Weekly Photo Challenge – Ooh shiny!

I did have to giggle reading this week’s challenge, pretty things that distract me. Andrea Bagley stated it was butterflies that distract her, and I get that I really do, and I will admit to watching and sometimes chasing butterflies as well. However, when I look through my images two things stand out, animals and…

Weekly Photo Challenge – Elemental

This week’s WPC is Elemental, Erica’s image fired up memories of our trip to Central Australia a couple of years ago, as well as our trip earlier this year to Broken Hill. Then there are trips to the beach on stormy days, fiery sunrises and sunsets, the wide open Australian Landscape, where one can see…

Weekly Photo Challenge – Texture

Photography is a primarily visual medium, but we can experience it with more than one sense. This week, focus on the tactile element of the objects you shoot, whether it’s one distinct quality — softness, smoothness, graininess, or any other texture you find interesting — or a combination of several within one frame. Photography is…

Weekly Photo Challenge – Satisfaction

I get a lot of satisfaction from seeing one of my conceptual portraits move from my imagination to a finished image on my computer. I spent hours, days, weeks even arranging and sourcing the right model, the props, how I want it poses, lit and so one, and that all pretty much happens in my…

Weekly Photo Challenge – Bridges

My Marvelous Melbourne is full of wonderful old bridges, as are some of the surrounding areas. From on top, under and from afar, metal, concrete and wonderful old timber trestle bridges, can bring a sense of nostalgia. Sure we have some big modern constructions too, but I like the older ones. The last one is…

Weekly Photo Challenge – Delta & Transient

I confess to getting a bit confused with WPC, I missed last week’s Transient, but this week’s Delta seems almost the same thing, or were we supposed to include a picture of water? Capturing a Moment in time, I took photos a few week’s ago of people trying to capture the essence of Autumn, the…

Weekly Photo Challenge – Focus

I must admit I am actually finding it difficult to focus on anything at the moment. You know when something BIG is about to happen, the suspense is building and you find that you can’t sit still? That is my plight at the moment, so much is just about to happen and I’m currently chained…

Weekly Photo Challenge – Order

I used to hate chaos and demanded complete order and control, and cleanliness, and then I had children! Things might have seemed messy to some, but there was still an order to it. Once I had kids, my reins slackened a little (for my own sanity) and now I actually find it all quite funny……….what…
