Day Twelve: Architecture & Monochrome

From geometric patterns on skyscrapers to the ironwork on historical buildings, there are many opportunities to capture the beauty and complexity of architecture.

Weekend One – Experiment & Composition

A few of my shots captured out and about South Australia this Summer.  I’ve been experimenting with my new Samsung Galaxy Note 4 camera. I’m really impressed with the 16 megapixel camera – so much so I haven’t touched my Sony Camera.  I hope to get out and about with that for week two of […]

As a boy who never sat still for five minutes, this photo has captured a very rare moment when my son just stopped and contemplated the beautiful evening. Taken on the River Murray, South Australia in 2006.
