Day 244: (backlog) Streaks of light

Some shots over the next few days, from my course – Imaging assignment. We were given words and had to take journalist shots to represent these words. Enjoy.  This one is : blur a car, slow shutter speed love the lights left behind from a bus.


26 days of hiatus

Day 243: Ok I am well and truely behind in my blogs, my apologies. I will be playing catch up, as have been taking photo’s all this time, just haven’t had the time to blog them. The juggling act of mother, wife, housekeeper and now student has taken a toll and this blog site was the first thing to give.  It’s times like these we need ice cream to motivate us – so here is my next photo – copenhagen icecream window – devil chocolate for me please!

Fairy Shell Garden

Day 242: A day of outdoors, green recycling all the tree branches to the tip today. We then went down to the beach for a bit of exercise and fresh air.  We ended up walking quiet a way. The motivation – collecting mini shells for a fairy shell garden – my daughter’s idea – how sweet. Here’s the collection.

Friday Flop

Day 240: A breather today. Coffee with a girlfriend and stroll around shops for art supplies. Nice to stop and chill a bit today. Photos of reflections today I noticed in my apple icon on computer screen – love depth of field.

Freezing motion

Day 238: Back to college today. Feel Iike I’m an artist – three hours of drawing – and all the different types of pencils we need.  Our discussion over group assignment confirms – I still have a brain and am on the right track – phew! We had imaging this evening and DSLR came in handy. Taking photo’s of movement and creating a blur (far left)!

Blogs to the side

Day 237: I’ve been really slack on getting my blogs up and am pre-occupied studying. Haven’t even been running either – there goes all that training and fitness.  I can feel the middle bulge sneaking back on!  I’m occupied with paper – yes PAPER.  The textures, prints and recycling it.  I found a great little paper arty shop in my local shopping strip – yeah!  I’ve also been to op shops looking for old newspaper prints and found this lovely handmade box  – WHY?  – you might ask – well I have to make a book from scratch and hence – I need a cover, inside pages and I’m going with a recycling them!

Brain explosions

Day 236: Graphic design is filling my head. I feel like I’m having mini brain explosions with ideas popping in at any given time. Creativity has taken over.  We are talking about book binding and typography, so thought this image was fitting, found this old poetry book in an op shop, beautifully embossed cover.
