Queensland Art Gallery – March 2015

In my first Changing Seasons post (January), I featured some photos of exhibits from the Queensland Art Gallery. I love this place, the exhibits are amazing. During my most recent Changing Seasons post (March), I spent some more time at my favourite exhibit, Zilvinas Kempinas’s Columns 2006, an installation of magnetic video tape. I’ve featured some…

Twilight Beach

  During my recent 5 Photos 5 Stories challenge, I posted a photo entitled Despair, which was a black and white photo of my friend up on a rock. That same evening, I took a number of photos at the beach (Maroubra). It was almost 8pm and the light was almost gone, I quite like…

Orange is the New Challenge

My submission for this week’s photo challenge – Orange. I love these gallery challenges, it’s fun to go through and find photos that are unrelated except by their hue. These include photos taken with my Olympus OMD EM5 (they’re the watermarked photos). Interspersed are also a bunch of iPhone snaps. Some of these I’ve posted before…

One Photo Focus 3

This week for One Photo Focus, Stacy from Visual Venturing brings to us a photo from Loré Dombaj from Snow’s Fissures and Fractures, called Scene from a Salzburg Cafe.

Who Am I ??

I found some very cool plants on my recent travels. My header image is shown in colour in the gallery below – it’s a very cool dark dark purple colour. It’s an amazing succulent, but I couldn’t find anyone to tell me what it is. The header image, I was trying some new editing. I converted…

Tea (Coffee) Party

 I’m again joining Justine’s Tea Party and bringing one of my favourite coffees – the affogato. This delicious little concoction is a scoop (or 2) of ice cream with a shot (or 2) of hot espresso. Affogato is Italian for drowned, so let’s drown our ice cream in coffee – yum! Don’t forget to use…

Reward

  I could see the sunset in the distance, but it was always obscured by buildings and such, so it was a great REWARD to round the corner and spot this scene. I had to pull into someone’s driveway and jump out of the car with just a couple of minutes of light left, but…

Fly on Flower

Fly lands on flower      Searching for the sweet nectar            But he’s not a bee   My first and quite pathetic attempt at a haiku – eek! But I like the photo. Unfortunately, his feet are disappearing into the flower due to my shallow depth of field but this…

So Not Ready

She drove as fast as she could. Her heart racing as fast as the car, the terrifying phone call replaying itself in her mind. As she checked the rear-view mirror, she lost focus for a second and the car swerved dangerously close the edge. She was close to tears, her mind working overtime, thinking of…

Despair

As the day draws to a close and the light begins to disappear, he climbs his rock and waits just near the edge. He shakes his head. What is he waiting for? His love has gone. Not coming back. No chance. But he can’t stop. This is their spot. This is where they found each…
