Symmetry in Photographs

This week, the Lens-Artists photo challenge #116, concentrates on the various forms of symmetry to be found in photography; verticle, horizontal and radial. I’ve not spent much time experimenting with this so it’s certainly something I will explore next time I’m out and about with my camera. Much to my surprise I already have taken […]

Why I’ll Never Caddie Again

Chief has been bitten by the golfing bug – and I mean a serious one. 2019 has seen him have umpteen lessons, purchase new equipment, and take his son on a ten-day golfing holiday to Thailand. A couple of weeks ago on our way to the Gold Coast for an overnight stay, I was cornered […]

Focus on the focus

Thanks to Debbie Stott for the inspiration to post these photos; I was inspired by her Kew Gardens in Patterns. Considering we have just entered Winter here in Brisbane, some days I just have to pinch myself; Winter in the sub-tropics does not compare to the chilly months I was used to in Adelaide nor […]

There was a whole family of […]

Square in September – in the pink: day 8

I have been inspired¬† by Clare’s Cosmos to share my first attempt at photographing the moon – a la professional style. I can see the moon rising from our bedroom window and the balcony is a perfect spot to set up the tripod and ‘have a go’. I researched the ‘how to’ and realised that […]

Square September – Day 3

I’m delighted to have the chance to show off my ‘award winning’ photograph with you again – when I say ‘award winning’ I mean ‘runner up’ but hey! it was the first photography competition I’d entered and was ‘tickled pink’ that my hurried snap turned out pretty okay. You can read all about how I […]
