Aan my Afrikaanssprekende blogvriende – ek gaan my post in Engels doen, aangesien die meeste van my volgers fotograwe van oorsee is. Ek wil byvoeg dat ek vir ‘n paar weke gaan uitsit van blogging, aangesien ek ‘n operasie gaan kry aan my regterskouer. My vingers moet rus, want daar word aan die senuwees gewerk.
Since I started photo blogging, I have met a variety of persons all over the world. I know when it snows in Oregon, I learnt that skwurrel is acceptable in Scotland. I have also met people in Queensland, Australia and an Afrikaans blogger in Nieu-Zeeland.
Taking photos have opened my eyes to the world around me. I’m noticing colours, numbers, artwork and scenes. It has always been there, I just did not see it. Learning from experienced photographers have also developed my hitherto unknown eye for flowers, macros, squares and much more.
So, because I will be out of action for a while due an upcoming shoulder operation, I want to thank Cee, Jeff, Becky, Hammad, Catherine, citysonnet and others for your inspiration.
Cee, this is the view I wake up to every morning from my bed.
flowers are my passion. I learnt to crop , square and do macros
same flower macroed twice
These two grasshoppers were caught cuddling after the act. Watch the hand in the panties (giggle)
I learnt to use in and out of focus to enhance my picture and finally, since I don’t like black and whites, I learnt from Cee’s last post, how to look for a black and white possibility. Hope it meet your standards.
I’ve learnt that partials can also be stunning.
see how the squares in the fencing high light the weather vane.
And I managed to keep watch of the light to catch reflections.
and this is my evening sky from my front door.
Till next time, stay well please.
