Once again I am so impressed by the art (let's call it all art- forget the divisions of "photo-art", "photography", painting, collage etc) that has been posted here on Mandarin Orange Monday. It is really exciting to see the way we see our world and the way we express it.
My world has been a little different this week. I spent most of the week at Manly, apartment and cat sitting for friends- in a beautiful apartment on the harbour. I have been waking up at night to see a full moon shining on the water and going for early morning walks by the beach.
The down side is I have neglected my blog - no posts since last Mandarin Orange Monday. But I have taken lots of photos on my walks. The amazing Water Dragon is the focus of this week's MoM. I am sharing more images this time, but less processing. The processing has been done using an older version of Photoshop, 3, and a laptop, rather than my beautiful, big screen desktop imac.
