Beach Sculpture 3:
Pop up structures on the beach up and down our coast. Not that I'm down at the beach all day, but I've never seen one being constructed.

I Iike to imagine we have our very own Crop Circle Mystery by the ocean.

Oyster Creek: Black & White tranquility

The early morning shots had gone with the sun higher in the sky. Luckily the wind had not come up...and this was the scene.

Southside - Oyster Creek.
Looking east over the tea tree steeped water towards the ocean. A surfer makes his way to the waves whilst a train whose tracks run so very close behind me, makes its own way south to Sydney.

Grevillea: A flower in waiting.
Macro photo made from the teeniest embryo of a grevillea.

The reproductive organs of these plants are very human-like (or vice versa). Made me blush a bit.

Banksia motion-Abstract.
I was on my tippy toes in the soft sand focusing on making this photograph of a banksia tree, and lost my balance... So this happened. Not so ICM (intentional camera movement) but movement all the same.

Beach Shade:
Even off the tree, this leaf provides shade for a River She-Oak cone. Found resting on the beach.

Dragonfly: A smile to make you smile on Hump Day!
This beauty was perched on a Snail Creeper (a perfumed plus plant) in the back garden. I couldn't believe it stayed still long enough for me to take more than one photograph. So exciting. To have butterflies, dragonflies and bees in my world, makes it an infinitely better place.

Yardstick of the past:
This treasure was my maternal grandfather's yardstick, lovingly displayed on the hallway entrance table. It is in inches, made from an unknown yet rich beautiful wood, and has metal joints to aid it's foldability. Poppa, or Pop as we called him when we were "older", used it for odd carpentry jobs about the house. The quality and workmanship of this small, simple yet important tool is a measure of his own presence he had in our lives.

And it can still can pack a good pinch of your finger flesh if you don't fold it carefully!

Hydrangea Bloom in Vase:
Second in the series, raiding my mother's flowers arrangements...this time a hydrangea in a vase. And actually not borrowed from someone else's garden! A beautiful flower visually and if you're on the tactile side, try cupping fully in both hands and gently and ever so slightly squeezing. A sensation of Lush fullness.

Banksia in a Vase:
So it was raining...again, too wet for outside photo adventures. Thus, I found myself wandering the hallways (literally) discovering this Banksia (named after Sir Joseph Banks) which had been plucked and vased by my mother, who has a wonderful penchant for picking flowers, grasses, twig twists and the like, usually not from her own garden, and rehoming them.

She had this beauty displayed on the hallstand. Light from a small strip of window lit the scene. Playing with the mystery of light, shadows.

Banksia Twig: A casualty of the recent floods, this tree like many along the banks had their support system washed away. Captured this after a shower of rain...and thus the drip.

A momentary respite from the rains: Tea Tree stained creek has broken through at Hungry Head “beach” meeting an angry ocean stirred up by heavy rains and clouds about to drop another load. Note the person mid left of frame for scale.

Rail bridge to nowhere: I have a love of rail travel. I get melancholic and whistful seeing these majestic structures, made with sheer grit, fortitude of spirit and vision of adventure, no longer in use.
