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…

Exploring the Goulburn, Mallee and Wimmera Regions of Victoria – Part 3

Day 3 We woke to grey skies but the rain had mostly stopped, just a few occasional random drops here and there. We made our way over to Sea Lake and the newest of the Silo Art only completed a few weeks ago, as well as some local street art as well. Then onto Lake…

Our New Zealand Adventure – Day 13

We woke up early grabbed a coffee and headed out, really not much to do in this part of the world, headed over to Palmerston North to see The Old Brickworks, pretty uninspiring after the Cement Works the other week. Stopped at Opiki Toll Bridge (or what is left of it). So we continued onto…

Tuesday’s Textures

I spent most of last week feeling miserable and trying to sit and concentrate on anything was difficult, so I took this image (Lake Taupo, NZ) and just played with it, I adored the Monotone image, the calmness of the water and I simply made it a little more painterly. ~ Julz, xo

Out of the Studio – The Lake with Blade

I did a post recently about MacArthur Park, I was lucky to have the superb weather for this shoot with Blade Whittaker. We shot on the edge of a small lake, we had also done a brief session in the studio, but the weather was too gorgeous to be inside. I had this idea in…

Spring Outings – MacArthur Park

On a recent scouting trip, I was taken by a photographer friend to MacArthur Park near Mitchell Park, Ballarat. I immediately thought of the song, it was Spring indeed, but there was no cake melting in the rain, nor the dark! We did, however, come back here for a few photo shoots, as it was…

Weekend Wanderings – Natural Bridge

Another wonderful spot, on The Gold Coast in Queensland, once you get away from the beaches and theme parks are the Hinterlands. The Gold Coast is nestled in a thin strip between the mountains and the ocean, tropical rainforest and lovely little towns abound in these areas. We had limited time on this trip, really…
