playgrounds are fun…

Took the kids to the playground this morning and saw some nice shapes and patterns.

University abstract

My daughter went to a ballet rehearsal at Adelaide University.  They wouldn’t let us watch.  I wandered around for a while and this is what I found.

On one of the walls is a small white piece of paper with poem by Anna Akhmatova, a 20 century poet from Russia.

I drink to home, that is lost,
To evil life of mine,
To loneness in which we’re both,
And to your future, fine, -- 

To lips by which I was betrayed, 
To eyes that deathly cold,
To that that the world is bad and that
We were not saved by God.

Kodak 160NC, Pentax P3 and a CPL

These photos were taken with Kodak Portra 160NC film, ideally designed for portraits.  Quite an unusual range of blues emerged, when combined with a circular polarising filter (CPL)

Chips Ahoy

Scavenging seagulls at Henley Beach (Adelaide). They were hanging into a very stiff breeze, just waiting for a tasty morsel.

I shot this with a wide angle lens (15mm), so was actually much closer to these gulls than it appears.
