I sat on my front veranda one evening watching the flying foxes gathering around my fruiting cocas palms. I spent a long time watching the bats, which became very visible as the full moon moved in and out of the moving clouds. I was in a deeply contemplating mood and spent some time watching before thinking there was a photo opportunity here. I took the self-portrait the next day in natural light with a view to trying to capture my mood. Combined the photos in photoshop and played around with levels!! A bit contrived but a great leaning experience doing this!
