Photography Spotlight #6 Butterflies

While i was in Australia i went up to Kuranda and visited the Butterfly sanctuary. It was a great place to practise photographing butterflies as there were so many, all over the place. I got some great pictures and this is my Favourite one. I love the contrast between the red of the butterfly and the wooden bench.

Photography Spotlight #5 A Day in the life of Alex

For this Photography Spotlight i wanted to capture what my current life looks like on a daily basis.

While blog hopping i found this post using the Ali Edwards idea of documenting a day in your life. You can find the instructions for the the series here  and the Gallery of posts hereAli Edwards has large range of journalling products and just before left to travel i started to keep a Project Life book of past travels and my life. It was far to bulky to continue on the road and the journalling cards would be tricky to keep and send home and then put in order. So i have shelved that project for my return to the UK. When i get back i will try and use my travel journals, Facebook, this blog and all the other note keeping methods to make some sort of entries for the years i have been away.

But decided to use the Ali Edwards idea of capturing photos of different parts of your day. I have done this before but as my life has changed massively since then i wanted to do it again. I forgot to take many pictures during the day like a picture of my lunch (didn’t really want to look a like a crazy person on my first day at this school, lol). I will probably aim to do this again in a couple of months to see what has changed.  Continue reading “Photography Spotlight #5 A Day in the life of Alex”

Photography Spotlight – Doors

I find doors very intriguing, they ask lots of questions.

What’s behind me? Where do i go? Am i locked? Who lives in a house with this style of door?

I think it’s the teacher in me always questionng and encouraging ideas from the smallest seeds. Pictures of doors are a great tool for that and i often give children a picture of a door to think about what is on the other side.

Here are some of my favourite doors i’ve found.

Photography Spotlight #2 The Sea

IMG_4491

The sea is the theme of this week’s photography spotlight.

This is taken from the air on a light aircraft flight over the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. I took this picture of the heart shaped gap in the reef while i was up in Cairns. I love the sea and especially loved Cairns for it many chances to get into the sea among the reef’s to Scuba dive.

Leaning to scuba dive was one of the best things i did in the last few years as it has opened up a whole new world to me under the waves.
