One last shot

Back home I remembered that I had not tried some of the other tricks of the new camera ... taking a panorama and art filters so here we are, a panorama of our sun room in sepia to give it a 1920s feel.  I notice the lens distorts things a little, because that long wall is actually straight.  In a landscape I guess the problem would be less obvious.

That's it for the New Eye tour.


  1. Your tour has been enjoyable. Looks as though you can do many things with your new camera.

  2. Enjoyed your tour very much. The panorama feature worked well :D)

  3. Having fun with new camera. Too much to learn for me. What a beautiful room.

    1. Thanks. It is like a tree house sitting in the canopy of the trees because the house is on a slope so two levels at the back even though it is on ground level at the front.

      This is a modern addition we put on 10 years ago so much more light that the original parts of the house. I was going to say more spacious as well but that is not correct because being a 100 year old home is has big rooms and high ceilings but this part of the home is open plan.

  4. Your sunroom looks like the perfect place to curl up with a book on a sunny winter's afternoon. (I imagine it gets quite hot in summer?)

    1. It is perfect for a winters morning (in fact most of the day because the room is north facing). And no it doesn't get very hot in summer because the sun is higher, the trees have all their leaf and we open the windows to get a cross breeze. And we actually get very few really hot days in the mountains anyway ... probably less than 5 days a year above 30C.

The end

I retire from the workforce this week and to celebrate have decided to retire my current blogs and start afresh with a single consolidated blog - My Bright Field - to record the delights of my new life adventure.
If you are interested follow me over there.  I will still be Sweet Wayfaring and collecting Royal Hotels.  The delights I discover along the way will appear together with my gardens and towns where I live.

Blue Wren

Having finished the circuit at the zoo we settled down for a nice lunch at the cafe. This chirpy little blue wren came close to our table while his brown wife Jenny jumped playfully on the grass. Nesting swallows swooped in an out of the rafters.
Musing:The Blue Wrens and the Butcher Bird by Judith Wright
"Sweet and small the blue wren
whistles to his gentle hen,
"The creek is full, the day is gold,
the tale of love is never told.
Fear not, my love, nor fly away,
for safe, safe in the blackthorn-tree
we shall build our nest today.
Trust to me, oh trust to me."

Cobwebs they gather and dry grass,
greeting each other as they pass
up to the nest and down again,
the blue wren and the brown wren.
They seek and carry far and near,
down the bank and up the hill,
until that crystal note they hear
that strikes them dumb and holds them still.

Great glorious passion of a voice--
sure all that hear it must rejoice.
But in the thorn-bush silent hide
the nest-builders side by side.

Royal Hotel - Ganman

And I wrap up this trip with the Royal Hotel at Ganman.
