One of the things that blogging gives you is a tiny glimpse into the lives of other people - and one of the things that I enjoy most is see what other people are up to in different seasons to the one I am in.
It still surprises me the number of 'I'd forgotten it was not winter with you' type comments from the Northern Hemisphere!
Anyway - these two images are a result of me thinking about these differences and similarities.
The first image is taken indoors - where I assume the state of our loving room is very similar to many in other parts of the world. I also decided to play with zooming during a long exposure - and the chaos and confusion seems appropriate for Christmas! And before anybody asks, the blurred vision is nothing to do with red wine or fine Tasmanian malt whiskey (honest!)
The second picture is about summer - not the bright blue sky, the cricket on the radio nor sandy days at the beach. Its about the background hum of insects - the white noise of summer.
While me and H were taking a bit of a walk - all 850m of it! - we found this bee swarm in a bird box. I can only assume that there were no birds in it!
