Mount Lofty, Adelaide, South Australia

I stood waiting for the sun to set. As it did my fingers froze and the sunset was not outstanding. A few images salvaged. Ironically, the yellow of the sun reminds me of the fire that waited for me at home.

Backlighting using the sun

The sun is bright and harsh here. The middle of Winter, it casts long, dark shadows across every subject. I decided to work with it. Its intensity is great for backlighting flowers and the daffodils have been confused into thinking its Spring by a burst of warm weather.

Over the Back Fence

Recently I have been outside enjoying the last days of Summer where I live in South Australia. I have been noticably absent, but I can’t appologise for it. I decided to tear myself away and come inside long enough to share with you one of the incredible sunsets that have been keeping me away from I AM.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Silhouette

I tried to think of an interesting silhouette that you don’t see everyday. As I looked up at my family reroofing our pergola I decided that the structure and the sun would make an interesting shot. I like it. I hope other people do too.

I am… enjoying the long weekend away

My husband is a teacher. This weekend he had to write school reports which is always very hard for him with two little people that want his attention more often than not. So I took them away to Waikerie in the Riverland. I couldn’t take many photos because my iPhone was going flat and I had forgot my charger, but today I knew I was coming home and only needed enough charge for an emergency call in case of disaster so I took a few before I left. I really noticed that some sort of zoom lense would have been useful, but I never get sick of the back of my son’s head and you don’t need to zoom on that, heheh.

I also put in another photo of W sitting. I had a closer look and I loved it.

I am… at the playground

I took the boys to the playground on the way home today. It was a consolation really, we had been going to meet people and we had a car disaster so it was the playground on the way home or nothing. They didn’t mind too much. I, of course, whipped out old trusty and started taking photos…

It’s hard to get a good shot when you can hardly see the screen.

I’m pretty sure there would be a fairly strict composition rule about not having a great big whopping line through someone’s head. oh well?!
