Summer Outings – Exhibition Buildings

I feel like it’s been forever since we just went out with photography friends and shot, chatted and just hung out. I know it’s really only been a few weeks, but still it’s good to relax and have a few laughs. This is the old Royal Exhibition Buildings in Melbourne, not the new Exhibition Centre…

See Differently 12 – 15

Ooh only three images to go……this has been a really interesting challenge, very different from the normal pretty pictures I know I usually post, I have found that I can look at the most uninteresting and mundane objects with a new eye and see the beauty in something as simple as a play on light………and…
