A Quiet Day

LeanneCole-kyneton-australia-abandonedbridge-20131002-8662

It has been a busy week here on this blog that today I thought I would just show an image and not talk much.  I hope you don’t mind.

This is an image I did a few weeks ago for Monochrome Madness, but in the end decided to use a similar image of this bridge that is near Kyneton in central Victoria.

Enjoy your day.

  14. Leanne, love it…fantastic shot, so moody :)

  15. As much as I like writing. Im a visual person so just looking at a picture is good with me. Plus a picture says a 1000 words right :)

    June 5, 2014
    • I am a visual person too, I might try doing this a little more once a week. Thank you.

      June 5, 2014
  16. A picture is worth a thousand words, Leanne, sometimes we all need quiet time, so this time you can let the picture do the talking for you.

    June 5, 2014
    • Thank you, I feel like I’ve been talking all week.

      June 5, 2014

    Leanne, your images are hauntingly beautiful. My every visit to your blog is a spiritual experience and I don’t mean that in a trite and superficial way. They do something to me and I don’t like explaining what they do, I simply allow myself to feel it. I remember so well the day I first found your blog. I knew in that moment, here was something special, So thank you. Thank you for the life your images give me.

    June 5, 2014
    • What a wonderful comment, thank you so very much Don, I really appreciate hearing this.

      June 5, 2014
  26. Leanne; this photo took my breath away. It has a very haunting yet mesmerizing quality that I love. Thank you for sharing it with us. :)

    June 5, 2014
    • You’re welcome, just great that you like it, thank you.

      June 5, 2014
  27. I think this is stunning..

    June 5, 2014
  28. No need to say much with this shot Leanne, its simply stunning, really jumps out :-)

    June 5, 2014
  29. Stunning shot. Haunting, dark, desolate, end of the world. Every shot you do, it seems to come out of passion, keep it up.

    Hope all is well with you. Been a very tired week for me, long weekend here we come.

    June 5, 2014
    • Exactly what I was looking for, thank you Mabel, I need to work on some new images.

      Yeah, pretty good really, been very busy trying to get my Social Snappers Excursions organised, but the page is up now, so that is good. Busy next few days for me, all good though. Lots of teaching. Hope you enjoy your weekend.

  34. I like it!

    June 5, 2014
  35. So atmospheric and I love the perspective!
    Wonderful :)

    June 5, 2014
    • I love the perspective of it as well Robyn, look you left a comment. Thank you.

      June 6, 2014
      • Funny, when I see a wonderful shot like this one… I wonderful what the photographer looked like while taking it :)
        Ive often been flat on my stomach for a shot I want…lol
        You mightve used your tripod :D
        Yes I can comment on my ipad :)

        June 6, 2014
      • I was crouching down Robyn, the bridge wasn’t good for lying on, you might fall through it, it is a careful careful, kind of place. I put the camera almost on the ground to take the photo. didn’t look through it. Does that give you an idea?
        That is interesting that you can comment on that, must be something on computer. I heard someone else say it was because they had some program to stop ads, not adblock though, and it meant they couldn’t comment. I wonder if you have something similar.

        June 6, 2014
      • Yes it does!
        I’ve always thought Id love to do a series on Photographers in action… One day :)
        Glad you were very careful. The things we do… :)

        I do have AdBlock but have always had it.
        I’ll work it out and in the mean time glad I can comment… Sometimes.
        Tried to comment on your new post, but nope. Wont let me.

        Anyway I love what youre doing. I love a yak ;)
        ..and the Social Snappers is exciting!!

        June 6, 2014
      • Like artists in their studios, that sort of thing? You might have to do that one day.

        I don’t think it is AdBlock, the person I am thinking of, had something else, and I recommended AdBlock. can’t remember what it was. I’m sure you will.
        Thank you, I know, you and I have had several, always look forward to them. I hope so, I can’t wait for people to start booking them, I need to fix some things though. think I might add another day as well, one during the week, I’m worried that the weekend might be too hectic for some. :)

    I remember this image; it looks like an old bridge of some sort. I love the way it appears to be ‘framing’ the light in the distance as if to say ‘there is hope.’ I’m such a sucker for mono!

    June 6, 2014
    • It is a bridge, a disused one Jackie, they built another one beside it and changed the road. Thank you

      June 6, 2014
  37. This is exceptional Leanne…I keep coming back to this… fantastic.

  40. Hi Leanne,thanks for liking some of my recent posts! Glad to see you´re still publishing wonderful images like the ones on this entry. Very atmospheric :)

    June 6, 2014
    • You’re very welcome. I try, I haven’t been doing enough of this sort of thing though, must get back into it. Thank you. :)

      June 6, 2014
  41. Very cool! Reminds me of the move Sleepy Hollow.

    June 6, 2014
    • I’ve heard others compare my work with that movie, I had to go out and get it so I could see what people were talking about. Thanks
