CB&W: Letters W or X

The theme foe Cee’s Black & White Photography Challenge this week is Letters W or X. I didn’t have anything that could do for X, so I’ve tried to double up for W. As in, one photo with two W’s in it. So …. here is a winding dirt road through the desert of Wadi Rum in Jordan! One of my favourite places on earth – it’s a landscape photographer’s dream! Continue reading “CB&W: Letters W or X”

CFFC: All One Colour

Here’s my submission for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: All One Colour. I had to go with blue, purely because it’s my favourite colour. This photo was taken on a photographic day trip during my visit to Cape Town in August 2015. I was standing at the lighthouse at the Cape Point, looking back towards the mountainous shore. The lesson, for this shot, from the photographer who accompanied us on the day was how to get away from AWB and manually adjust our white balance. Continue reading “CFFC: All One Colour”

CFFC: Isolated Subjects

Hello all! I’m still here! I haven’t gone and done and disappearing act again like I did after last year’s A-Z 🙂 But I am struggling with finding time to devote to writing and reading … and I envisage it’ll remain a struggle this month as I grapple with some major projects at work. So for the duration of May I may be sporadic with posting. Having said that, I couldn’t let Cee’s latest Fun Foto challenge pass by without submitting a photo. The theme is Isolated Subjects and I had a photo that I thought fit well. Continue reading “CFFC: Isolated Subjects”

CB&W: Letters S or T

Time for another of Cee’s Black and White Photography Challenges! This week is looking at things starting with the letters S and/or T. And I have a submission for both …  Continue reading “CB&W: Letters S or T”

CFFC: Sky

I was super excited to see Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week had the theme of “sky”. Seriously, if it’s possible to have an addiction to photographing sunsets – then I have it. I was looking through my photos and there must be hundreds of photos of them. Now, I realise the theme this week doesn’t specify “sunset sky” – any sky will do. But if I start including every shot I have of the sky … we’ll all be here a very, very long time. And I know you are all busy people with lives outside the blogosphere. So I will resist the temptation to flood your day with a million skies and give you a few. Okay, quite a few. Feel free to let me know which are your favourites! Continue reading “CFFC: Sky”

CB&W: Letters Q and R

The theme this week for Cee’s Black & White Photography Challenge is something beginning with Q and/or R. I’ve opted to submit a photo for each … I know, pretty daring. What can I say? I like to live on the edge. Continue reading “CB&W: Letters Q and R”

CFFC: Winter – Water

As soon as I saw that the theme for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge was Winter – Water I knew exactly what I shot I wanted to submit. This photo was taken just before sunrise at St James Beach near Cape Town, South Africa in August 2015. It’s one of my favourite photos taken that day … and it ticks the boxes for both water and winter in one shot!  Continue reading “CFFC: Winter – Water”

CB&W: Letters O or P

Well, I haven’t done one of these for a while but I’ve been dying to get back into it. So here goes! This week’s photo challenge for Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge is the letters O or P. I’m going with O … for Opera House. My home town of Sydney has a pretty iconic and certainly unique looking opera house. Continue reading “CB&W: Letters O or P”

CB&W: hiding or camouflaged

This week’s theme for Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge is … hiding or camouflaged. Those who have read some of my travel posts will know that I love South Africa and the wildlife encounters to be had in the magnificent Kruger National Park. Part of the thrill of a safari is finding the animals … it’s just incredible how difficult they can be to spot! I’ve converted two of my photos from my latest trip into black and white for submission to this challenge …  Continue reading “CB&W: hiding or camouflaged”

Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 22 – Group

Time for a new theme for Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge … this time it’s Group. I won’t lie, when I first saw the theme I was thinking ” I don’t have any group shots!”. You see, my first thought on seeing the word “group” was a photo of a group of people. I have a thing about people photos … I just don’t like taking them. I don’t know why. I just want to photograph landscapes and wildlife 🙂   Continue reading “Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 22 – Group”
