I did photography in high school, right up to year 12. It was by far my favourite subject. I loved the darkroom and became adept at doing things without light or in low light. But I also loved playing around and trying to get certain images to work.
Once during a photography weekend in Port Adelaide while playing with depth of field, I managed to get some flowers in focus with the Port Adelaide lighthouse out of focus in the background. I’ll have to try and dig that photo out of my archives and get it scanned in. But when visiting Floriade I remembered that photo, and tried to get a few images like it by focusing on one flower and letting the others go out of focus.
Surprisingly many of my best photos were taken on my phone. All of the images you see here are from my phone. My poor Lumix shockproof and waterproof camera may be on its last legs. So how do you get shallow depth of field on a phone? On mine, I tap on the flower I want to be in focus until it that flower is super sharp, and then take the photo. There are a lot of flower photos coming your way. :)
Remember when we visited Eat Street back in June? They had an art installation of giant white rabbits in the mall especially for this evening.
These white rabbits may have been on their way home from the Vivid festival which had just ended.
Is Your Airbag Safe?
There is a new website so you can easily find out. Click here – IsMyAirbagSafe.com.au and enter your car rego and select the state from the drop down – mine is not safe. :/
I wonder if these messages are written strictly for us non-medical citizens, or whether medical staff actually read this kind of thing before irrigating a brain.
We are taking a Cat Break this week, but never fear, those kitties are posing up a storm for future Fridays!
Family has been visiting this week, here is a shot I took mid Thursday as we went for a short Vincentia walk.
I’ll be taking a break from blogging next week because I have been so busy gallivanting about this week. :) After that I will be back with election tales, and some things I bought this week.

Jervis Bay, photography
It is Friday the 13th! So this week I have used a magic filter in my photo editing software for our Fribay photo. Here is the original.
Sometimes I find it so difficult to take my eyes away from the beauty of Jervis Bay. :)
