I like old glass just a bit too much:  see more of it here: http://lightswimming.com/tag/old-glass/

Anzac Day

Anzac stood, and still stands, for reckless valour in a good cause, for enterprise, resourcefulness, fidelity, comradeship, and endurance that will never own defeat.

The Buderim Studio

Above: The freakish looking “bat plant”

My parents have an extensive tropical garden on a steeply sloping block, at their house at Buderim.  It is their recreation (seems like a lot of hard work to me!) and their pride and joy.  It really is of show /”open garden” quality, though they don’t open it for show (except for a few flower entries in the local garden club show).

When I first bought my DSLR I spent a weekend learning to use it in their garden and I have shot there regularly since.  Here are a few pictures from the Easter weekend:

Silhouettes, Limestone Park

I shot some action pictures for friends early yesterday morning at Limestone Park.   The early light (zero cloud) and heavy dew made for some interesting conditions.

I don’t take all that many photos of people, but was happy with how most of them turned out.

I will keep the portrait shots for them rather than post them on the interweb thingy, but I liked these silhouette shots enough to share:

Yes, sometimes there are people…. (Part 2)

Darn people keep getting in my shots . . . :)

A continuation of this series, see the previous post here —> Yes, sometimes there are people ….

Reflections (the artwork is "Reach Up to the Universe, Dotted Pumpkins" by Yayoi Kusama)
Busy busy busy (the artwork is "The Obliteration Room" by Yayoi Kusama)

I hope you get the sense of ‘chaos’ from this photo – complete with the lens flare from the low, bright lighting – that’s the mood I was trying to capture.  Which is a nice contrast to this next one:

Drawing room
Rainbow connection

I like how people are a feature in most of these pics, but not the main feature – just the style which I like.

These photos are all taken at GoMA, and you can see my other related posts GoMA turns 5 and Cloisonné by following those links.

I’ll finish with one of my favourite things – silhouettes:
