Having just seen Noel's excellent photo in colour of a beech avenue, and now having seen yours, I feel very lucky to have seen two sides of such a fascinating subject. Here the B&E has really accentuated the dappled light and textures of the trees. There is a wonderful symmetry and depth here and I like the white vignette you have applied to the photo, giving us a sense of timelessness and just how ancient these magnificent trees are.
Hugs to you and G
PS: Sorry I've been AWOL lately. Mum unwell again but improving slowly and work going crazy. Hope to see you here this year???

Oooh mi piacciono molto le foto dei mercati. Specialmente quelli italiani. Hai catturato bene l' essenza di essendo italiano qui. Un amore del buon cibo e buona vita. Ottima la struttura e gestione di luci.
PS; Grazie delle tue belle parole per la mia mamma. Sta migliorando pian piano. Un abbraccio da lei anche

An every day photo that, due to your good eye and skill, is quite extraordinary. U like the textures, the graphism, the reflections and the almost monochrome quality to the image. In fact, I think it would be even more compelling in Black & White.

Well I'm not a lover of modern architecture at the best of times, but when I hear that a historic LIBRARY ahs been destroyed to make way for it, I'm even snarkier than usual. A great shot, beautiful graphism and perspective, but a photo that makes me very sad for the fact that we don't seem to cherish what has gone before us. Excellent note that has given me pause for thought.

Gidday dear Ann
What a great shot, almost abstract. And the icy blues and stark whites certainly convey the Brass Monkeys weather. I like the inclusion of the fence and the panoramic format. The visibility beyond the fence is virtually non existent, again emphasising the harsh conditions in which you were operating. Well done.
Sorry I've been AWOL, Mum not well again, but hopefully on the mend.

Ciao caro Klaudio
A very compelling shot, one that make me want to go and fire up the Mokka! I love the low light, the play of shadow and the wonderful textures. Oooh I can almost smell it! And what a great touch with the old tea spoon, my Nan used to collect ones like that and have them on her wall. Love your note about an Australia without Italians. Dad was just telling me that when he arrived, you could only buy oil in the chemist to cook with. Everyone was using lard! Ooky!
Hope you're well, sorry I've been AWOL, Mum not well again and work is crazy. Also I've been camping at the Tent Embassy in Redfern a lot lately, so am not at home much :)

Wow they really do have a noticeable Autumn here - unlike Australia! Beautiful colours, lovely play of light and dappled shade and superb light control. A delightful photo.
Cheers, hope you're well. Mum not well so I've been away from TE

Ciao dear Abmdsudi
Such a stunning and unforgettable photo. You did so well here, at a distance like that. The gold water and red of the little boys' costume make a wonderful contrast. I love how you composed their group slightly off-centre, also using the boat cleverly to draw the eye towards the centre. The little guys curiously shielding their eyes form the sun to look at you, are a very endearing part of the image. Wonderful work.
PS: Sorry I've been away from TE, Mum unwell again and work is crazy. No time for photos of TE. But I hope that will change soon

What a little cutie. We have a very tame one living here (with his girlfriend) whom we call Pemulwuy. I love the sharpness here, capturing all the amazing textures of the Kooka and also that of the bark on the gum tree. The colours are wonderfully natural, so Australian, as is the light. Even in miniature, before I could see exactly the type of bird we had here, I knew it was Aussie. Excellent depth of field too. Well done.
Sorry been AWOL, Mum unwell again

Ciao dear Brian
Sorry for being AWOL, Mum hasn't been well again and work has been crazy. But I hope to be a bit more present.
I love this one. It's made me go cross-eyed which is always a good thing. The B7W is perfect and I adore the luminosity in the reflections, the contrast and the levels of saturation. The graphism is impeccable, as is the sky and the diagonal lines cause the eye to be drawn further into the photo. Well done.
