With Earth day coming up on April 22, our theme for this week’s WPC is Earth. I have just spent eight days in the Australian Outback, where I had no signal, nor internet for at least three of those days and more often than not; little to none on the rest of those days. I can’t say I went without any tech; I had my car, my camera and my tunes…but I did spend a week getting back to nature.
Day Dream Mine
Autumn is a magical time of the year in the Outback, days are wonderful and the nights not too cold, tru Spring often has wild flowers, but there is something about this time of year…..the light: the sunrises, sunsets and the evening sky – all magic
Missed last week’s challenge, but I am back this week with the theme Surprise! How about some Light Painting in the desert? I think we surprised the local inhabitants……kangaroos, emus, donkeys and goats; no idea what they thought of our group (15 of us) hooting and hollering and lighting up the desert, just for art!
These were taken at the Living Desert Sculpture exhibit outside Broken Hill, NSW. Think Mad Max Territory……not a soul around for miles and miles and here we were Light Painting the desert……………..amazing. Now THAT is Surprising 🙂
Not enough? How about seeing this guy while you are out bush walking? Actually it is my Hubby, he scared the socks of a six year old when he took the mask OFF! Sure SURPRISED that kid hehehehehe.
Til next week, happy snapping……
This week’s Weekly Photo Challenge is Dense. It seems many people had the same thought as I and immediately went for a dense forest. Mine is from a Light Painting gig we did in the Redwood Forest. It is cool and creepy at the same time. Midnight in a deserted dense redwood forest, in the middle of winter in freezing conditions? So what do you do on a Saturday night?
As a mad photographer and a digital artist, I will do just about anything for a really cool photo!
While the Northern Hemisphere is going into Spring, downunder we are in Autumn, most of the countryside is brown and dry and there is not too much green around. But if you look hard enough you can find little pockets of verdant, lush green; for this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge – it IS easy being green
Til next week, happy snapping…
Due to an aversion of heights, you will rarely see me Atop of anything, which is actually the theme for this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge, but I do love a good flat lay for photography, especially for Still Life
I seem to be a bit random with the WPC of late, not feeling inspired by the themes? Not sure. Anyway this week’s theme is WISH, and I have the perfect image, it’s even title ‘Wish’. Dandelion seed pods seem to be a popular choice for this week’s theme.
Bringing the outdoors in……shot in studio with model Hayley.
I missed last week, no excuse, just never quite got around to it…….so now it’s time for this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge – A Good Match
They always talk about “birds and bees”, shouldn’t it be bees and flowers? Glorious little worker bees, they do such a good job, without them no flowers (or fruit) and no honey..now there is A GOOD MATCH
Another good match……….a rare pic of me and hubby, I love this photo, it is real, it is us, no pretense, no fake smiles and that long suffering look (and smirk) at my smart arse comments is probably on hubby face more often than he realises!
I hope you all have an amazing weekend, I know I plan on it!
I have been playing in the studio again, this time with some dried flowers and light and shadow. Perfect for this week’s WPC – Shadow
Just a quick one today…I hope you are having an amazing weekend…
For this week’s WPC the theme is re-purpose, and I suppose as a Still Life photography (amongst numerous other things) I re-purpose a LOT. Jam and pickle jars, old cooking pans and utensils, old crates, vases, tea cups and saucers people throw away; I spend hours at thrift stores re-purposing things all the time.
As a photographer, I capture moments in time, but I also get to create beauty with things other people considered rubbish………in the end I guess that really is re-purposing isn’t it?
