Quiet Thursdays

I really look forward to Thursdays, it means Monochrome Madness is done for another week and I can just relax, or play with some photos on the computer, which is what I have been doing.  Actually I did more of it yesterday.  I like seeing what I can get.

I’m afraid it is not a very exciting image.  It is the doorway to ANZAC House in Collins Street in the city of Melbourne.  I took this image one Sunday during a Social Snappers Photography Excursion.  I do love the opportunities I get to take photos on these excursions.  My photography catalog has grown so much because of them.  I know I go on about them a lot, but I do want them to be successful. Funny how people in Melbourne are so hard to find.

Oh well, back to the image.  I’ve been trying a few things, incorporating some old techniques and then looking at some new ones.  Trying to decide what I want to be important in an image.  I am happy with quite a few aspects, and glad that I finally found some time to try them out.  I know I will have more time in the weeks to come with things winding down for Christmas and January is often a slow time for me.

I have also done a great deal of work on another image for Stacy’s AB Friday, but you will have to wait around 36 hours to see it, and it will be on my other blog.  You will also be able to see most of the entries on Stacy’s blog, Visual Venturing, again, you will have to wait for Friday where Stacy is.

I plan on taking it easy for the rest of the day, I hope you can too.

  2. Very nice symmetrical image. There is a sturdiness about this building and door. You expecting them to be heavy and difficult to open.

  5. I like the images! I’m taking it easy now, after driving home from northern California, dodging our “storm of the century.” Looks like we are starting to get some actual winter.

    • Lucky you missed the storm, I saw that you went to a winery, nice, they are big here too. I wish I drank more wine. What was the storm?

      • The storm isn’t much here, but it’s hammering the redwood forest with the Avenue of the Giants where we visited. Mendocino and Fort Brag too, but possibly not too bad. We’ll see. I want to take you to these areas! It reminded me so much of the Great Ocean Road adventure we had.

      • Sounds like a great spot Nia, I’ve heard of the Giants, the redwood forests, I hear they are amazing. I am glad you missed the storm.

  6. It is a beautiful photo, with several nuances of brown and the shine of the glasses and of the granite frame. Well done, Leanne! 🙂

  9. I love the tree reflection in the door and how the panes of the door have a glowy feel to them.

  12. I just love the vintage feel to this image. It does bring to mind WWI and how our ANZACS went of to war. 😀

    • Oh thank you Raewyn, I wasn’t sure about it, but I like what you have said. I must admit the image for me was more about trying some things and getting some things to work. 😀
