Odds and Ends

I haven’t posted for awhile, busy with work and life. So this is some odds and ends. Two pastel paintings I have one recently and two images. I like the colours and textures in the photos, however the focus isn’t quite right. I’m going to repeat the experiment. Bless soy milk, oil and food colouring! This week I was taught by a friend how to add colour to sections of photos. I’m going to play some more with this. The gravestone and ANZAC poppies was taken awhile ago at North cemetary. Perfect image to practise on…I like the effect even if little clichéd. I’m planning on playing with black n white and small bits of colour some more and have a list of ideas!

Now off for a whirlwind research trip! Enjoy 🙂


Aramoana is one of my favourite place. I try and go out there at least once a month. Last week I went for walk along the beach at low tide. There was a small octupus washed up which made for some interesting photos. There is also a lovely walkway though the playground that ends up with lovely view of the surrounding hills. I’m thankful I live so close to such a beautiful part of New Zealand.


Fruity remains

I had a wee gathering for my birthday.  The remains of a fruit platter and the scraps made for some interesting photos. Below are the remains of an avocado, a mango ( I swear) and various other fruits. Enjoy!

University is back and last week was frantic as I got used to being back tutoring etc … faster pace of life. I have less time for photography 😦 I’m aiming to take photos once a week and update here on Sundays. I now have a flash unit to play with for awhile …more fun things to learn. Yay!

I brought an awesome second-hand book full of 60s pulp covers (the books not the awesome Brit band!). I’m going to try make some of my own. I love retro goodness.

These four images are from the washing line this morning…playing again 🙂
