Midweek Moment #29

Despite giving my camera a couple of outings this week, none of the photos I took jumped out at me for a ‘Midweek Moment’. So, once again, it was a last-minute job—this time in the garden at about 6:45 yesterday morning. The hot summer has taken its toll...

Midweek Moment #28

I went out with my camera during the week, but nothing I captured took my fancy for a Midweek Moment. So, this morning before school, I interrupted my son during his violin practice. He seemed annoyed at first, then bemused as to why I’d want to take photos of...

As I was preparing this week’s Midweek Moment, it struck me that although we live in a colossal city of concrete and bitumen and over 1.5 million people, we’re never far from a walk along the coast, around a lake, by the river, or through the bush. Our...

Summer and school holidays mean longer, slower days, so of an evening, I’ve been taking myself down to the beach and trying out long-shutter speeds on my camera. This, however, has been largely unsuccessful. I lost my thongs to a rogue wave on the first visit,...

Midweek Moment #23

Summery Midweek Moments from both of us today: I took this photo of a frangipani in our pool. The flower was already struggling in the heat and chlorinated water, but I still liked the photo. Maybe it’s the detail: the colour of the petals, the tiny water...

Midweek Moment #22

Welcome back to Midweek Moment 2016!  Despite the holidays and the festive atmosphere, we’ve both been reflective in our choice of photo for the week. I took my photo on our recent trip to Queensland, while on a boat out to the Great Barrier Reef. On land, the...
