You know the more complicated life gets the less we remember to stop and look at the really simple things in life. Often the simple things are the things that bring us the most pleasure. A child’s laugh, a hug from our loved ones, watching a sunrise and sunset can often be much more rewarding than driving around in the latest car or living in the biggest house.
I set out on Saturday morning with a massive panoramic shot in mind but due to the fog and haze from fire I couldn’t get it. I was about to go home without a shot when I started to take a really good close look at the plants and then I saw all these water droplets on them. I was mesmerised and spent the next 2hrs shooting them. This is the very mechanics of life. The plants absorbing CO2 for us and of course we all need water. I walked away a much happier and calmer person on Saturday after spending some time enjoying the simple things in life.
Thanks for reading and commenting,
This is a photo I got a few weeks ago when I was on my way to work and I was pretty stoked with the results. Its funny because even though there wasn’t any colour the other photographers left but as you can see it was still a really moody start to the day which I thought was still great to watch unfold. I have to admit I was really exhausted after this shoot because so many personal trainers were yelling and screaming at their classes and everyone was sweating so hard. I felt like I lost weight just by being there. I can think of better things to do in the morning than run around having some bloke scream at me.
This photo also has my new logo especially designed for me by Beau Mitchell. Thanks Beau!!!
I had the great pleasure of catching up with Kirk on Saturday morning at Kings Park, we’d made a last minute decision the night before to head up there and see what we came up with. I must admit after picking away at this photo for ages, I’m finally warming up to it, as people say, we are our own worst critics. This was a five image stich taken with the 1Ds MkIII. I’m pretty impressed with the resolution, in the full size image I can actually zoom in on the photo and see a person in one of the offices!!! It doesn’t get much better than that.
