If you are taking photos from a moving car it can be hard to avoid blurred objects, particularly those close to you. As the light was failing in a typical hazy evening in Jakarta I got lots of fuzzy vechilces but I as left them in this series as the add to the confusion. They convey the darting and erratic traffic better than prefectly exposed images might.
Series of "sunday evening traffic in jakarta" on the way to the airport, for photofriday topic :chaos

I was looking to create a abstract composition of three layers. There is a theory that placing strongs changes (such as the horizon) at the upper or lower third position makes for a more interesting composition. I think it worked.

Late afternoon, central Australia.

I had a lot of difficulty trying to find this on google earth and therefore my geotagged location might not be reliable, going mainly on flight times I'm pretty sure this must be near flinders ranges.

They will be eventually covered in mosaics. The one will be a sea horse and the zero a crab! Thats the plan, but at the moment they are just at the chicken wire covered with hessian and plaster stage.
Its all a bit of a coincidence because the photofriday topic is one
This composite photo was created with picasa collage

You will definitely need to click on this image to see the higher resolution version, to appreciate it.
I have an aolympus camera and it has a panorama mode buiolt it to help you both position the camera and maintain exposure settings during the photography and a simple to use bit of software that helps "automatically" assemble the images into a single picture on your computer. This panorama is based on 8 adhacent "Portrait oriented" (ie long axis vertical) shots

Lihir Island, PNG
Whilst I do have a number of nice purple & violet flower photos, I decided to be a bit more adventureous for my first submission for Photo Friday, a nifty net-based weekly photo challenge. You see a lot of those who had submitted before me had posted flower photos, so I wanted something different and then I remember some lovely delicately coloured dawns back up on lihir.

It seldom snows in Melbourne but there is supposed to be a 40% chance it might. From where I'm sitting it looks like there is a 60% chance it won't. Still it is the perfect time to photograph clouds
The above post was made from my phone. I was hoping to travel down to South Gippsland today but extensive snow down there in the morning was causing extensive road alerts. Because I could, as well as looking out the window at the sunshine, I also checked out the weather in more details on-line. And stayed home,
If you live in Australia you can check the lastest weather details at the excellent Bureau Of Meterology Website, including live radar and satellite imagery (as above)

Starting with my original photo
I cropped it a little
then i used the cloning tool to "cover" up the bit of the beak on the righthand side and completetely hide the swamp hen in the forground. If you click on the image to see the larger version you might be able to see the little sections of the image that have been duplicated over the swamp hen. Note I used a few different parts and overlayed the texture to look natural.

Swamp Hen struts his stuff
PS I do have a further 3X digital zoom, but i have found camera shake so hard to avoid, as well as lower quality of digital zoomed images have discouraged me from using digital zoom much.

Sometimes deep in the shade you will find that your automatic digital camera suddenly sets of the flash. This is unfortunate as it will wash out the lovely lighting and you may do much better looking at the little pools of light as available light (or nightscene setting). You can get beautifully rich colours this way.

And the little hello icon with the green arrow in internet explorer tools, has the ability to create a link to a web page as well as taking a snap shot of it.
PS I used all three features to create this image. Can you figure out how?

Blogging directly from your mobile phone, is now available on blogger, but only in the USA. So how an I doing this from Australia?
PS: Well I have a Flickr photostream, and flicker will let you email in photos using a ""secret email address", more importantly you also get another address, it has "2blog" at the end of the secret AddressName. I have an telstra I-mode phone, so I can send emails from it. When you email the special flickr address, its a long address so I had already stored it in my phones address book, the photo is posted and then a blog entry constructed. Using the subject line of your email as the title, and the text you send in the email as the body of the post and the photo is posted according to the default format you have set up in Flickr.
Well it worked but there where a few hickups
- Telstra only lets you email 1kb as an attachment in I-mode emails
- So I had to reduce the image size to "email size", unfortunately it put the image in a 90 degree rotation & portrait mode
- The typing of the text is a bit tedious (or it it just me)
And finally this is the actual phone photo @ 1.3 mega pixels,(you'll defintely need to click on it to see the difference in detail.)
