I still have lots of orchids from last weekend’s Show to share. I hope you enjoy them :). I am learning more about photography and thinking about getting a macro filter (rather than a macro lens) as I love taking close ups. Any suggestions would be welcome.
I haven’t written for a while. I keep meaning to and have had lots of ideas for posts (can’t remember what they were now!)
There is a lot going on at present. I am leading two University of the Third Age courses (philosophy discussion group and learning about creativity). I have also signed up to an online photography course – Digital Photography masterclass. Hopefully in time you will see some improvement in my photos.
For now I will include a few photos I took with my iPhone – spur of the moment shots. I love to see the trees in winter with no foliage but the bright blue sky beyond.
Recently I saw a post by a fellow blogger (sorry that I can’t remember your name) but they highlighted a new app called waterlogue that automatically converts photos into watercolour style images. I am trialling a copy of it at present and having fun with it. Here is an example of what it can do :).
The software is a bit flaky (or it could be me!) and I am learning through trial and error.
I have chosen a selection of photos to show light in different forms.

At the beach this morning I saw a great candidate for this topic. It was the ripples in the sand caused by the movements of the waves. I didn’t bring my camera though!
I thought, “I know. I have a great photo of a sand dune with a unique pattern caused by the wind. I searched my photo albums and couldn’t find it. We are not talking digital here!
BUT, I did find several old photos taken in different parts of Australia over the past few decades.
I have enjoyed this topic as it led me on a journey to places archived in my memory.
This is the sort of photo I had in mind to start with 🙂 I didn’t take this one though.
