The I's have it, Scatterday I that is. :-)
For the category of Yellow, I chose the INSIDE OF AN IRIS. This is a photo of the one and only Iris I've ever managed to grow, boy was I excited when it flowered! Blue Irises with the yellow inside are my very favourite flower.
Moving on to the category of Something Australian, I took a drive to the beach and photographed the INDIAN OCEAN (Australian waters of). This particular section of the Indian Ocean is Cottesloe Beach, isn't it beautiful. Perth beaches have the whitest most gorgeous sand - we are very lucky here.
And finally, Something In The Air. This is INCENSE, and I had great plans to do magnificently detailed photos of incense smoke - I found out that it's actually quite difficult to do! This shot involved a black cloth in the background, lighting from the side and the camera on a tripod. You're supposed to use a fast shutter speed to catch the smoke crisply, but I didn't have bright enough lights so it ended up a bit fuzzy cos I had to slow the shutter speed down.
Can you believe we've been doing Scatterday for half a year! It's been really great to see how many people have joined in - thank you for helping to make it fun! As of next week Michelle and I are throwing all the letters and categories back into the pot to start again, making sure we don't have any combinations the same as last time around. We wont use Z this time, but we will use X, and we'll do a free-for-all with that one when its turn comes round.
But for next week the letter is S, and the categories are FRUIT, GOLD, and THINGS THAT MAKE YOU ITCH.
