State of mind: Distraction


Couple of clowns JD 2016_1
Oh look at that. Fireworks.

I love the annual agricultural show but this clown looked as though he wanted to be someplace other than at work

Bird Silhouette

A solitary Rosella in the last light of the day.

He is a wild bird and has never had to see the world from the inside of a cage which is as it should be.

Blue Tongue lizard – two photos

I found this little one in my back yard, stressed because of the cold conditions.

It is only a baby Blue Tongue and measured around 20cm from the tip of its nose to the tip of its tail. He/she had an overnight, inside, stay before I let it roam free and hopefully find a warm place before the day lost its warmth.

The answer was blowing in the wind

I have a fasination for windmills and this old one has seen its day.

They were once the answer to pumping much needed water to the surface but now they appear to be left negected and replaced by solar pumping system.

Loading up

Barley grain looks like a swam of bees as it is loaded into the truck and sent to market.

Waiting at the gate

The old ute broke down and the farmer had to walk back to the house.

He wasn’t happy about it either because he hasn’t made it back to fix it for 50 years.

The old red ute broke down at the gate sometime in the late 60's.

Venus and Jupiter


It’s moments like these my inner ‘I wish’ monster sceams for a telescopic lens but like a naughty child I have to ignore it. Tonight’s Venus and Jupiter alignment above my house.
