Sometimes I Take Photos...

This is the third attempt at a post I've had tonight (writer's block has got me bad). It is a little sad that I've had to resort to showing you all some photos that I've taken, but I really don't have anything left in my little noggin. Anyway, these photos aren't the most professional things ever. As part of my photography course at school I got given a really flash camera, which has a habit of making things look good. None of them have been retouched (when I open Photoshop I just stare blankly at it...how the hell does that thing work?!), and I'm only new to this kind of thing so don't expect mind-blowing pictures. Some photos turned out really good, so I'll share them with you.



This is like a freaking The Tree of Life moment. That bee just came to that flower at the right time and I felt like I witnessed the creation of Earth.


That's my dog, Indy, waiting on the veranda for my mother to get home. Now, I realise that he looks funny. When we got him, he was jet black. Then he started going white. At the moment, he's grey, but he has the whiter legs than I do. Such a strange young puppy.


And again. He just looks so happy here.


I know this seems like "bring a pet" day, but this is my cat Mumble (I have another one called Scooter - mother would kill me if I didn't mention her). Mumble's a moody teenager who likes to do stunts on the roof, sleep all day and party all night. I just really like this photo. It looks strange.



I took that photo while I was trying to take photos of the Perigree moon (which decided it would hide behind some clouds until well after I'd gone to bed. I love making light art with a slow shutter speed.


I actually took this while I watching Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. That should be a representation of how entertained I was by that movie.



Sunset photos at my Dad's house are seriously the best. Thank goodness for the Ruahine Ranges.


This is the last photo I took, at about 7.45am this morning. There was a bit of a frost, so everything looked white and pretty.

Anyway, as you were. What do you think of these photos? Are you a bit of a photographer yourself?

  1. These photos are amazing. Literally, seeing them made my night. The sixth one is my favourite. I seem to be one of the only people that think a cloudy sky is much more fascinating to photograph than a clear one. If you ever take more photos like these, I'd love to see them.

    1. Haha, same. My camera is quite big so I don't like to carry it around too much.

    1. He is! And yes, the best thing about living in NZ is the scenery.

      With the light I just put my shutter speed on a really slow setting and pointed it at a street light, and just went crazy. You can do a lot with slow shutter speeds and lights!
