This is another thing I have told myself all year I need to shoot. So finally, with ten days to spare, I stopped the car, got out and took some time to grab a few frames. I do wish I could have got closer for some detail shots of this derelict old cottage, but this was as close as I could get. I think it suits the black & white.
A different view of another hay rake. That is all.
This old shed wall caught my eye as I drove down a country goat track on Sunday. I love the mixture of materials – use whatever is on hand at the time to fix things up. Leads to loads of character…
I read a blog post on taking Christmas bokeh shots yesterday morning, so last night before I went to work I had to get the camera out & give it a try! I am really pleased with my first attempts, and can’t wait to try some different style bokeh shots when we go out to look at lights this weekend. I couldn’t even pick just one photo, so you’ve got three. It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas….
The boys both had a great day at Jett’s birthday party on the weekend. I caught Ethan giving this cheeky look to Grandma, I’m pretty sure she was telling him to keep his hands close while Mr Crunch, the grumpy baby crocodile, was out of his box. I can only imagine what was going through that crazy 6 year old mind of his at that moment!
There’s just something about the soft whiteness of a magnolia bud. It oozes purity to me, although the perfect creamy whiteness doesn’t usually last more than a day once the bud opens up. This bud is from the Magnolia little gem in our front garden.
This eucalyptus tree in our front garden is just filled with buds waiting to burst into bloom. I captured some part-burst yesterday afternoon. They are perfectly, symmetrically packed into each bud. Oh, to have a macro lens to get up close to these little gems…
A miserable, rainy summer day and I find myself home early for a change. What better thing to do than go for a wander around the yard looking for things to shoot? This was my pick of my shots, but I might have to post another one or two later this week. All I can say about this one is simplicity is the key to success!
