Beers with Stu

I am pretty sure that if I went through my archives, I could find a similar post about having beers with Stu “Capt’n Stubbing” Beattie. A true champ among men. Again, we found ourselves at the “Vicar of Wakefield” tonight, catching up on 6 months of movements & just enjoying good Christian fellowship. Any night with the Capt’n is guarenteed to be a highlight of the week.
In other news, I have a new interest in taking black and white photos. It is something that I haven’t really done much of previously. You will all have to live with my initial fumbling attempts to capture something interesting.
Oh, and thanks to a majority vote, I will continue giving explanations with my pics. They are long ones today!.

I decided to take a picture of the leaves on a tree that I was walking under. It never seems to work well in colout. This old Japanese guy appears from nowhere (I was next to his block of flats) and asks me what I was doing. I thought he was going to tell me off for something, but we ended up chatting for 10 minutes as he told me all about the camera he likes to use & how I should join the APS (Australian Photographic Society). I wish I had have taken a picture of him now.

Killing time in Hornsby, I was taking pictures of this fountain (none of which turned out) when I spied this kid trying to till a bottle by holding it over one of the spray-jets. He actually drank what he caught. I didn’t have the heart to tell him that it is supposed to be recycled water…

I was taking pictures of Stu, then he took some of me. I think I like his pictures better, though it is definately not because of the subject matter…
