Views of Prague at Twilight

It is hard to believe, but it has been over a month since our trip to Prague. While it was a short European getaway for only a few days, photographically, it was very productive and rewarding, and I certainly landed a few pleasing images in that short time. Life has been quite busy since then... [more]

Dancing House, Prague

Prague's famous Dancing House was one of sights I wanted to see and photograph. I planned to photograph the Dancing House on our last night in Prague, so we headed 1.2km south of our hotel, where I positioned myself for the image I wanted, once the light was right. Here is the image I sought out... [more]

Vítejte v Praze (Welcome to Prague)

We have arrived in Prague, and spent our first day wandering around. The day began with a 5am awakening as usual.  We decided to take advantage of the serenity of the dawn hours in a European city and wander out to the Charles Bridge, which is a five-minute walk from the Charles Bridge Palace, where...

Pleasant Dawn on Sydney Harbour

Since my return to seascaping last week, I have been keen to head back out at dawn to shoot more seascapes. On the one hand, I failed; but on the other hand, I succeeded - at capturing a different kind of image at dawn. Having checked the weather and cloud situation the night before, I... [more]

Capturing the City: Return to Action

During a time of holidays and some special times, my long-dormant urge to get out and capture images has thankfully risen to the surface, and the photographer's itch has become pervasive. I have been wanting to get out and shoot, and of late I have been more drawn towards cityscapes and architecture than any other... [more]

Feeling Itchy

From a photographic perspective, things have been quiet.  A combination of a busy schedule, a change in priorities, and a general lack of motivation, has meant that I have not shot an image for months. Here we are, over four months into 2015, and photographically I have nothing to show for it. Until now, that... [more]
