The ringing of the bell in stormy weather

I took this particular photo on the Northern Road in Sydney, on a late afternoon when the weather was forcasted. My goal was to achieve a dark mysterious and sinister feel, using a black and white silhouette.

The little pup that had the photographers going crazy.

This little pup was very hard to resist today, many photographers had turned up to photograph a concert in Canberra but found themselves photographing this beautiful little puppy.

Sleeping puppies are like sleeping babies just adorable. There is just something special about them.

Just a thought.

The Bouganvillia, they have such vibrant colours I just could not resist taking a photo. Unfortunately I can't grow them where we live as they do not like any frost.

Stormy weather photography on an angle

 I wanted to give an uneasy feeling in the air as a storm was approaching, so I took a photograph on an angle. I then wanted to emphasize what it is like when it is going to rain. The grass appears to be vibrant green and sky becomes very dark. I gave the grass more vibrancy and both the sky and the sea darker and more ominous.

Jugglers The 3 stooges pose

This pose the 3 jugglers reminded me of the 3 stooges. They are such great light hearted entertainment.

Juggling around a tree in Canberra

I met 3 jugglers from The Fool Factory. They were very entertaining with great showman attributes. Here they were juggling around a tree and whilst juggling they were also walking around the tree at the same time. Wow that takes a lot of hand and eye co-ordination. Very tricky guys. Hope to see your another one of your acts very soon.

Photographing an alpaca in the contryside

I took this photo in the late afternoon. His name is Sanchos. He has a very sweet personality.

I used an orange filter to enhance the warm colours and a vignette to add a little extra depth to the image.

Angelic Angels

We often perceive angels to be angelic, sweet and child-like. I have given this particular sculpture a softness by using a soft blur to the image thus giving it a softness and sweetness to this angel.

Black and white photography is so nostalgic

 Cindy is a Maltese Terrier and she getting on a bit, so I decided to make a photo that reflected her age. She is a very sweet dog but is beginning to feel the pressures of getting old and gray.

kayaks all colours

 Here I found a wonderful subject of colorful kayaks, all stacked up on one another. I wanted to show the vibrancy of the boards and the grungieness of the surf culture.

A little bike with attitude

Have you ever wanted to break out, felt different or just wanted to play with the big boys. I saw this little motor scooter and just thought how quaint it was. Just standing there in amongst all the motor bikes. A little motor scooter that wasn't as big and powerful as the other bikes, but it did have a strong presence. It was holding its' own.
