Photograpers & dog walkers.....


Well I must be feeling better..I picked up my camera for the first time in three days yesterday. Apart from feeling a bit perkier, thanks heaps for all the good wishes, I realized that it's less than a week until the CDP theme day the subject being 'the beauty of decay', a subject that takes a bit of reflection oui!. I pass the Yellagonga Regional Park, only ten minutes away from me regularly and often think about stopping to take some shots and as I didn't want to travel far this was the perfect opportunity. Although the decayed tree above would have been, and even now is, beautiful in the sunset light, there's something else just out of view that may be right for the theme.
The photographer above and below was at times using my 'possible' subject as a backdrop for some of the romantic shots he was taking and I see seven dogs between these two dog walkers below, even if one dog is not exactly walking :) In the half an hour we were there the light changes were tres dramatic, I wasn't the only one with camera in hand hoping for a good shot. I'm looking forward to catching up with what's been going on in your part of the world today and hope all is well. Happy Monday, take care.....

  2. I'm pleased to see you back Grace - I was getting worried!
    The tree is wonderful and the light on the romantic couple is perfect.
    Hmmm the theme of beauty of decay - perhaps you should visit a cosmetic dental surgery?

  6. A fallen tree is as beautiful as standing. Nice shots. The second image is romantic and full evening sun. Too bad the weekend is over. Nice photos. Have a good week.

  8. That top shot with the setting sun as a background would be perfect for "Beauty of Decay" Grace .... Isn't it good to be out on a mission with camera in hand.

  12. I see the dog walkers are approaching the photographer and his smoochy clients. No one wants any extra "artifact" in the pictures.

  15. I'm glad you are feeling better. I see from your photos that you had quite the photo excursion. Lots of different things to see. Monday is a holiday in the US so no work for us and since I now only work 4 days a week, I'll be having a four day weekend. I'm loving it.
