Pied Butcherbird

For tonight's #birdpoker +Bird Poker  hand  Calling , hosted by +Phil Armishaw  I have selected a Pied Butcherbird that I saw recently near my home.  These birds have a really distinctive and, I think, beautiful call.

The Burghers of Calais -Bronzes by Auguste Rodin

I thought that I'd end my final Day 5 of the #fivedayblackandwhitechallenge   with a little bit of 'culture'.  These amazing Bronzes are to be found in the Sculpture Garden at the National Gallery of Australia. They are from an edition of 12 that have been released by Musée Rodin, Paris  Many thanks to +Kim Sinclair for inviting me to participate in this challenge

Story Bridge

It's already Day 4 of the #fivedayblackandwhitechallenge
Thanks for nominating me +Kim Sinclair It's really been fun so far!
I took this photo a couple of weeks back and it really did nothing for me as a colour shot.  I found that the B&W processing gave it a more interesting feel - probably a solution I wouldn't have thought of prior to this challenge!  Once again, if you enjoy the idea of the challenge - feel free to join us.

The Cygnet

Day 2 of the Five Day Black and White Challenge
I had a wonderful morning out walking with my local Camera Club today. The bird life was really diverse and the morning was very relaxing.
I was nominated for the #fivedayblackandwhitechallenge by +Kim Sinclair and today I will nominate +Tania Sadova  to join the challenge.  The only rules are that you post a black & white photo for each of 5 days and that you nominate someone else to join in on each day.

Sometimes black and white does improve a photo but we don't think of doing it. :)

Rainbow Lorikeet....again

For #birdpoker +Bird Poker hosted by +Phil Armishaw  tonight's theme is Common Birds in your Area 
I have chosen an older shot of a Rainbow Lorikeet.  Both here in Caboolture & whilst I was living in Townsville, these birds are always about in great numbers, particularly in all the native flowering trees & shrubs.  It's almost at the point now where I rarely photograph them anymore as they are so plentiful!  They wake me every morning squabbling in the Bottlebrush tree outside my window!  Mind you I still find their antics hilarious to watch & they really are the 'clowns' of the local birdlife!

Jacaranda

The Jacaranda trees are in full bloom across Brisbane.  It's enough to prompt fear in the heart of Uni Students all over town because the blooming of these beautiful trees always heralds that the end of year exams are just around the corner!
I thought this one might be a suitable post for +Tree Tuesday  curated by  +Christina Lawrie +Allan Cabrera +Ralph Mendoza +Kim Troutman +David R Robinson #TreeTuesday

(Australian) Eastern Water Dragon
(Intellagama lesueurii)

This is another shot from my Camera Club outing yesterday and my first post to +Reptile Monday  curated by  +Will Pirnasch +Nicole Best #ReptileMonday

This Water Dragon was very obliging and sat still for a couple of minutes whilst I took photos from several angles, before slipping away silently into the reeds at the waters edge.

Thanks Kim. They are fun to watch - there are lots of them up here. They seem quite used to people too.

Past It

This old and spent Banksia bloom made a perfect candidate for my Day 3 of the #fivedayblackandwhitechallenge .

I was nominated for the challenge by +Kim Sinclair and although I am supposed to nominate one more person each day, I find that most of my contacts and G+ friends are already on board with the challenge.  So I decided that today, if you read my post & feel like you would like to participate, consider yourself nominated :-) and happy posting!

Brisbane's Story Bridge At Night

I took this shot as we took a leisurely cruise home along the river after Riverfire a couple of weeks back.  It was quite challenging because the purple/pink lighting on the bridge overwhelmed everything else.  The shot was also made more complex as it had to be taken 'handheld' on a moving boat!
I thought this would be a good one for +SaturdayNightLight  curated by  +Dirk Heindoerfer #SaturdayNightLight as it was even captured on a Saturday!

Beginning a new chapter in the story of my life
Introduction
I'm  a retired mum with two adult daughters.   I now live Caboolture in Southern Qld, following the loss of my husband to cancer during 2014
I've loved photography and photo journalling for years and have built up a fairly large portfolio  I previously used an old Chinon SLR & a 'point & shoot' Lumix DMC-LZ2 
About 2 years ago I finally bought a decent camera (Canon 600D) that I'm using to extend my knowledge & range of  different photography techniques, composition & post processing tricks & tips.    All constructive comments are gratefully received!! 

I am a member of the Townsville Photography Club, (albeit from a distance)  and I have now joined the local Caboolture Photography Club.

I am still one of the Moderators for the +Sacred Sunday community on G+ but I have been regrettably absent from commenting for over 12 months, due to the process of moving and my caring responsibilities.  I am now getting back to G+ on a more regular basis.

The Complex is on a prime site overlooking the Strand and we had lovely afternoon breezes each day. The room was older and had a few 'lived in' blemishes but it was really clean & comfortable and the housekeeping staff did a great job. Reception team were also lovely - nothing was too much trouble. I'd recommend it for proximity to great dining spots, The Strand & the views of Cleveland Bay & Magnetic Island.
