Day Nineteen: Double & Rotation

Today I nearly went cross-eyed looking for my double subject.  I was prompted when packing for my imminent trip to Malaysia (tomorrow in fact) when looking at my past photographs of the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur and this is what I did.

Day Eighteen: Edge & Alignment

Today, show us an edge — a straight line, a narrow ridge, a precipice. I’ve never used PicMonkey before and I had a go at straightening up a couple of images.  Here are my edge & alignment shots.

Day Seventeen: Glass, Squared

My glass photos are a bit of fun.  Living in the wine capital of Australia there’s only one type of glass to photograph and when indulging in a spot of wine education, you just have to have a few glasses to hand.  When a very good friend came to stay, I just had to capture […]

I wanted to share a lovely image of a very good friend on her wedding day.  It was a hazy Summer’s evening in the beautiful countryside of the Czech Republic (about one hour from Prague).  Following the formalities of the day, it was time to let our hair down as we danced to a local folk […]

Photo101 The week Revisited

I wanted to revisit Day Fifteen: Landscape with a gallery of Australian landscape shots.  In contrast to Creakingbones who used dramatic images of the arid outback, here you will see images of the Adelaide Hills and one of South Australia’s wine regions, McLaren Vale.

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. It would have been easy for me to use the images of the Sydney Opera House from our Day 7 assignment, but that’s no fun! Instead I spent some time capturing images […]

Day Eleven: A pop of Colour

Quite often in my lunch break I stretch the old legs and walk round the block.  I just so happened to pass this mass of colour today. But then I wanted to show off something funky I did on my camera – Yep, I pushed a button!

Day Ten: Mystery & Lighting Effects

The mystery of Týn Church in Prague old town square eerily looming in the background with the warm glow of street lamps in the foreground.
