Wordless Wednesday

Okay so not a totally ‘WORDLESS’ Wednesday. Last week for my online photography course I had to take an ordinary everyday object and take a photo making it something more than it was.

So what do you think ??? Did I achieve that ??

Oh and BTW…guess who got 100% on her first assessment ???

 

Travel Theme: Blossom

Blossoms…having reverted to rather chilly mornings having blossoms as the travel theme this week brought me back, if only in my dreams, to the softer days of spring. I am missing them. Last week my fire died, well the flue part of it, and I am waiting on it to be repaired, keeping my fingers crossed the temperatures don’t drop any further until it is.

I would really love your help identifying some of these. I do love flowers, and grow a few but am hopeless when it comes to knowing what it is I have half the time.

I do know that this is a protea. Hard to miss that one. No idea what type though.

This is a nasturtium right ? Again...no idea what type.

So out of my league here. I found this beauty on a walk with Chevvy.

I admit defeat with this one. Found in a garden in Matamata.

Thought I should end on a high note. These are daisies...right ???

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: The Color Purple

A song from my wayward youth…by Deep Purple…goodness how this brings back memories. Ones I am in no way sharing with you lot !!!!

I admit it…I have added a couple of older images here…but they are soooooo PURPLE !!!!

And who among you remember this song? I used to pray that one day I would meet such a fearsome creature in my travels. I mean the purple people eater used to rock from the horn in his head and sing ‘bam boom’, that is pretty cool !  I figured I was safe as I wasn’t purple.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Community

I found this community busy outside by my front steps. Hours later and lots of photos taken…only one image comes even close to making me happy. Well – no, not happy – but at least it shows what I was trying to do. Back to the drawing board I guess.

Ants - macro

And now…for something completely off track.

I read about this during the week, and would really like your opinion. People are pouring aluminum down ant hills to make art. With the poor old ants in residence.

I was taken aback to say the least…okay they may be ants…and at times they are annoying, but seriously. This is cruelty right ???

Here is a video of a scientist doing just that. It seems to me that even for science there must be better ways to study ants than to pour molten aluminum over them.

What do you think ????
