I was looking out our window this afternoon and spotted this fence panel that looks like a smiley face. I hadn’t done a photo yet for today so when Brylee went to bed I went out and took some shots. The first ones I took were just of the fence but I like this one because the green trees in the background look kinda like hair for the…fence-face? Anyway, probably the weirdest post yet on day 295 but it’s done… Only 70 days to go!
This is a shot up the wall toward the ceiling and my favourite feature of our house. We have a high tongue and groove ceiling in our little beach cottage and when we moved in the lounge was pretty badly lit but now we have a total of 13 bulbs lighting the room including these up-lights. We put just them on at night and it looks pretty cool as they light up the natural wood and give the house a pretty cosy feel combined with the fire going. Anyway, a pretty windy night for day 281 but all snuggled up and warm in bed so I’m happy. Night!
We are house-sitting in a pretty flash gated community for the next month (while we work on our house) and I went for a wander down to the lake with my camera tonight. I was trying to get the reflections from the houses across the water but it’s a bit windy and the results weren’t so great… I turned around to walk back down the path and thought that this little scene would make a good photo. And the long exposure lit up the scene enough to see the detail in the trees behind so I’m happy with the result 🙂 Day 194 done!
Today is kinda a bit of a downturn after the photos yesterday that I was quite happy with. But I guess that’s the way with a 365 project – some you will really like, some you wont be so excited about. Anyway, this is a feijoa tree that grows just outside out kitchen and I have seen before but never taken photos of. I didn’t realise that the fruit grew in winter but it’s pretty much the middle of winter and the fruit are still growing away. And it was the coldest morning today so I thought they would have been killed off by now. Odd… Well, that’s it for day 185!
I was driving home this afternoon and drove past the local cricket/football grounds. There are leaves everywhere and the afternoon sun was giving them an awesome glow so I got home, fed Brylee and we bundled up and went for a walk to talk some photos – even ended up watching some football as well. I discovered yesterday that if I use the 2 sec shutter delay and have the bracket exposure setting on, it will take all three photos after the 2 seconds. I had avoided the shutter delay before as I thought I would have to take 3 separate photos and that would take ages but happy to discover I don’t… Add that one to the “new knowledge” box :-). Day 182 down – over the halfway mark tomorrow!! Woo hoo!
Today I got home early so decided to head down to the river to have a look. I had an idea for a photo under the bridge but got distracted with this odd little bridge thing so will save the other photo for later. I took a few photos but went with this one because I liked the colours of the moss and the clarity of the wire on the fence. Done and dusted for day 178!
The title really says it all… There are tea cups, they are coloured, and there are three of them. These are my Mum’s tea cups and I have seen them before but never really thought of photographing them. I was over there tonight and saw them so decided to try some photos. The background was quite bright with the flash so I tried to de-saturate it and was quite pleased with the result. Day 158 out of the way, only 207 days to go. On second thoughts, I should have waited for a leap-year to do this project.. Would only have 206
days to go. Hmmmm…
I’m watching the Blues vs. Chiefs game tonight with my brother and went for a wander at half-time to find something to take a photo of for today. I spend longer cleaning the guitar (shows how much use it gets now) than actually taking the photo but I like the rich colours and the end result. But that’s enough writing for day 154 because I’m back to watching the game… Go the Chiefs!!
