Fig Tree

Fig Tree

Todays image from my Lomonisity series.

Lomonisity, I made that word up, do you think it might catch on?
Seems rather a strange thing to do, turn an image taken with a Pro lens on the end of a semi pro camera into a picture resembling that taken on a Russian Lomo camera.
I love the effect and one day hope to get a Lomo camera myself.

But for the moment I have to be content with a Lightroom preset.

The huge Fig tree in the picture is located on a Cattle Station in Far North Queensland.
I just love the way that the bottom branches appear to have been expertly trimmed. They are almost dead straight.

Capability Brown? I don’t think so!

The Gardener(s) in question were hungry Brahman cattle!

Go well go-Shell

Go well go-Shell

A box of slides.
Yesterdays memories cast aside all but forgotten, rescued just in time from the heat and dust of an Australian tin shed.
Its the year of the megapixel, but wait film is making a comeback.
Did it ever go away Pixel peepers?

Memory rewind.

Blue Skies, an Australia summer, stifled heat. Load the car.
Hot vinyl seats burn the skin, sit on a towel.
Cricket on the radio, England 432 for 1 !!
In your dreams.

Grab the Pentax, a roll of Kodachrome.
A Sunday afternoon drive to escape the rat race of Sydney.
Afternoon tea and fill er up please.

Go well go-Shell.
