It’s been a funny time

It seems I’m a bit all over the place at the moment. The blog is taking a bit of a back seat and while I don’t mean it too, I am finding myself distracted by other things. So let’s have an update and see what is happening.

Banyule Flats Book

Things are coming to a head with it and I feel like we are on the run to the finish line. I don’t have a date for completion, some things that are out of my control have happened, but I continue on and get it as close to completion as I can. We have a layout, we just need to work on that now.

So, right now I don’t know when the book will be published, but hopefully you and I won’t have to wait too long.

Dynamic Range Magazine

I’m also very busy getting the next issue of the magazine ready. I realised the other day that the magazine has been a reality for over 12 months now. The idea was conceived about this time last year. Took a while to get the first issue out, but we did. Now we are getting the fourth issue ready to publish.

Writers Wanted and Ideas for Articles

We just wanted to let you know that we are always looking for writers. There are guidelines on my website, or here is the link. Not everyone can write for a magazine, but if you are happy to work with us, we are happy to work with you. That might mean that you have to rewrite your article several times, but we want the best we can get from you.

We are always looking for suggestions too, so if you have any ideas for articles, then let us know as well. You can send your ideas to dynamicrangemagazine@gmail.com.

Changes to the Blog

I’m thinking of making some more changes to this blog. Time is short and I’m finding the Introduction posts hard to do. I have trouble finding people sometimes, so we might just do them once a month.

I think I want to do more on my other blog, the one on my website. I like the idea of sharing ideas and my artwork with you there. It has been great to see lots of you over there, so please keep going. The rest of you, would love to see you there as well.

I might even start doing monochrome madness over there. I don’t know at this stage. I have more space and more control over on that blog. Someone here said recently that they are getting sick of all the changes that Automatic are doing WordPress.com and I have to say I am too. You never know what you will wake up to.

So please, if you like my work and like what I do please consider subscribing here.

Teaching

Last weekend I spent Sunday night teaching someone how to use a DSLR. They had never had one before, so it was all new. Still good fun, which leads me to the photos for this article.

Photos

The photos were taken in the city last week. We started late in the afternoon and we went until it was dark. We spent our time along the river, which is always a great place for photos, especially at night.

All images were taken with the Nikon 28-300mm lens.

Quiet Thursday – Up in the Air

It is getting late in the day, and it is one of those days that I like to take things easy, so for today I have a photo for you that I did earlier in the week.  I know writers like images that give them inspiration for poems or short stories, so I have another photo for that.  It is a composite and you can interpret it as you will.

The same applies as in previous posts like these, you can leave links in the comments sections.  Pingbacks don’t really work the way they used to, so it is best to leave links in the comments section.  Feel free to put the image on your blog, just please give me credit for the image, if that is okay.  So over to you.

Inspiring Quiet Thursdays

Just recently I have been doing some images so the writers who follow me can try and respond to the image with some writing. I know these posts are more for the writers, and I hope you don’t mind, though while doing the processing on this image I recorded what I did, and will put a short video of it on my other blog later today.  I must warn you, the video will be speed up a lot, so you will just get an idea of what I did.

I hope the writers here find this image interesting enough to write about.  I love this old building and while I was taking this image the idea came to me. For the photographers, this is something I really want to do more of.  I like planning and executing images like this.

As in other weeks, please leave your poems, or links here in the comments section so other people can enjoy what you have written. I look forward to seeing what you have written.

Some Inspire Words More Than Others

Last weeks image to get people writing seemed to be a bit of a hit, so I thought I would try it again and I was asked if I would do it more often.  I don’t know if I will do it every week, but I will try and do it more often.  So today I have something completely different for you.

This is something I photographed last week.  I was trying something with my daughter and I like the look and think there is potential there, and I have other photos that I want to work on.  I have done one like this for a long time and it was nice to plan a photo shoot like this again.

Last week lots of people responded to the photo that I posted and again, today, I invite you to do the same to this one.  Make of it as you will.

Leave links or the poems in the comments section here so others can share what you have written.  If you are reading what someone has written and like it or want to say something, that would be fantastic as well.

If you missed all the great poems and stories  then here is a link to the post last week, A Photo That Inspires Words.  I said I would put the links here, but there were so many and I really didn’t think it through, so from now on when I do these, just leave them here in the comments section.

Get those fingers moving.  I hope you find some inspiration.
