Adrift

Was it your siren song
My desire for an anchorage
Perhaps just chance
The cards dealt to me

I became tethered
Your fate and mine
Intertwined
Stranded together

The winds abated
Water calm, icy cold
A visage of you revealed
The numbing cold

Moaring lines
Severed by the number
Freeing my heart
Pain rending my soul

The vast sea
Rolling deceit
Eddies of betrayal
At long last, adrift

Hide and Seek

Photographing animals in their natural habitat is both equally rewarding and frustrating. When you do get that great shot, all that patience paid off. Sometimes though, they won’t sit where you want them too, or even look at you.

In these times you grab the best shot you can rather than let the opportunity pass by completely.

This Rainbow Lorikeet shot I took a number of years ago at a local park. This was after about 30mins of slowly following it around waiting for it to settle in a good spot.

Early morning photography

I wake up at about 4am everyday. During the week its due to work, on weekends I cant help it. Been doing this for so long my body is conditioned to it.

On the weekends it affords me time to pop over to the local shops to get whatever bits and pieces I need for the day, and Sundays of course is the Sunday paper plus my Tall Caramel Latte at McDonalds. Its a small vice and a treat once a week.

One thing I’m getting back into is my photography. I’ve owned a camera since I was five and have taken lots of photos over the last 35 years. Part of doing that is now taking my camera with me on these very short trips on weekend mornings.

Here are a few shots I’ve grabbed recently.
