This family tree, is approximately 20ft high, placed on a corner of two streets, outside a small group shops. It is a memorial tree to the Pavlovich family that have owned the group of shops since 1945. Originally a fruit & Veg shop, run by Mrs. Pav & commonly known as Pav’s Store, but over the years the group of shops have taken on many different identities, deli, Tattoo parlour, take away food, flower store and many more. The main general store is still going strong today, to the delight of everyone who lives nearby.
Last night we had quite an amazing sky (followed by an also amazing thunder & lightning storm) Around 6.30pm I walked outside to see these stunning clouds, so of course I had to get my camera and try to capture a couple of photos. The colour and formation was amazing.
Taking black & white photos is my great love, but I also like Sepia.
I am using a Nikon P900 camera (& I love it) but using the nostalgic sepia setting, I find the my photos are never in focus. 2 of these photos have been taken with this setting and the other 2 have been altered to sepia using a photo altering programme. As you can see the altered photos are a lot clearer & more in focus.
So, I would love some constructive input as to what I’m doing wrong, please. As I would love to be able to use this sepia setting more.
Thanks in advance.
Often known as a “poor man’s rose”, the lisianthus is a truly beautiful flower for cutting and for garden appeal. As an annual, lisianthus blooms just one season, although some gardeners in very warm climates have had success in coaxing annuals to bloom again. Experiment, if you live in a warm area, and you may get several seasons of beautiful blooms!
Lisianthus comes in a wide variety of colours, although purple, pink and white are the most common. Stunning varieties which include colour borders are readily available; these make striking bouquets or focal points for your garden. This compact flower (plants range from 15 to 70 centimetres) looks very much like a rose, although some varieties are distinctly different. Leaves are elongated, somewhat resembling those of a tulip.
Whilst in Fremantle recently, we found this lovely hill of ice, so of course children will be children and had to climb it, sit on it and move it to a nearby bench to sit on it again. such fun.
Fremantle, Perth, Western Australia, is such a wonderful place, so much history and always so much to see. It also has some absolutely wonderful places to eat. I don’t get there so often now, but when I do, I can’t help but be amazed at everything and everyone there.
