Quiet Thursdays: A Very Quiet One

edithvale-beach-houses-huts-grasses

The trip to my mum’s has been good, the car was serviced and I have two new tyres on the front. It is so much cheaper to get things done up here than it is in the city. The bonus is that I also get to spend some time with my mum. Today I’m heading back, it has been a quick visit, unfortunately, and I didn’t get many chances to go out and take photos, but I think I will come back when I get back from the States.

One thing that’s been good has been that I have had time to write and have managed to write three articles fro dPS, so I’m happy with that. I have more to write, so it will be good to get ahead. I have a big job to work on for someone next week, so lots of processing. I love that kind of work, and I know you know I will be in my element.

The photos have all been done this week, and the following two were something I was thinking of doing for Monochrome Madness.

This is Cape Otway Lighthouse on a dark stormy day. I did the black and white one first then put the colour back in.  In the end I decided to go with the other image.

I’ve been spending some more time down along the shore near Mordialloc and one of these is an Instagram photo and the other two were done using my reverse processing.

These are three more Instagram photos that I’ve done while here. The train tracks coming into town, I do that every time I come, stop on the tracks and take a photo. The other two were taken on a day out, but more about that on the weekend. I had to stop and take a photo of the sign announcing the town coming up, Galah, such a weird name for a town.  The other is the Underbool pub.

The old church in Woomelang. I tried to do some long exposures of it yesterday, but the weather was a bit to variable and I got rained on twice and then bright sunshine in between, it was a bit tricky. I did several long exposures and then put three together. I’m trying out some new things.

As I said today I am travelling home, but I will also be stopping off in Castlemaine to spend sometime with Bev another WP blogger, and she is going to take me around where she is. I know we will have a lot of fun, so it is going to be a great day. I therefore will be away from the computer and have no internet access. I will respond to comments when I get home later tonight. I hope you have a lovely day planned and it is fun.  Take care.

        Presumably no longer in use?

        August 13, 2015
      • No, hasn’t been used for years. Someone was trying to fix it up, but did a little bit and then gave up.

  13. Galah is actually a bird – better known as a rose-breasted cockatoo, or perhaps that’s what makes the name weird? Also, I think I missed the blog post on this, but what’s reverse processing?

    August 13, 2015
    • Yeah, I know what a galah is, they are also what you call people who are mucking around, a pack of galahs, so it is so strange to find a town called that. I haven’t done a post on reverse processing, it is a technique I am working on. Thank you.
