The Things We Do For Our Blogs!

I was going through my photos the other day. I had such a back log it was ridiculous. I discovered what I think is a bit of a gem amongst them. Its actually taken by my anaesthetist! With a bit of cropping and editing I think it turned out fairly well!

So here is my husband and I meeting our newest addition for the first time in the operating theatre! I think its a great photo. What do you think?

Thanks Anaesthetist!…boy, the things we do for our blog.

Using My Phone to Get Creative

One of the great things about a new baby is the inevitable desire to photograph every thing that happens and every detail to remember forever.

From a photography perpective it has renewed my desire to look for interesting images and shapes to capture. I found myself sitting with little “E” and watching the goings on around me. I may only have my Galaxy and Snapseed but its enough to get a few good, or at least interesting, images a day.

Here is one of little “E”.

He is so tiny at the moment. I want to remember that detail forever,  it will last such a short time.

Another random photo.

I took of my older son W. He was dressed up as a fairy doctor and something in the composition of this photo appealed to me. Its a rubbish photo without the filter but it becomes abstract enough with it to focus on the composition over the content.

Stills of Summer 6

A different jetty. This time I had to zoom. This is the extent of my zoom. I was a million miles away. I was impressed that it still produced a clear image that froze the jumpers.

You can still see the splash from the previous jumper. The mother in me says that kid needs talking to about safety. The photographer in me says I should talk to them about jumping in synchronisation.

A day in the life of a river jetty

Here are another few of the photos I have been taking recently in Waikerie in the Riverland. This jetty got quite a workout in the 2 hours I was at the riverfront for lunch! Probably because it was a GLORIOUS day! Perfect for a bit of nothing.

I am… enjoying the sun.
