Been so looking forward to the big blood moon tonight, but after days of brilliant weather the clouds are coming across. These black and white shots from a block being demolished at a local school match my sombre mood…
…and I noticed that there was still children’s artwork on one of the walls.
Photo from the net, but altered a little for the haiku…
My poetry and photo book is now available on Amazon! ‘Seen from the Gallery’ by Maureen Sudlow (although they seem to think my name should be Sidlow)
Thought I’d have a try at some macro shots – don’t have a macro lens, but I added two extension tubes (10x and 15x) to my standard lens…
…ended up crawling through the grass, and getting some blurred shots of a bee’s backside. But I did love the thistledown.
Taken on a Sony ILCE-6000 f5, ISO 100, 1/25. I took some later shots with just the 10 x extension but I think I’ll try the 15 x on its own next.
I thought it would be easy to paint my artist’s bits and pieces…
…but it wasn’t.
I was heart-broken when this beautiful butterfly was snatched by a bird…
Spending time waiting is never easy, and I notice the small sounds. Sounds of water running into the washing machine, Rod shifting his ladder as he paints. I want to carry on with my painting, but can’t settle. The hum of the fan becomes a background to this heat, and the waiting…
A long time since I was home. Maybe it’s time to go back.
and the phone rings
so far away
My second published poetry and photo book has finally arrived! – and it’s looking good. I have half a dozen copies at a special pre-release price of $NZ15 (plus postage). Use my ‘contact’ button to get your order in, or message me on facebook.
Just a taster:
a soft sound
as small grey feathers
from darting flight
I hold in my hands
of a song
