Two Tramps In Mud Time By Robert Frost

“The sun was warm but the wind was chill.

You know how it is with an April day.

When the sun is out and the wind is still,

You’re one month on in the middle of May.

But if you so much as dare to speak,

a cloud come over the sunlit arch,

And wind comes off a frozen peak,

And you’re two months back in the middle of March.”

Weekly Photo Challenge: Escape


“Hi Inge, colors to escape from monochrome …,” said Frizztext on his comment at my previous post, Weekly Photo Challenge (WPC): Colour.

Hmmm…that is a great idea to join this week theme of WPC: Escape! But I decided to chose monochrome to escape from colours.

So here my entry for this week theme:

Bear it in mind that I am in a learning process to understand about B&W photos. I’ll be back with another post of what I’ve learned so far. So any feedback or constructive comments are welcome. Thank you in advance. 🙂

Have a great weekend ahead. 🙂

*Camera: Nikon D3100 and E10i

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Black and White or Sepia Tones

Image


This is my very first time joining Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge. The reason why I join it for this week theme is because I’m currently forcing myself to shooting in Black and White photos as I’ve mentioned it on my early post here: Ongoing Project.

To me shooting in B&W mode is more complicated than the colour one.

Here my entry for Black and White or Sepia Tones theme:

Hope you enjoyed it. 🙂

I took those pictures of roses yesterday before sunset in a cloudy weather. I used Tamron AF 70-300mm and set my white balance for a cloudy one and played with its temperature colours to see the difference that it could made by.

I didn’t know how to set the temperature colours on my camera until one of very best friends of mine, Campanulla Della Anna, mentioned it in our discussions about photogaphy and also by reading this one of good articles: Understanding White Balance by Cambridge in Colour.

The picture in the middle is a RAW file and I edited it with Picassa by tuning its shadows and fill light up.

Do you like my experiments or would you like to give me any suggestions to improve my photography skills? Your comment will be much appreciated!

Special thanks to my friend Campanulladellaanna.

Have a great weekend!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Wrong

Two days ago I was walking down to a canal for a walk and taking some pictures. As I walked down by I saw a lot of rubbish on the canal like these two photos below:

Rubbish

My Weekly Photo Challenge: Wrong

Another rubbish

That is totally wrong, isn’t it?

While I was busy observing for interesting object or scene to photograph on my way back home I saw some branches with the flowers and leaves that looked good to be photographed with the sky as a background. Without thinking or checking the setting on my camera, I just pointed it straight away to the scene and here the result:

My Weekly Photo Challenge: Wrong

Overexposured

My Weekly Photo Challenge: Wrong

Another overexposured

Later I found that the setting on my camera at the time caused my photos overexposure on the result.

Oh well, thanks to Weekly Photo Challenge with their theme for this week: Wrong.

 

Travel theme: Flowers

Image


So this week’s travel theme should be a fairly easy, and hopefully joyful one.

That’s what Ailsa wrote at the end of her post, Travel theme: Flowers.

It’s is very easy theme indeed but confusing at the same time because I have lots and lots photos collection of the flowers. It is an object that I love the most to photograph.

Here my photos collection. Some of them I don’t know their names.

I’m totally mad about flowers! Hope you enjoy them! 🙂

Weekly Photo Challenge: Create


This week theme of Weekly Photo Challenge is CREATE. So I wanted to upload three different types of photos of mine in order to interpret the theme.

Here we go!

Last Sunday I and five friends of mine were going to The National White Water Centre for rafting. The centre is located on the River Tryweryn in Snowdonia, Wales. We were doing rafting for about two hours and it CREATED so much fun and excitement! We enjoyed it so much and we had a good laugh together. That’s the first one.

Rafting with friends

The second one is the photo of my solar powered lanterns that I just bought last weekend and put them on my back garden. The colour of the lights keep changing and it’s really nice to watch it. I shot it from my first floor. Obviously I didn’t create those lanterns. By putting them on my back garden then it is a part of my CREATION to decorate for, LOL.

My Weekly Photo Challenge: Create

The final one is about the nature. Who does CREATE the nature? Whoever the Master behind the nature, I always admire it! Every time I admire them I always remember How Great Thou Art‘s song.
