Day 365/365: Fungi Finale!

I can’t believe this is the last post of my 365 day project!! What a year! Thank you to everyone who has looked, liked and commented, it really makes doing these images each day worthwhile. I have learned a lot and I feel I have improved – especially in “seeing” things.

My last post of the project is from our trip today to the Barrington National Park where we walked the Blue Gum Loop Track with John’s Uncle & Aunty from the UK. Fungi is the thing that I like to shoot here, so that is my first image. My second is an image of a bridge handrail with Phil & Dorothy crossing it in the background. I couldn’t walk past the mossy blanket growing on it!

I hope you enjoy my last two images. Next year I am venturing into the world of iPhoneography – a whole new challenge!

Day 363/365: Succulent

I shot this succulent in Mum’s garden. As you know, I love shooting anything textural and this has structure as well which is even better! I love the furry texture of these fronds. I think the colour pattern is accentuated by the black & white. Only two more to go, I’d better look for something special in the next two days!

Succulent: Nikon D7000; f9; 1/160; ISO 400

Day 353/365: Boarded Up

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…

Boarded - Up Close: Nikon D7000; f5.6; 1/500; ISO 100

Day 352/365: Auger Bit

I spotted this auger bit lying out in a paddock yesterday. Love the blue metal down the inside of the bit, so decided to drop out the colour in the rest of the pic and focus on that, just for something different.

Auger Bit: Nikon D7000; f18; 1/30; ISO 100

Day 351/365: Rusty Advertising

I can’t tell you how many times I have driven past this sign and thought to myself “I have to shoot that one day!” Well today I stopped to smell the roses, so to speak, and stopped driving to capture a few things. I love this sign for one of the hay farms at Morpeth. A bit of old machinery, rust & creativity and voila! The perfect sign!

Rusty Advertising: Nikon D7000; f5.6; 1/60; ISO 100

Day 342/365: Home Away from Home

Another of my neighbour’s creations. I am so lucky to live in Vacy Downs where I don’t need to worry about the unthinkable happening!! Check out the detail…

Day 321/365: Rusty

This is part of the gate down at the church in Vacy. Love the rust & the flaky paint!

Day 315/365: Wooden Waves

We still have quite a few fallen trees lying around our property after over 4 years living here. Luckily though, as now we have our fireplace! This is a close-up of one of them. Ahhhh, the beauty of timber!

Wooden Waves: Nikon D7000; f4.8; 1/160; ISO 400

Day 313/365: Barking Up the Wrong Tree

The afternoon sun was so gorgeous in the backyard this afternoon, I had to find something to shoot in it. If you follow my blog, you will already know how much I love good texture!

Barking Up the Wrong Tree: Nikon D7000; f18; 1/80; ISO 400

Day 307/365: Obscured Door

I drove to work this morning as usual, and parked in my usual spot. When I looked up I saw this door for the very first time. There are trees obscuring it, but really, I should have seen this door before now, I park here nearly every day! The first thing that came to mind was “What a great door to shoot!”, and because I have been dragging my camera around everywhere I was able to do just that. I am really pleased with the results too. It helps that it has lots of wooden grain, flaky paint and rust – a perfect textural object!
