365 Project: Day 15

basalt-black-and-white-columns

Day 15. These curved columns of basalt are just near the centre of the town (well, it’s called a city, but I think that’s too generous!) where I live. Thanks to Pat for the idea for this location.

[OM-D + Leica 25mm combo. Processed in Lightroom, B&W conversion in Nik Software’s Silver Efex 2… really love that program. If you see any of my shots in B&W, chances are they’ve been through SE2…]

365 Project: Day 14

Magnolia-Black-and-white

Day 14! That’s two whole weeks! Yay for me…

[I was complaining the other day that it is raining all the time, and so I never get a chance to shoot. Sharon said, “Why not shoot inside then?”… why not indeed. So while the Grand Final was on today I decided to put myself to more creative pursuits…oh and Sharon, the Swans won. Driving around looking for a magnolia tree, I was the only one on the streets. Literally (and I use that word correctly here). First time ever I think I’ve set up a shot… your thoughts?]

365 Project: Day 10

Fishing-Wynyard-Beach-Lensbaby

Day 10. Another one with some people in it, just for you Sharon and Jill. 🙂

[Doctors Rocks, Wynyard. Not a huge fan of this one, but then I suppose I won’t love them all equally. There’s just something about the colours that doesn’t work for me… what do you think? Didn’t set out to shoot this, but then, that’s becoming something of a theme. There are a couple of things I like about it – the position of the fishermen, the other people just lying on the rocks, the shape of the cloud.  Okay, I guess I don’t really mind it!]

365 Project: Day 9

Fences-Vegetation-Lensbaby

Day 9 and the show must go on… As I was putting this together, I was wondering whether I should keep these as separate shots, and thus get two days out of them! But I like them together… do you?

[Continuing yesterday’s themes of unkempt wooden structures with vegetation in varying states of dominance, and of course the second theme of just shooting what I see rather than planning ahead! Can you guess the lens? That’s right – the Lensbaby Edge 80 again…]
