Tuesday’s Bits and Bobs: Things are Starting to Happen

It is Tuesday again, and while this is January and not a lot is really happening, I am getting things prepared and some things are changing.  It is a very busy week, so today will be quick.

Newsletter

I have just about done the newsletter, and now that I have all the email addresses entered I can get on with just the newsletter.  It is going to be a brief one the first time I think, but hopefully they will get better as I do more.  I have blairgowrie-pearse-beach-rocks-waves-595added a widget to the side panel and if you click on that you can add your name and email to receive the newsletter.

Social Snappers

I have put up more information for all the Social Snappers excursions this coming term, so you are interested take a look at the site, for the Thursday outings and the Sunday outings. I really hope some of you would love to join me.

 New York

blairgowrie-pearse-beach-rocks-waves-598I have organised my passport, now just waiting for it to arrive, however, there may be some changes to the trip, I can’t say anything yet, but when I know I will let you know.

Book

The new year is here and it is time I started getting serious about the book.  I have to make a time with the council to talk to them about my plans for the book and see if it’s going in the direction that they would be happy with.  So I will start working on that soon.

Busy

I have been going out and taking photos every chance I can and it has meant that I haven’t had a lot of time to get on with other things. Tonight I am in Blairgowriblairgowrie-pearse-beach-rocks-waves-597e marvelling over a new beach I found today.  It is amazing, and I think I will need to come back.  I took a few photos, but the tide was sort of rushing at me, so I didn’t hang around for too long, but the photos in this post are from that beach.  A couple of long exposures and some waves shots.

I hope you are busy where you are.

    • Yes, hopefully things will pay off and it will be a very rewarding year. Thank you Carol.

      January 20, 2015
  17. I’m a beach lover myself and I really enjoyed your photographs. Where I live currently in Pittsburgh, Pa, we don’t have a beach so looking at your photos, inspires me for my and my wife’s plan of moving near a beach later this year. Awesome work!

    January 21, 2015
    • I sometimes wished I lived closer, but I like being close to the city, then again the beach is only an hour and half away, so not too bad. I hope you get to live closer, good luck.

      January 21, 2015
      • Oh wow, that’s cool that you go to the beach, with it being an hour and a half away. I would too!

        January 21, 2015
      • Yeah, I try to, I love photographing it too. Wish it was closer for sunrise though.

        January 21, 2015
  18. These are fabulous shots! And I love that they are in “monochrome”!

    January 21, 2015
    • They were screaming monochrome to me, I don’t know, I keep seeing monochrome images everywhere these days.

      January 21, 2015
      • I can certainly understand that! Some shots really scream monochrome! I find myslef getting a bit lost trying for monochrome. 🙂

        January 22, 2015
      • They do, though part of it was the filters had left a little magenta, so I thought, yep, monochrome. I think you just have to keep trying things and doing things, see what works. I am getting better at it, and I took some photos the other day and I was thinking they might all end up monochrome, they could be good images for that. 🙂

        January 22, 2015
  19. What a glorious looking beach, Leanne! The beaches that are close to me don’t have waves like that…we are sheltered by Vancouver Island so the big waves that the Pacific might deliver are gone by the time they get to us. Lovely wave captures!

    January 22, 2015
    • It was a great find Katrina, and I can’t wait to go back and discover more there. The bay area in Melbourne is like that, the waves are rather pathetic. I have to travel about an hour and half to get those waves, which is fine, I don’t mind doing that, just hate doing it first thing in the morning, when I want to get a sunrise. then it can be horrible. thanks Katrina, I now know someone who lives close by, so hopefully getting some sunrise shots will be much easier in the future.
