A piece of work of the day 24

So I first had got base idea of this when I read something about identity crisis sometime ago.

I started drawing but then I got stuck developing the image (and how to express with pastel and pens), so I put it aside for a couple of weeks.

The other day, I made a home-made Japanese mochi-sweets for someone who loves it.

Such a weird, while was munching it with a scoop of ice cream served together, a kind of rough image came back.  Eventually it ended up as below.  Magic of sweets did it.  :p

The idea behind this is, that everyone has the unique and beautiful diamond in the soul.

Sydney icons on the window

One of whats most fun part photographing city area is to see a lot of reflections.

This photo was taken from the side of a building in city.  Actually, this building is my favourite for photography purpose and I had taken a couple of shots of Queen Victoria Building and / or Sydney Centre Point (Sydney Tower) before.

I processed the photo into black and white adjusting brightness, contrast, and saturations.  The historic dome shaped roof of Queen Victoria Building looked like a little sublimed in clouds in background.

I will also paste the link of one of old posts which I introduced another shot of reflections by the building.

This is my contribution to RDP Monday: SUBLIME.

Full moon of the month

I missed taking her at moon rise on the full moon night because the forecast said that the evening would have been cloudy and I did not bring my camera when I left house in the morning.  The forecast ended not correct that the beautiful full moon rose and I admired her beauty at the house as cooking dinner.

I got this chance next day at dawn.  The moon was already set on the west of the skies but was still there clearly.  Her beaming light could not be missed!

I think I have missed photographing full moon number of times (months?) this year.  Sky condition was main reason of why, but I was not be able to make chances for doing it either (I would like to photograph just after the moon rise).

With the hope I will get some shots for 2 more full moons to come for 2018….

Thank you for stopping by.

A lone dragon stays aloft

…or this guy is on duty patrolling the coastline, perhaps..

This photo is not great because the angle that I caught him stayed at the edge of the cliff,  also caught the rock platform in straight line, and it made the his presence assimilated in background.  Oh well, I could not help it as there was a fence laid between us and I concluded that I could not train my lens in better position than this.

Also, often my daydreaming head get a mini story in the head, when I catch non-human lives with my eye-balls.  Earlier the day before I caught this dragon, I saw the three seagulls at the local beach, and I instantly came up the idea to put them the role as Lifeguard ( please also in here ).   They were charmers driving me nuts developing trifle short stories in the head (and I certainly love doing that ;-)).

Thank you for WordPress friends for sharing your views to the photo of the dragon!

I took back to the image and gave it try a bit more edit, which turned to this.

I am happy with this in hue, contrast, and composition.  🙂

Anyway, thank you for stopping by.

View at Point Danger

I did not think that i really enjoyed taking shoreline photos at Point Danger; the headland locating at the south end of Queensland state.

Here are collections of which I particularly like for the way how waves were caught by long exposures.

Did you find any one of which caught your eyes? 🙂

Thank you for stopping by.

 

Views at Tumgun Lookout

I passed by local surfers at the walk path in Burleigh Head National Park, most of whom scurried the path reaching for the point beneath Tumgun Lookout.  They then rushed down the graveled slope to the seashore and puddled the board to catch the wave.

The below photo caught the shoreline looked down from Tumgun Lookout.  I enjoyed seeing various patterns appeared and swept by waves.  I also enjoyed seeing dotted local surfers on the water paddled and surfed.

If you move your eyes to the right, you will see the Gold Coast shoreline toward the end which is at Snapper Rocks.  Underneath the lookout is the entry point of Tallebudgera Creek, that was taken in deep emerald and blue and was not cold (yes, I touched the water before I came to this lookout).

It was a nice walk of total 2 hours.

Thank you for stopping by.
