Five Photographs – Image 2

I took this on a somewhat lengthier excursion on Sunday. We had stopped for lunch on the escarpment and a passing rain shower eventually caught up with us. While eating my ham & cheese roll and trying to keep the camera dry this shaft of light from a dark and gloomy sky caught my eye. You could say the image is too dark in places and could do with some tweaking but I like the drama.

Observations from my office window

Staring thoughtfully (note not idly) out the window this morning and contemplating my lot in the universe over a steaming mug of tea, a creamy appendage caught my eye. Our offices have a little balcony that overlooks one of the parking lots and after much twisting and jiggling the door gave way and I was able to view it in more detail. Normally a rather dull brown, a mundane palm seed frond had morphed into a quirky piece of art.


A little later in the day, the changing light gave it a slightly different look ………
