THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: "A good photograph is knowing where to stand" (US photographer, Ansel Adams

As I have mentioned before, it gives me such a buzz when my words or my images touch people in some way. Maybe make their life a little bit better somehow. Last weekend a lady visiting from Singapore bought one of our pegframes that contained four images of water and piers. All the images were taken near where I live, along the beautiful Noosa River (Queensland). She said she had quit her job to take the holiday to Australia to visit a friend, that she wanted a new start and that the images were a message to her to look forward. I hadn't looked at them like that until she shared her feelings. Thank you.
On the cruise ship of life, does your deckchair point to where you are going or where you have been?

NOT SO STILL LIFE: I decided to try a bit of still life photography (oh for a macro lens)so collected a pile of these orange fruits that fall from our palm tree and muck up the front lawn. I quite like this shot - it looks like they are just waking to the dawn, almost like quivering little chickens about to hatch. I feel like I should almost give each a name. I'm not sharing the other still life efforts yet, but for other images of mine please visit Would love your comments.
