Up for Discussion: Favourite Places to Take Photos
Can you believe it I’ve had a major computer problem and have to reinstall everything. I downloaded something and got a virus that we could not get rid of, and the only option was to start from scratch. It is going to take me a couple of days get everything back to normal before I got the bug. I just hope it is gone now.
So a short post today, and thought we might extend the post I did a few weeks ago where we talked about taking photos in your backyard, or around where you live, but I think we all have places that are not close that we love to go and take photos.I thought we could look at those places that we like to go and take photos, then maybe why.
If I had to tell you the places where I like to go and take photos, I think there would be three. I know these are places that I love planning to go to and finding new places to photograph.
This is the area I’ve been to a lot, and perhaps because I grew up around the area there is a special affinity to the place for me. I find this once prosperous area fascinating, perhaps because it is such a harsh area environmentally. The area is having big problems with salt and now the landscape is changing again. It is quite interesting, though having my mum still up there means I can visit anytime I like, get accommodation and just take photos.
I love going into the city of Melbourne and exploring what is there, taking photos. It is great photographing the same things over, though they always seem different. Then there are the new discovers when you find some new area that you didn’t realize was there before. I haven’t explored it nearly enough and I really need to do a lot more.
The Victorian Coast
The coast along Victoria is quite amazing really. There are areas where it is really rough and other areas where it is calm and gentle. The weather can change the mood of the sea and I like that I never know what I will get. There is a real unpredictableness about it. I know that isn’t a word, but that is what I think.
They are in no particular order, but they are probably my three favourites places away from where I live. I will travel to them, stay there, do what is necessary to take photos there.
Do you have favourite places that you like to go and take photos of? Why do you like them.
Sorry this is a quick one today, as I said, my computer is starting from scratch and I have a lot of work to do on it. I also have to spend some time with my mum, she arrived yesterday. So much to do. I won’t be going to any of my favourite places today or this weekend. Here are some photos from those places.
