01 September 2008
We have this thing in New Zealand that my American friends think is peculiar. Okay, not just one thing... But in any case, we start spring on the first of September. I'm told we should wait until the correct day, but we always start on the first.
That was yesterday. So the day before that, I was thinking about how much difference it did, or did not make. I mean the seasons are a mess anyway, right? And then I took the camera, and went outside into our messy garden.
It might not have been spring anywhere else, but it sure was in the garden. I'll be going back there the next time the sun pokes its smiling face out.
So with spring, thoughts turn to... no, not that! Renewal, sun, life, warmth... but not cleaning. Nope.
Here's to some nice weather!

Over the last couple of weeks, I've been intrigued by a few fountains. I think that's good. These aren't new fountains. Nor are they unfamiliar. I just seem to be looking at them differently. Maybe it's the time of the year. Anyway, here are a group of the outputs.
What? I never said they were happy fountain pics. It's winter. :-)

Most of you won't understand, but...
It's the middle of winter here, and I got to thinking about hot and cold, and how much in a photograph depends on colour. Red, it seemed to me, was the colour that most purely indicated heat... so what could I photograph that contradicted that? Things from the refrigerator, of course!

I'm not a people photographer, really. I prefer the certainty of urban life, the permanence of architecture, the colour of the city... generally.
But my eldest son came home to visit after travelling the world for a long time. I happened to be attending a photo-portraiture course. It was inevitable, really. :-)
Thanks Dave, and not just for posing!

This is a night shot,believe it or not. I couldn't see much at all.
Grossly overexposed, with the RAW pushed well beyond sane limits... I decided I liked it...
Don't get used to it, though. :-)
