Morning happiness. on Flickr.
One of those happy mornings where the sunshines through the kitchen window and Soxi enjoys some vitamin Ds. Too bad you can’t hear the purrrrrrrrring. :-)
Certainly not the finest photo I’ve taken but it captures a certain amount of her joy…
Picture 1,000: Bird. on Flickr.
I joined Flickr back in May 2005. I think it was just before Yahoo! bought them, or thereabouts, and I was uploading images using an old Nokia phone (N73 or earlier). For a long time it was my favourite web site, then other things came along and it got neglected for a long time. About a year ago I started to get more into it as a way of passing the time on the endless work trips I was doing. Doing so reignited my love for photography and just snapping stuff.
While this picture isn’t the best, I think it’s okay for my 1,000 pic on Flickr. I like this part of Regent’s Park and the endless line of Herrons that stand statue like for a few hundred meters.
You can see them at least two others in the picture. Still. Staring. Watiing.
Fire access on Flickr.
This door is part of the derelict Lots Road Power Station, which I believe is due to be redeveloped into apartments. Right now it’s a beautiful building that is a patch work of colour and decay.
dd’s stuff on Flickr.
Detail of dd’s stuff. London. March, 2013. A shelf in one of our cupboards.
Flying… on Flickr.
Another picture from my flight back from Milan earlier in the week. Really calm and beautiful views of the moon, clouds and the mountains poking through the clouds. A little sun is reflected on the engine.
Milan. Abstract. Dream. on Flickr.
A horrible, horrible work travel day. Up at 4.30, taxi at 6, rush to plane, just made it. Nice meetings. Then 6 hour door to door return. Punctuated by a dreamy, 20 minutes flight out of Milan, watching the mountain tops punch through the clouds. Red sky. Moon. Really wonderful moment that almost makes the travel worth it. Lovely. Really.
Anthropologie image on Flickr.
Today it was snowing in London. All day. Light, heavy, wet. Nothing settled. We struggled to get out after I’d been up since 5am watching Australia fight back in the cricket. Zaggi was sick a couple of times due to some strange seeds dd had put on her morning meat. Out, about. We went to see the Man Ray portrait exhibition, had a nice lunch, went to Liberty and Anthropologie, two of dd’s fav stores. She bought a nice scarf for a friend. I wandered around and took some pics.
Sun on Hong Kong boat on Flickr.
Yesterday the sky created this strange image, sun shining down on a slip of ocean highlighting a little bitty boat. Quite lovely really.
Home on Flickr.
This is from our house in London back in 2006. The South African Tin Tin we had still had his quiff (it has since broken off and been lost). We have our favourite wooden man from France sitting next to him, lots of lucky cats, our wedding, and my fav things from Scott — the Wrong Hair Do. We also have something I think is called a “VCR” and our multi-region DVD which is a good 11 years oild and going strong. And a lovely pic of Soxi from Simone. And rockets and other bits and pieces. And I think that is Monsieur Beckham. Still playing for England.
Hawk on Flickr.
Ah, a lovely Hawk is flying below my hotel window. Swooping down onto the water, then up again. Happiness.
Atherton Tablelands rain on Flickr.
Atherton Tablelands field. Rain. Hoses and a tree.
Waiting in London on Flickr.
This is the view I see each morning while waiting for the train to Gloucester Road. It’s a bit bleak right now. Very grey because you can see the winter sky. I seem to remember blue, but that was a few weeks ago in Port Douglas. Urgh. Winter!
Afro-Cuban Night Spot on Flickr.
This is one of those cards with a photo that you used to get in night clubs or restaurants around Australia. The picture, usually for a bunch of people sitting around having dinner, would be taken early in the night, the photographer would rush back to their studio, develop everything, then return and sell the pic.
There was an older lady who used to do this in the 10 or so years we lived in the Cross in the 90s and 00s. It must be a decade since we saw her (though we haven’t lived there for longer than that…).
Esky 2, personal on Flickr.
A picture from the 70s, down the beach, with an Esky. This is me, my sister, brother and our cousin. I think we were down the beach for a few days over Christmas because Mum was working…I think. I seem to recall this being an awning in front of a caravan. Not too many other memories of this trip, except I have always loved this picture. Reminds me of purse Aussie summer happiness.
Esky on Flickr.
Just got back from a very quick two week trip to Australia. Think I slept about 2-3 hours over the past 30+ so expect to crash pretty soon. But before I do I’m going through some of the photos we took over the past few weeks. I like this one, which was taken by pressing the iPhone against the train windows while travelling to Ballarat to see my parents. I’ve saturated the colour a little, but otherwise it’s as taken in all its suburban glory. The train travels alongside houses like this for miles. Each is packed next to the other. Much like every place I lived as a kid, except back then there was a little more backyard and just a tad more space between the houses.
