Dish

Not everyone enjoys a five course meal on Noritaki China. The dish might be far more humble but a necessity in life in order to survive.

Day 16.

Ah bless. I’m always a soft touch for the under dog. She’s been abandoned by the homeless who have been offered a bed and three meals a day during the lock down. Most had dogs but I don’t think they were invited. She’s starving and has terrible rope marks on her neck. This is the third day she has appealed to me . She has food in her belly since I met her but we live on a small boat and I have a flock of chickens to feed. I will do my best.

Day 8: “Treasure” — Zoom In


The Instructions

Get close to your subject. Use the zoom function in your camera, or physically move closer to it. Often, our goal is to capture as much of a scene as we can. This time, zoom in on your subject or a particular detail to tell a more interesting story.


Today I bought a couple of tickets from the Maison de la Culture in Papeete for the 2018 FIFO International Film Festival. Walking back through the Paofai Park to the marina, I came across one of nature’s little treasures.

We have had wet but warm weather for a number of days now. The combination has given rise to the growth of fungi.

I thought this fungi was rather delightful and deserved to be captured in a photograph. Kneeling down in the moist grass, I zoomed in to take this shot.

Fungi growing in the park

I also took an above shot, of another fungi. It was difficult to recognise it as such but I thought it a rather fun photo.

Looking down at this little treasure.

Another treasure was this Golden Trumpet Allamanda Cathartica.

The flower has bright yellow petals with a gold centre The leaves are green and glossy.

I was trying to capture the rain drops.

I need to practice close up shots because I didn’t think I captured the vibrance of this image.
