Met the owner of this sweet ride (1949 Ford) the other day when I dropped in at Bindoon Heritage Museum. I hope I've done your ride some justice David!

Was driving home the other night and had to stop and take some photos of the old Guildford Fire Station, a fabulous piece of WA's history.
Unfortunately WA lost a beautiful piece of our history this week with Southampton Homestead becoming a victim of fire started by lightning on Tuesday. Really feeling for the property owners who are currently in the UK on business and have lost everything. Thankfully, as far as I know, no loss of human life.

|Added texture & treatment|
Well, after 20 days of trying to keep up with the daily challenge I folded ... just couldn't do it any longer. I was finding that I was just taking photos for the sake of the challenge without really putting my heart & soul behind it so I decided that I would rather concentrate on taking better photos even if it means not using my camera on a daily basis. I could cheat and catch up with the challenge now as it's only 6 days late but I feel that is not what the challenge was about.
So ... yesterday I had some new 'toys' arrive! 2 packs of 12 square filters, some graduated and some solid colours so took a few shots of the paddock behind the house using different filters to try them out and these are the end results. What one is your favourite? As usual they all look better enlarged.
|using a graduated Neutral Density Filter - gives a richer sky colour at the top|
|using a graduated blue filter - even sky colour|
|using graduated blue and green filters - greener grass & even sky colour|

The something I saw today was a fire. This is the view taken from our southern paddock late this afternoon. This fire is approx. 40 kilometres away but we were still getting light ash fallout from it due to the awesome seabreeze blowing our way.
