  1. Finding drama in photos is something I never thought of before reading your blog. What a creative idea!

    May 7, 2014
    • I love drama in images, and add it whenever I can, it can take some doing, but I love it. Thank you what a lovely thing to say.

  4. Hi, Leanne: Just wanted to thank you for the “follow.” I’ve been enjoying your posts for a while now and am looking forward to many more. Your efforts are very impressive.

    May 14, 2014
    • You are so very welcome Robin, I like your work so I thought I would follow, mind you, I probably won’t comment very often, I find it harder and harder to comment these days, but I do enjoy looking. Thank you, it is interesting where the blog is going, and I do like what happened with the post on monitors, I hope others will do similar things.

      May 14, 2014
  5. Hi Leanne! Just wanted to thank you for stopping by our blog, we really appreciate your interest in our initiative. Have a great day!

    May 15, 2014
  6. Wonderful blog and extraordinary photography Leanne. I got here following Visual Venturing’s post about color calibration and Monochrome Madness; now, I’m going to stay tuned for me to learn more about my passionate hoby from you!

    May 15, 2014
    • Thank you Jaime, it is wonderful hearing how people find you, so that you for that. Stacy is great.

      May 15, 2014
  7. Love the photos I have seen so far. I am looking forward to exploring some more. Thank you for liking my post…l love the farm and all the critters. We have something in common in that our first camera was a SLR Pentax K1000. Just wish I had more time to look through the lens……Colleen

    May 17, 2014
    • Thank you Colleen. Farms can be great places to take photos, I have met a few people who had Pentax K1000’s, maybe we should form a group, how funny would it be. I don’t have mine anymore, sadly, I sold it a few years ago. It can be hard finding time, I am starting to find more and more, which is great. Good luck Colleen and thanks for the visit.

      May 17, 2014

    Hope you will accept. I just wanted to let you know how much I have appreciated your visits, your posts since meeting. Cheers Irene

    May 20, 2014
  9. I wish I took better photos. It’s something I must really work at. I have a nice little camera but no patience to learn what all the buttons mean. Photography is a gorgeous medium! One thing I do really well is drink coffee. I’m happy to see you’ve mentioned your love for the wondrous beverage too :-)

    May 23, 2014
    • It is something we all have to work at really, some of us have just had more experience. I think it is a great medium too. I love my coffee, my day doesn’t start properly until I have had my coffee. :)

      May 23, 2014
      • I do have to work at taking better shots. I don’t help myself any by taking bad photos of my art. This summer is going to be utilized to improve upon many things – needless to say, I will be extremely busy this summer :-)

        May 24, 2014
      • Maybe that is where you should start AnnMarie, getting better photos of your art. It is good to have a goal to start with and then work your way from there. Sounds like a busy summer. Good luck. :)

        May 24, 2014
      • Restating it your way sounds much more positive and achievable – many thanks

        May 24, 2014
      • I am glad AnnMarie, I hope you get a chance to learn more.

        May 24, 2014
      • I’m going to ‘focus’ (my attempt at camera humor) this summer and try to improve. I think my greatest problem is lighting. My post yesterday is a perfect example – I took 2 photos of my artwork – both sketches were done on printer paper – I had to retake the woman’s photo at night before posting and I didn’t know how to light it. She looks quite a bit different than the monster daytime shot. – it’s something I have to work on.
        Thanks again for the gentle inspiration :-)

        May 24, 2014
      • It is all practice AnnMarie, really, the more you do it the better you will get, I love natural lighting and what comes through a window. Good luck.

        May 24, 2014
      • Thanks. I’m going to have to take new pics of my art for my redesigned blog (ready soon, hopefully) and will take all canvases and drawings outside – thank you…

        May 24, 2014
      • YOu are welcome, to stop distortion the best lens is a 50mm, make sure the canvas and camera are parallel to one another and the lens is point straight to the middle of the canvas. Good luck.

