Return


I suspect from reading blogs that lot of photographers tend to return to favourite places and see if they can take photos again but do it better. Or perhaps a place was a successful subject the first time and keeps delivering. Or maybe a wall of blue catches the eye. Here are three more shots of a favourite spot of mine, the UTS (University of Technology) walkway tunnel. The green and blue shots are reflections of passerby, the grey one is one of three faces that are part of the art work. I wonder how many people notice them as they hurry to class?







Have a good weekend,
Val.

A swim at the beach



I went for a swim at the beach, as you do. Perfect sky, prefect temperatures, lovely refreshing water. At home, I uploaded the shots and thought I'd broken my camera. Was there water in it? No, the ring that circles the lens had come a bit loose and had been holding a bit of water. Let's call it artistic effect shall we  ;) Oh, and the camera is fine.








Have a good weekend,
Val.

Little Shrimp


I'm still discovering wonders at the edge of the sea. I know it's a cliche that the sea holds more than we can imagine but the seaweed-smelly low tide rock platforms do too. I position my camera and focus and wait till the sand stops swirling, try to catch the light from the right direction. Mostly, because there is no view finder, I am shooting blind. I was trying to get a good shot of a submerged shell and I got a surprise bonus of a little shrimp.


It makes me want to learn to scuba dive.
Have a good week,
Val.
