I've been trying to share some photos I've taken recently with some friends but to share pics through snapfish or facebook it seems you have to create an account. How bloody annoying is that? So I thought bugger that, I'll just do a blog post.
I have no idea if photobucket is the same or not. Hopefully one of you guys (Neo, Tah or Transfrmr) will be able to enlighten me on the best way to share pics without running into all this crap. You know how useless I am when it comes to technamological things like this, I'm lucky I've got you guys round ;-)
Okies, here goes (and sorry to Acci in advance)
The boys were mucking about with my camera, taking pics of the Levin and GTR with a 15 sec exposure time. It looked awesome when a car drove past in the background.
These next ones were from across the street. We loved the fact that the tree was outlined against the blue sky and we had fun turning on different lights on the cars and seeing the effect.
Mike flicked on his fog lights for just a second in this pic.
They must get some kick-arse fog in Japan to need fog lights like these...
Kat and I...you've all seen a billion shots like this before but still, we keep on taking them.
Kat sneaking up on her Mike.
Christian avoiding the camera, as usual.
Got him (kind of).
The following shots are of Jacoby Park up near Mundaring. I thought I'd posted them here before but obviously not.
I love the pine plantation thing they've got going on. Jacoby Park is my favourite place in the whole world. I love going there. It's just so beautiful.
Spider web. This was my fist attempt at the manual focus thingy. As you can see, it didn't work out the best.
This hill is actually quite steep but you know how it is, photos just can't capture it. Standing at the top though, the pine needles are quite slippery and you feel like you're going to just topple over. It's awesome being up there and the climb is heaps of fun.
This is 'The Big Tree' in the middle of the park. She's lost most of her leaves because it's winter but in summer she's really beautiful.
The little creek that runs through the park.
Gotta love the pipeline. When we were kids we'd take towels with us and 'slide down' the pipe. Of course, it's too rough to really slide so you kind of just scoot down on your arse. Again, in real life it's much steeper than depicted here. With my intense fear of heights I really don't know what the hell I was thinking as a kid...
Just a another view from the top of the hill.
Boo and I are kindred spirits. We just can't go past graffiti without getting a snapshot...
Baby maggie. Gotta love my zoom.
My old dog Sam used to love swimming in this dam...
I love taking photos of water and seeing the reflections that you get.
Naked tree! Cover your shame!
I love the stark difference between the white gums and the other trees.
I haven't played with the macro setting yet (I need a tripod first) but I did have fun playing about with the manual zoom.
Anyway, that's it for now. Sorry bout the two posts in two days and the ridiculous amount of photos. Catch you later loves.
