    Default Week of 14 November - Music - 7/53

    Nov 14 - Music - 7/53

    This drummer was in a jazz band playing at an outdoor event. I felt very self conscious standing in front of the stage to take photos. I was worried people would start throwing things. But it was good discipline to have to think about what shot I wanted and then do it, rather than just mucking around until I got a shot I liked.

    I would have liked to have gotten a bit more blur on the drumsticks. I was after a dynamic type of shot. But without a tripod, I was never going to be able to keep the rest of the shot sharp enough to make it work.

    Default Week of 21 November - Gathering - 8/53

    Nov 21 - Gathering - 8/53

    This is my favourite scene to photograph, strong sunlight in the foreground with dark brooding storm clouds gathering in the background. So wonderfully dramatic.

    Although in this case, I think that the grass in the foreground has blown out a little bit.

    Default Week of 28 November - Beyond Reach - 9/53

    Nov 28 - Beyond Reach - 9/53

    This was a hard one. I think this sculpture from the National Art Gallery captures the theme. They are forever stranded in the middle of a pond, beyond the reach of everyone except goldfish. Ok its a stretch but it's a great sculpture.

    The issue with this photo was to get a good composition, rather than any technical challenge.

    I like goats. They are great characters. Luckily, I caught this one mid-chew and was rewarded with this smiling photo.

    Default Week of 12 December - After - 11/53

    December 12 - After - 11/53

    After the flowers have bloomed, what are you left with? A lot of ugly old dead heads or a beautiful set of shooting stars.

    I think I'm getting better at converting photos to black and white. Still needs more zing though.

    December 19 - Summer - 12/53

    This was taken at the end of a beautiful summer's day at the beach. I struggle with exposure in landscape photo and I'm not sure I've gotten it right here. I love the relfections in the water.
