the refinery by tff

This photograph appeared in my other blog back in February 2009. I was contacted by an Australian publisher who wanted to use it in a school text book. We negotiated a deal.

I just checked and the book has been published; my photograph is in it. Hooray!

It's on page 222, in a section about "Urbanisation", if you care to walk into a book store and take a look :-)

I know the photo is no work of art, but the lesson is to present every image to its best effect by making sure that it is sharp, the horizon is straight and that tone and contrast suit the subject.

jacaranda in flower by tff

Grey skies and light rain have saturated the colours of the grass and the flowers on the jacaranda trees - soon the grass will have a jacaranda blue carpet. Once the jacarandas bloom, exam time is close!

bloom by tff

The very delicate pastel colour of this flower was well worth recording.

rhine by tff

This photo was taken in 1986 from a cruise boat on the Rhine. I saw an advertisement for European cruises on television recently, and it still looks the same! I suppose I shouldn't be surprised - it probably hasn't changed in centuries.
