flying kangaroo

Everyone knows I love to fly. I should do it more often (if it wasn't for the high cost) I'd fly a lot more. Today Qantas unveiled their new logo (or branding) a "softer version" of the famous Flying Kangaroo. The logo has been revised four times since – in 1947, 1968, 1984 and 2007. I never knew it was changed so often.

They also unveiled a new plane, a Airbus A380 aircraft. It has wider seats (which is a bonus). I read somewhere that they are introducing the new aircraft in August 2008, I'll be flying home from New York in September 2008, hopefully I'll get to try out this new 19.4 inches wide seat! With a 9-inch incline too! As I can’t sleep on a plane incline isn’t that important. Let's hope they increase leg room (being tall it's awfully cramped on a long flight.)

The joys of photography (or any art for that matter) are people see different things in the same image. Personally I love this shot. I love the fragility of the flower. The translucent quality of natures perfect sphere. It's one of my favourite shots I've taken this year. And to think it’s now considered a weed!! I could have picked it and blew, giving nature a helping hand but I resisted. I walked past it again this morning and it’s gone….just a stem remaining.
