Snapshot Sunday: The Circus

Roll Up Roll Up! I took this photo of a circus tent while we were in New Zealand early in 2016. It was very early and hardly anyone about at the time. I thought a circus tent with zero activity going on was interesting photographic material. The photo came out really dark and I was not at all happy with it. I put it to one side and forgot about it until yesterday. I have played around with it and come up with this. I was rather pleased with the results.

Cee’s B&W Photo Challenge: Gates and Fences.

Gates and Fences

I had to dig deep into my archives again because the weather here is strictly for ducks only. I did not put a big toe past my front door today and the dogs not one little furry paw. They stayed curled up in their baskets instead. I longed to jump in the car and go to one of the other near or far towns for a walk and to take some new photos but it was not to be. With the bad weather and the Xmas Toy Run on it would have been very hard. Instead I have put together a mish mash of different photos of gates and fencing for this photo challenge. Some have been shown before but there are a few different ones. I hope no one finds this boring with the reruns.

The Green Canoes

While hanging around in the back alley recently I saw these canoes just sitting there. They were a long way from any water and I couldn’t help but wonder what they were doing in that back alley of the main shopping mall. Usually you see bicycles and people on skateboards and tiny scooters. They look like a couple of huge great green shoes!

Some Fun with Colour & B&W

In other words I was bored this afternoon and had nothing better to do than muck about on the computer. It has rained here all week end and I’ve hardly put a foot out the door. I did manage to get the dogs out for a short walk but we got quite wet on the way home and had to shelter under various trees and verandahs on the way home. So what did I come up with. Well I found some photos I took in a back alley way in Hobart. I’ve no idea why I took these but I thought they were interesting at the time. As I said in a previous post I simply just aim and shoot sometimes. I get an idea and try to make it happen. So today I am having a bit of fun with these pictures. I decided to see how the same shop looks in colour and black and white on this post. Here we go.

Snapshot Sunday: Everythings Coming Up Roses.

I decided to post some photos I took in the hospital gardens where I work of the roses and a few other plants. The gardens there are always lovely but the roses this year were simply stunning. I can’t say I love going to work very much but I do like the gardens and it’s always nice to take a walk around them even when I am not on duty. Here are my photos for Snapshot Sunday. It was very windy but most of these came out ok without being blurry.

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.
