Walls of my World

For this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge, we are tasked with photographing Walls: Share an image of a wall that reveals something about a place, people, or you. Here are some walls that I’ve discovered recently…   This hardware store seems to be using all available wall space for advertising. Some kind of desperation?   This wall is…

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…

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…

Rule of Thirds

For this week’s photo challenge, I have two photos for you. For the Rule of Thirds, the subject of your image is off-centre and it can work really well to have your background out of focus, creating a lovely booked effect. For more photo fun, come visit us at Lucile’s Photo101 Rehab Clinic, a great place…

Serene Contemplation

On a trip to Chiang Mai for a work conference last year, we took time out to visit a temple. This gentlemen spent some time at these lanterns, whether praying or meditating, I’m not sure. It was such a busy place with so many tourists bustling about, but the locals didn’t waver in their dedication.…

2015 Weekly Photo – New

For the weekly photo challenge – New. During the holidays, I did some painting around the house, including re-vamping my front door. It’s a very solid door, most likely original with the house, which I believe was built in 1980. The door is timber with a large lead-lined glass panel. A few years ago, I…
