It was 40 degrees C today. Then there was a cool change. No body told my pokey little flat that it was supposed to be cool. I opened the door and the window but it stayed hot and muggy and I couldn’t get to sleep.
“So, why don’t you go for a walk in the park!” said the pokey little flat.
“Or ride,” I said with cynicism dripping like vitriol from my lips. “I will. And I’ll take my camera.”
“It’s seven and a half minutes before midnight,” said the aforesaid room. “You can’t take photos at this time.”
“I can too,” I said as I stomped out. My big growed up son and my clever little daughter showed me that there is a lot you can do with a camera and a smidgeon of brain power.
So I went walking, down to the end of the road, and into the park.
And I took lots of photos in the dark and I will say no more.
“No more,” he said. “Except to say that these are taken at around about midnight on Friday in Caulfield Park after a hot and uncomfortable day.”
Do I need to explain that if you click one one photo – just one click you can start a slide show? (Just for my big sister.)
(All these photos were taken using the light from the scattered lamps throughout the park. Most were shot with the ISO set at 400 but some needed to go on ISO 800. All were exposed for one second with an aperture of 4.8, but I must be more careful with focus next time.)
