From all over the world

From all over the world, they come and place their locks of love. Every lock is of a different shape, size and colour. And yet they all symbolize the one thing. The one thing that is universal in all of us. . . . .  Love. Love locks on Pont de l’Archevêché, the narrowest bridge…

The Bee

My post for the weekly photo challenge – a bee. Seriously, I had multiple attempts before I captured the bee with my point and shoot. (all the while hoping it won’t turn on me). I was inspired by the dragonfly so thought I’ll try the same. But I did not realise how close you actually…

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 : 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…
