Regular Random – Spring Butterfly

It seems of late I have been doing a few critters and why not, it’s Spring and they are out and about enjoying the sunshine and warmer temperature too. This time it’s a Spring butterfly I captured on some blossoms in a garden. He was so patient and stayed for at least 5 minutes, and…

Regular Random – Water Lizard

Time for something a little different from me…I was walking along a path at Mount Coot-Tha Botanical Gardens in Brisbane, right beside one of the lakes, when this little head popped up over the edge, being careful not to startle him I slowly moved in closer and closer. Coming face to face with nature, even…

Regular Random – Crate of Flowers

Lately, I feel like the only time I get to sneak in a regular random shoot is while I am waiting for a client to show up, that’s OK it is becoming like a little mini meditation session before my shoot. The only drawback is I am using silk flowers and not real ones. I…

Regular Random – Dragons and Chopsticks

Many, many years ago….A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away (sorry I could not resist), I was given these tiny little pewter dragon chopstick holders, or perhaps they were given to Moth, I can honestly no longer remember, when or by whom. Anyway, I was recently on a hunt for new things to…

Regular Random – Kitchen Kitcsh

I have owned these two tiny American Folk Art Angels for many, many years. I have never photographed them before, but I was tidying up in the kitchen and moved them to put something away, I picked them up and looked at them, so sweet, so kitsch, surely they deserved their 5 minutes of fame?…

Regular Random – Last of the Autumn Colour

Just outside my front door, I have two magnificent weeping cherry blossom trees, on either side on a large ornamental fish pond. These trees are dual purpose; in Summer they protect the front windows from harsh early morning – midday sun, in Winter when they have lost all their leaves, they let in the weak…

Regular Random – Grevillea

I bought a new toy recently and I will eventually do a post just on that new piece of kit, but for now, I am still playing with it and learning. It is a Macro Light Ring which attaches to the end of the lens. One of the biggest problems with macro is finding enough…

Regular Random – Two Feathered Friends

Got something a little different, but so sweet for this week’s Regular Random. While in Launceston (Tasmania) the other week we were visiting Batman Bridge (No not Batman as in Gotham) we found these two feathered friends. Such an unlikely pair, a chicken and a Peacock (I assume he is a juvenile as he doesn’t…
