I present to you my very first photo for this blog! This photo shows the exterior of my house at night time. My cat (Dazy) is posing in the foreground. I was experimenting with light, shutter speed and movement. If you click on the photo and view the larger image you can see a small rainbow on the verandah as well as the stars above.
I realised today how important it is to have your camera with you at all times. It’s not always possible, but it’s worth remembering. Just driving to work today I saw a beautiful scene that would have made an epic photograph. Some kids were playing in a giant puddle that formed when a dip in the road got flooded. I was scared to drive through but the kids cheered me on as my car ‘floated’ over a drowned speed bump. I took this as an important lesson: never leave your camera at home!
