THE BOAT SHED – Ornamental Lake, Royal Botanic Gardens

I haven’t done any Street Photography on the last 3 visits to Melbourne’s CBD and am feeling totally uninspired in my attempts at Black and White Photography at the moment.

There seems to be no ‘light’ in my vision.

With the warmer weather of Spring, I have no real excuse for not getting outdoors and experimenting, but this new blog of mine seems to be lagging in the new image department.  This morning I converted this relatively recent photo to B & W to keep the ball rolling.  But I need to fossick around for some new material.

I know.  Excuses, excuses.

Winter in Black & White

Methinks I’ve neglected my Black & White blog lately.

I’ve been into Melbourne’s city centre twice in the last few weeks, (shopping), and taken the DSLR and NOT MADE ONE SINGLE PHOTO !

Unthinkable.  But there it is.  Me…….. go to the city…….. and not take a photo anywhere!

I’ve been outdoors on the odd sunny day in the Royal Botanic Gardens, but only taken the occasional photo there.

I am in remission from Photography Addiction.

So it’s back to the archives to find a Wintery Day scene down by the far end of the Ornamental Lake in the Royal Botanic Gardens made on 28th June 2011.  Not much light.  Mostly fog and a shaft of sunlight to light up a patch of murky looking water.

Spring will be DownUnder in a few weeks, so hopefully, it’ll be photography weather again.

A LONG DAY (INTO LATE AFTERNOON)

I’m way behind in reviewing photos I’ve made recently, but decided these were worthy of my Black & White Blog (as opposed to my other blog Living With Nature).

After all, they ARE  Black & White and that’s what this blog is all about (not necessarily Street Photography).  The fact that I started with street photography doesn’t mean every post will be along those lines.
