NIGHT TOUR WOYLIE WALK WHITMAN PARK

28/4/2017 – AOA Event Whitman Park Woodland Reserve

This involved a night walk through the park, a good opportunity to photograph native animals in the dark.  Above is a sugar glider.

The brush-tailed bettong, also known as the woylie, an extremely rare small marsupial that belongs to the genus Bettongia. It is endemic to Australia.  Because much of its habitat has been destroyed, they are quite difficult to see these days.

The southern brown bandicoot (Isoodon obesulus) is a short nosed bandicoot, a type of marsupial found mostly in southern Australia. It is also known as the quenda in South Western Australia.

 Another woylie looking for food.

A grey kangaroo getting into the picture.

The sugar gliders do not want to miss out.

Some of our members after the night walk.  Obviously, food was put down to feed the animals, and they are kept within vermin proof fences so that they are safe, so it isn’t quite the bush, but at least they are protected and many are breeding.

FREMANTLE INTERNATIONAL STREET ARTS FESTIVAL

31/3/2017 – With Lizzie Martin

The historic streets of Fremantle burst to life as performers transform the city into a world stage every Easter.  A great opportunity for me to test out my iphone 6 camera.

I didn’t get this performer’s name, but he was an amazing artist.

Quatuor Stomp – acrobatics, juggling, fire or a crazy act of daring.   This one of a kind performance is a game of chance where the roll of a dice determines which acts will be part of the show.

Impressed at how well the camera captured this action shot.

Just had to get a photo of this wonderful van, just what Linda needs!  Everything on tap.

Another performer strutting his stuff.

Fraser Hooper from New Zealand.   This guy was so funny, he never spoke a word, yet got people from the audience to join him and do wacky things for him. This little girl pretends to be a fish, goes in the pond, and swims around in it.

Here he is trying to catch her, it was hilarious, there is even a duck close by.  It was his expressions and exasperation at the audience that was so funny.

WEDNESDAY NIGHT WALK

1/3/2017 – Action Outdoors Association Weekly Walk

Having decided that I have to get really fit for my November Cape to Cape walk, I thought I would try to attend AOA’s weekly walks of about 10kms. 

While on the walk, the clouds built up and presented a perfect photo opportunity, along with the newly blonde hair (that won’t last long).

Here are the clouds coming, later in the evening amazing lightning bolts threw down to earth, but of course I was well out of the way by then.  That’s all.

SCULPTURES BY THE SEA part 4, COTTESLOE 2017

18/3/2017 – Even More Outside Sculptures

PLASTIC PARADISE

In the far right background, is an enourmous can.  Hold that thought.

CANSUMERISM

How to make a little home out of a giant can.

VESSELS

Look in the background just to the right of centre, you can see ‘Pause’ from part 2, but you are looking straight through it, not side on.

NARRATION OF THE SEA

INFRASTRUCTURE 5

I love this one, sort of an old fashioned boat, with loose building blocks so children can make things on and around it.  Their absorption in the project speaks volumes.

A close up of the two children who are rearranging some of the blocks.

HORIZON

You can see Cheryl standing behind this exhibit, or at least you can see her shorts.

DRAWING ON THE GROUND

And again the container ships in the background.

UNTITLED CORAL (AQUA)
