Some Late August Colours...

















Can't believe the students are back tomorrow, and another academic year begins. Here's to the final summer of the first decade of the not-so-new millenium. Whilst I didn't get to go away this summer, but I did appreciate the sun, oh-so-very-much. It had been one of the nicest Irish summers in living memory (perhaps as belated compensation for the dreadful winter and so-called spring we had). I'm glad I stayed, even if I had not had much choice in the matter, for this summer has already marked one of my many firsts when it comes to letting my creativity blossom, like in the colourful photos above (thank you Nikon Coolpix for being a handy point-and-shoot until such time as I could pick up your heftier cousin again, or I wouldn't have been able to capture that pretty butterfly otherwise). And as autumn comes, I would be even gladder to have completed one of my important milestones in my life thus far... :)

I have to check on the orchards, see if the apples are ready or not. Those on your picture look pretty ready.

Lady, what's holding you back using the DSLR? Is it too big too inconvenient?

Belated happy new year to you LCL and Blue! Hope you're all keeping warm and toasty despite the wintry weather. Thanks so much for visiting my humble blog in the past year and all your very kind comments.

LCL: These are apple trees planted by people in their front gardens, so unfortunately I could only 望"蘋"止渴 :)

It's a long story re: my DSLR involving my own stupidity and negligence... will blog about that some other day.

Blue: Thanks! Some passerby actually thought I was weirdly photographing the ground for no apparent reason until he realised what I was taking picture of and apologised for scaring the butterfly away!
