Seawinds, Arthur’s Seat. Up in the clouds

I’d been watching the peak of Arthur’s Seat be swept over with a thick mass of clouds on and off all day. Finally after work I ventured up the hill to investigate. When I arrived to SeaWinds a blanket of cloud swept over. I was thankful that I may get Some foggy photos. The fog came and went in waves. When it cleared I was disheartened though my spirits were quickly picked up with another wave of cloud that settled over the trees.

I’ve been wanting to get up to Seawinds for a while to get some photos for some new jewellery pendants. I’ll share the new pendant design next week. In the meantime here’s a collection of photos of Seawinds before the leaves change colours. Which will be very soon.02E12D6F-43ED-47DE-92B9-F0C2C503AC3E46C13D02-D85A-436F-91B3-9BFAD4289041B1DC1CCA-C5F3-4CA8-BBD7-1E2EAB197F82B53F9E76-DA1D-478F-AD74-589A691D8041DE296E59-5210-4FEC-B414-C892D01C29AF69A37F9B-6EBD-497E-83DD-355DCBC0BF89D4584B80-ECE0-4277-B6F1-7930CD17A92A709C9588-E8A0-478A-B879-350A297D16E983A49851-2923-4927-BA22-DE60B6EB7CFF63BFBEA2-491B-48A2-BF1E-5A92A0E8D810B442B76E-7819-4D5B-8E1B-65566A10A6C940262DE9-100D-42A1-B999-A888F132CD44E2518918-D657-492D-9A34-461FDA923EDD85B50BFC-06FB-4A48-B0FB-6CAD19515AA631E9D905-37AB-4642-86BE-F197D1215F452307DFF7-0A6E-4359-B724-3D9424AE691A53FD2B1F-C2A3-4917-8891-D8BD316F8C73767B9859-819F-4E1F-A47C-B84BE742E43A32C8CD29-3945-4784-871E-D25035325F79*F8546D3A-14B2-4606-BA7D-8D7555D4A2DB

Hallways and Corridors

” Many speak of opportunities ” when one door opens another one closes” but rarely about the hallway the transition the inbetween where you are and where you are headed the hallway doesn’t have to be a scary Dark endless confusion  it can be a space of massive transformation memories and peace. ”

Last month I did an online course called visionary portfolio with hopes of learning how to put a portfolio together. During the course I have been looking through my archives in search of themes. I mainly share objective images responding to prompts and briefs I find it therapeutic. 

A theme that I realised which occurs in my photography is hallways all these photos were taken when significant events happened in my life which I wasn’t aware until going through my photos.

I want to extend on this project with more Hallway and Corridor photos which I’ll share gradually.4244142C-AF5D-42F2-AA49-D8D964A89173475F1161-7EDC-4783-879D-A095318EF121

Beach Boxes-Setting the Tone

 

Im currently doing a portfolio course and one of the assignments is to set the tone for a portfolio.

I took these photos recently in hopes to have a unified series of photos of Beachboxes.

I had spotted these Beachboxes over the months and  had been waiting for an overcast flat Sky to unify them togeather.  Although the last 2photos have a more colourful colour pallette I think the green grass ties them altogether.

Enjoy

Day 15: Cameron’s Bight Jetty

Day 15 of 30 day photography Challenge.

Yesterdays post inspired me to make a series of photos per day.

Often I take many photos only to pick my best one then discard the rest. Today i challenged myself to take at least 10 different photos of Cameron’s Bight Jetty it forced me to seek new perspectives. Sure they’re not all great photos and i had a limited amount of time to take them though I enjoyed the totally new perspectives I saw .

So for the next 10 days I will be sharing 10 photos a day. I find it a little daunting as time is limiting and subjects maybe boring though i find it a good way for me to broaden my photography and seek new perspectives.

Goodnight

Zoe

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.

I’m Back

Hi everyone it’s been such a long time since I’ve been on WordPress. Life’s busy you know how it is.201902161550306431031

I’ve decided to update my site beginning with a domain which has been funded by selling one of my of my Fine Art Prints -Boat in Fog at Red Hills Art Show. It’s from a series of prints of Fog.

This one was taken on a foggy afternoon in 2014. I love the minimal effect the fog creates on the landscape isolating the boat and also the tiny little figure of a sup boarder in the distance.

If your interested on purchasing a print please get in contact so we can discuss your requirements.aalittleboatcrop-1

The layout of the site will stay the same and I’ll primarily use the site as my portfolio. I also like participating with photography challenges and hope to do a photo a day for the month of June.

If you know of any photography challenges on here worth getting involved in please let me know and also any feedback on improvments I could make to my site would be good. I’d like to add an instagram icon link anybody know how to do that?

All the best

Zoé
