A Photo a Week: Dusk

I took these last Friday. I had been wanting to capture the full moon at dusk for a while though I think the crescent moon is far more mesmerising . There’s something pretty spectacular about brightly lit objects at dusk .

 

 

The moon is a loyal companion.
It never leaves. It’s always there, watching, steadfast, knowing us in our light and dark moments, changing forever just as we do. Every day it’s a different version of itself. Sometimes weak and wan, sometimes strong and full of light. The moon understands what it means to be human.
Uncertain. Alone. Cratered by imperfections.”

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

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.
