I guess the only thing I really miss a lot since moving here and especially since the lockdown began is taking photos in a variety of locations. I like to photograph buildings, ships, trains and events but there are no events now. There are no public buildings in Sisters Beach except the shop, the fire station and the toilet block. I’m not quite desperate enough to photograph the loos yet but it might happen at some point. We do have a lot of interesting houses and Naomi and I have both photographed some of them but they are people’s homes, you can’t be too intrusive.
I do a lot of doll photography, dolls are people substitutes who stand where you want them to stand and don’t ask for a model release. Apart from that my photos are tending to be more nature and art. I do more photo editing and playing around with filters and effects.
I have always liked photographing reflections and my walk on Friday provided some nice ones. I really like the partly sunny, partly cloudy conditions and I actually haven’t edited these all that much as I didn’t feel they needed any arty effects.
In this last one it’s hard even for me to tell which is real and which is a reflection and I was there!
