1-18/365 Challenge

Here's a snapshot of the first 18 days/photos of my 365 photo challenge. Some days I forget to take my camera with me - other days I start shooting photos as soon as I get up - I'm learning heaps and looking at the world around me in a totally different fashion.

Bigger versions of all the photos can been found in my flicker 365 set.

Some photos taken by spacegirlnz as we drove home today.

This shot took some time to get right - a matter of depressing the button half way and waiting for the wiper to be at a certain point before completing the shot.

I particularly like the effect of these two photos - the blur of the fence line with the background more in focus.

planning time

It's good to get some decent planning time over the holidays - means I'll start the school year well prepared and RELAXED!

365/11 - Bamboo

I'm still coming across things of my mothers as I open bags and boxes at random times - these are gift tags she must have bought when living in Hong Kong (or maybe bookmarks) made with what looks like slivers of bamboo. Close ups of some of the individual cards are on flickr.

Dip

Sheltering from the SUN outside Macs Brewery on the waterfront I ordered breads and dips - this was part of the dips.

camera/video technique ... i did it my way ...
kiwilessa
I found myself wanting to both video the action at Unicon XV and take photographs and ended up holding my camera on top of the vado and shooting both video and photo at the same time.

This is a photo of how I hold the two (note that I use two hands but my 2nd hand was taking this photo!):

This is a photo I snapped (and used as part of my 365 Photo Challenge):

And this is the video that I shot at the same time:



43 seconds into the video is when I took the photo above.
