Jing Jing

A cat is more than
An animal or a pet;
A cat is a friend

I stayed in Sydney for a few days recently and took this photo of my friend’s cat Jing Jing while I was there. Jing Jing is very mischievous and playful and I like how the image captured that. I thought I’d edit it to look more like a painting as well to give it a bit of a timeless feel. It came out well in the end.

Black Swans on the Lake

Swans on the Lake

Black swans on the water
A warm sun and gentle breeze
On my face:
Peace

I took this a couple of days ago down by the Belmont lakefront. It had been a lovely warm day and the light was beautiful as the sun started to go down.

I was lucky enough to be there just as these swans came into view and I took a quick shot. We get quite a lot of black swans around Belmont and I always enjoy stopping to watch them for a minute or two. They’re so graceful – and make excellent subjects too.
