    Went to the zoo yesterday.

    Yes, yes, yes. You will never ever regret you had the best camera you could afford to capture all those family moments. Your grandkids and their children and their children's children will not regret it either.

    PS. I don't own a Hasselblad, but it would be nice if I did.

    Went to the zoo yesterday.

    I posted earlier that if any non-professional wants to buy a $60k Hasselblad just to photograph their family, I totally understand.

    Went to the zoo yesterday.

    Didn't take any photos of the animals. But I took this one of my wife and daughter being aeroplanes, and it's the only photo that matters.

    That looks like an echidna.

    Thanks! I just remembered that one time during a walk when a girl at the park wanted to make friends but Jadey wasn't too sure about it.

    Not Jadey, she'll go where I go. She's one in a million. Also getting on with age, she's 18 now and slowing down a lot. She doesn't come out for walks anymore, especially in winter when it's too cold for her arthritic joints. When summer comes, she'll come out for the occasional stroll but...

    Jadey will follow me. Atom has a mind of his own, more or less. He may follow, or he may say he'll meet us back at home and then explore on his own.

    Cats love to be taken for a walk. ... My other cat enjoys it too.

    Have you ever taken your cat out for a walk at around 1am or 2am and come across a kangaroo who is just as surprised to see you as you are of it?

    It doesn't look like it, but I am standing far within the city limits of the nation's capital here, in the middle of a suburb or three. I suppose there's good reason people call it the Bush Capital.

    You gotta say CHEEEEEEEEEEEESE to let them know you're taking a photo. I mean, some of them are looking away, another one looks like their eyes are half closed, others look unprepared. Cheese man, cheese.

    But it literally was little. It was about the size of my thumbnail. The other spider I posted earlier in this thread was about the size of the palm of my hand.

    I can't remember if I posted these before. It just so happens to be in keeping with the spider theme. I almost walked into this pebble hanging about above the decking outside the house a while ago: I followed it up: The pebble was acting as an anchor for this web: So that...

    What bilzmale said. The huntsman spiders are not aggressive and generally mind their own business. In fact they help keep pest bugs under control, so they're very good to have around. If I see one or two around the house, I usually leave them alone. They come and go as they please. One of...

    I needed evidence of the culprit when they find my bones and my camera months later.

    Probably not. The spider is big enough to have dragged your body back to its den. You would've kept it and her babies fed for a couple of months at least.

    Came back from a late night walk with the cats. I reached up to pull the gate shut when I felt my hand land on something soft, furry, and moving. I switched on the torch and ... yeah.

    The mother was ok with me being this close but the joey was cautiously keeping an eye on me from the pouch.

    Destructive graffiti vs Humorous Commentary graffiti.

    It's an old neighbourhood where there used to be lots of old homes and less privileged community. But in recent years there's been big developments, expensive townhouses built over old delapidated homes, warehouses converted into upper class habitations etc. So there's a bit of a clash...

    Destructive graffiti vs Humorous Commentary graffiti.

    Took a stroll through an unfamiliar neighbourhood when I found out I was early for a jazz photography gig. Saw these along a wall. I quite enjoyed the commentary in response to the delinquent ugly graffiti. And this is the wall.

    By the way, I have two cats who will take long walks with my dog and I:

    Took Jadey to the shops.

    When Jadey was a tiny kitten, she used to perch on my shoulder when I took the dogs out for a walk so she's always come on walks with us from a very young age. In fact if I left her behind, she'll run out the back door and jump fences to catch up with us down the street meowing in protest at...

    Took Jadey to the shops.

    I've taken Keesha to many places but have never taken Jadey anywhere, not even to the vet. Touch wood, she's been of good health in all of her 12-13 years of life so far. She looked playful and energetic last night... ....so I decided to take her to the suburban shops...

    This looks like it could be a photo taken in the Australian outback too.

    Two's a crowd, three's a spectable. Apparently.

    Jadey wanted to play but Keesha wasn't having none of it. They used to play all the time when they were pup and kitten, 12 years ago.

    Thanks Luke, the joy of being Jadey, that's what it's all about. She has bad days too, sometimes she'll come home in low spirits demanding a lap to sit on to reflect on her day in peace.

    Went out for a walk earlier this afternoon. Jadey was enjoying the afternoon sun too much to come for a walk with us so it was just Keesha and I. I was walking along deep in thought when a 4WD came to a stop on the other side of the road and the driver rolled his window down. I thought...

    Cat Walk.

    Thanks, that yellow cast is from the streetlights. Everything is yellow at night, which is why I convert most of the photos to B&W.

    Cat Walk.

    Yeah I totally understand. With both my cats, I had to trust that they'd come back. Actually it starts from when I first got Jadey when she was a kitten, and Atom when he was a kitten years later, both from the shelter. There has to be an immediate connection so you know that there is going...

    This is Atom slinking under the same gate, with Jadey looking on (photo taken earlier this year).

    Cat Walk.

    When your cat is prowling in the bushes, does it respond to you when it wanders too far? Earlier during tonight's walk, Atom slunk under a gate and disappeared into the darkness of somebody's front yard. I thought he decided to go hang out on his own but he suddenly appeared out of no where in...

    Thanks very much David and Peter. Can't beat late night walks when the world is dead quiet and still.

    Cat Walk.

    Thanks Gary. I go full manual for the dark shots. If I left anything up to the M8, it'll royally screw exposure by over-doing it. I sort of know the light conditions around my neighbourhood at night and I always shoot at f/1.1 to take as much exposure load off the M8. I then set up the...

    Cat Walk.

    Took Keesha and Jadey out for a walk tonight, but it was drizzly and Keesha wanted to go home early. So we headed home but we bumped into Atom along the way. After dropping Keesha off home, Jadey Atom and I went out for another walk in the slight drizzle. Jadey doesn't usually like being...

    No story, just walking Keesha and Jadey when I saw the leaf propped up on the ground. I thought if I shot the photo from the other side, the street lights might come through and light up the leaf from behind.

    We took her out to the park this morning, beautiful sunny day. Her 'mane' pretty much turned white while we were there. Now that we're home a couple of hours, it's gone back to brown-ish again.

    That's interesting because I've never been able to interpret that from their demeanour and body language.
