Here's my Shadow Shot Sunday #180


"Lights! Camera! Shadow Shot!" An odd looking light fitting, combined with the shadow looked a little like a weird bug creature to me. A dancing bug at that!

Happy Sunday!

Shadow Shot Sunday #179

Aaarrrrgh! Sorry once again for their being no Shadow Gallery collages! The time I had set aside to draft the post I was having terrible troubles accessing blogger / blogspot blogs to copy and save photos. I'm not sure if it was a blogspot platform issue or my internet connection was a bit patchy at the time, but I threw a silly little tantrum and gave up. But hey at least you guys didn't have to witness my tantrum. I could have filmed myself having a meltdown & posted the vid here ;)

Here's my Shadow Shot Sunday #179


A quiet mid-morning ferry trip. The usual times I commute on these ferries I struggle to find a vacant seat, so this indeed was a very pleasant change!

"We may have all come on different ships, but we're in the same boat now"
- Martin Luther King, Jr.

Happy Sunday!

Here's my Shadow Shot Sunday #178


An early morning coffee shadow. The last couple of days have been a little difficult to catch shadows due to cloudy and stormy weather so I've had to reuse this pic that I posted to twitter earlier in the week. I seem to twitpic a lot of coffee and food. As one does on twitter. Just for fun I've compiled a collage of some of the coffee pics I've tweeted. These being ones I've taken at cafes where I've really enjoyed the coffee and can wholeheartedly recommend...


1. Next Door, Paddington 2. Desmond & Molly Jones, Woolloongabba 3. Groove Cafe, Annerley 4. The Brown Dog, Woolloongabba 5. Blackstar, West End 6. The Stove, West End 7. The Joynt, South Brisbane 8. Paladar Cafe, South Brisbane 9. Lady Marmalade, Stones Corner

According to my findings (which has involved copious amounts of dedicated coffee consumption) the best coffee in Brisbane can be found south of the river. There may be places in north Brisbane serving awesome coffee as well, but sadly I've just not stumbled upon them. I will happily continue searching though!

Happy Sunday!

double the fun




Here are my first attempts at double exposures. I wish I could say that these were created the old fashioned way using a film camera but I created them digitally. One day I will try multiple exposures using the film method. It's on my ever-growing to-do-list! Until then I'll continue experimenting this way.

Here's my Shadow Shot Sunday #176


Here's a shadow cast from my old Catwoman toy. I flipped it over to look at the year it was released and was surprised to discover it was 1991. That officially makes it vintage this year. Maybe I'll pop it on Ebay. I may score 5 bucks for it!
