Some favourite photos from this week

Black and white.


I often lament that I live in part of a conglomeration of suburbs that sometimes stretch on endlessly with little to differentiate between them. I think "if I lived on the coast, as I dream I will one day, I could take the most magnificent photos!" But in the meantime, if you look around a lot, there are still many things to inspire. 
One of my aims in starting a photography course was to improve the photos I take of my family. Well, the kids are always with me and they are willing subjects, so I shouldn't complain! And, my portraits have improved a lot in just a couple of months. 
Yesterday we went to our local sensory gardens for the older kids to work on their movie. While they were shooting with the video camera, I got busy with my camera and my littlest model (who loves having her photo taken thankfully!) In a relatively short amount of time I brought home a lot of shots that I really like. 
The module I'm working on now is going to be a challenging one - low key and high key shots. I'll let you know how I progress :)

Your photos are stunning. I especially like the B&W portrait (though the coloured version is good as well!) You are capturing some wonderful memories. Every improving photographer needs a willing model. Your youngest daughter is doing a wonderful job posing for you!

Thank you for your encouragement Sue, and yes, it certainly helps having a very willing and photogenic model!
