Tuesday’s Bit and Bobs
Again, I’ve been busy, but not a lot has been happening. Funny how some weeks can be like that. I am trying to get things put into place for next year, but don’t have a lot to report at this time.
ONE FOUR CHALLENGE – NOV WK 4
There are lots of people doing their final image for Robyn’s One Four Challenge again. It was the final week, and I found the hardest. It seemed easy to come up with three things, but four, well it did take me a bit to work out what to do. I played with things, deleted things, in the end I wasn’t so sure, but if you would like to see the image I came up with, and the others I have done as well, then you will need to go to this post, One Four Challenge November Week 4.
I just need to let people know too, that you can comment on it, and while it doesn’t look like anything happens when you do, it does. I get all the comments, though I haven’t had time to approve and respond to them yet. I don’t know why that blog is so weird to leave comments on. I will have to get onto the developers and see what they can work out.
Don’t forget to go to Robyn’s Robyn’s One Four Challenge and check out all the other great images, there are pingbacks there you can click. She has also has instructions for next month as well, so if you missed out on the challenge for this month, then you can participate next month.
Last week I showed you the before and after of the image I had done for Stacy’s After-Before Friday, and the link I gave at the time of the post was quite right, but Stacy sent me the correct link, and I thought it would be good to give it to you again. You can go there and see what others have done, as well as get instructions if you want to do it try it too.
I have to attend grant presentation this week to get the money for my grant. I hate going out in public like this, getting up in front of people, I hope there won’t be too many people there. We have to go up and shake a councilors hand and they hand us a cheque. I think the cheque is fake, because my understanding is the money will be deposited into the bank. The best part is that it means I will get the grant money, so I can start the project in earnest, but also I can get my own macro lens.
Tourism in Victoria
I had had enough yesterday and finally got around to sending a feedback email to Tourism Victoria. I have sent them so many emails about posts that I have done about Melbourne and Victoria, and have never received a reply. No acknowledgement at all. I don’t really expect much, but is it too much to expect a reply for your email. I love taking photos of where I live, and I love sharing them with you all, and I had hoped that it helped people to see what a beautiful country I do actually live in. I did get a response this time, but it was for the add that I have on their website, that I paid money for and has never got me any work. I just can’t believe they don’t have a page somewhere where you can register things like websites or blogs that have information on places to visit or information, photos, something, but you have to have an event. It seems crazy to me.
The final excursions for Thursday and Sunday are coming up. I’m looking forward to these. We are going into the city to photography the Christmas decorations. We will get there before dark and see it in daylight and then we will stick around until the sun goes down so we can take photos of the Christmas lights. Should be fun, if you want to come along with us, then go to Thursday’s Excursion, or Sunday’s Excursion.
There isn’t much more going on really. I did go out last week and take some photos of birds. I don’t think I am very good at bird photography, but I do have a few photos for you. There weren’t many birds around, but I managed to see some Tawny Frogmouths, and some Butcher birds, I think they are called. I thought I would share those photos with you here. Oh I want to say the one hanging upside down is a Minor bird, think it is called, apparently pests and do a lot of destruction to the native birds, and most people don’t photograph them, but it was hanging upside down, I had to get a couple of shots. I hope you have lots going on right now too.
