Quiet Thursday’s: Tea and Packing Up

melbourne-hopetoun-tearooms-block-arcare-1026

Today is going to be a busy day, ahead of an even busier weekend. I’m off to Jan Juc for the weekend with Chris from sv-takeiteasy. We have star trails, long exposures, and well lots of photos to take. We are going to try going further and seeing what we can get. I’m exhausted just thinking about it. It should be good though. Lots of photos. I’m hoping we can get back to the lighthouse at Airey’s Inlet as well.

I haven’t been putting up a lot of photos on Social Media this week. I got distracted trying to get my computer fixed, which it seems to be now. I turned it off last night and this morning it turned back on no problems. Β I still have the high resolution that I was meant to get with my monitor, so all good really. Good to get the computer all going properly.

For the photos today I am going to show you one I did do and put up.

I spent quite a bit of time on this image.There were so many reflections in the window and it was hard. Of course it isn’t really this dark, but I wanted to concentrate on all the cakes. I haven’t done an image like this for a long time, and it was good to just play and see what I could get. I think I spent all morning on it.

Of course, what would the Tea Rooms window be without all the cakes. So I apologize if this makes you hungry. I do love photographing this window. As I said before the reflections were really bad and I took my polarizer with me. I put it on, but I couldn’t really see that it was making any difference to them. Maybe I don’t know what I’m doing with it. Hopefully the cakes just stand out.

I’m off, I will leave you with a gallery now. I hope you have a quieter day that I think I’m going to have.

  8. You’d better bring some of those cakes for sustenance! You know what’s in store: walking, climbing, red wine, early rises, more stairs, gullies, waterfalls, milky way, drowning our sorrows because we might not get the aurora! Cakes…. we need cakes!

    June 25, 2015
    • Are you really sure that is necessary, we won’t get up those hills. LOL We will have to drown our sorrows with red wine and chocolate I think.

    Marvelous shots! I love the “black hue” surrounding the desserts on the window. Well done!

  15. Yummy!

  16. You really did a fantastic job with this. Are all the shots taken from the window, or did you stage it?

    June 28, 2015
    • Thank you, no they were all taken from the window, I wish I could stage it with those cakes, that would be amazing.

      June 28, 2015
      • If I had to wonder if they were staged, you know how great those shots are, food is one of the most difficult things to shoot. Especially cooked food in my humble opinion.

        June 28, 2015
      • Thank you, I like doing cakes like this, but I don’t think I would be very good at setting up food for photography. I agree, I think it is very hard.
