Welcome to the Photo Morsels photo blog.

I’m an amateur photographer residing in South Australia.  Via this blog, I’ll share some of the images I’ve captured, and include a little of the stories associated with them.

The Photo part of the title is no doubt clear, but Morsels?

Well, a morsel can be:

  • A tasty delicacy; a tidbit.
  • A small amount; a piece.
  • One that is delightful and extremely pleasing.

I’ll leave it to your judgement as to whether Photo Morsels satisfies these definitions.  If it does, leave a comment at the bottom of any of the posts and encourage me to keep working away!

Photo Morsels has quietly past its second birthday and is now in its third year. I invite you to spend a few minutes exploring the fifty plus articles now posted. To help locate items of interest the menu selections at the top of this page group posts by a number of hopefully useful categories.

And don’t forget to bookmark this page or subscribe at the bottom of this page for automatic notification of new posts and see what comes next!

Moonta Bay, South Australia

Well, where did the last couple of months go? Lots of photos taken in Sydney at the beginning of March and a few from an overnight trip to Moonta Bay in regional South Australia. But a spot of house painting and a lack of enthusiasm for sitting at night in from of a computer screen led to a pause in new postings. To correct that, let’s take a quick look at Moonta Bay.

Batu Caves

2015 arrives and finds me still trying to finish the Malaysia travel series. Hopefully, I’ll finish off the remaining posts this month while it’s quiet. Done, hooray!!!

Still in Kuala Lumpur, we take a look at a day trip to Batu Caves.

Petronas Twin TowersIt would be hard to argue that the Petronas Twin Towers aren’t the most famous landmark in KL. In this post we pay the Twin Towers a visit.

A short diversion from the Mayalsia travel series as work finds me in Lucerne, Switzerland. A post made on the road using an iPad, a photo editing app and a Eye-Fi memory card to wirelessly transfer images from my camera straight onto the iPad.

What's ThisSomewhat belatedly, the follow-up to January’s post to reveal the identity of this strange and uncommon sea creature.

The Answer to “What the Heck is This?”

Fun with a fisheyeA few weeks back I succumbed to a couple of tempting listings on eBay. One of my purchases was a rather unusual lens – a 10-17mm fisheye zoom. This Fun with a Fisheye post records my first day’s play with it.

A warm day in AdelaideToday, 14th January, Adelaide experienced its 4th hottest day on record, bumping into 5th place a 45ºC day recorded just one year ago in January 2013. I was down the beach that evening a year ago, and thought today would be an appropriate time to share some images taken that night.

What's ThisA guessing game to identify a rather bizarre sea creature.
