Day 13 of 30 Day Photography Challenge.

Today I went up to Arthurs Seat looking for Mushrooms to photograph with my new macro extension Tubes attached to the lensbaby. There wasn’t a great deal though i did find a little patch of these mushys.

They were tiny. i’ll share more for Macro Monday.

All the best

Day 12

Day 12 of 30 day Photography Challenge

Today I received macro extension tubes in the mail. I was so excited to try them out. I attached my lensbaby lens to them and experimented and was truly amazed at the results. I’ve never been one for closeup photography though this has really opened a whole new world. The detail in objects is truly amazing and i think a post solely devoted to this new equipment and photos is needed.

When i got home it was raining so a wander in the garden in between rain showers. I could probably count on my hands the amount of time i’ve photographed flowers. I find them beautiful they just don’t challenge me creatively, unless you try and capture them through a rain drop which I attempted though failed. This flower however fascinated me not sure what it is. Lots of bokeh and a tiny bit of focus to satisfy my creativity.

Week of Photos

It’s been nine days since I last published a post. Today’s post is catching up on those days that I haven’t posted.

It’s been a busy week though I’ve managed to take a photo everyday this month . Will try and post everyday from now.

Hope you enjoy

Welcome June, You’ve come to Soon

Welcome June,

You’ve come to Soon,

Haven’t started today very well though managed to get a photo.

Winter has come around so quickly though it certainly feels like it. Its been raining on and off for the past week so puddles seemed like the best subject to welcome June.

The carriages are still on the Ferris Wheel remanants of the summer carnival which also inspires me to redo another photo of a Ferris Wheel puddlegram. Which I’ll take later.

Stay Warm

Bridgewater Bay

imageThis Weeks photo of the Week from my 366 Project is another Landscape shot at Low Tide on Thursday night at the beautiful Bridgewater Bay on the Mornington Peninsula.

I’ve only been taking photos of Landscapes in the last year as I’ve been inspired by other photographers photos of my local area which is a Landscape Photographers Dream. That and also because my kids are getting older and don’t want to be in my photos anymore and bribing them is becoming too expensive.

 

 

Photo of the Week.

This Weeks Photo of the Week from my 366 Project is A Landscape at St Paul’s Beach, Sorrento, that I took on Tuesday.  I’ve attempted this shot a few times though have always got deep shadows of the rocks and no detail. This time i did a bit of study of my camera manual and either by fluke or technique I got what I was after.
