Regular Random – Magnolia and Bokeh

I adore Spring Magnolia, or at least late Winter Magnolia and on a recent trip to Brisbane we spent a few minutes with a lone Magnolia and some beautiful filtered sunshine. When the sunlight glitters and bounces around it can create the most gorgeous bokeh, I even caught some images of just the bokeh alone.…

Regular Random – Flowers on the windowsill

I was staying with my daughter on holidays and she had this sweet posy on her windowsill, I think it may have been a birthday gift from work colleagues. I would stand next to the window and look at the blue sky while making coffee, I felt they needed at least five minutes of my…

Regular Randon – pink Gerbera

Not really sure this classifies as a full five minutes for regular random, but some days you just have to take what you can get! I had this sweet little pink gerbera leftover from a class and I just caught a few snaps of it, before it was past it’s prime, a little squirt from…

Regular Random – Sunny daffodils

I spotted these while I was out food shopping, just had to have them, aren’t they a magnificent drop of Spring sunshine? I could not resist a quick Regular Random after work one night, late, weak Winter light. I can feel it…Spring is coming, soon. Good thing too, I am so over Winter and the…

Regular Random – Cupcakes???

I have something a bit tricky for you this week, yes they are cupcakes, but they are soaps! Look good enough to eat, right? They are from PlanetYum, I have been looking for some for a while. So I don’t have to keep buying (and eating) real cupcakes. This does NOT mean I won’t buy…

So last week I featured my King White protea with the fractal prism filters, but I also took some lovely photos, without and I thought I would share those this week. This plant is a rambling bush (well it is in my garden – I have several), with the most enormous cream coloured flowers. They…

Regular Random – Fractal Protea

Last week I featured some dried hydrangea, that I photographed with my new Fractal prism filters and promised this week some more. Well, here is a King White Protea from my garden. It was in the afternoon, with a bright burst of Winter sunshine, managed to capture some sunbursts as well. I think I prefer…

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…
