Weekly Photo Challenge – Monochromatic

I recently came across this scene in Savusavu, Fiji. There was so little difference between the colour of the water and the hazy sky that it was difficult to see the horizon. I played around a little with the photo in Lightroom to produce this image for last week’s theme of Monochromatic. Advertisements

The Bolte Bridge – From Every Angle

Those of you who follow me on Instagram and Facebook will know that I recently did a night photography class as I’ve been bombarding you with my practice shots ever since. I’m posting some again for this week’s photo challenge so hope you’ll indulge me just one more time. This week we’ve been asked to […]

Weekly Photo Challenge – One Perfect Day

Today Was a Good Day is the theme for this week’s challenge. We’ve been asked to post a series of photos using an app called Mesh to describe an ideal day. I’ve not used Mesh before and started with the built in captions, but found they covered most of the photo so decided to describe my day […]

Weekly Photo Challenge – Beneath Your Feet

For this week’s theme of Beneath Your Feet I’ve selected a photo from my recent trip to Shanghai. I took this shot from the balcony of the Jing’an Temple. I wanted to capture the beautiful patterned paving stones of the courtyard beneath and waited for the couple to enter the frame to give the image an additional element […]

Weekly Photo Challenge – Half and Half

I’ve fallen a few weeks behind in the weekly challenges mostly because I’ve been quite sick. Nothing too serious thank goodness – just a really bad cough and cold. Anyway I’m finally feeling well enough to notice all the things I’ve not done over the past few weeks and this is one of them. Last […]

Weekly Photo Challenge – Symbol

I’m very late for this week’s photo challenge.  This is partly due to feeling pretty lousy with a bad cold for most of the week but also because I’ve struggled to think of something to publish. But trawling through my photos one more time looking for inspiration it suddenly became obvious. What better symbol of Melbourne […]

Weekly Photo Challenge – Door

Door is the theme for this week’s challenge. Easy! Well so I thought until I started trawling through my archives and discovered that I have so many photos of doors. So which do I post? I took this photo in AC/DC Lane on one of my recent city wanders – if you look closely you can […]

Weekly Photo Challenge – Muse

What is my Muse when it comes to taking photographs? What subject do I turn to frequently, more inspired each time? These are the questions we’ve been asked to consider for this week’s photo challenge. For me it’s the streets of Melbourne. Whenever I’m looking for inspiration or I want to try a new technique with my […]

Weekly Photo Challenge – Roy G. Biv

ROY G. BIV is the theme for this week’s challenge.  I’d never heard this term before – it’s an acronym to help people remember the seven colours of the rainbow – Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet. We’ve been given the choice of posting a single photo representing a rainbow, or seven photos depicting each […]

Weekly Photo Challenge – Off-season

Last year I took four months off work to do some serious travelling. I was in Europe for much of the time – mostly Turkey, Italy, Spain and France – with the final three weeks spent sailing around French Polynesia. This trip changed my life in so many ways. It was the reason I started […]
