RIP Karta

If you are a regular reader of my blog, then you would know I love going to the Adelaide Zoo and taking photos :)

Sadly, one of the loved animals at the Zoo has passed away - Karta, the 34 year old Sumatran Orangutan, has died just hours after delivering an infant that was believed to be stillborn.

How sad :(

Here is the last photo I took of Karta, on 3rd June 2016

This is Puspa, the other Orangutan they alternate in the enclosure

Lotus Flower

FLORAL FRIDAY FOTO: 270
Lotus Flower - a very beautiful flower, with much symbolism


Lotus Flower Standing Tall
This flower was actually head height - I know I am not tall, but the stems on these flowers were magnificent!

This was another one that was almost head height - I didn't quite capture just how glistening the water droplets were :)

Images on the wall

Have you ever wondered whether you should get one of your images printed and put it up on the wall?

Well I have, and even though printing is readily available - it can come at a cost and what if you don't like it once you see it big?

Well, I came across some free stuff the other day, and I think it could help in deciding whether or not you want to get something printed large or not :)

I do a bit of graphic stuff with my cardmaking, and I follow Creative Market - a design resource website.  There are heaps of things available, and the good part is there is some great FREE stuff too :)

Currently, one of the FREE selections is this Frames and poster mock-up pack

I had a play, and this is what I came up with


This is one of my images that did well in my camera club competitions and I wondered whether to print it up large and put it on the wall - what do you think?

If your New Year's Resolution is to get out and about and take more photos ... do it!

If you have been thinking about doing something with your photography, then maybe consider joining a club!

The 2017 Port Adelaide Camera Club Calendar has been put on the PACC website - I am getting quite excited, we have a great year ahead.
