Abstract Photography

10 Jul








We were at the farm again this weekend and I decided to take my camera (yes – not my iPhone!) to the old woolshed down the road.  I started taking pics of the usual suspects but the light was not great (I will post the ones I like later though) and I didn’t want to use my flash so I decided to try something a little different.  Looking at the way galvanised wire fell on top of the motley old sheep dipper (with amazing patina) reminded me of abstract paintings.

The top 5 pics are of this wire with the sheep dipper behind – although you wouldn’t know that without me telling you.  Now they are just abstract sprays of colour.   The bottom 2 pics are more obvious although still in an abstract theme.

I was having so much fun my family had to come and find me as they thought I couldn’t restart the farm bike.  I took about 150 pics so hopefully more to show soon.

I still can’t seem to load the pics using my PC so I had to download from my camera to my PC and then send to my iPhone.  This was fine as I love the iPhone editing apps.  Then I can easily load pics on the WordPress App.  Ahh the joys of technology!

Running on the Beach

Running along the beach on a cold day – the older one looks behind to make sure he still has a good lead. He does…for now…

The Cave

Taken today at Muriwai Beach, near Auckland, New Zealand.  We found this amazing cave and then had to boot it when the water started to come in!

Rugby or football?

Taken today at the farm.   Another  warm(ish), gorgeous blue-sky day.  Not bad for the 2nd day of Winter!
