Here are the details and some of the entries so far. (Thanks Lucas!)
Well, I simply couldn’t bear not having internet access for 3.5 days so at great expense I taxi-ed into the office today to play / blog / flickr / finish my chapter. Thanks to everybody for the comment-fest, it was wonderful to see so many comments and to realise that people actually take an interest *grin*
Without further ado, let me flickr! Here are two more shots from my series of “raindrops on roses”. I got very wet taking these and several people were running in and out of the education faculty building (where the rose bushes are) giving me weird looks:
Here it is raining into Len’s backyard pond. I had to lean out over his balcony to take this shot, attracting the concern of Len’s next door neighbour, who spotted my doubled over body and came racing out of her house asking me if I was OK:
Here’s a waterlily in the pond. I almost fell in trying to get a close-up:
Here are the ducks that live on campus. One almost attacked me when I went running after them with my camera…
There are lots of Spring showers here in Armidale and I loved the clouds in this next shot. But I didn’t see the people nearby when I was taking it and was stunned when they called out: Are you taking photos of us?? I had to quickly assure them that no, I was just taking photos of the sky. More weird looks my way.
I never realised this but photography can be a frightening hobby you know!
