Brush with fame

26 Sep 2008 at 6:55am

A little while ago my kids and I were listening to our favourite Australian band Cog. Shay started a little drawing and wrote the bands name on the top of the page and wrote the line from one of the songs Bird of Feather. He then drew the guys in the band playing their instruments. As a proud dad I told him that Cog would love to see his drawing so we posted it off not thinking much would come of it. Anyway I got a message to ring this guy Luke, I know some Lukes but man did I get a surprise when he said “it’s Luke from Cog”. How cool is it that with all their success that they would respond to a 4 year olds drawing. I think that is probably why they are doing so well, they respect their fans and give their time freely. A good lesson for all of us BTW. They are going to send Shay something so he will be very excited. Actually I’m not sure who will be the most excited. Anyway if you like your music a little on the harder side and like music that is meaningful and well written you better check them out. If you wonder what music I listen to when I’m shooting you will find out. Cog will be playing in Bunbury in a couple of weeks, don’t miss them.

Lone Pines

25 Sep 2008 at 12:16pm

Standing tall against the carnage that surrounds, these two pine trees were begging for a photo. Again shot with the 400mm no tripod but I did get out of the car again for this one. The hills around Bridgetown are so great to photograph, I’d love to spend some more time there.

Pano shot with 400mm

21 Sep 2008 at 7:10am

This is the first pano I have shot at 400mm. Not only that, it was handheld, forget the 360 precision head and forget PT Gui it was stitched in photoshop. Still, it has taken me all afternoon on my laptop. Now I know what Matt Lauder is on about when he does the house work in between stitches! Makes me realize how hot the Mac Pro is. This orchid was begging for a shot but I wasn’t going to go to any effort to get it. I actually had to get out of the car for this shot, bloody roads not pointing the right way!!

Girlie Side

21 Sep 2008 at 3:28am

Another image from my epic road trip yesterday. Found these tulips in the main street of Nannup. I wanted them to look soft and feminine so had to draw on all my strength not to bloke it up. See I can be sensitive and not just a chauvinistic pig! Shot with the 400mm handheld.

One of the Sheep

20 Sep 2008 at 9:48am

Another drive by shooting, this time in Bridgetown. Fuji and I got up this morning and drove to some of WA’s prettiest towns in search of some killer pics. All shots were taken at iso 400 and handheld from the car window. I only got out to pee!! Have to love this way of shooting. Got about 200 pics all different, all winners…………well maybe a few. These sheep looked great hanging around this tree, managed a few pics as they walked off.
