I love taking pictures, just love it. And last year I followed the series 'Focus on Life' photos with great interest, so this year I was very keen to join in.
Week One : The Minimalist Photograph :
This week's prompt was to Capture an image using a single subject and my single subject is a snail snoozing on an old bit of wood at an abandoned railway in the Yarra Valley.
I'm really chuffed with how it came out, the colours were captured exactly as I saw them and didn't need tweaking and the little chappy stayed perfectly still while I snapped away. Not bad for a piccie taken with my humble phone! (I had a coffee accident with my camera, aaargh)!
This gorgeous little place enraptured my family with it's rotting floor boards and rusting trains and while i was snapping away happily my two little monkeys were playing 'rocket trains' (closely supervised by Dad of course).
The early evening light was perfect, giving it's summer warmth to everything.
And there were so many little details to capture:
The simple interest of rotting wood.
The beauty of long abandoned cobwebs.
The muted colours of lichen against the aging paint of the train.
