Bad Photo Monday: Bad Photos at the Cricket

This bad photo is one of those ones that I kept because of the subject matter even though as a photo it is not very good. It was taken at a Hurricanes match that I went to with my friends Allyson and Matt a couple of years ago.  Ally asked me to take a photo of her with Ricky Ponting but unfortunately where they were standing the floodlights really messed up the picture.

Bad Photo Monday: Doing things by Halves

I am posting my bad photo for Monday early in case I run out of time tomorrow. Having a visitor and going out more often has enabled me to take more photos in different places but I have not had as much time for posting anything. Today I saw a beautiful vintage car from the 1950’s. I didn’t get a good look at it because I was unaware that it was coming around the corner until Phillip called me when he suddenly spotted it. I was still taking photos of St Lukes. I whirled around and got the camera ready. I managed to frame the car very nicely but my camera has slow shutter speed so I only got half a car. The results were a huge disappointment. I went back to the main street hoping to spot the car parked somewhere but never saw it again.

Snapshot Sunday: There’s a bear in there!

While out for a drive on Sunday I stopped in a shop in Richmond Tasmania called “The Puzzle People” They sell jigsaw puzzles and similar items. They were kind enough to allow Toby and Teddy into their shop so we all trooped in and had a look around. I ended up buying two very nice puzzles to do in my spare time once we have moved house. In the doorway of the shop I could not avoid spotting this huge pink teddy bear.

Bad Photo Monday: Rear End of a Chook

Hens behind bars.

The catholic school in Geeveston has a couple of “chooks” and I thought it would be nice to get a photo for my animals and birds collection. This one is a pretty bird but did not look great through the wire fence so I moved closer to make the wire disappear. (David showed me this trick when we used to photograph trains through wire fences and also at the Formula One Grand Prix where you are separated from the cars by safety fencing.)

However, chooky didn’t want her picture taken and showed what she thought of the idea by turning her back on me.

She didn’t want to have her picture taken.
