Tag Archives: weekly photo challenge
I normally only post one photo for the weekly photo challenge but couldn’t resist a second one this week. There is nothing more Intricate than a spider web and this one was right outside my door this morning.
During my recent visit to Macau I stumbled across Lou Kau Mansion, an old Chinese house which was open to the public. The mansion was built around 1889 and belonged to a wealthy merchant. These beautiful Intricate tiles were on the floor and looked like they’d been there since the house was constructed. Old floor tiles always […]
I’ve just returned from a week in Shanghai, a city that is in constant Motion, even in places where you’d least expect to see much happening. From early in the morning until late into the night the beautiful parks fill with people looking for an escape from the traffic and noise of the city. They chat […]
I’m pleased that Early Bird is the theme for this week’s photo challenge as it gives me an opportunity to post a shot that I took for The Changing Seasons February series. I excluded the photo at the time as it was too dark but have since had a go at editing it with Lightroom and although […]
When I saw Afloat was the theme for this week’s photo challenge I immediately thought of a shot I’d taken earlier this week. My back door faces east and early each morning I open the door to check out the new day. Often I’m greeted by a beautiful sunrise but on this particular day there were […]
Blur is the theme for this week’s challenge and I suspect, like most photographers I have many blurry photos to choose from. I decided on this particular shot as it gives me a chance to write a little about ‘White Night’ – now a huge attraction on Melbourne’s event calendar. Melbourne’s White Night was inspired by […]
When thinking about the definition of “Ephemeral” for this week’s challenge, i.e. fleeting, transient, lasting only for a short time, it occurred to me that it is a great word to describe the opportunities we have when taking street photographs. Often, the chance for the perfect shot can be fleeting and momentary, and sometimes it’s just good luck that you release the shutter at exactly the right […]
Fresh is the theme for this week’s photo challenge. I took this shot while visiting New Delhi for a conference in 2013. A group of us took a rickshaw tour of Old Delhi and then wandered about the spice market. I came across this woman making beautiful garlands of fresh flowers.
This week we’re asked to share a group of photos where Orange is either the dominant colour, or provides a bold highlight. We’re also asked to look for different shades – bright neons, deep rusts, delicate peaches. I used this challenge as an opportunity to look through my archives from travels through Turkey, Spain and Italy last […]
Last year my daughter and I spent three weeks travelling around Turkey. We had some amazing experiences – one of the most memorable being a balloon flight over Cappadocia. As the balloons take off just on dawn we had to be up and ready to leave before 5am. Our Reward? See for yourself.
