I read a photography post recently on finding inspiration where you live. My photographs around home tend to focus on the human jungle around us. There are the beautiful eucalypt tree shapes and their long leaves, street lights, electricity (telephone) poles, TV aerials and the other manifestations of modern life such as the wires and insulators that deliver our internet and electricity locally. With the weather being what it is this summer (unpredictable) I’ve been able to get quite a few late cloudy sunsets. Last night was no different.
Here are three photos that I wanted to share. There are more notes on each photo.
The earliest of the three shots, the sun just below the visible horizon, the end of a long hot day. About 21:00 hours looking south west.
This time a focus on the criss-crossing nature of the wires that drive so much of human life today. Suffused with nature in the background. Again taken at 21:00 hours, near last light.
Taken at 21:00 hours near the end of twilight. Practicing depth of field through the human jungle toward the west and south.
While out and about today shooting video and images for the Ballarat Tramway Museum’s Horse Tram day, Mad Max came visiting the Lake Wendouree precinct.
I’m stoked that I managed to get these two shots. I’d just finished packing up my gear when I saw this coming down the road. Great catch. The car was immaculately presented and sounded just as fantastic.
