I’m Not Specialising…

For a very long time I thought that to be a photographer I had to specialise. I had to find a subject & concentrate on it. Get to know it intimately so that when I print photos the viewer would feel what I was feeling about it. Lately I’ve come to realise that for me…

Digital Creations

One thing that is nice about digital photography is the plethora of options available to post process images & the ease of obtaining the software & learning how to use it. I mostly stick to using CaptureOne, but every so often I like to ‘play’ with an image to see what else can be done…

A Closer View

Here is another instance where being on foot has allowed me to photograph an image I’ve thought about numerous times when I’ve been a passenger in a car, without having had the ability to stop to allow me to take photos. I love the rhinoceros statues found throughout Dubbo. They immediately conjure images of the…

Looking With Different Eyes

Whilst taking a holiday is good for the soul, sometimes it can also be good for the mind. On holiday only days ago, I made sure I took some time out from catching up with my dearest friend to look for things of interest to photograph in her home town. I had no expectations or…

Construction On My Mind

The construction of our new home has provided me with a lot of unexpected photographic opportunities. I initially thought that my photos of the build would be of documentary style only, showing progress as the house is built. However I’ve found ample there has been opportunity to get creative with my photos. The strong lines…

Not Perfect, But Not That Bad

Often when I view my photos when I return from a photographic outing, I find myself disappointed with the results. I see flaw after flaw & rarely notice anything that I like about them. Yet when I return to them later on, after a a week or more, I seem to be able to see…

Valentine Close Up

An unexpected gift of flowers from David for Valentines Day provided me the opportunity to get a little creative. As soon as he handed them to me I knew getting in close was going to be the way to photograph them. The intricacies of the tiny little petals that make up one large flower head…

February Words

This month I’m a first time participant of International Correspondence Writing Month – better know as InCoWriMo. I’m having a blast sitting down every day writing a letter note or card to someone. I’m writing both to people I know, and to those that I don’t. I’ve taken some names from the 28 people on…

When Travelling

I love the opportunities that are presented when holidaying at a location that I’ve stayed at before. Although nothing beats the thrill and excitement of visiting a new destination, there is satisfaction to be found in returning to a place I know. It becomes intimate to me in a way, by knowing where good coffee…
