Five on 5 – May

Today it was pouring!  My photography club had one of our monthly photowalks planned, and I have to admit that I headed off in the rain hoping that no one else would turn up.  However there were three other (fool?)hardy souls there and so we headed off for a walk along the harbour.  At first it wasn’t that bad, but then the rain really set in.  We didn’t make it very far along the walkway – just as far as the statue of the dog keeping an eye out over the harbour.  We took a few photos and decided to shelter among the trees and wait to capture a few shots of the big ship to be towed out to sea.  With that the rain really started to get heavy, so it was a brisk walk back to the stadium cafe for the usual drink and chat to end the photowalk.

Despite getting saturated, it was a fun morning and I have this month’s Five on 5 to prove it.

Five on 5 – March

I’m posting this a day late, because I was a bit too tired last night to post this month’s Five on 5 pics.  I had a great night up on Mt Cargill with some people from the Dunedin Photographic Society watching the sun set and the city lights sparkle.  There was mention of a possible comet sighting, but the cloud cover put paid to any chance of that.  However, the night was so mild it was wonderful to stand on top of the mount and watch the city going about its business below.

We have been blessed with such beautiful sunny weather lately, but the last couple of days have brought some much needed rain – especially for the garden.  This is the first year I’ve had a vege garden and it’s been so much fun watching the plants grow over summer.  We are enjoying the rewards now, harvesting lots of yummy things to eat.  Anyway, I thought I would use this month’s Five on 5 to take a closer look at what’s going on in the garden.

It was a stunning summer day here in Dunedin today, so what better to do than head to the beach… along with everyone else!  St Clair was packed and parking was at a premium, but I managed to find a spot and hit the sand with my camera.  I’m still getting to grips with my new K5, but am loving it.  Here’s my 5 favourite photos from today’s outing.

Five on 5 – December

So today was the 5th of December and I had been thinking for the last few days about what I would pick as the subject for this month’s Five on 5: the garden (there are lots of veges popping up, just asking to be photographed), the details (I’ve been doing a few shoots lately where I’m looking for the small details, rather than my usual wider landscape shots), colours, signs… Continue reading
