MtLawleyshire playing with leaves, light and colour

And, apart from playing with light and colour, I should add – a problem.  I know the solution, but it’ll take time and quite a bit of money.  No, not a camera – glasses!

I was told last year that I needed glasses & fairly urgently, and promptly forgot.  But then – I got my zoom lens and – oh dear.  I got such terrible eye strain that I couldn’t focus the camera properly and even when I switched to my little point and shoot, it remained.  So a few scant photos of honey eaters in the flame tree from yesterday.  At least it makes sense of the strange headaches I’ve had over the last week.  Sigh.

This wattle bird was the only decent photo I got – & as you can see, am still learning apertures and so on.  But at least you can see the bird with his glorious yellow underneath.

These two of a singing honeyeater came out OK

and this:

This one surprised me when I downloaded the photos.

But the flowers drenched in sunlight came out OK.

The rest are black and whites – all the photos that sort of failed but I think they are redeemed with the black and white:

This one has come cloud darkness which kinda works.

The one with the flying wattle bird works better in black and white than it did in colour!  And the one next to it is the same – there is a honey eater sipping nectar that didn’t come out well in colour (though I think it needs a wee bit more light):

I experimented with flowers

And Jacaranda tree:

and finally – clouds:

Two photos of the same cloud, but I wanted detail of that lower raggedy edge:

Finally, some portraits of the lovely Fat one:

wanting lemon grass – not the camera!

Next week, I’m finding an optomertrist & then – new glasses instead of the readers I’ve been using for years and years….

    Photos are still good… suffering from eye problems as well… got cataracts that have to be removed… don’t like the idea, but my camera work is now going to hell…

    • thanks for the vote of confidence 🙂 As for your surgery – go for it! My aunt had it done & said the results were amazing. Where the world had felt yellow before, after it shone with all its brilliant whites.
