Regular Random – playing with fractals

I write a little while ago about how I played with some fractal prism filters at the Melbourne butterfly house, how I loved them so much I bought my own set. Between stuff and life and being sick, I had not had a chance to play with them until now. So I spent a simple…

Regular Random – cherries on a plate

I recently did a quick mini photoshoot, normally I work my way through an image and only show the end result, but this day I decided to show from the initial photo, through the end and final three photos. The plate and the main cherries did not move, just me the camera, the linen, the…

Regular Random – Playing with Prisms

I love experimenting with light in my photography, but up until recently, I have never really played with prisms, adding another element to my macro photography. I had a friend let me have a brief play with them on a recent trip to The Butterfly House, at Melbourne Zoo. Rather strange, but pleasing results, in…

Regular Random – Rainbow Lorikeets

On a recent trip to Healesville Sanctuary, about 40kms from Melbourne, I spent a good five minutes with these cheeky Rainbow Lorikeets, so much fun. It’s been so long since I did a #RegularRandom, I thought it was time. I basically stayed in the one spot and followed them, in the tree, on the ground,…

Regular Random – Tulips

I normally associate Spring with tulips, and it is possible that these are being brought in from the Northern Hemisphere, but here in Australia it is late Autumn, almost Winter. In fact, Winter is only a few weeks off 😦 I have been seeing lots of tulips in shops this last few weeks, I spotted…

Regular Radom – Link from Zelda

I recently attended a Cosplay event, it was more like a random get together and picnic, so many of the characters I did not know…but there was one guy who I did know, Link from The Legend of Zelda…a video game, perhaps you know it? I had to give this go at least five minutes…

Regular Random – Stacked Stones

I have found these phenomena before, these stacked stones, they seem to pop-up whenever we are travelling, Cairns to attract travellers and guide them somewhere, often they seem to be located near water…maybe they are sirens calling to the sea. To say I was a little surprised to see them just off the breakwater at…

Regular Random – Orange Flower

On a recent outing to Cloudehill gardens, I was completely captivated by this flower, I could not find a tag in the flower bed and sadly a Google image search said it was either a Blackeyed Susan or an African Daisy; somehow I do not think either is correct…hopefully someone within my friends will know?…
