A Golden Display

This week, Cee is looking for a photo dominated by a single colour.

This is a firework I captured in the New Year’s Eve display in Sydney a few years ago. Photographing fireworks is always a bit of a hit-and-miss affair, but I think I got lucky with this one.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Single Colour

Showtime

Cee’s theme for her Fun ‘Foto’ Challenge this week is ‘orange and pink’. Funny, I could have sworn that when it was first listed it was orange and blue. Or maybe I’m getting too old for this malarkey.

Anyway, I don’t have any images of orange and pink together (why on earth would I?), so here’s an orange and blue I made earlier. A performing seal at Taronga Zoo in Sydney.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Growth

Frank’s theme for this week’s Tuesday Photo Challenge is ‘Growth’, so flowers seems like a logical place to go to find an appropriate image, notwithstanding that I posted a picture of some roses last time.

I saw this tightly packed group of lily buds in the Botanical Gardens in Sydney a few years ago. There’s plenty of potential growth here and perhaps the tight crop lifts the shot a little out of the ordinary.

Photobombed by a seagull

This detail of a water feature in Sydney could stand on its own as an abstract or geometric image, but the curious seagull brings life to it (quite literally).

Weekly Photo Challenge: Liquid

With an exposure of only 1/2000 of a second, this detail of a water feature in Sydney hardly looks liquid at all.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Trip

Frank wanted an image on the theme of ‘trip’  for this week’s Tuesday Photo Challenge. As he noted, this is open to various interpretations, although not not all of them are photogenic (and/or legal).

Geographically, the longest trip I’ve ever taken  – apart from the time I measured my length on an unforgiving pavement in Confolens while in search of doors to photograph – is to Australia, over Christmas and New Year, quite a few years ago now.

Even though I’d been to Sydney on business a few times previously, this was the first time I was able to take a more considered view of my exotic surroundings. Imagine going all that way and then also having the opportunity to take a further trip on one of these fancy-looking boats moored in Sydney Harbour.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Exotic

This fearsome creature greets visitors to the Australian Reptile Park, near Sydney. I don’t think I’d care to meet anything more exotic, thank you very much.
