One A Day 220:365 Composition with bottle tops wood and berries.

220:365 Composition with bottle tops wood and berries. All stuff found in Coogee. I had a yellow round thing too but chose to take it away from the group. Often it's about what you leave out as much as what you keep in.

Red and blue and white/But not yellow. That’s because/Less is more. Always.

One A Day 208:365 Composition with discarded furniture.

208:365 Composition with discarded furniture. These giant pencils were the legs of some kids table once. They've been out in the weather on the side of the road this past month and I've walked past them at least 20 times without really properly noticing. Today for some reason I saw the potential in that nice dirty white curve of the old cupboard and the jauntiness of the primary colours. It's probably the rain that has brought all the contrasts to life. This was the first shot I took but I carried the pencil legs with me for an hour trying them in different locations in the bush, on piles of logs, stuck in fences all sorts. But in the end came back to this very first shot - often the way, I find.

One A Day 102:365 Composition with bluegreen wall and unidentified dead flowers.

102:365 Composition with bluegreen wall and unidentified dead flowers. Walking around Hong Kong I discovered a slightly down at heel but active mosque painted this lovely minty green and tinged with the greyish green mound that grows all over this damp town. I arranged a few bits of foliage around the curved wall and went on my way.

Walking around the bustling centre of Hong Kong and travelling up the outside escalator that takes you higher and higher up the steep hill, I noticed a slightly down at heel but active mosque painted this lovely minty green and tinged with the greyish green mound that grows all over this damp town. I arranged a few bits of foliage around the curved wall and went on my way.

One A Day 101:365 Composition with exotic red flower petals and tree trunk.

101:365 Composition with exotic red flower petals and tree trunk. Looks like I could be back in Blackheath from this shot but in fact the tree was tropical and vine like and the flower felt like fairy floss. Altogether quite different. Red is lucky in this town so I thought for my first post red was just right.

One A Day 81:365 Composition with fading native hibiscus, pruned palm tree leaf and pavement cracks.

81:365 Composition with fading native hibiscus, pruned palm tree leaf and pavement cracks. All a little damp still on the ground from recent rain and that means the cracks in the pathway and the tones of the flowers show up in all their glory.  Love the rusty against the grey. This little group didn't last long. The wind took it moments after.

One A Day 71:365 Composition with dried agapanthus and kerb stone.

71:365 Composition with dried agapanthus and kerb stone. Today finds me seeking shade with the dog in the hot car park of Penrith Bunnings warehouse whilst @cannylass67 gets some paint matched. We are going for a lovely colour called seed pod and another called indigo. Should look very smart.

Today finds me seeking shade with the dog in the hot car park of Penrith Bunnings warehouse whilst Panda gets some paint matched. We are going for a lovely colour called seed pod and another called indigo. Should look very smart and very appropriate.

We have been renovating the Coogee flat.

Over the past few months @cannylass67 has been renovating the kitchen and dining room of our little Coogee flat -  place I bought back in 1997.that hasn't been fixed up for more than 15 years. Over the weekend she painted  the floor in blue and white stripes. Adorable. So I stole some flowers from the bushes on the way back from the beach to say thank you for all her hard work.
