Living with Nature

Archives

From the archives Many years ago, I used to use Picasa software to make collages or Birthday Cards.  I no longer have this software and this morning I discovered its no longer available.  The collage above is one of many I made in the early days of my Photography hobby.   Enjoy………….. 

I think I mentioned to a commenter/new follower recently that I had deleted most of the 4000 images I made when living in Abbotsford on the north-east side of Melbourne (including all the corresponding WordPress posts to make room on this blog and reduce my massive Photo Library on my Mac Pro laptop).  I did keep all the sunrise/sunset images and about 30 other images of the walking trail to Dights Falls… Read More

While the first month of winter – June – is nearly over, we’ve had surprisingly little rain so far in Melbourne.  It’s been mainly light showers in the western suburbs (where I live) for this last week, but enough to stall my efforts to get outdoors for some walking and fresh air (and/or nature photography).

After 6 months of living in the western suburbs of Melbourne, I finally got around to visiting Footscray Park yesterday afternoon. I had previously dismissed this park as being of minimal interest (when passing by on the bus route).  But yesterday, there were still a few flowers in bloom at this time of Autumn.  It’s not a place I’d go to again, except maybe next Spring.  After all the years of walking… Read More
