    I went out and took some photos yesterday partly with this week's challenge in mind and spent some time trying to decide which one to submit. I eventually submitted one and so here are the leftovers which, you know, I kinda like.

    Cloud Imitating Tree:
    6820109101_1b0c2f9f68_z.

    Looks like some vortex activity going on up there, makes for some dramatic cloud shapes:


    BB says this reminds her of Georgia O'Keeffe. Come to think of it, there is something Dali-esque about this. I can picture a floppy melting clock-face draped over the branches:

    Some sun flare goodness:

    An Australian Summer Landscape:
    6816094865_5a1651216a_z.

    A B&W version of the photo I submitted for the WC which I really like too:
    6815932631_0532b17525_z.

    A quirky piece of deadwood which I thought was an animal skull from afar:
    6815965829_31afc8b405_z.

    This one reminds me of an opening scene from a 1950s B&W horror B grade film, something very 'Addams Family' about it (even though I always liked The Munsters much more):

    Uncropped colour version of the above image looking less dark and gothic:
    6821566927_8c6f619f4b_z.

    BB said this looks very sci-fi, I like that. I thought it looked like an ancient deteriorated monument just recently discovered again:

    Thanks Karen. There is something minimalist and frameable about that photo, when I get around to printing some of my photos that is.
