The Transperth Ferry crossing from Elizabeth Quay to South Perth where Perth Zoo is located. This ferry is called Tricia after the elephant who lived at Perth Zoo until 2022 when she died at the age of 65, a very decent age for an elephant.

A few recent uploads. Some from a trip to Andalucia, Spain in June. Whilst we were there we drove up, from the coast, to visit Seville, a long drive but so worth it. Other than that theres a few shots from around the Nerja area, where we were staying. The Indian food shots are from an Indian restaurant we visited in Spain. The food was excellent so I had a go at making my own Saag Paneer once we were back. Its the first shot below. It's a lot wetter than the normal Saag served at Indian restaurants in the UK so I'm hoping it might stand out a little from the other, numerous, Aloo images on Alamy. Lots of research and keywording to do now...

I hope your album and book covers get to stay.  Alamy had me take down a whole bunch that were not shot with some other kind of context

A few from our latest dive trip

A pair of Whip Coral Shrimps size about 10mm

A live cowrie showing the mantle and syphon

Juvenile Razorfish, they disappear into the sand when alarmed, so only one shot and it's gone

Two stromb shells displaying what appears to be mating behaviour, according to scientists who I've asked, but no one 100% sure. I watched as one animal butted and turned over the shell of the second animal and then stuck the radula (mouthpart) in. Couldn't hang around to take more shots as low on air, low on energy and still had about 300 meters to swim back to exit point.

Looks like a little gnome peeking out. I guess the extra eye is the other guy. Strange and confusing.

I really would have liked to have been able to stay and see what happened, but being underwater doesn't allow that of course. This is what they look like when out and about and feeding

I was briefly in the town of Busselton on Thursday and had my camera in case I got a chance for some photography. There were rain showers frequently sweeping through and in between the sun would come out a little. It created lovely continuously changing atmospheric lighting conditions which I really enjoyed working with. I was on the foreshore. The first minimalist image was taken looking towards the western end of Geographe Bay with the misty rain showers visible. The second looks out towards the Busselton Jetty with a smaller inner jetty in the foreground on which two girls appeared in the frame while I was trying to capture the jetty train heading out. Both are taken with the Fujifilm 50-140mm. I am loving this lens and increasingly using it at the moment.
