Pictures galore

I've become sufficiently enthused by photography that I'm considering doing a 365 project. I'm not sure how far I will get, but I may as well give it a stab. Anyone done one? How did it go? What was it like? Did it make you love photography or hate it?

Here are some photos from yesterday.

Pinot Noir
A very nice glass of Pinot I shared with a friend yesterday.

Boardgames in King George Square
There were giant boardgames (and normal ones) in King George Square yesterday. I was bemused.

Giant chess
The giant chess set - I think I did okay for composition on this one.

red flower
A striking red flower near Cornwall St. There are a few more on my photostream of this flower, check them out.

wall and sky
This one probably needs a bit of cropping on the left hand side to really make it shine, but overall I think it was alright.

little blue flower
A tiny shy little blue flower. I'm tempted to see if I can get a better shot today.

green and traffic light
A bit of greenery and a traffic light. I took this while I was waiting to cross Juliette St.

banksia flower
A banksia flower. I'm not sure I'm entirely happy with how this and the other two shots I took turned out.

Of these next few, I really couldn't decide which I liked best, so I'm posting them all.

This one was just a bit of fun.

And that's all for now.

  1. Some really neat stuff there Elspeth ^_^ I love the little church on the edge of the city one, really well composed! The wall is interesting too although the light flare over the top detracts a bit. The little blue flower could actually be quite rare btw, 'true blue' as in, without a purple tint is apparently hard to find in horticulture, I remember reading about some people in Europe hunting for blue flowers in nature to steal genes from to make blue roses or something.

    Best Wishes,
