This beautiful city is full of colour, which I’ve shared on social media, and I’ll share here too, but I love the look of black and white and minimal colour as well. I feel like this trip is helping me to redefine my editing style and I’m enjoying it immensely. Here are a few of…Read More
iPhriday – The Wall

Duotone, and of course one of them is pink!
From my last Changing Seasons shoot. I love this walkway (called The Arbour) and I love the gorgeous pink bougainvillea covering it. In Lightroom, I reduced the saturation on all the colours except Purple and Magenta. There were a couple of people in the background also wearing some pinky colours, so I used the brush…Read More
Beautiful Brisbane – November 2015 (monochrome)
Here is another gallery for the Cardinal’s Changing Seasons Event. My first gallery of colour shots can be seen here. There’s something about the black and white ones that really appeals to me, particularly shots with people and shots at night. As usual, Olympus OMD EM5 with 17mm or 60mm lens, handheld, wandering my city,…Read More
You could be forgiven for thinking that these photos were taken in some wintry location in Europe or the US. However, I took these in my back garden about a month ago. This pine tree grows in my neighbour’s back garden, tall and proud and I am always fascinated by it. Often, there are large…Read More
Here is my selection of shots for The Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Monochromatic, tasking us with showing shots were one colour predominates the frame. I hope you’re having a wonderful week. x desleyjaneRead More
There were so many selfie-takers out and about when I was soutbank recently doing last month’s Changing Seasons shoot. This weary but doting mum was not taking a selfie. She spent about 10 minutes taking photos of her daughter who was trying out a number of poses and facial expressions. Don’t you just love people-watching 😉…Read More
She knew she must look a fright. It was evening and yet she was walking through the airport wishing that her huge sunglasses would cover her entire face. Or at least more of her swollen and flushed cheeks. The tears wouldn’t stop. She’d been fine when they’d said goodbye (well maybe not fine, maybe just…Read More
This young lady was totally immersed in her book, catching some rays on a Winter’s afternoon. I wonder what she’s reading… Any guesses? From my recent Changing Seasons shoot at Southbank in Brisbane. Submitting this photo to Lucile’s Photo101 Rehab Clinic. x desleyjaneRead More
This guy was enjoying the sunshine, listening to his tunes. Whaddya reckon? Shania Twain? 80’s Hair Bands? Metallica? David Guetta? From a recent trip to Southbank for my Changing Seasons shoot. For Lucile’s Photo101 Rehab Clinic. x desleyjaneRead More
A Girl’s Best Friend?
Maybe his name is “Diamond”? 😉 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…Read More
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.…Read More
