Close Shave

This was way too close and why I wear a #Gath helmet when shooting close out in the water.
The 20mm Nikkor wide angle on a Nikon FE film camera makes it look further away and flatter then it really was.
I recall one of the surfers (maybe not this one) for abusing me for being in the way.
And it wasn't even crowded.
Backstory: this camera and three Nikkor lenses were funded  by an insurance claim when all my fancy threads were stolen off my girl friend's Dad's clothes line!

I love the way you can see the front and the back at the same time.

It's like we are fleas riding the elephant's back.

28mm manual focus Hanimex lens on a Fuji ST801 - myfirst camera with TTL exposure - in a Ewa Marine plastic bag.

After that came the Nikonos and then this century the SPL housing.

Never thought I'd be sharing like this decades later.

Zen again

Yesterday, I neglected my morning meditation to shoot these monarch butterflies that had crashed for the night in my yard.

I knew they would resume their migration as soon as the dew had evaporated from their wings.

Today they are gone.

Thanks for visiting.

"You should sit in meditation 
for 20 minutes a day, 

unless you're too busy... 

then you should sit for an hour"

Farewell Summer

A selection of film
and digital images 
from summer 2014/15 
on the Sunshine Coast

Autumn is coming

Summer is a bit slow
to leave the building
