Spring Outings – Lilydale Lake

A change of pace from some Silo Art for today. Several months ago, we were invited to attend an evening of Light Painting with a different photography group (than we usually do things with). The day had been fairly cold, and wet and stormy, thankfully it cleared up late in the afternoon. We still had…

Wimmera-Mallee Silo Art – Sea Lake

Sea Lake is the newest of the Wimmera-Mallee (Victorian) Silo Art trail, which forms part of the Australian Silo Art Trail. There is also a water tank trail, but that is an entirely different story and I really have nothing to share with these as yet. This amazing installation was completed a few weeks before…

Share your world – 19th November 2019

Commenting on certain philosophical and political themes this week, can’t say it is my normal cup of tea…but let’s dive in for this weeks’ SYW, shall we? Can we ever experience anything objectively?  Why or why not?  I really do feel that anything we experience that is deeply meaningful will always be twinged by emotions. Therefore…

Wimmera-Mallee Silo Art – Rochester

I reckon these silos have to be among the cutest, featuring a squirrel glider and an azure kingfisher, both local and native to the region. Painted by (Jimmy)Dvate. The town of Rochester is super proud of these silos, and why wouldn’t they be. If you would like to read more about Dvate or the cute…

Shoots that have been booked literally for months happened this weekend, one was cancelled, but we were on location anyway, so made the best of being out in nature. I had a photographer friend spend the weekend, down…

Getting comfortable with studio lighting — Photofocus

I must confess that I do prefer to work with natural light for still life photography, even bad light can be beautiful. However, it is not always possible to work during daylight hours during some parts of the year. Sometimes due to a hectic work schedule, I am forced to shoot in the evenings and…

NE Silo Art Trail – St James

St James has a population of fewer than 100 residents and is small even by Australian small-town standards. The Artwork here depicts a mural of Sir George Coles, the founder of Coles supermarkets (Now one of the largest in Australia) who was a local to the St James township. The silo bunkers at St James were built in…

Share your world – 14th November 2019

Feels like it’s been a crazy long week, it’s always a race to the finish line coming up to December. Fortunately, between my business and my day job once I hit December the crazy usually settles down. It was not always the case, we use to refer to the week before Christmas as ‘Hell Week’…
