MM 3-2: Monochrome Madness

It is busy right now and I’m doing this from the Mallee, so I will just get on with it this week. But first, WordPress have made some more changes and it is making it harder and harder to do this post here. Next week we might try it on the Website, I will add a link here. My photo this week, I took it the other day when I was going around Lake Albacutya. I liked how the clouds were looking and this plant on top of a small sand hill out the back. I am going to put the colour version of this up on my website blog.

Up Before the Birds and Catching up

This last week hasn’t been any different to others. It is all go, but that isn’t a bad thing. I like being busy, it is really nice. I’ve also had a wonderful opportunity to meet some bloggers, which is always lovely. This Blog I have just discovered that I can transfer all my followers to the blog on my website. I am unsure about doing this, but it seems like a logical thing to do. It is easy for you and for me. You won’t get email updates on what I’m doing unless you sign up for that, but my posts would still appear in the reader. I haven’t made a decision about it yet, but would like to hear what you think about it. If I decide to do it it will be in a few months. Tasmania The trip is really happening. Yesterday we booked all our accommodation and I’m so excited about going. The trip is affordable, and I think the idea of going in winter is really in our favour. We …

MM 3-1: Monochrome Madness

Welcome to the beginning of the third year of Monochrome Madness. An exciting year ahead I hope. The next theme for the first Monochrome Madness next month will be city. You send only one photo for it and before the post is published. Photos are not added to the post after it is.  You need to get the photos for the next theme by the 3rd of May. Let’s take a look at MM 3-1. Last week I was driving around some areas of Central Victoria and we came to the Dam gates at Cairn Curran reservoir near Maldon. They seemed to be a good subject for a long exposure. I’ve also tried doing in colour and you can see that over on my other blog. I will add a link when I have done the post.

It’s been a funny time

It seems I’m a bit all over the place at the moment. The blog is taking a bit of a back seat and while I don’t mean it too, I am finding myself distracted by other things. So let’s have an update and see what is happening. Banyule Flats Book Things are coming to a head with it and I feel like we are on the run to the finish line. I don’t have a date for completion, some things that are out of my control have happened, but I continue on and get it as close to completion as I can. We have a layout, we just need to work on that now. So, right now I don’t know when the book will be published, but hopefully you and I won’t have to wait too long. Dynamic Range Magazine I’m also very busy getting the next issue of the magazine ready. I realised the other day that the magazine has been a reality for over 12 months now. The idea was conceived about this …

MM 2-52: Second Year Anniversary

We made it. Here we are two years later and we are still going. Perhaps not as strongly as we were a year ago, but we are still here. Congratulations to everyone who has participated over the last two years, it has been wonderful seeing all the images. From now on we will start with 3, so next week it will be MM 3-1.   I had another image that I was going to use, a close up of a flower, but when I went to St Leonards last week I saw these lovelies and managed to get two close together. I decided they had to be my image for this special Monochrome Madness.

Introductions: Suzzanna Flanagan

First of all I want to apologise for the lack of these posts. I keep forgetting to find new people, but I will try and see who I can find for future ones. Today I would like to introduce you to Suzzanna Flanagan. She is a woman who works on the magazine with me, she is helping me with my book and she is also a friend. We often go out together to take photos. It is funny looking through her photos as many of them are very similar to mine. We have been out many times together taking photos. I asked her where in the world she was, well I know, but for you. I live in Melbourne, Australia and take many of my photo’s in Melbourne, the state of Victoria and whenever I am lucky enough to travel overseas – I’m off to Singapore in July and can’t wait to see what I can capture. Going through her photos there is a love of wildlife in her work. I know she loves going …
