066-365: Paper Tree Sculpture for +G+ 365 Project curated by +Patricia dos Santos Paton +James Cockroft and myself

One thing I love about Unitec Mt Albert Campus  is the diverse range of art and sculpture to catch your eye, surprise and delight you. The grounds are very old and thus so are many of the trees. This one being appropriated as part of a paper and card sculpture.

heres a project to put some colour into your life

Color Photography Project (Short)

Enough of this gray boring winter.  When is spring going to get here?  Of late I have been taking most of my photographs with the intent to turn them Black and White for the Project 52 B& W.  With the gray everywhere and the Black and White photos filling up my stream, I have the need for color.  So starting March 1 and going to March 7th, I am going to post one color photo a day.  Anyone want to join me and help brighten up my world?

Feel free to share the post to raise awareness.

Guidelines

1. Let me know on this post if you're in and I will create a circle of participants.

2. Each day will be a different color with that color being the star of the shot. 
  a. March 1 - Red
  b. March 2 - Orange
  c. March 3 - Yellow
  d. March 4 - Green
  e. March 5 - Blue
  f. March 6 - Indigo/Violet 
  g. March 7 - Brown

3. Why brown?  Because I want some chocolaty Nutella goodness.

4. Shoot the actual colors.  No cheating and having Photoshop/Lightroom, etcetera give you the color.  (Tweaking or enhancing is ok, but no blue oranges. 

5. The color of the day should be the star of the shot.

6. Use the hashtag #ROYGBIV

7. Have fun!

It was s a wonderful rewarding and uplifting day, really looking forward to starting this Monday back at Uni. As a Student, that helps the Student Support Center. I was in a bit earlier to help with Orientation for some of the faculty's first years
Throughout the Design Visual Arts and Media Faculty there is always some interesting design art work  and art  installations. This Paper Sparrow Installtion hangs in the Long Black Cafe , where us Artie students refuel between lectures. and beyound the door is the Photographic Studios. So even when I am away I still find sparrows in unexpected places___

048-365: Fair Warning Given For +G+ 365 Project  curated by +Patricia dos Santos Paton +James Cockroft and myself

A young male raises himself up showing a display of wing feathers to warn an arriving sparrow who's boss

As the Seasons fledglings become young adults they begin to assert their dominance. Gestures of intimidation and warnings are given via a complex series of wing and tail feather movements. Those that give the best show, generally see their rivals off. However if required they will resort to using their beaks to make their point

For your Viewing Pleasure

The Common House sparrow is far from common. When in Flight sparrows have a grace unlike any other bird, it is akin to watching a ballet performance. Far from kicking their Fledglings from the nest both Male and Females continue to feed their offspring. these are the images that were runners up to many of my daily photographs. Rather than let them sit in a folder on my computer I thought I would share the life of sparrows with you all

041-365: Its mine, no its Mine For +G+ 365 Project  Curated by +Patricia dos Santos Paton  +James Cockroft and Myself

Two Female House Sparrows fight over food. By raising their wing and tale feathers they use intimidation tactics to, chase the the other off. Meanwhile to the right of frame a Male fledgling lands to take advantage of the situation and get some food.
While I love capturing sparrows in flight I thought I would show other parts of sparrow life before Autumn arrives.
