Life Moves Fast – Time To Slow Down

I’ve really enjoyed these past couple of photos because they remind me that time just moves way too fast, and that if we take the time to slow down we can see some really interesting things.

Things that are hidden in our mad rush to get from one place to another as fast as possible, and from trying to fit as many unimportant things in to our lives as possible.

So this weekend, slow down, take a deep breath, have a look around and enjoy yourself.

Stationary Motion

Hi Everyone,

For me there is just nothing like standing there and watching the ocean move around stationary objects.   It looks like the ocean isn’t doing the rocks or other things any damage but we all know that the ocean always wins.  Every time!   Its also just so relaxing listening to the waves crashing onto the rocks and then listening to it sliding back off the beach.   I could seriously watch and listen to that same motion all day long.

In Sydney I used to live right on the beach and it was great being able to leave the windows open each night and let the ocean sing me to sleep.  I remember that I used to sleep so deeply each night.   In the Navy the ocean used to rock me to sleep all night though in the Southern Ocean she could be a bit rude and would throw me out of bed when I least expected it.

So where am I going with all this?   Its simple, I’m just obsessed by the ocean.  I hope you guys enjoy the photo.

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson


Cottesloe Beach

Hi Crew,

I hope you’ve all had a great weekend.   Have I jumped on the black and white bandwagon with this shot?  Certainly not!   I see things in colour and in the past have converted the odd photo to black and white when the composition and light was good but the colour wasn’t.

In this case though I always saw this Cottesloe Beach shot in black and white for some reason, perhaps its because of Brett Morgan’s latest photos.  Either way I’m glad I saw this one in black and white as it really works.  Now should I rock Mark’s boat and do a third post for the day?  I think so.

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson


The Nut – Stanley

Hi Everyone,

After an amazing trip I’m back!   I had so much fun even though it was heaps of hard work, I even managed to make it up to the top of Cradle Mountain itself but that’s another story.   The Nut at Stanley in Tasmania is a spot I’ve been dying to photograph for ages and I didn’t think I’d get to photograph it this time around as while I was in Tasmania they had one of their worst cold fronts in years.   It was the same one that caused all the flooding in Victoria.

However, as usual patience paid off and on my fourth day in Tassie the skies cleared so I decided to head up the coast and see what I could get.   The Nut is quite striking and even has a small cable car going up to the top of it.  I couldn’t believe it but there were small kids playing in the water while I had on two layers of thermals.  Guess they must have been locals!

Hope you like it and its good to be back.   Hopefully we can all catch up soon.

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson


Miles and Miles

Miles and miles of ocean.  I love it.   This is the most enjoyable form of photography for me.   Flemming has his wide open spaces and me?  I’m addicted to the Ocean, distant, desolate beaches with just me and the ocean.   Nothing more to say. 🙂

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson


Cottesloe Beach Groyne

I decided this afternoon to head down to Cottesloe Beach again despite the heavy rain and huge seas slamming into the groyne.   I always knew that I was going to get soaked so I just wore an old jumper, shorts and put my camera into an underwater housing.   I’m glad I did, here is a shot of me just about to be soaked with the spray of a wave hitting the groyne.   It was heaps of fun though the few people who were there looked at me as if I was crazy.  Yes I did get soaked form head to toe.   To be honest it was pretty uplifting being sprayed by the ocean, like new life was being splashed onto me.

Hope you guys enjoy this photo of Cottesloe Beach.

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson


Burns Beach

Hi Everyone,

Hope you all had a great weekend.   Is everyone back from Karijini yet?   I decided to get out and about this morning to new territory and hit Burns Beach.    Mornings like this morning are always good fun, its not too cold and the waves are big enough to create interest but not big enough to completely soak you.   I’ll definitely be heading back there when its low tide to cover it a bit better.

Melissa and I are still waiting for son No 2 to arrive sometime over the next couple of weeks.

Thanks for reading,

Jamie Paterson
