Untitled Entry II

Posted by KingBean on June 8, 2009 6:37 pm

Tuesday May 12, 2009
Cock in a box. 12:22pm.


Finger mould. 4:10pm.


I think this was a rat. I had to take the photo in darkness, so it was hard to get up close with the flash going off… this was taken from a distance and cropped to size for maximum flatness. Somewhere behind the Thai restaurant and Subway in Belgrave. 6:08pm.


Sunday May 17, 2009
Some trees that got burnt in the recent bushfires in Healesville. We were in the area for Dad’s birthday and my Aunt used to live up this road. 1:57pm.


Mushrooms. 4:12pm.


Another mushroom. If you look closely you can see the microcosmos enjoying themselves on the underside. 4:57pm.


I couldn’t find the name of this fungus but they’re these little pod things, and when you poke them they shoot out a cloud of spores. It’s amazing. Spore close-up in the second pic. 5:30pm.



Tuesday May 19, 2009
A tiny skeleton I found in a school gardenbed in Bayswater. 3:25pm.


Tuesday May 26, 2009
An old Copic ink at work that someone had opened and spilt. Not sure how long ago that happened, but it made the sticker look pretty cool. 4:49pm.


Wednesday May 27, 2009
The battery in my iRiver had carked it, so I had to order a new one from Hong Kong and replace it. This is how much effort it required!! Pretty interesting to see the insides of it though. 8:50pm.

Okay so I don’t really like the whole ‘blog’ craze but I wanted somewhere to post photos I take regularly, and this seemed like the best way to do it. Blabbing will be kept to a minimum. Most likely just one sentence per photo.

Anyway, this is the first post so here’s a bunch of photos from the month of March 2009. In future I’ll probably not post so many photos at once.

Wednesday March 11, 2009
The sun going down over the CBD, from Richmond station. 7:24pm.


Saturday March 14, 2009
A few people I was waiting with for a train home from Parliament station, delayed by 20 minutes due to vandalism. Sick. 12:17am.

Sunday March 29, 2009
Hayley typing. 1:15pm.

A mysterious splattering of blood at Shiprock Falls, Gembrook. 2:23pm.

A dead rabbit that had wasps coming in and out of its eye socket. Sweet. It was about 50-odd metres from the above blood. 2:26pm.

Coprinopsis atramentaria (ink cap). Gilwell Park, Gembrook. 3:42pm.

“It is a widespread fungus and eaten, though it is poisonous when consumed with alcohol – hence another common name, Tippler’s Bane. The black liquid that this mushroom releases after being picked was once used as ink.” How interesting.

We had earlier driven past one that was on a stalk a good 20cm high.


Tuesday March 31, 2009
Got into work and this had to greet me. Nothing got pinched thankfully but it was a pain in the arse. 8:40am.
