupcakes???

I have something a bit tricky for you this week, yes they are cupcakes, but they are soaps! Look good enough to eat, right? They are from PlanetYum, I have been looking for some for a while. So I don’t have to keep buying (and eating) real cupcakes. This does NOT mean I won’t buy…

Regular Random – King White Protea

So last week I featured my King White protea with the fractal prism filters, but I also took some lovely photos, without and I thought I would share those this week. This plant is a rambling bush (well it is in my garden – I have several), with the most enormous cream coloured flowers. They…

Regular Random – Fractal Protea

Last week I featured some dried hydrangea, that I photographed with my new Fractal prism filters and promised this week some more. Well, here is a King White Protea from my garden.

Regular Random – playing with fractals

I write a little while ago about how I played with some fractal prism filters at the Melbourne butterfly house, how I loved them so much I bought my own set. Between stuff and life and being sick, I had not had a chance to play with them until now. So I spent a simple…

Regular Random – Playing with Prisms

I love experimenting with light in my photography, but up until recently, I have never really played with prisms, adding another element to my macro photography. I had a friend let me have a brief play with them on a recent trip to The Butterfly House, at Melbourne Zoo. Rather strange, but pleasing results, in…

Regular Random – Rainbow Lorikeets

On a recent trip to Healesville Sanctuary, about 40kms from Melbourne, I spent a good five minutes with these cheeky Rainbow Lorikeets, so much fun. It’s been so long since I did a #RegularRandom, I thought it was time. I basically stayed in the one spot and followed them, in the tree, on the ground,…

Regular Random – Tulips

I normally associate Spring with tulips, and it is possible that these are being brought in from the Northern Hemisphere, but here in Australia it is late Autumn, almost Winter. In fact, Winter is only a few weeks off 😦 I have been seeing lots of tulips in shops this last few weeks, I spotted…

Regular Random – Mother’s Day Roses

Every Mother’s Day for the last few years my Daughters have been buying me flowers, not so unusual I know, but they never used to. Since I have really gotten back into photography and especially my still life, they buy me flowers, as they KNOW I will not only enjoy the flowers but also enjoy…
