Sunday Stills: Orange

This week the prompt from Ed was orange.  It is not really a colour that I gravitate to.  I don’t know why.  So I thought I would have some trouble finding some orange photos.  Then I had my doh moment.  I remembered I had taken these photos the other day.

These were all taken in my garden.

We have two big orange trees in our garden loaded down with fruit.  So that means that we have a lot of fallen fruit.  I got my son to mow the lawns so my daughter had to pick up the fallen oranges.  She then lined them up on the deck.

So here are my orange photos.

Phoneography Challenge: Black and White Ferns

Good morning from a grey looking Hastings.

It is time for Sally’s challenge for our non–SLR devices again.

It was interesting to see the new camera specs for the IPhone 6 and 6 Plus last week.  The IPhone 6Plus looks like it could be a mini SLR camera which should be good.  We don’t always have our large cameras with us, but we usually have cellphones on us.

Anyway I have gone for a New Zealand theme today.  The All Blacks won against South Africa last Saturday night in a tight rugby match.  So I thought it would be appropriate to show some ferns in black and white.  These photos were taken in the native bush at Cornwall Park earlier this year.
