The changing season at this time of the year bring lovely warm and colourful foliage and light to the streets. Blues seem more vibrant against the orange,red and amber leaf colouration. there is plenty of that in my neighbourhood.
I was inspired by a wall of reddening Ivy with pink and purple hues and set off to shoot it.
I thought it would make a nice portrait background and shot it as fir a subject was in the foreground with the idea that I would get some nice bokeh. The result was to look for more images that would lend to nice bokeh.
Here is the original wall I spotted. If you click on it you will go to a gallery of the rest of the day.
These would make spectacular wall décor, giving a nice warm, calming, feeling to a room, office or foyer. Done in a large format they will be a very impressive addition.
Back on the Composite imagery course. Here’s one I’ve been working on. I call it “African Dog watching the Blind Zebra”. The Beast is actually old and blind in one eye, you can imagine the Wild Dog thinking “move on old timer, you’ve earned your rest.All elements were photographed by myself and cobbled together using a variety of techniques.
I took my boat out fishing, but it was bit slow as the wind was up and the bay was quite choppy, so no brag reports (2 in the bag only, tasty Thai style curry – yum).
I did take my camera out which was a boon. I ended up drifting through a yacht race in the afternoon as the sun set over Melbourne. Over an hour or so I captured a collection of images of the yachts coming and going with the city skyline and the great expanse of Port Phillip as back drops.
Hope you like and comment. Click on any image to see the gallery full size.- Enjoy.
A nice Surprise was waiting at Phillip Island today. Classic Car racing. The field had Chryslers, Fords and GMH vehicles in the race I caught through the fence. The Canon 5Dsr was great. The extra 30M pixels allowed some serious cropping to make the images since I only had 200mm lens at hand at the time.
