I’ve been going through all my negatives and working out which ones I can scan. Many of them, not sure I would worry about them, while others I want to scan. I have found negatives that I forgot I had and then other ones I want to find, I can’t. That can be frustrating. The photos today are those negatives that I forgot I had and was very happy when I saw them.
This building is in the city up the top. It used to be the Magistrates building. I don’t know what it is used for now. I believe it is part of RMIT University. It is such a beautiful old building. So much detail. It is one of those buildings you just keep noticing new things about it.
When I first took these photos I really didn’t like them. The sky was not good, but with the digital darkroom I can now dark the sky and give it some depth, rather than the white blandness that the original prints had.
The next few were taken after the sun went down. This is the top of Collins Street. It is a shame there wasn’t more traffic, probably would have made a better image. I don’t mind this shot, but I have seen some amazing HDR images with similar scenes, so would like to try that again.
There are lots of lots of steps up Parliament House. This is a very popular place for people to have their wedding photos taken. I didn’t really take any images of the building as a whole. I really must try doing that more. I should try going in one day and taking some in daylight.
This is the outside of Treasury Place. It is also another really old building here in Melbourne, well about 150 years old. I liked this composition back then, when I first took it, and I still like it. I like the two lights.
Sorry a quick post today, well, it seems quick for me. I have to go and help my daughter put her new bed together.
