Night Road

I love the loneliness of country roads at night.

Night road-1201


Circular Quay (a different perspective)

It has been said that, like music, all the original photos of the world have been taken.  Thinking about this on my recent visit to Circular Quay in Sydney (the quay next to the Sydney Opera House) I was eager to explore and take photos of the ordinary in the hope of finding something special.

You may think I am a bit strange, but I don’t mind walking around  a cemetery at night. Actually I find it almost comforting, particularly this one because my late father it at this one.

This photo is very evocative for me as it seems to be saturated with symbolism. I hope you enjoy it.

Cow 224

This a first for the SELens. This photo of cow 244, is the first post created entirely on a tablet device. It’s a bit grainy but to some extent I think it adds to the effect. I love the look of cows and I think this captures something special about 244. I wonder if it’s lonely in that paddock? What do you think?
