I left Cindy inside so that I could photograph the house from across the road. She was not happy about it.
This photo was taken last month when I visited the brewery with my friends Gillian and Bruce.
There is a lot of cricket played in Australia in January. There is a Test Match early in the month, One Day Internationals and the domestic Big Bash competition is in full swing. This photo was taken last summer when I attended a Hobart Hurricanes match at Bellerive.
Not a total disaster of a photo but I was not planning on a gull flying by as I pressed the shutter. Some editing will be required.
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.
