Four years on -March 2012

What better way to celebrate a four year anniversary for the blog than to spend a few minutes staring into the setting sun!

Looking towards Golden Beach and wondering how it got its name, I also wonder how it is that I've actually managed to post a photo each day for the past four years.

This is the one thousand four hundred and sixty-third photo posted on this site!  Doesn't time fly when one is having fun!

This seems like a pretty good time to pause and thank all those who visit and comment.  Your comments are greatly appreciated.

My favourite things - February 2012

A few things have changed since this photo was taken.  Sunrise Beach is no longer part of the Sunshine Coast, and our friend Trevor (in the blue hat) finished his holiday and went back to live happily ever after in the UK, with no risk of being eaten by sharks or stung by spiders.  Hi Trev!

I think of all the laneways in all the cities in the world that I have walked, the ones that lead to the beach through a stand of casuarinas are my favourites.

Thinking - January 2012

I'm thinking if I worked on it, I could quite possibly capture some really nice shots of animals.  Perhaps I will.

A cormorant in a pensive mood.

Wondering whether he is sticking out enough I suppose.

Confusion - December 2011

I know how he feels. I've been searching for a direction for this blog since beginning this retrospective, and I think I'm paddling against the swell!   Ahh well - six years to go!

I'm not sure what it's called when a surfer uses one foot to kick himself along in the opposite direction to the waves.

I think it's called a trick of the light.

The Edge of Town - November 2011

Although there are something like 30,000 households planned in among all those trees, I suspect that there will still be a lot of open space into the foreseeable future.   Perhaps it would be nicer if we started to build up, rather than out.

I am standing on the ridge behind Caloundra's CBD, facing south west.   The buildings are close enough to the main street not to argue.

We have a LOT of open space around us.

Jet lag symptoms - October 2011

How well I remember this photo.   We'd arrived back from the norther hemisphere the day before.  In my jetlagged state I'd misread the clock and wandered off to the beach an hour earlier than I intended.   I really should do that more often.

If one rises early enough, the first glimpse of that patch of electric blue as one ascends the dune is enough to set one's heart a flutter.

The Quest Continues - September 2011

We didn't get the classic car, but the lattice panels are now installed in abundance.

A classic car with matching lattice perhaps.
