Monday Murals

Street Murals - Provocative, Clever, Creative but always interesting. And another favourite mural here in Melbourne. Street art makes the boring neighbourhood scene fun even if a little creepy. Murals at a fish and chip shop and railway subway I found Sami's blog and her Monday Mural linky party via Suvi today - funny how… Continue reading Monday Murals

Weekly Photo Challenge – Forces of Nature

In response to The Daily Post's weekly photo challenge: "Forces of Nature."

In Australia, a country aged by the wind, sun and sea, we see many examples of nature's work.

Snappy H’appy Photo Challenge Week 2 – HDR and Saturation

HDR - filter. Do you use it?

Employing it with some photos in my library did not work. Subjects looked over bleached, or suddenly developed a halo, however it did successfully bring out the features that were normally darkened.

Daily Post Photography Challenge – Object

The Daily Post challenge encourages us to photograph one tangible object, being conscious of Aperture, composition, focus and depth of field. Furthermore, the post tells us some photographs, like portraits, focus on individuals, while still-life moments capture the beauty (and often treasured stories) of belongings and found objects. I had already been experimenting with aperture… Continue reading Daily Post Photography Challenge – Object
