Accidental 'Pop Art'


I recently had an 'organised' moment, wherein I decided to go through all my old photo cards, and just check if there was any files left on them, and clear them, ready for future use.

Previously I had had trouble with one of the cards; Told that the card was empty, even though I'd recently used it in my camera. I had just considered the photos lost.
However, after checking the card on the PC via a multi card reader (previously I had used my Mac), I discovered that some of the photos were recoverable - Although, I'm quite sure they didn't look like this when I originally took them!

The above is a selection of the images, grouped together based on their bright colouring - Just a sample of the photo files retrieved from the damaged card.

It has been suggested that maybe the card was subjected to too much heat. ...Whatever the reason, I'm now in possession of some rather funky looking images - Which I have come to grow rather fond of, and felt were too cool not to share.

I think they have a real '60s Pop Art' feel.

...Quite sure I could have never produced anything this cool if it was intentional...

Hindmarsh Island


The above photos were taken at Hindmarsh Island and surrounding areas (Currency Creek, etc).

For the love of Poppies!

If you are familiar with my work, you may have noticed that I have just a little bit of a photographic crush on Poppies... They're just such a gorgeous bloom

The following photos are all of Late-Spring Poppy blooms - All grown in our garden, majority from seed.

Carrickalinga - Fleurieu Peninsula


It's been quite a while since I last posted any photos; The above photos were actually taken back on the first weekend of Spring.
We were invited to Carrickalinga (not far from Normanville, in the Fleurieu Peninsula), along with my partners parents, to stay at their friends beach shack, to help them cut down a large tree on the property (which we "conveniently" arrived too late for).
During our short stay, we spent as much time on the beach as we could, where I collected shells, coral, sea sponge, even seaweed and sand.
When we got home, my 'beach loot' was put to good use. I used seaweed to make fertiliser for the garden; sand in the vegie garden; cuttlefish in the avery; and I used the shells and coral to create a beach display in a glass cloche.
We spotted the cows on our drive and pulled over to take a few photos.
