Bad Photo Monday : Ghost Ship

Ghost Ship revealed!

I haven’t done one of these in a while. I guess my photography is improving so I’m not taking as many bad pictures. I want to keep this going though because it is a good laugh and it’s fun to do.

I was wandering around in Launceston one day when I came to the river Tamer. I thought I would take some photos there. There were a few boats and things but most were too far away from me so I played about with the zoom lens hoping to get a better shot. Of course with my little camera the photos come out blurry if objects are too far away like the boat I was trying to photograph. I ended up with a very out of focus shot of some sort of boat. I’ve no idea what it even is.

Looking at it today makes me think of a ghost ship. Was this to head down the river and out to sea never to be seen again. What creepy mystery lays behind the disappearance of this small boat and it’s crew? It certainly looks like it has been swallowed up in a mysterious mist on the Tamer.

I didn’t bother walking around to get a better photo. I was too lazy  for that so headed back to the city streets to look for a café so I could get a cup of tea.

Bad Photo Monday: Christmas Lights

Christmas Lights

The other night I was invited to visit friends  to see their Christmas lights so naturally I wanted to take some pictures. I have not photographed anything like this before and it was something of a learning experience. I learned that using flash would wash out the lighting effects  in some cases but that not using it would not guarantee a good result.

As it is summer here it is daylight until nearly nine at night so we had to wait quite some time till it was dark enough to see the lights properly. Unfortunately for me I don’t see very well in the dark so I had to be very careful walking around the perimeter of the display. I also found it hard to see the controls of my camera in  the dark. Despite all this I did get a few pictures I liked. This is one that I didn’t like so much and it would have been deleted but for Bad Photo Monday.

Bad Photo Monday:Bitumen

Well we had been on our walk and I had been stopping quite a lot to take photos of the roses and other flowers for a post I wanted to do. The dogs had been quite patient waiting for me to take my photos. We were walking through the carpark on our way to the front of the building when Teddy suddenly pulled sharply on his lead. You can see his little head in the photo. I was still holding my camera so I ended up with this shot of the bitumen carpark complete with bird poop.

I am blaming Teddy for this one!

Bad Photo Monday: Level Up!

Well you can see what’s gone wrong here.

I was having a doll photo session today and trying out a new location in front of a gold curtain in the computer room. Most photos went well as I posed the dolls on the window frame but for a couple I put them on top of the printer. The printer is perfectly level but as I’m not keen on getting down on my knees so much now I bent down a bit to take them. I sometimes have a bit of a problem with  holding the camera straight and this position made that problem much worse. I was pretty annoyed as correcting the problem in the photo editor would have meant Penny lost her feet which would also spoil the picture. I might have to just do something arty with it.

For those who want to know Penny is a Barbie friend called Summer from the Fashion Fever era 2004-2007.

Bad Photo Monday: Room with part of a view.

I think I took this photo at random in Penguin when I was there in August. It’s just one of those random photos I take sometimes. I don’t know if anyone else does this but sometimes I just point and shoot. I see an image in my head of what I want to capture at the time but it doesn’t quite come off as a photo. This one shows a darkened room with a cheery veiw of the sea out the window. I don’t know what I expected but I didn’t get it.

Bad Photo Monday: There Is Always Someone Who Isn’t Looking At The Camera

The larger group you get together for a photo the more chances that at the crucial moment someone will do something to mess it up. Even the dolls don’t always cooperate.
