Run

Her heart sank. The door wouldn’t open. She twisted the knob wildly, hoping it would just open and let her out of here. She almost crumbled when she suddenly remembered the keys. Maybe one would fit?! She reached down to get them before realizing she had left them in the lock on her chains. She sprinted…

Attempt

She waited for hours. And hours. She tried to force herself to stay awake but her eyes kept shutting and her head was nodding. Each time she awoke, her eyes darted to see the table on the other side of the room to see if he was still there. She knew that he occasionally left…

A Girl’s Best Friend?

Maybe his name is “Diamond”? ūüėČ I’ve been reminiscing about my trip to Amsterdam in April this year and taking a look though the photos on these cold Aussie winter evenings. I really loved these shots. Lucile and I were playing with the 60mm macro lens on my camera and took a few shots inside…

Calling

An interesting place to hang out and make a call. This is a bicycle repair station. While he was here on the phone for about 10 minutes, a couple came up to use the repair station and he was totally oblivious to their presence. They waited about 30 seconds before shaking their heads and leaving.…

For The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge: Half and Half.¬†Here is the prompt: This week, share an image that has two clear halves, literally or figuratively. You could focus on composition, like me, and take…

Monochromatic Dramatic

For Tech of the Month: Black and White, hosted by PerelinColors and Lucile’s PhotoRehab Clinic. This month, they ask us what we thinks make a great black and white image, and what we look for when shooting in black and white. I’ve posted a lot of black and white recently – it really is my…

A Little Drama

I have recently posted a number of photos with white¬†negative space, I really enjoy that type of photography. However lately, I’ve wanted to experiment with dark negative space instead. I plan to do some shooting in the next week or so, but in the meantime I did a little editing in Lightroom on an image…

Dancing in the Dark

My friend invited us to watch her Spotlight Dance at the Dance Studio where she studies ballroom. I took my camera along (of course!) and tried my hand at shooting fast-moving subjects in very low light and with a flash. I used the flash that came with my camera – a hot shoe popup. It…

Escape

The first thing that registered was the dry metallic taste. A singularly unpleasant but not unfamiliar sensation. And then the cold – she realised that she was in her underwear and a t-shirt, how she usually slept, but she felt a gritty dampness beneath¬†her side. She heard herself moaning as she tried to lift her…
