Collingwood Children's Farm

The Collingwood Children’s Farm is a stone’s throw from my home and only a few kilometres from the centre of Melbourne.  The Farm was established in 1979 by a community committee and relies heavily on donations and volunteers to run. 387 more words

It’s been weeks since I posted a photograph so I decided to take advantage of the great weather and a day off work and wandered about central Melbourne taking some black and white shots. 20 more words

We’ve been asked to incorporate glass into today’s image.  It can be a window, a mirror, a drinking glass, or even sunglasses. I wandered around my neighbourhood looking for the perfect shot. 70 more words

Today we’ve been asked to provide a shot of something that we treasure. While I treasure my daughters more than anything in the world they didn’t seem the right choice for this challenge.   80 more words

Photography101 - weekend 3 - hone your camera eye

As the title suggests we’re encouraged to practice some of the techniques we’ve been learning throughout the month. This week I’ve played with black and white, colour and movement, depth, and capturing architecture from many different perspectives.

Marvellous Melbourne

A few weeks ago I read an article in The Age titled “Inside story of how Melbourne became marvellous all over again” http://www.theage.com.au/victoria/inside-story-of-how-melbourne-became-marvellous-all-over-again-20141031-11d7f9.html

The article talked about the Melbourne CBD’s astonishing renaissance over the past twenty years and used some pretty convincing data as evidence – an increase in residents from 2,100 to 116,431; of dwellings 685 to 28,099; of outdoor cafes 107 to 534; and of food and beverage outlets 722 to 1,978. 581 more words

Photography101 - Day 13 - Moment

Today we are asked to show a fleeting moment in our photograph.  This one was taken at the night market in Melbourne.  The colourful costume combined with the movement of the dance provided a perfect ‘moment’ for me to capture.
