Sometimes, even when pulling apart old and unused yard appliances you come across something that takes your eye from a photographic perspective. That was how I felt when I saw the sunlight reflecting vivid oranges and blues in this old BBQ grill.
The grill itself isn’t a thing of beauty, but the colours of rust have always appealed to me. Photograph taken on my Huawei Mate 10.
I recently gave myself a challenge over on my Twitter account. From there, I took it to my Instagram account. The challenge was to see if using 10 different cameras would make any difference when it came to my photo quality.
This was the result of some quick macro photography experimentation today. No tripod and an unfortunate amount of wind. Still, this detail isn’t too bad. Photograph taken on my Huawei P30 Pro (no filters).
Yesterday the butterflies were plentiful and active. Today there are fewer butterflies and they’re less active. This allowed for a closer shot than yesterday’s photographs. Photograph taken on Nikon D60.
I do not know what type of bush grows this flower, but it is growing in my yard. I don’t recall planting it, so it may be a ‘weed’ or something bird brought in. Still, it’s not unattractive when it flowers. Photograph taken on Nikon D60.
Back in 2011 when I decided to shift the focus of my website to my guitar fascination (prior to 2011 I used this site for my graphic design fascination), I had a small obsession with the wonders of iOS. Today I still do. I’m not currently writing about it as much, but I realised today that last year—2014—I continued to use iOS for my social media usage and monitoring, content discovery, video editing, guitar recording, photography and a whole lot more. So as I look back on the year that was, I thought I’d use iOS to put together a homage to my version of 2014.
It’s a 15 second video. It’s going to take me longer than that to explain how it was created though. … 2014 … Instagram style
Over the last few days I’ve been posting pictures and asking questions on my Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr accounts. Of course they’ve all been guitar related questions, but they’ve been questions with reason. By posting these photos and asking these questions I’ve compiled quite the list of reasons people need multiple guitars. I now have justification for my current collection as well as future purchases. Yes! That’s how I’ve justified it in my mind at least. If you agree, you also have the benefit of this list of reasons to refer to when justifying your next intended guitar purchase.
Customs House in Brisbane is a beautiful-looking building. When inside the building, I was drawn to the shapes the ceiling and its sole hanging light made. Without knowing what you’re looking at, it’s still an interesting photograph.