        May 25, 2014
      • I’ll give it a go. Many thanks :-)

        May 25, 2014
      • Good luck. :)

    Thank you

  25. Pentax K1000. My first SLR too. What a camera. I wish I still had it.

    June 25, 2014
    • I think so many people had it as their first too, I was told when I got it that it was the perfect camera to learn photography with, and I am the same, sometimes I wish I still had it.

      June 25, 2014
  26. Hi Leanne, just want to let you know, I really appreciate your visits to my pictures!You are an amazing photographer and your enthusiasm is inspiring :)

  29. Thanks for the like on my McCormick’s Creek post. We have been travelling within our home state of Indiana the past few years. My kids have had a great time seeing the historical sites and hiking the trails.

    I saw that you started out with a K1000 – so did I. I used that camera for almost twenty years until the film advance mechanism totally disintegrated. That was a great camera. Sadly, it failed two days before we were flying from Hong Kong to Tokyo and I looked at a magnificent shot of Mt. Fuji out our plane window – the lighting, the snow cap, the sky – they were all perfect – all I lacked was a camera!!

    I would like to invite you to follow my blog at I post several different topic lines, but I do like to post photography and travel items. I have fall pictures of the Smoky Mountains coming up in a few days.

    Thanks again. Have a great day!

    July 18, 2014
    • You’re welcome, the K1000 was a great camera, I ended up getting a Nikon F90x and used that until I got my first DSLR. What great timing for the camera to break down, or not.
      Thank you Dennis, nice to hear from you.

  37. hello Leanne,

    great reading and seeing your blog. i love seeing photos of the places of world. australia is just so spectacular- it is on my list of places to see more of. in the mean time i am learning about capturing the images of aotearoa as i get around on my bike. i will keep coming back here to learn more about photography, and to feast my eyes.


    August 28, 2014
    • Such adventures Esse, that is wonderful. Australia is such a great country to photograph, there are so many different things and scenes, I don’t think I would ever get bored of it. Thank you.

      August 28, 2014
      • yeah you’re not likely to get bored of Australia any time soon:) such a varied country! so is gorgeous Aotearoa- even the just the changes in light play over the seasons are enough to compel a photographer for quite some time.
        keep enjoying.

        August 29, 2014
      • I agree Esse, it is the travelling really, so far to get anywhere to get great shots. It is great when you live or are around an area that provides so much inspiration.
        I will and you do the same.

        August 29, 2014

      September 9, 2014
  40. Great Blog. I am new to blogging. kindly review my blog & provide your valuable feedback.

    September 17, 2014
    • Welcome to blogging, I don’t review blogs like that, sorry, I get asked a lot and it isn’t something I am comfortable with, I’m sure your blog is great.

      September 17, 2014
  41. Thank you for the “like” on my photo post. I love photography, but I still struggle with the technical stuff. Your blog is so classy!

    September 22, 2014
    • Hello Melissa, welcome to my blog. Can I let you in on a little secret, we all felt that way at one time, it is part of learning photography, one day you will be so surprised at how much you do know. Thank you so much for what you said about my blog. If you are interested in learning, my other blog on my website has more stuff on learning to do photography, you might be interested in that.

      September 22, 2014
  42. Such a great photographer liked my very simple photo? Thanks for liking my post. You are welcome to my posts/photos and help me to improve with your valuable suggestions. I have just started and learning WP Blog.

    September 22, 2014
    • You’re welcome, I try to encourage others where I can, by liking work. I don’t really comment on individual posts and photos like that, I have so many people asking me and it just isn’t possible, just keep going and doing what you love and then people will follow. It is all experience. Good luck.

      September 23, 2014
  43. Leanne, your “likes” on my blog posts haven’t gone unnoticed. Thanks so much for your visits. I wanted to let you know that I enjoy seeing all your wonderful photographic art! As my photos attest, I’m not a serious photographer, but my camera goes everywhere with me and I like capturing the important things I discover each day. I discard more shots than I keep but usually find something among the collection to illustrate my blog topic. Your posts are an inspiration. :)

    September 23, 2014
    • You are very welcome Carol, it sounds like you are a serious photographer to me Carol, and it doesn’t matter how many you throw away, in the days of film a photographer told me you would be lucky to get one good shot out of a roll of 36. I think these days we just expect too much. So as long as you are getting the shots you need, you are having great success. Thank you so much for what you said about mine, it is much appreciated, and it is good to hear. Good luck with your photography too.

