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…

Regular Random – Stacked Stones

I have found these phenomena before, these stacked stones, they seem to pop-up whenever we are travelling, Cairns to attract travellers and guide them somewhere, often they seem to be located near water…maybe they are sirens calling to the sea. To say I was a little surprised to see them just off the breakwater at…

Regular Random – Birds, Bees & Butterflies

If I add up how much time I spent with each creature, it’s possible it all adds up to five minutes, they are often so quick a minute or so is all you have. These were all taken on a morning stroll in Hamilton Gardens, New Zealand, such a marvellous place to visit – would…

Regular Random – Mother & Pup

I have a full post coming up on an amazing day at Cape Palliser, but you will have to be patient, but I was editing these images and thought I would share just a tiny snippet with you. It was cold, wet and windy as we drove to Cape Palliser lighthouse on a whim, I…

Regular Random – Raspberry Friand

Let’s take a small break from the New Zealand trip, shall we? I felt like I had been holed up on the PC for days, sorting through photos and writing blogs posts, so I decided to go run a few errands, I picked myself up a yummy Raspberry Friand for my afternoon tea, and decided…

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…
