Petal Details

These photos are part of the shoot with the Lizzianthus from my most recent #RegularRandom post. The first two above are the same shot, just cropped and edited slightly differently. These next three, I love. They are all separate shots. I love the sharp focus in such a shadow depth of field. Macro is my…

Unusual

Weekly Photo Challenge: Unusual You know I love macro. And from a recent session shooting a bouquet of flowers, I focussed in on some unopened irises. Even though they didn’t open, I still find them beautiful. And seeing those blue-veined petals up close with macro, makes for an interesting series of shots, don’t you think?…

Up in the Clouds

With my new job, I’ve been getting up incredibly early (for me) at around 6am. It’s Winter in Melbourne and the sun doesn’t rise until a little after 7:30am at the moment and the temperature at 6am is usually around 4 degrees Celsius.

Cockatoos Gathering

I’ve always loved cockatoos. They have such fun personalities. We had one when I was a kid. We also had a galah, which being pink and grey, was my favourite. We saw these during our touristy trip into the Dandenongs just outside Melbourne. x desleyjane

Reflections of a Man and a City.

These photos were taken at Eureka SkyDeck in Melbourne. Eighty-eight floors up and looking out over my beautiful city. I was putting my camera away when I noticed this reflection. I was standing close to the glass and my brother was behind me, about 15 metres away and I was struck by how cool it…

My family visited me in Melbourne a couple of weeks ago and we took a few trips, doing the touristy things. One was a trip to The Twelve Apostles, which I have always loved. I went there last in 2004 and I went there when I was about 5 years old. This time, the weather…

Balloon Bursting Fun!

A couple of weekends ago, one of the photography groups that I’m a member of, organised a balloon bursting event. They’ve run it a couple of times and it fills up first, but this time I managed to get a spot. And I am so glad I did! It’s an exercise in fast-shutter speeds and…
