Parsley, Capsicum and unknown.

Unknown no longer! It’s an onion flower. Thanks Geoff.

Vegie Patch - Compilation - 2009

I essentially have no landscape images left, so unless I can dig up some old stuff, it’s going to be this type stuff for the next two weeks. I’m planning a trip to Lake Monger and to the Stirling Ranges (borrowing a dSLR from my photography teacher) around then. After that I have a month in Nepal, so by Christmas time I should have a good supply of photos to last me throughout next year. So for now, enjoy short depth of field!!

My Pond

Since there’s no waterfalls or anything snazzy like that over my way to photograph, I thought I’d put up a picture of my pond to provide a bit of running water. No fish, no frogs, just water and a pump. I don’t really know why we have one, a bit of an impulse really, one holidays I just decided to dig a hole and get one. I hadn’t really planned the logistics of it very well, and to complicate things there was an old sewerage well underneath were i was digging. when i removed a shovelful of sand and the well cracked I thought the earth was opening up!

Took this shot tonight with my little handheld camera on a gorilla tripod. I experimented with a few lighting techniques like a handheld LED torch and the popping the old shed light on.