      September 23, 2014
  44. You’re photos are lovely! Thank’s for swinging by my blog and leading me to yours :)

  46. Leanne, I’m afraid I’m going to have to temporarily ‘unfollow’ your blog. Our internet seems to be steam driven at the moment and your frequent posts, along with so many photos, stalls my Reader so that I’m struggling to see anything. Sadly the problem is infrastructure and nothing we can do about it. Sorry – but I’ll be back!

    October 1, 2014
    • It is terrible when that happens, but I do completely understand hope to see you back another time.

      October 1, 2014

    Thank you for the like, I think I’ll have a lot to learn from your blog and I’m happy you found me! I have only recently adopted photography as a hobby and being self-taught means blogs like yours are priceless =)

  73. How do you like the pentax? I’ve been so tempted to buy one but everyone dissuades me saying its hard finding parts. I love the quality and would love to own one someday.

    January 1, 2015
    • I got mine 22 years ago, but moved onto other cameras. It was a great camera to learn on at the time. But it is a film camera, and I think would be an expensive way to learn photography now. I think digital is probably better to learn with, and then if you want to shoot on film try it then. I sold that camera around 10 years ago, so haven’t used it for a long time. I use a Nikon DSLR now.

      January 1, 2015
  74. Thank you for liking a post on my blog. Your photography is amazing. I am new to photography and love to learn. I look forward to following your blog and learning what I can from you.
    Happy New Year!

    January 2, 2015
    • You’re very welcome, and thank you so much. I try and show things, but not in the ordinary way, well the way that most people do.
      Happy New Year to you, hope to hear from you again.

  76. Hi, I am a Melbourne mixed media artist. Lovely work. Also really like the way you dot pointed your about page.

    January 11, 2015
    • Hello Cheryle, nice to meet you, I like your work too, lovely to meet someone else from Melbourne. Thanks, it seemed an easy way of doing it.

      January 11, 2015
  77. Leanne, you are a professioner i admire so much. Though i didn’t know how deep you are at d begining of my encountering your blog. but since i know, every of your like is a push on. Thank you so much.

    January 14, 2015
    • Thank you, that is so nice of you to say. That is wonderful, I hope you continue to enjoy my blog.

  78. Hello Leanne! Thank you very much for the like on my blog post. I LOVE your black and white photos. I am not a stellar photographer nor do I have the right equipment to get certain shots that I want but your tips on photography will really help! :)

    January 20, 2015
    • You’re welcome, thank you too, no one thinks they are a stellar photographer, so I wouldn’t worry about that. The best camera is the one you have with you, so they say. I believe if you love taking photos then it will show in your images, so just keep doing it, and trying different things. I give tips when I can. :D

  80. Hi Leanne, I just changed my last post Serenity at Sea II, three times !after the initial post! right after I read one of your tutorials. #1 don’t put the horizon dead center – I did. #2 don’t forget to straighten the horizon – I didn’t. Well, I went back and modified the same image and repost it 2 more times before I thought I had it looking better. Thanks for the tips. Sometimes we don’t see what is right before our eyes.

    January 24, 2015
    • You’re welcome, though do remember that the tips are just that tips, guidelines, and not rules. It is good to think about that sort of thing. I will have to go and take another look at your photos then. Thanks for letting me know, good to hear that they are useful.

      January 24, 2015
  81. Thanks for visiting my blog – glad you liked it. My photography efforts are pretty feeble compared to yours, but it’s something I like doing and I hope to learn more when I have time.

    January 26, 2015
    • You’re welcome, I think, though, that we all think we aren’t good enough. I know I often feel that way. If you love doing it then it will shine through and there is never a problem with learning, I hope to keep learning forever.
