|As much as I dislike animal pictures, there was beautiful light ;)|

|This next one is straight out of the camera, no photoshop at all. The yellows were amazing. Funnily enough as I was lying in the grass taking this, a wedding party walked by led by a wedding photographer who taught a class I've been doing. Small world eh?|
|I couldn't quite get this one how I wanted, even using a HDR image to keep the highlights from blowing out didn't look right. I still quite like the curves.|
|And just cos I can... this is Silvie, the kitten I'm kittensitting at the moment ;) She is as bonkers as the crazy gleam in her eye makes her look.|

|I'm getting a bit of a thing for car parks. The attendant recognised me today :p I really like the different perspectives, and also the view past the tops of the flashy store fronts, into the seedy overbelly of the city.|
|This one is a high dynamic range image made of 3 exposures to try to keep the detail in the shadows.|
|The thing I like here is the tiny red bit of plastic near the yellow line, matching the coffee cup.|

|I've been a bit photographically promiscuous today!|
|I was out taking some pictures with a mate today when we found the dead kangaroo above. I actually like the next photo better - interesting relationship between the shapes of the 2 bodies lying on the road I think. There's a thought I'm having that I can't quite put into the right words - about the human technology that is visible in the use of the camera and implied in the death of the kangaroo.|
|This grove of oak trees was nestled in a little valley - the only sound you could hear was the thud of acorns falling to the leaves.|

|There's something about the look of city streets at night in the rain, a contrast between the coldness and darkness, and the inviting gleam of lights on the wet street. There's also something about trying to shoot at 1/5 of a second with 80mm equivalent focal length ;)|

|I always find the look and feel of this kind of bark calming; an impression of age and strength.|

06 April 06I hope you'll excuse me if I stray a little today, these are much more heavily edited than usual but I had a certain feel in mind.

A few more from the weekend, file size is a bit larger than usual because the detail didn't really show up enough in this first one. I'm really enjoying grainy, crusty images lately - such a refreshing change from the whole 'perfect' thing.

|Todays photos were brought to you by the letter...|

I went up to Mt Lofty botanic gardens today - nice and cold with a bit of rain for a change ;-)
|I find it pretty difficult taking photos of animals usually, it's really hard trying to come up with an interesting composition of any kind beyond just saying 'here is this animal'.|

I've been revisiting a few pictures I took when i visited queensland a few weeks back. I am quite pleased with this first one, I liked the original image and I think I have been able to increase the drama of the clouds with this processing.

At the Adelaide botanic gardens
I took this one a few weeks ago, on Moreton island!
The sky and sea were amazing, a heavy tropical storm was coming but the sun was still hitting the sea, which was a vivid turquoise.

I was just scouting around locations for a model shoot with some friends and saw this great lighitng. Imagine this with a figure standing at the window, casting a shadow on the wall... watch this space for more!
