    Tui tui in the rain.

    I like this one very much, there's a dreamy visual coherence and much detail to intrigue. It would look great printed large I reckon. Especially notable the tui's red eye in relation to the rain-drops genetically modified(!:-)) and plain. I was thinking "beady red eye" but then 'beady' has other connotations, so 'bead-like' red eye instead.

    Which stimulated me to recover this not quite successful image of two bead generations on a tiny 3-d network of spider threads, as the sun came through the fog one morning last week. Those of the larger older bead generation enclose not-quite-sharp-enough refracted images of strings of beads.

    Yesterday morning’s sunshine as if held within a woven gift bowl, framed by grape foliage.

    Closer view, to emphasise the organically geometric design – or is it geometrically organic?

    Later in the morning, kitchen windows being atypically clean after a recent burst of activity on my part, thought to photograph the wider context wherein I first saw this gem, standing at the kitchen sink as one does.

    The grape foliage fitting neatly under the wing of the old grapefruit tree (its name both fitting and unfitting). The distinctiveness in the play of light and shade on the form and texture of each of those grape leaves. Their connecting gaps as positive contributions to the image. And as windows to the beyond …

    In this case including a pair of mallard/grey ducks resting in the shady shelter of the overhanging riverbank at lowish tide – ‘loafing’ the ornithologists’ term, as perhaps I am doing too, gazing through my glass window and the foliage window into a room of their world of secure contentment, on a tidal river in town, a few days into the duck-shooting season.

  • Islander,

    As someone who has very poor sight, a lot of this stuff just makes me go
    "O shit! Time to wash the lenses!"

    He's back. Been away while the street was tarted up. How long before he gets extra decorations again? Funniest I saw was a tasteful handbag over his elbow.

    Not unless it's a much younger Sir Dove-Myer Robinson!

    Nice Jos. Do say hi to your mum (and dad) for me.

    We went picnicking at Clarks Beach today. Nice little place, and only 45 minutes form Auckland.

    I have ridden this route many times and yearned to take this shot (but better); A typical me shot that ended up looking like I'd instagramed it. Hit 82kph on the way down the hill and just made it to the car before dark.
