These little fishes got such a rough deal! Since becoming an
underwater photographer I’m not longer able to eat fish without thinking
murderer! Totally hypocritical on my part since I’m not remotely vegetarian and
if calamari looks like onion rings I’m still tempted.

Taken whilst on holiday in the Philippines in March. How could these little guys be ugly ducklings – they are so cute! I couldn’t believe how many little baby animals one gets to see when you stray out of the City ;)

I love to fly, well perhaps not the actual flight part and definitely not the check-in, but I do love to travel. An essential part of travelling abroad is the flight. Until they invent teleporters (and test them because we don’t want to end up like Jeff Goldblum!) air travel is here to stay. Occasionally though, if you get a window seat, the most amazing views unfold! That’s gotta be my favourite part.

My photofriday entry is a bit late this week since this time I actually took a new photo!

I was going to submit this one but it’s just a little dull & predictable!

Mystery Macro!

After the trauma and indignity of having to go and try on dresses yesterday evening I came home and retreated into the wonderful world of macro. On the pbase forums there is a PAD (photo-a-day) challenge of “macro with a catch” which caught my interest. The idea is, you make a macro of something and everyone has to guess what it is. Then the next day you tell (or show) people what it was.

Here is my 1st attempt. Please feel free to join the guessing fun!

I’ll be showing the mysteries and their answers on this page:

Unfortunately for me, this photo was better in my memory than in real life. Taken in 2006 on a compact camera in bad visibility in Thailand. The other photos in the gallery from that time are much better but this alas is the only spiral I have…

Photo Friday – ‘Religion’

Hmmm… this is a tricky one this week. Being agnostic (on the fence, no faith but not atheist either) myself I have mixed feelings about religion. It can drive humanity to great heights (creating great works of beauty or amazing charitable acts) or to low low depths (war, terrorism, racial hatred etc). So what to photograph? Well, there’s religious people, religious places, religious imagery, fallout from religious acts (good and bad). Plus there are all sorts of different religions. I guess it depends of what kind of spin you want to put on it, or in my case, what pictures in my photo back catalogue fit the theme ;)

I chose this one from a small church garden in Cuba because I think someone needs to pray for Humanities future.

These were some of the others I was considering – Nuns from the Vatican in Rome, Scenes in Venice, Monks in Thailand and the Sun Temple in Peru. Click for full galleries.

Photo Friday – ‘The Great Outdoors’

This week’s Photo Friday entry: ‘The Great Outdoors’

Ah.. summer is here so where do we head? Some of us head to Egypt for some lovely Red Sea diving! That’s where I was last Friday and the reason my photo Friday is late (hopefully I’ll get around to a trip report or at least a few photos from that here soon)! Here is my raise to this weeks challenge: the great outdoors. Mike and I don’t really like to get too near the (above water) nature so here is my photo from Peru (Machu Picchu) to prove that we really do go outside sometimes.
