Quiet Thursday’s: Taking it Easy
You all know that I am working hard at the moment, but that doesn’t mean I’m not also trying to take it easy and make sure I have some time for myself as well. I had a lot of time last week to relax and just take photos. This week has been about getting things ready and moving forward with some projects. Things are happening which is good.
I haven’t put a lot of photos up on Social Media this last week, but will show you what I have done. I did take some photos with my phone that I processed and will show as well.
This was taken on Saturday at Seaford Pier. I was using my really wide angle lens and shot the rock in front, though the rock was only about 15cm high. I like the way it looks a lot bigger.
From the trip to the Twelve Apostles this is the only one I’ve really processed so far. I did put this up in a group that I am in. The apostles are quite amazing. There is a sign that says there are still 12, but you can’t see them all as some are in bays and hidden. I don’t think it really matters, they are still amazing. Ones that have been there for a long time are falling down, and new ones are forming. The platform we were on will be one in the future.
The Instagram photos. I do like seeing what you can do with Instagram, but I don’t think I will put any images that I think are really good on it. I still don’t like their terms and conditions, but these images are nice, but they aren’t great. There is one from the Twelve Apostles and the third one was taken at Princes Pier. The second one was near Loch Ard Gorge and the two parts in the middle used to be an arch, but recently the arch broke and now they stand alone. Apparently they have been named Tom and Eva, after the two survivors of the Loch Ard shipwreck.
These are all photos taken with my phone. The first image of the Twelve Apostles I processed using Snapseed on my phone. The other three were taken with the phone, but then moved onto my computer and processed quickly with Photoshop. The second image is Razorback which is close to Loch Ard Gorge as well, actually very close. The third one I had never been to before, The Arch, and is on the other side of Port Campbell. We found it when we were driving looking for London Bridge, the last image. I like the way the arch seems to have its own waterfall. The last is London Bridge and it used to be connected to the mainland. I walked on it as a teenager. Apparently two people were stranded on it when it collapsed and had to be airlifted off it.
Social Media is a great thing, and a fun way to show where we have been. I really like doing that. Karen and I had a lot fun putting up photos, though the most pathetic thing you would’ve seen was us trying to do a selfie, so funny, we just couldn’t do it.
