I remember reading somewhere that it’s fun to photograph soap bubbles in the sink before you do the washing up. I made a couple of images looking down on the bubbles but the result was just so so. Then I got a bright Idea.
Why not take the image from underneath the bubbles.
I set the self timer on my Olympus Tough 8010 to 12 seconds, set the camera to P, pressed the shutter button and carefully slid the camera to the centre of the sink base. The flash eventually popped, I retrieved the camera and after giving it a rinse and dry, downloaded the image. Here is the result:
Every year around the same time, Sydney hosts an event known as ‘Sculptures by the Sea’ along the cliff tops from Bondi Beach to Tamaramma Beach.
As the name suggests, sculptures of all shapes and sizes are displayed along the walk. Here are two sculptures which nicely fit our days theme,’Interact with a Surface.’
That’s yours truly in blue with the camera. This little group people were standing about 20 metres from the sculpture.
The following clever sculpture captured the reflection of passers in various places around its body.
At Canberra’s annual spring Floriade garden festival visitors can expect the unexpected and 2015 was no exception. The following two images show people physically interacting with a surface and the resultant image showing up on an almost vertical screen.
This next image shows my own reflection in the highly polished front wheel of a Harley Davidson Fat Boy as I made the shot.
Now along the lines of selfies, here I am in riding regalia with She Who Must Be Obeyed, aboard a ferry when we were en route to a motor cycle rally in Victoria. The highly polished windows made for a great reflection. Our Harley’s were safely stowed below on the car deck.
Just recently whilst driving to a nearby town, we came across a farmer herding a mob of sheep along the road. We pulled over to let them pass and some of the sheep were nicely showing in the rear vision mirror. Thankfully the iPhone was handy and here is the result.
As nude selfies are all the rage, why should I miss out. The other morning as I emerged from the shower I thought I saw a ghost in the bathroom mirror.
Dripping wet, I rushed to my office, grabbed a camera and here is the result. Fortunately modesty was not an issue. After all, I’m no Paris Hilton.
On a recent shoot of motorcycles and bike paraphernalia, I saw, though the lens that I was reflected in a helmet. I grabbed the shot and find the result quite interesting after cropping out other bike related bits and pieces.
The following image is one of my favourites. We were happy to have ‘Robert’, an American Staffy as a house guest for a while not so long ago. One morning Robert was giving me the eye, reminding me that it was walk time.
As usual, with dog and camera we wandered off to the river for some exercise and in Robert’s case a swim and a play. I had the camera ready for his return and as he sat to say thank you, looking up at me with his paws on my feet I saw my reflection in his eye and here it is.
I went a bit overboard with Photoshop but I like the result and that’s the way its going to stay.
So there we are, another day down and only three to go. What fun.
Hoo roo, see you tomorrow.
