Summer, and heat

With today being 35 C (95 F) and tomorrow being the first day of another season (depending on how you count these things), my thoughts turned to the coming months of summer and heat.

Not everybody's finished up for summer
The UNE campus looks pretty deserted already – but, lo, I spotted somebody heading for the Library.

Empty noticeboards
Definite signs of no-life. The noticeboards have been picked clean.

Summer thoughts - picture of surfer
So thoughts turn to summer and heat. How do I illustrate that during my lunchtime stroll? Ah, the advert with a surfer will do.

Summer flowering 1
My minds eye wanted a summer flower in the foreground with other flowers gradually becoming out-of-focus towards the rear. Unfortunately I miscalculated and everything goes out-of-focus too quickly.

Summer flowering 2
Ditto for this image. Learn from this error.

Over-used, over-hyped photograph - the sunset
Still with summer and heat in mind, this sunset (albeit overly-cliche’ed) burns with the day’s thermal outpourings.

    Wonderful site – I read about it in the Australian yesterday. I particularly liked your audioblog.

    As someone who has an incredibly amateur interest in digital photography I found your photos to be something of an inspiration. I often struggle to find subject matter and your site has helped me to realise that it’s not going to come to me – I have to just get out there.

    Thanks
