That’s what Batman said anyway. A colony of bats make their nightly hunt for moths in the floodlights. This is several photos edited together. Advertisements Continue reading They’re Great Survivors
First post in over a month, my mojo has gone! Recently I purchased a little point and shoot Canon that’s been converted to infrared. I didn’t get much information on the conversion, it does do a nice black and white though. Liking the photograph of the trees, looks almost impregnable.

Consider this a … Continue reading Through the Rokkor Eye
A quick wee walk around the local woodland to fire off some shots. Not what I had in mind for this weekend but leaving vital supplies in work chucked a spanner in the planned efforts. First images I’ve edited on a Mac my old Windows set up is more than likely over. I can now import direct to Flickr again without having to drag and … Continue reading Black Woods
If I’d known then what I know now I’d have gotten all the bees in the image. This is a plaque on the bottom of the Ferdinando I statue in the piazza Santissima Annunziata, Florence. The circle of bees facing the queen represent the industrious Florentines ruled by the grand duke. Apparently local legend says it’s impossible to count the bees using only your eyes, … Continue reading Stumble Bumble
