A few of my favourite things..

Resist. or get dirty.


This shot, with its imperfect focus, is not .. perfect.  But see that wildly distorted background?  I was hanging out the window of a 4WD while it was bouncing and sliding down a gully on a washed out mud track.  It happened that the butterfly was on the wing beside us, and I couldn’t resist going for a shot.

Have you been four-wheel driving in the mud and wet… with the window down?


Not even if a butterfly keeps pace and you have an irresistible urge to shoot it on the fly.

  7. Samantha, while I will go to some lengths to get a shot, I confess if I’d had the presence of mind to realise what winding the window down would entail (so not aware of my surroundings, sometimes!) I might have thought twice about it.

    Thanks for visiting.
