"I want to be where the Sun warms the sky

When it's time for siesta you can watch them go by

Beautiful faces, no cares in this World

Where a girl loves a boy, and a boy loves a girl...

Tropical the island breeze

All of nature wild and free

This is where I long to be ...

Warm wind carried on the sea

I prayed that the days would last

They went so fast... "

  

I'm glad to tell that "I want to be where the Sun warms the sky!" was selected by Flickr to be 1 of the 20 featured in their "Flickr333" 3rd anniversary benefit auction! It was printed, matted and framed for the auction that took place on March 3, 2007 @ Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, 701 Mission Street (San Francisco, CA) 6-9 PM.

All proceeds from this auction will be donated to

KIDS WITH CAMERAS!!!

You know Winter is just about to start when the temperature drops, the wind picks up and the streets start shimmering as the puddles start forming. It really is beautiful. It's just a bugger that you can never really be prepared for it.

 

My most "interesting" shot.

 

Also my ‘Masterpiece’ entry for Photo Friday.

 

Prints of this image are available for purchase from my Redbubble site :-)

Oh I used to be disgusted, and now I try to be amused.

But since their wings have got rusted,

you know, the angels wanna wear my red shoes.

 

Best comment from Donny O'Smokem.

Update: This image was chosen by the folks at flickr as one of 20 images to be sold to benefit Kids With Cameras, in honor of flickr's third anniversary (Flickr 333).

Well i noticed on the Flickrblog that in honour of the website's third birthday happening on March 3rd (ALSO MY OWN BIRTHDAY) they are having a auction to celebrate and to raise money to eliminate TBA. As a fan of Arrested Development I am happy to see that someone else has decided to step up and stop TBA.

 

I decided to submit this image. Altered to fit their 3 theme and since it was taken in San Francisco then all the better.

 

Here's to their birthday... my birthday... and hopefully the end of TBA.

'Kaboom' on black is much nicer of course.

 

For a long while I have been wanting to make a shot of lightning, but never managed to do so (the lightning was too far off, I was busy doing other things, didn't have my camera on me or did have my camera but no tripod etc.).

 

This evening I heard the thunder while I was at home and decided to drive to the beach, where I spent almost an hour under the luggage lid of my car to stay dry, wondering if I would feel something if I would be hit by it or how big the zone of destruction would be if the tower in front of me would be hit for example. I also found myself trying to recall the statistics about how many people get killed by lightning every year. You know, happy thoughts. Therapeutical thoughts. Even so, I managed to make some nice shots, although this one was the most spectacular IMO.

From our visit at my mom's on Saturday. These are on her dining room table and are from one of her plants outside. Can someone tell me what they are. I know they are a common flower but, i'm just not a flower kinda girl.

 

Was playing with curves, levels, and exposure. At frist I was going to post this more "real" to what it looked like, exposure and color wise but ended up with this and liked it.

Koi fish go crazy while I feed them at a Bonsai park on Jeju Island, South Korea.

Flickr Explore 15th January 2007

I felt proud when I saw that this image was used by Flickr as the lead picture to illustrate the Flickr333 party on their news blog. This has made it my most viewed picture on Flickr to date by a long shot - already 1100+ views. For a flickerite for whom 30 views for a picture is more normal this is a big deal even though I know the A-list flickrists get 1k views per picture and much more on a regular basis.

 

I was happy with how this picture came out, taken with my new Rebel and the bargain 50mm f1.8 'standard' lens. I was happy because 'documentary' is not my usual style (as regular visitors will know already, I have obsessions with the static - parked cars, bridges, etc.). I was happy because the room was filled with hundreds of photographers with high-end equipment all snapping away and then posting to flickr and yet this image got chosen to be featured. As I said, it's not a big deal but it's little moments like this that make you think 'I must be doing something right' and I will embrace them when I can as fuel to get through the more usual rejections.

Taken at the Japanese Gardens in Forth Worth, Texas. I love the fall there!
