The Sunday Snap 28

The colour and drama filling the sky took my breath away as I watched the sunset on another day.

Until next time, happy shooting

The Sunday Snap 27

First Sunset of 2021

The first sunset of 2021 was an absolute killer. The sky was filled full of drama and the sun just lit the sky up and it just kept getting better and better. Couldn’t stop taking photos

Until next time, happy shooting

The Sunday Snap 24

Always seem to stumble across a piece of Australian history when we’re out wandering through the bush, and I never seem to have my camera at the ready and revert back to using the phone to take a few shots. I think it all comes down to the ability to do a quick edit without having an internet connection to show your mates.

Abandoned

Stumbled across a few old buildings from a sawmill that are no longer in use, the main sawmill building is pretty uninteresting and bland but the building in these two photos has a lot more character, and even though I wasn’t wearing appropiate footwear I was still drawn inside to look around.

Abandoned

For those of you who are under a lock down, please keep smiling as the lock down and self isolation will eventually come to an end and hopefully life will resume some sort of normality.

For those who celebrate it, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year,

Until next time, Happy Shooting

The Sunday Snap 23

Walking through the bush with a good friend late yesterday afternoon had both of us looking at the way light fell through the trees and cast shadows across the path. We eventually found a spot that fitted our needs to capture the falling light and hopefully some leading lines to draw the eye down the path.

Until next time happy shooting

It’s been quite some time I’ve participated in the 52 week Smartphone challenge due to world events. Fortunately today was an opportunity to get out with family to see some sights, support local businesses and take some photographs.


The Ferris Wheel in Freemantle screams out to be photographed, plenty of leading lines and the red gondolas are contrasted nicely against the blue sky. 

Photographed using a Samsung Note 10 and processed using snapped.

Until next time, stay safe and happy shooting

The Sunday Snap 11

As I go about my day, thoughts of the week’s theme float around in my mind everywhere I go and interrupt everything I do. Constantly on the lookout for subjects to photograph that meet the theme and then I spend time thinking about how to compose the shot.

After spending considerable time photographing the bamboo, not just with the smartphone but also the film camera, I was eager to process the shots. The B&W roll is not yet finished but I wanted to sit down and do a quick edit before leaving because I may need to go back and reshoot the scene.

It was difficult to know where to focus my efforts because there are so many names etched into the bamboo and eventually settling on the one bamboo pole that was untouched.

Home town is the theme of the week for the 52-week smartphone challenge and I must admit, this one had me stumped. As a young lad, my parents bought and sold houses meaning we moved a lot, lived in them and then every (usually) 2 years or so we’d move again and that theme has continued on throughout my life.

Its a bug with side effects of wanting to live in and explore new places every few years, make new friends, work and then pack up and move and do it all again which meaning we have lived in every Australian capital city, except Hobart.

My home town is Australia and this is my backyard, a white sandy beach with crystal clear water, warm sunshine, cold beer about 60 or 70 kilometres east of Esperance.

and before you ask, No, I’m not on the run from the law!

Until next time, happy shooting

The relaxing mood surrounded waves rolling in whilst enjoying a cold drink watching the cargo ships sail off into the distance with their valuable cargos destoned for a new port.

Another visit is on the cards to be able to capture the mood before it changes with the coming of cooler months.

Until next time, happy shooting.

Really enjoying the 52-week smartphone challenge as it has forced me to consider how to approach each week’s theme and this week had me searching for leading lines everywhere I looked.
