Missed the focus. Kicking myself as I loved this shot.
It was maybe the ten. millionth. time. (Mr BB is so prone to exaggeration!) that I asked to stop and take a picture of something. Some things you just have to stop for. Such as a pic of the water from the old rickety bridge … you know the sort that has no sides and the planks rattle when you drive over? Well, just when I was thinking we would probably be shot at then buried in a shallow grave by the fearsome looking locals who were out in force fishing with their six dawgs (each!) and their monster 4WD’s with huge spotties and (oh, pardon my sweeping generalisations) but as they turned as one to stare at us, it just so happened that the song audible from the window I was hanging a camera out of, was “It’s alright to be a redneck” by Alan Jackson*.
Wasn’t that perfectly opportune?
*(I offer no explanation of why I own that on CD. Some things are better left a mystery!)
Something strikes me as delightfully Winnie-the-Pooh-ish about this scene.
I *adore* this old car.
Some time ago I was off exploring with my camera (so I thought!), and came across this treasure. As it happened, I had my camera bag, a bunch of lenses, spare batteries… but my camera was home on the table. Crushing!
This was worth driving back for. Just to stand and imagine the history of this old beauty…
It might not actually be that. It could be for yowies. :D
Curtis falls, Mt Tambourine.
Rainforest sights are soul nurturing.
(okay, NOT the leeches and ticks, but they are such a tiny percentage of the landscape! )
We’ve been on the ocean. Boating, friends, is fun. :D
they’d have eyes like these…
Today, our New Year’s Day, was delicious.
Bowl of cherries for brekker. (Could only be improved by the addition of some King Island Dairy triple brie.. but you can’t have everything.)
A trip to Springbrook National Park to see the natural arch. (Here, it most definitely would have been improved if I’d brought my tripod, and someone to carry it! Must have groaned over not having it about.. oh.. a hundred times.)
Being in the Gold Coast vicinity, we hit the beach. About half an hour of the beach completely fulfils my beachy needs, and I left Mr BB and the crowd, to read my non-school fluffy chic lit book and eat slightly melty Lindt.
That, bloggy friends, is a perfect start to the year.
Hope yours is as glorious.
Hello Bloggy friends,
Would you be so kind as to cast your artiest eyes over these two pics, and give me your thoughts on the composition, specifically, the issues of cropping and focal point.
Here is Blossy loving Angus. I don’t mind this shot, but something about it doesn’t feel right.
After cropping I think it has more interest, but.. does it change the subject from Blossy to Angus, or does it make it .. feel like it has no subject at all because Blossy is sharp and Angus isn’t? I feel that cropping as I have makes Angus the subject (therefore he should be in focus..?)
If you’d share your thoughts on this one, I’d be grateful!
