Sea Day







:Flash as fill, 6 images that tell a story. Establishing, close, and medium shots. The trip was to Towra, with my family…here are some more pics, equally as important, but didn’t make the final cut. We had no good bites in the shallows of Towra, whilst sheltering from the winds. Actually we didnt have much fishing luck all day, but great to get out, all the same.






Such a shame to see so much rubbish on the shore of Towra, but as this part of the beach can only really be entered by boat, it doesnt seem to really get looked after. I suppose most of the rubbish comes from careless boat people and littering from people on the other side of the bay.






Jim’s Critique


I dislike to backtrack to a previous image, but since Im handing this in for Jim’s class CUVDIG401A, I thought I better take Jim’s suggestion into consideration. Jim suggested a white background, but the image is creme in tones instead of white. I tried white, but it just didn’t sit right. There are things that I would change about this image if I re-composed. I will consider these things on my future collage’s.

Willow Versions

I’m not really sure if this is a Willow tree, but it does remind me of the Willow plates that I used to eat off as a child. I think the ones from those days have become collectable in their sets. Anyway the tree is in the wetland area, not far from my house. The area is constantly under threat for road construction. While I know growth is a necessity, it may  be sad to see the area go. In the mean time the houses are reasonably cheap around the wetland due to the RTA restrictions. I say reasonably, this is Sydney after all.

The above is photographed on my 5D, and processed in LR and photoshop. The first image is the colours of the eve, pretty much as they were.

My childrens first Anzac Day March. It was an honour to be apart of this day and remember those that have fought and those that have lost their lives through war.

Now, I hate to scare everyone, but after the Anzac parade my son fell whilst walking along a brick wall, and broke his nose. This is my fallen soldier. He’s fine now, just a bit sore.
