This little shed in Harrington caught my eye, with peeling paint, and the Closed sign which suggests it was once some kind of shop. It doesn’t look like it is much of anything anymore…
I was really lucky to snap this portrait of Ethan in the pool. Trust me, he doesn’t stay still for long and if he knew I was shooting him, he would have disappeared! I love it, so natural of my little boy.
The pool at the camping ground in Harrington was so much fun for the kids. It is similar to the one in Maitland with a big bucket which fills and tips, slides and lots of waterfalls. I grabbed this image of Kyle behind one of the waterfalls with a slower shutter speed to try and catch the movement of the water.
As promised, here are some more pictures of the statue carvings. The first of a man & woman, like an old married couple – but not arguing! – the second is a detail shot of the bird on the man statue.
Along the foreshore in Harrington, there are lots of these totem poles which have been carved and painted into people. It seems each pole is sponsored by someone, either an individual or even a family. They are very interesting, but I found them difficult to photograph well. There wasn’t much you could do with the composition if you wanted all the details down the pole. Anyway, I still shot heaps of frames of them and this is one I did particularly like. I will put one or two more up tomorrow.
I thought it was only natural to progress from dusk to sunset. In a fairly similar spot, I captured another boy with his fishing rod as the sun went down. Next time I hope it’s my own boys in the foreground, even if that does mean relinquishing my “me” time! Just a beautiful spot…
I spent an hour or so down by the break wall in Harrington, clicking away as the sun went down. It was a gorgeous afternoon, and I thoroughly enjoyed my “me time” with my Nikon! What made me shoot this scene in particular? Other than the beautiful light of the sun going down, it was the little boy and the net he was holding that caught my eye. You could tell he was having a ball with whom I assume was his Dad – especially when they both ran and jumped onto something they were obviously trying to catch!
We were camping over Easter with the family, so on Easter Sunday the boys were summoned to Grandma’s cabin to see what the Easter Bunny had left in there! The four of them played so well together over the weekend and provided us with plenty of free entertainment. This was one of their more angelic moments I captured – Jack, Kyle, Jett & Ethan – Grandma’s Angels!
Pelicans are awesome birds. Yesterday I went down to the break wall in Harrington at dusk and found myself watching them fighting and bickering for the scraps at the fish cleaning tables. I captured this lovely well mannered one patiently floating around, fluffing and airing his wings.
I have processed this image on Johns iPad using PS Express, a nifty little program for minor editing only!
