Fridays Bits and Bobs
It has been a slow week really, the weather hasn’t been great again, though we did have a lovely couple of days earlier, it has turned again and now the weather is horrible. They are even predicting snow here today, well not here, but in the nearby mountains. We were thinking of taking a drive, but I think we might stay home with the heater on today. Too cold. Nice to see the sun symbol appearing on the weather forecast a lot next week, so I will have to make sure I make the most of it. I think lots of people are sick of the rain here in Melbourne. If I could send it elsewhere, I would.
I have been out photographing the stars, or rather the Milky Way. As I said in yesterdays post it was the new moon last weekend and I do try to get a few times. I went to Sorrento, but I also went to Aireys Inlet on Monday with John. I will be showing those photos tomorrow, however, if you follow me on Facebook or Google+ you will have already seen one of the photos I did with the lighthouse and the Milky Way.
I’ve been thinking about doing this for a while. I’ve been searching around to try and find grants and projects that I can do. I think my photography is in a transition stage and there are projects that I would like to pursue. To do the projects, I think I need to see if I can get some grants, so I have been searching the internet for what grants are available, when they are available and if I can apply for them.
Word of warning though, if you find sites that say they will help you get grants, do some research and make sure you find out what they are like. They will ask you for money, and you shouldn’t need to pay money to get grants. I found one, and then did some reviews and the words scam just kept coming up in association with them. So be careful.
As you can see this post is full of photos of cakes and chocolate. I took these images a few weeks ago when I was doing a One on One in the city. I love doing close ups of the cakes. I wish I could more and not behind a window, but I don’t really cook. Though every time I photograph the shop window, I get home and look at the photos and think I want to do more of this. I might have to start small, little cakes and see how I go. I don’t want to be a food photographer, but I like doing some aspects of it. Nearly all the photos are taken through the Hopetoun Tea Rooms window, though the chocolate ones are from the windows of Haigh’s Chocolate.
That is about all I have for you today. So I will stay warm today and I think stay indoors. I think I might work on some photos. I hope I haven’t made you too hungry, not sure what I would have from that window, but I think I might have to try a Raspberry Tart one day. Have a good Friday.
