Raindrops

I went out for a ramble with my camera today; and was rewarded with two ticks trying to hitch a ride back to my place. I hope it was only two. I have double checked. You can’t always be sure you found all of the little blighters though. I found a dirt path along the limestone cliffs that wound its way through the undergrowth. It was hard to resist.

Midday Sunshine

When I woke up this morning, I was greeted by housework. Considering I was barely home over the weekend, a surprising amount of work was generated. But the day was bright, warm and clear. The seaside beckoned. And so I had my green tea and rice for breakfast and headed out.

I hadn’t really thought about taking my camera but it was already packed in my backpack. It felt good wandering around on the coast, tramping through the sand. Pausing to contemplate the view, the wildflowers and the salty air. This is one of the photos I took, with others to come over the next few days.

It felt good to get home and I applied myself to the housework and task of job hunting with renewed vigour. After the mental exhaustion of the weekend I feel much more positive.

Early Morning at Point Peron

Found this sitting in my draft folder. I know that its in Point Peron as I recognise the silhouettes, but not when it was taken or why we were there. We go here a lot though, so it may have just been a walk and the sky was a lovely colour.

A Photo Challenge: Circle

In an attempt to engage more with my photography, and this blog, I decided I’d start making an effort to participate in photo challenges. I’ve begun with The Daily Post’s Circle challenge. It was a spur of the moment decision, and I decided just to roll with it then and there. There were a few things I could have gone with, but I thought this would be kind of funky.

I didn’t really think about the process while I was doing it, and just went with what felt interesting. I quite like the result 🙂

Honeycomb Lights

Back in March 2015 I decided that I wanted to give street photography a go, so with my trusty camera and body guard (in other words I made hubby tag along) I set out one night into the CBD for a photowalk.

I done a little research beforehand, though I wanted to try and learn from mistakes so I kept my reading to a minimum. I took on board a few recommendations and decided to stick to those for the duration. I was more interested in the results I’d get than how well the photos would turn out, though I am pleased with the results!

This particular photo was taken near the Perth Underground, and was one of the first things that I saw as we came up into the city. I was fascinated by the lights, since you can’t really appreciate it during the day when the lights aren’t as bright and the area crammed full of people.
