Alduin

When I purchased The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim I got this very detailed model of Alduin, the primary antagonist through the main plotline of the game. In light of the Shadows & Silhouettes ABC Open theme, I was wandering through the house looking for things that would make a good silhouette. I think you can …

Every Child Is…

We took little Ivan outside for some photos today, since he’s over 6 months old now and growing up so fast. We put him down on his play mat, and a couple of leaves blew onto it from the trees over the road. He was absolutely fascinated by the way they moved around in the …

First Colour Shots from the 645N

So the other day I mentioned I had some colour films to develop from my Pentax 645N. After a week’s turn-around, I finally have the slides. I considered these rolls as tests, so there’s not really interesting content, and I have a bit to learn about shooting medium format (depth of field being one thing …

Exploring Isaac Volume 01

Note: This is first in a series of posts I’m re-doing to bring them up to a new standard I’ve set myself for these “random drive” posts. They will now follow a particular format, with more emphasis on the photos themselves, and less emphasis on the drive. All of my random drive posts will progressively …

Revisiting Old Work Part 1

As part of my short term goal of completely re-doing all of my social media and art website profiles, I’ve been spending some time going through all the photos I’ve ever taken, and picking out ones that I’ve previously not published, or have published without giving much thought to post processing, and bringing them all …

Mt Coot-tha Botanic Gardens

Botanical gardens are great places for taking photos. There’s never a shortage of interesting subjects, both plants and animals. Depending on the popularity of the gardens the animals are normally quite well accustomed to people, allowing you to get closer to them than you normally could. This gallery features some of my best shots from …
