I go through phases between monochrome and colour. I'm not sure what triggers this, but I guess I move according to mood, one balancing out the other.

So click on this postcard to see my RedBubble portfolio in black and white and in sepia.

Kangaroo Paws are us!

http://www.redbubble.com/products/configure/6392456-greeting-cardBeen out and about today. I have taken lots and lots of flower photos and shall be putting more up but for now these three Kangaroo Paw pictures are available.

The Kangaroo Paw is the floral emblem of the state of Western Australia, which is where I grew up. These ones are growing in the grounds of the University of Sydney. There are so many varieties there!

These are shown here as cards but they are also available as postcards and prints.

Western Australia is known as the Wildflower State. Not because the other states don't have any wildflowers but because the flowers of W.A. are unique, having been separated for millions of years from the rest of Australia by desert.

Smallfox Photography promotion

I mentioned this in an earlier post but I think it got lost in the main entry so I'll say again:

Any member (old or new) who joins

and gets two more members to join - well they can have anything at cost. They can even custom request an item to be made. Did I say two? Hey, why not even one?

If fact, for every new member a member refers, any one item at cost. So if you refer three people, get three items!!

I am very much a nature lover - indeed though I live in the city I always feel more at home in the natural world of forests, ocean, rocks, trees and animals.

So I take these photos whenever I get the chance (not often enough) and have, as I type, 117 photos of animals and animal related subjects on RedBubble.

Come and see THE ZOO for all your animal art needs!

The new blog

A supplementary blog to the Smallfox Photography blog: My Backyard. To quote the about page:

It exists because I seem to be taking a lot of photos in my small backyard in Sydney. Mainly shots of birds, for they seem highly attracted. Strictly speaking, I guess, they are not in my backyard usually but taken over the fence where the trees are. And there are a couple of shots which will be from out the front. Still, I shall not nitpick myself on these trifling issues.

So there you are. If you haven't already heard, now you have. Please enjoy.

Featured Photo Dancer 1

This photo, Dancer 1, was featured today in

Turkey and Turks around the World

on RedBubble.

This dancer was at the Sydney Coffee festival a few years ago in an improvised Turkish Coffee House at The Rocks. My wife and I happened upon it quite by accident, quite unaware that it was even on. The atmosphere was great there, food cooking, the smell of coffee and the smoky haze. And this dancer was fantastic!


I posted this on the Smallfox Photography blog last night so I am just putting a link HERE about changes to SFP.

Picture the Pitcher

Pitcher Plants are such wonderful things!! I should probably get some myself to eat the mosquitoes around here this time of year.

If you like them too but find them to much work to care for (like I did with my Venus Fly Traps, poor things: if only I'd known that they need special potting mix) maybe this is more useful for you...

These photos were taken at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Sydney, Australia. The vine they grew on grew very high, climbing up the pillars to the second level in the tropical house.

Creature Mandala Totem

Creature Mandala Totem is an image I created starting with the roots of a Moreton Bay Fig Tree. By the time I had finished messing around with it, it was brimming with life and images that I hadn't at first expected to see.

Creature Totem Mandala also comes in a suprising variety of forms apart from the straight shown above:

Sydney Harbour Bridge

It's impossible living in Sydney not to have a few Harbour Bridge photos. When I first arrived in Sydney, back in 1992, I was stunned at just how amazing it looked. It is hard to capture this in photo-form because it never seems to look quite as marvellous as it does in real life. I hope that I have come close, though.

See HERE for all of my RedBubble Harbour Bridge shots.

Good for a Bridge Game!

Mr Shuffles and Family

Mr Shuffles and Family come in a few different forms:

And yet there are more!

This is little Pathi Harn, orginally nicknamed Mr Shuffles because of his walk. It was thought that he had died in the womb. The elephant obstetrics expert had flown home to Germany but was then summoned back. He said that this rewrites the books! Hence the name Pathi Harn, Thai for Miracle Boy.

And now he does quite well, playing with anything he can get his trunk on. He is living in Taronga Zoo.

This is a little aside from the strictly photographic - unless I win!!

PayBox is a new online and offline payment service currently being built which pays you to be an earlybird member, since they are looking to build up membership before opening.

Anyway, they have a competition to win a $1000 Amazon wish list. My list contains:

(Apparently, not many people have bothered about this aspect of the site.)

I am now up to $1494 since 11th September and am encouraging others here to join up. Of course, I get a $10 referral bonus (up from $5), so I'm really set to benefit. But having looked at a number of sites, many noted here on My Big Experiment.

They also have a $1000 prize for a debit card design. One of mine:

(See, this article does contain photography.)
