I have been tempted by Sonel’s black and white challenges.
I think some of these are more abstract than others, but I am trying 🙂
Buildings in Perth:
Flame trees – one with a willy wagtail:
zygocactus flower & a rose:
Hyde Park’s bewintered plane trees:
These w I feel come closer to abstract: a duck in Hyde Park on the ponds, and a spooky seagull at Matilda Bay:
I can’t find any others to link back to 😦
This is very late – I completely forgot about it. The so-called ‘super moon’ in June.
In Perth, it was a wild rainy day with wonderful clouds at sunset, but even before that, I met a friend for coffee in the city, the clouds were building:
and a rainbow:
Then it was back in MtLawleyShire and late afternoon:
Then it was sunset time:
The glow through the clouds was intensely ethereal
I then crossed the road to be in place for the moon, and when I looked back west:
But would the sky clear in time for the moon rise?
In short – no.
The clouds continued to be amazing – here is an apparition (one dark, one lighter) briefly in the night sky:
Finally, thorugh the clouds – the moon, although it was well past risen:
& in the clear night sky:
So sorry I didn’t post this earlier. I hope you enjoyed it 🙂
Before I went to work this afternoon, my darling Fattee Cattee posed winsomely:
then I did a quick dash to the flame trees with the *big* camera (the dSLR). It was full of birds but they were flying and teasing and fighting and not at all still! I caught a few of the wattle birds:
Then it was time for work. At the break I went out to see what the evening held – & it held the remnants of what would have been a beautiful sunset. Experimentally, I tried to capture it.
Between the tall, straight street trees:
and from across the busy intersection looking beyond Subiaco Football oval:
I turned around and rising east over Hay Street was the moon, making a mockery of the street lights:
and here it is, the almost, just slightly not quite, full moon.
I don’t know if there’ll be flame trees or birds or sunsets of the moon tomorrow – there might be Matilda Bay but there will also be a storm and heavy rain coming in the late afternoon and evening. Ah well – we need the rain…
