Flying away to another land, far far away...

Well, come Sunday, I will be leaving on my trip…. And WHAT a trip it will be… I still have a few things left to do though!! I have a house sitter, so the house will be occupied whilst I am away and the 'fur-kids' will be well looked after… But, where AM I going I hear you ask?? EVERYWHERE!!!

I have a conference to go in Monte Carlo, about the middle of the trip, and I have meetings along the way in Europe mainly… I have also set up a meeting in Brazil! BUT, one spot I am REALLY looking forward to, is the visit to St Maarten in the Dutch Antilles. It is like the 'Mecca' for 'spotters' to go to, and I am really looking forward to it!! NOW, I am getting there from a different routing than everything else I have seen; most arrive from Paris or Amsterdam (AF/KLM) or from Miami (any of the major carriers). Where as, I am routing in from SaĆ² Paulo Brazil!!

Anyway, its ALL booked now, and I am ready to go… All I have to do now is pack!! haha

Earlier in the week, I was wanting to do some more 'macro' photography, some close-ups. The old Passionfruit is in flower again, so I grabbed a shot of a flower on it…

This cute little dusty pink Callistemon lives in the back yard. It such a sweet looking colour, and in many ways, better than the red ones that are so common...

Thematic Photographic: - Colourful!

Commelina cyanea
So this is how it works:
  1. Every Wednesday evening, he will post a new Thematic Photographic entry.
  2. Each entry has a unique theme. This week's is...colorful.
  3. You post a similarly themed image over on your blog.
  4. You paste a link to your entry in a comment over with Carmi, or here as well.
  5. If you've already posted something that fits (on a blog, Facebook, MySpace, wherever) simply post the link to the existing entry.
  6. You may post one per day, many per day, one each day of the entire week, whatever suits your fancy. This is all about sharing, so feel free to share to your heart's content!
  7. Please share this link with friends, too. He wants this thing to being photographic happiness to lots of people - and we need your help.

I believe these to be a species of Pennisetum, but unsure as to which! There are so many of them, and I was only there for a second with my camera at hand!!!

Banksia Rose and photo editing...

In this shot, I have taken a picture of our Banksia Rose that is growing up and through or Bottle Brush.

Banksia Rose (Natural)

Here, I have edited it by just reducing the saturation of colour. I sort of like it, do you?

Colour and tones...

I really like the effect of the Tulips in Spring against the rustic earth tone of the Heritage Sandstone Wall...

Grevilla, Australian Native

Grevilla is an Australian Native plant. I personally do not like them, but when in a mass planting and they are all in flower, they do look impressive...
