Photo 101: Architecture and Monochrome

Some photos for today’s theme of “architecture”. I didn’t have any time to take any new photos for the assignment so I am falling back on earlier ones. Clearly, there’s quite a number to choose from for me so here are a few of my favourites.   The last part of the assignment called for…

Photo 101 : A pop of colour

For today’s photo, I have chosen the red poppies at the base of the remembrance tree of the 39th battalion. In the background, is the sculpture of the Driver by C S Jagger. I wanted to capture both the poppies and the sculpture and so had to get this photo from a very low point…

Photo 101 : Mystery

Jumping straight on to the next topic for photo101. This time is on Mystery (and also lighting during the golden hour). Firstly, mysterious rock art from Uluru in Australia. Some of it is known to us today as their dreamtime stories (as told by an elder from the Anangu tribe) but a lot of it…

Do we have all the colours???

Street art of Hosier Lane in Melbourne doing their bit to colour our world for this weeks photo challenge of Roy G. BIV. Hmm . . . I think all the colours of the rainbow are covered here. ( I meant the photos!) Weekly Photo Challenge : ROY G BIV

Photo 101 : Warmth

Challenge for today is Warmth. As it is winter here, capturing an image of warmth using the sun as a source is a bit harder than usual. So I have done my own interpretation and took this photo earlier this evening. Here’s my favourite porcelain candle holder from Mont St Michel.   And here are…

Photo 101 : Natural World

In an effort to notice the tiny details for today’s assignment, I took some close up photos out in my front yard. I am liking this assignment and although I do not get great shots always, sometimes the photo produces some interesting details which I would not have noticed before.   And as per my…

Photo 101 : Big

Today’s photo assignment is BIG. For once, I wish I could drive out to the Big Lobster in South Australia (considered the pick of Australia’s Big Things) and submit that for my assignment. However, my day job really prevents me from doing anything crazy like that. So instead, I give you the Shrine of Remembrance…

Photo 101 : Connect

Today’s word is connect and I totally agree with the suggestion that connect is used a lot in the social media space. So, I wanted to suggest something different and took this photo for today’s word connect. It’s a photo of Windsor Train station in Melbourne. Suburban trains whether above ground or under are ubiquitous…

Tulips in Off Season

This weeks photo challenge presented an interesting twist with the theme off-season. This is what I came up with. Amongst all the flowers, bulbs and seeds, we found these at the Bloemenmarkt (the floating flower market) in Amsterdam. So, for the tulip fanatics, we can now get tulips all year round!
