This is my submission for Photo Friday – Silhouette.
It was taken in Rome near the Coliseum.
Next time I shall actually post the link to the Photo Friday site. D’oh!
Well, this is my favourite photo of all I took in 2004.
I was very lucky, there were actually quite a lot of people wandering around, but I saw this lone figure in contemplation and quickly took the photo. Two seconds later a group of people wandered into view and the moment was lost.
This is the return journey of a Yellow Eyed Penguin after it has been out to sea.
I took this photo in New Zealand last November.
At that time the penguins were raising their young and both parents take it in turns to go out to sea and feed.
This is a journey this penguin will make several times a day at this time of year.

Some M&Ms that just fell out of the packet in this arrangement.
All I had to do was press the shutter button.
Photo Friday‘s challenge this week was Clean.
I decided to take a close-up photo of a soap bubble as I seem to be going through a close-up photography phase.
It’s not perfect but I left it until the last minute so it’ll have to do.
Water and cameras don’t mix. But I was careful and nothing untoward happened.
This one throws a lot of people so I thought it might be a good one to submit.
I took it on a beach in New Zealand, there was a corner of the beach that had pure black sand.
I concentrated on this detail and the yellow leaf offsets the sand perfectly I think.
