Every so often the ultra nice (and talented) guy, Seth Apter, requests of his followers that they dig deep into their blog archives for some 'Buried Treasure'. Mine comes from my first year of blogging. I sometimes forget how much I like taking photos, and digging for treasure reminded me.
From December 7, 2011:
While I am a painter, and former potter, I take many photos wherever I go. These are often inspiration for future work.
I don't profess to be an expert with the camera but, occasionally, an image grabs me enough to want to share.
This appealed to my patriotism on Australia Day. I did ask permission to take the photo.
City reflections are always fascinating. Perhaps it will inspire an abstract painting?
Up close and personal at Dubbo Zoo. Those teeth are really dangerous!
A friend's two granddaughters looking at images on a camera. I just loved the obvious connection between them, and the way they are totally absorbed.
What Americans call a carnival we call a show... and who doesn't love one.... all that colour!
We walk each morning past this pond with its abundance of birdlife.
These are called 'bridal veil' funghi, and grow occasionally below my mango tree.
It is absolutely necessary for me to occasionally have a 'city fix' where I can be found ogling clothes I will never wear, and trying on shoes that will never see the inside of my cupboard.
Sunset is a magical time. This one is from my deck...
... and THIS (my pick of the year) is in the famous Kakadu National Park in the Northern Territory.
It would be possible to go on, and on, and on but hey, enough is enough right?
