Circles.

Circles are everywhere. I was just looking at some photos that I've taken in the last few weeks and I found lots of circles.

Water Lilies

I have just spent a lovely morning at the Chinese Gardens at Darling Harbour with my lovely sister in law and niece. It is really beautiful there. I particularly love the water lilies.

The Colour Red

It's Charlie's swimming carnival today. His house colour is red.


Thought I would take photos of red things this week.

Tree trunks.


I met someone the other day in the school canteen who had done photography in a past life. She suggested I practice taking photos of tree trunks, so while I was waiting for the man to come and fix my fridge I snapped away in my garden.







Not just trunks: Branches, logs and a bird house as well.

Chinese New Year.

Chinese new year is a big deal in my neighbourhood. The mall is decorated with lanterns and the shops have dragons hanging in them. It looks quite pretty.

I took some photos in the evening last night and also early this morning. These ones were in the evening..




And these were this morning...







I think I prefer the morning light.

Learning how to use my camera.

In the January holidays I did a beginners photography course so that I could learn a bit more about using my camera. It was very inspiring and I've decided to post photos each week (or more often) to test out my new found photography knowledge.

 I learnt stuff about:                    Aperture


Shutter speed




Composition, light & colour



                                              
....And lots more. I'm looking forward to taking some more this week.
