This is the glass from the door to our room and it looks quite cool with the light from the lounge coming through at night… I’ve been meaning to take a photo of it for a while but keep forgetting then remembered it again when I was walking around looking for a photo tonight. Way too tired so off to bed now! Day 313 done 🙂
I’m still up in Rotorua and we went for a look around this afternoon. I haven’t been here in years apart from a brief stop on the way through last year so was keen to explore and it seems like a pretty cool place. Way too late (technically the next day by now) so off to a well-deserved sleep on day 291.
I was really struggling to find something to take a photo of so when I opened the cupboard and saw a wine glass I got it out. Inspired by a blog I follow (http://jljfoto.wordpress.com/2011/09/11/resonate/) I decided to put some water in it and take a few shots. It wasn’t really happening for me so I thought I would try some shots with food colouring and luckily we had some. Photoshop wasn’t working for some reason so I had had to use Picnik and tried out the collage option as it was what I wanted to do in Photoshop. I actually quite like the result though and could see it hanging on a wall somewhere… Maybe one day. Anyway, that’s the shot for day 255!
We broke a mirror yesterday and I saw all the broken pieces this afternoon when I was walking out the door to take a photo. I thought that it might look cool with the reflection of the field behind our house so I took a piece out and played around with it while trying not to cut myself. And here are the results for day 235! I like the first better but included the second as it looks kinda like eyebrows so made me laugh 🙂
I was at my parents tonight and looking around for something to take a photo of when I saw a jar full of these glass stone things… I set up then poured the stones over the table and snapped away. I tried shooting at f/4.5 but didn’t like the results so tried again at f/7.1 and the results were more pleasing. I kinda like this shot with the green stone in focus and the rest out of focus but still sparkling… That’s it for day 216!
7:10 am in winter is quite early to be wandering around with a camera looking like a creeper but that was me this morning… I have been driving past the Art Gallery on my way to work this week and thought it would make a good photo. This morning I left a little bit early and took my camera and tripod with me. There were a lot of people coming and going as the Gallery is pretty busy post-earthquake and I didn’t really have a huge amount of time so had to be quick. I had also forgotten my remote trigger so the shot wasn’t as good as I would have liked but it will do the trick for day 173. Three photos taken from a tripod at f/10. Learnt a few things though so was worth the effort 🙂
