Toowong Cemetary, Brisbane Australia. Sad that some people get a thrill from defacing the resting places of others - with not even a piece of eight to show for it.
Placed 30th (oh well) in the FujiMugs "Movies" challenge.
Known around here as "Christmas Beetles" as they tend to come out around November/December, our summer. Their colourings are just amazing, providing you can get past the fact that they are, after all... bugs.
Taken for the PhotoFriday 'Symbol' topic. The equipment behind the glass is a Telequipment D83 CRO (Cathode Ray Oscilloscope) that still gets permanent residence on my desk despite being rarely used. It's a geek thing, I guess :-)
In a patch of scrub recently burnt out a colony of ants on a tree trunk encourage their mates to burst the pinata - who oddly, seemed unpeturbed. Taken with a homemade diopter attachment on a Fuji S7000. Placed 7th in the Fujimugs "Festivities" Open challenge.
Our lives are so full of "little black boxes" that hide from us a level of complexity that few of us truly grasp. This is a HeNe (Helium-Neon) Laser refracted across some PC-104 hardware, with a touch of dry ice to highlight the beam. The speckled nature of the red areas is inherent to laser light.
