Mtlawleyshire’s foggy morning

Last Friday Perth had a rare foggy morning.  It doesn’t happen often, maybe once a year and I was working, so I was out of bed!!  I ran outside with camera before getting ready for work.

Normally, the city is visible at the end of the street – not this morning though!


Place where I take sunset photos framed soft nothingness rather than sky:

& the details of things normally almost invisible, like spiderwebs, were clearer:


And details of small things: water drops on a nasturtium growing on a neighbour’s wall:

Then it was off to work.  These are taken looking over a park opposite the college:

and even after the fog had lifted, there were still drops of water caught in the flowers:

It was a wonderful morning, and I hope these photos give you a taste of the beauty of a foggy morning.






A long absence

I have been absent for sooooo long.  Due to a problem that kept getting worse & worse, I was unable to interact with other blogs or read any comments or reply to them.

I finally fixed it.

I was thinking about starting a new blog it was getting so ridiculous.  But I’ve sorted it.

It will take a long time to catch up with you all, and I hope you are all still here.

Here a few pics –  playing with camera and new lens.  And a zoom lens.


It’s that time of year: flame trees and birds.

and my garden refracted in a rain drop catching sunlight on a stem of jasmine:


finally – my gorgeous fat fluffy cat watching….watching



I will be posting more – but now I’m headed out to Hyde Park.  The swans and ducks have babies!!!
