Felt like I kept bumping into walls today, figuratively speaking. It’s a mammoth effort to shake myself out of the frustration. Push further was the way to go. The idea to photograph the street in front of my house (again) came as I was just day dreaming and looking out of my window. I’ve always been fascinated by moving lights and long exposures, so I thought I’d capture my street in a different ‘light’. I had to wait awhile to […]
This was my view on my way back from my morning run today that I captured using my iPhone. I reckon this bench is THE bench to sit on in the cold winter mornings as it allows you to rest and basking in the warmth of the early morning sun. I’d better remember it the next time I go for a walk, as today I was warm enough after my run I gave the free ‘warm bench treatment’ a miss.
The time when the sun rises and sets have to be the most appealing time to photograph. The light being so low at both dawn and dusk makes everything looks a bit more dramatic. Being NOT a morning person in a major way, I don’t get to see a lot of sun rises. On the rare occasion that I did wake up early enough I was always so amazed at how beautiful everything was in the morning, and always promised myself that I […]
Today’s post features two of my favorite trees. They are two completely different trees, as you can see above. I have posted a photo of each tree in previous months, but again, as they are my favorites, they will be featured probably many more times than you like or care. The bald tree I see everyday during the weekdays as it was located between my kids’ two schools. I took this photo around 9AM after the school drop-off, when the […]

With the day I had it was surprising that energy at all to take a single photo let alone posted it. It might not be a wise decision to change my 50mm lens to a kit lens at the beginning of the week either, but here we are. Here’s one quick shot after a long day, a last look of the street before we turned in for the day.
Today was the last day of school holiday in Canberra. It’s a typical Sunday in the suburb. We drove around a nearby suburb looking for a fast food restaurant for a quick take-away. Too tired to cook, and couldn’t be bothered with more nutritious choice. Good thing I bothered to look up to see this sunset sky, otherwise we will suffer another book cover pattern shot.
A mad dash just before dinner brought me to this corner. My kids were playing outside as the sun was about to set that’s how I noticed the beautiful color in the sky. Well, only a glimpse of it, because the houses across the street were completely blocking the view. So I grabbed the car keys and driving westward just to find a bit of field/empty space so I could see my orange clouds properly. One suburb down they I […]
So it’s been raining since last Sunday and is going to stay raining until Sunday. It is hard to find a subject in this type of weather. It’s dark, not to mention wet outside, I really felt the limitation of the indoor. Trying to brave it out and capture this wetness I went outside. The street was totally empty with people inside having dinner at the time. So I stood in the middle of the street trying to capture the […]
Sometimes you see or pass the same things everyday you don’t even look twice or regard them totally unattractive, even boring, to be used as your object for photo of the day project. But it got me thinking. Sometimes I saw some really nice photographs which has ordinary things as their objects. What I meant was, sometimes the objects in these spectacular photographs are the things that you and I see or even use every day. It’s just out of […]
