Colour, light and texture

There is no single title one can give a blog post such as this ones there are fragments from so many directions, themes and times.

Fiona and I were down the back of the block last Thursday picking the last of our small mango crop. I had been smart enough to take the iPhone with me as I knew I'd want to capture a couple of shots of the disintegrating organ that sits between the mango trees. The keys are doing a grand job collecting leaves.

When we were in Toowoomba over the weekend I took quite a few shots of texture and colour -

 There are always stray blossoms etc that capture the eye on my walk - sometimes because of the contrast of colour with light; and sometimes because of the unusual location of the object.

And the valley and hills to the south regularly deliver such differing light offerings.
