I walk my dog around my neighbourhood everyday at different times of the day – this is a delight. And I tend to take photographs on my way. I cross a bridge over a freeway – which is often busy and at a standstill. These pictures were taken on my phone – this evening I took some on my Canon – but was unhappy with the result…practice makes perfect…
Here is the dog
Not so long ago, I drove in the early morning, well not that early from Taranaki to Auckland. It took around 5 hours. The morning was misty, cinematic. I stopped and took some pictures. There are times, when I stop, look and cannot believe the landscape before my eyes. The camera allows me to record what I see.
I went to the gallery and there were objects, painting, sculptures and people – where was I to look. I was drowning,in the work it drenched me, i wanted to keep it in my brain and I wanted to keep the people there too. My camera served me well.
Back Beach – Taranaki – my favourite place to walk. On Sunday it was raining gently, little depth of field, and few people. The colours, a limited palette, the sea rugged and loud.
I removed a little of the last photograph, the smudgy bit, all the way down at the end of the image. Its blur, its colour is what I like and I wanted isolate it and to look at.
I’ve had my ups and downs.
Pergamon – I walked in and it was overwhelming, I am dwarfed. The friezes and statues, walk ways and facades, mosaics. I sighed, I looked and I photographed…..http://www.smb.museum/smb/standorte/index.php?lang=en&objID=27&p=2
When you can wander around a new city, with only excitement and a new camera – well the world is your oyster
I will not lend thee a penny.
Why then the world’s mine oyster,
Which I with sword will open.
Not a penny.
green – how do you describe colour?
Green is a color, the perception of which is evoked by light having a spectrum dominated by energy with a wavelength of roughly 520–570 nanometres. In the subtractive color system, it is not a primary color, but is created out of a mixture of yellow and blue, or yellow and cyan; it is considered one of the additive primary colors.
