Out and about today

Today was lovely and sunny for the most part and I took advantage of this to head out for an afternoon walk.  I love to take my camera with me (in this case my iphone) and closely observe the world.  Here are my favourite shots from today.

Random ground shot

I've become quite a fan of the ground.  Looking in detail at an intersection provides an excellent opportunity to play with composition.  I find the angles, cracks and textures in this shot really pleasing.  I've used an instagram filter to make it almost black and white.  How do you like the little splash of green in the bottom right-hand corner?

Grass

 Speaking of green, here is a photo of grass.  There is a large vacant lot in Yarraville and I noticed today that the grass was really green.  I think this shot is an interesting look at texture and light in a largely monochromatic colour scheme.
Fallen

Outside a house, I noticed three trees with hardly any foliage on them.  The ground beneath them was prettily littered with fallen leaves and pebbles.  Very attractive.
Sun over Yarraville

When I see the sun like this over Yarraville, it seems obvious why the cinema is called the Sun.  This shot shows the old St George's ballroom (now apartments) in the background.

What did you notice today?
