The Sunday Snap 36

Sculpture by the Sea event returned to my local beach after a long break due to, well you know why it got cancelled/delayed, and the crowds returned as well. The crowds can be frustrating at times as people will inadvertently be in your frame, and I found to achieve the best results by focusing on a particular area of the sculpture or angling the camera up away from the crowds. This technique sort of worked most of the time however there we occasions that it was unavoidable.

It was enjoyable experience getting out and photographing my local area as the sun set on another sweltering day and I was reminded I needed to photograph more of my local area in the future.

The Friday Snap (TFS 4)

This project of sharing a photo from the gallery of my smartphone every week has been going for a month now. I’m not sure what direction the project will take me but it will only be around for as long as I have photos that are worthy of sharing.

This weeks photo is of the reflections of a small town on the waters edge. Unfortunately only a small amount of colour in the sky.

Hope everyone has a good weekend.

Virtual Reality Reflections

Wandering through the mall I spotted this fella enjoying himself in the virtual reality world but what attracted to me was the amount of reflections that were in the window. So I positioned myself to take a photo of people looking at me taking the photo while trying not to get my reflection in the image. Not an easy feat.



Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflections

NZ Marina reflections

As many of you might know, wordpress runs a Weekly Photo Challenge with different themes every week. I don’t often participate in the challenges but I certainly look at a lot of the photos that have been posted but this week was going to be different, I decided that I would give this weeks theme a go! I knew that I had several photos in my library with reflections in them. Ao after several hours of searching my extremely well organised photo library I couldn’t find a single photo. I knew what they looked like, I even remembered taking them but I couldn’t find one of them. Unfortunately this is the only photo that I knew where it was. I had posted it to Facebook late last year. So much for my well organised photo library and now it looks like I will be fixing my photo library so I don’t have to go through the same heartache again.
