Emotography – Week 19/2016

Castleforbes Bay (2)


There is more than the surface
serene as it may be
what is seen is not all
the still above
hides movement below
we all are more

than our reflection

Random Photos – Week 12/15

On Wednesday I left home early for work, and stopped at Franklin and took some photos.

Seagulls on Jetty

This is my favourite shot of the morning, I love the misty pale colours of the far shore, the waves lapping against the jetty, and the little morning cluster of seagulls.

I couldn’t resist the flash of the red yacht against the misty hills.

Seagull Flying

Some of the seagulls started to fly off and I managed to capture this one, but I admit to having to do a bit of editing to get the photo to look smooth.  (I had a massive “will I – won’t I” argument with myself about doing so much noise reduction, but in the end I figured it was my photo and I should do what I want with it, it doesn’t have to be “Real Life” all the time).

Just a short way further up the road the Pelicans often sit on this log, sometimes as many as 5 will be there.  This morning there were only two, and a smaller fly-in-friend.

The photo was taken on Friday afternoon -on my way home.  I saw him in the water out of the corner of my eye as I approached the bay, luckily for me, even though he flew off from the water when I stopped, he didn’t go far.

Hope your week was full of calm, with a hint of colour to liven it up.

Driving through Mordor, play day with Glass, Polymer & Foil

Today was Play Day! I’ve had a great day finishing, starting, and getting half-way through, some projects.  So here are some pics to give you a visual idea of how my day went.

Got up at 7am to get ready to take D2 to up the road to catch a ride with a friend,as they were going to town to attend an anime convention.  Took picture of mist on the river (looks like it should be in Mordor somewhere).

Mist on Huon

Home to coffee, breakfast, washing clothes, make a couple of dichroic glass pendants and put them in the kiln to cook. (still cooking).

Finish off Barley Sugar Tin, bake & varnish.Image

String 5 glass pendants I made weeks ago to make 5 necklaces:

Start foiling top of large box:


Then a potter outside in the garden, lunch, another coffee, read the paper, start polishing D1’s polymer teapot, take photos, download, edit & upload photos (76ish, but who’s counting), update Facebook page, collect D2 from bus, have tea, and now here I’m here;  post to blog.

Still need to upload jewellery photos to website, write descriptions and price tag items so I can take them to the gallery next week.

Think I need another coffee.
