Seeing Differently Challenge – 14 of 15

Today I’m sharing 3 images for the 14th part of the seeing differently challenge…

I took these images some while back and came across them yesterday – I thought they fit the challenge.

I love capturing the ephemeral… even in a tea cup!

I know this is just a tea cup, but to me it’s not ordinary.ย  This moment will never come again! I love that!

When I was shooting this, I grabbed the camera and set my ISO to 640, as it was the end of the day – shooting handheld – this resulted in noise… but I had to share ๐Ÿ™‚

Finding 15 (different) images throughout October has proved to be really a challenge!! I’m amazed and delighted at what we’ve all found / seen, within our own spaces.

Seeing in a different way – observing – treats us to things that (perhaps?) we miss ordinarily.

If this challenge (idea) appeals to you, please jump in. There is still time.

The challenge wraps up on the 31st October..

I have one more post to share and then on the 31st I’m going to share a gallery of my 15 images for the month and I’m going to pick my favourites from the ones I’ve taken this month.

I’d love to see a gallery of your work too, if you’d care to share – posting on the 31st – and tell us all which of your images are your favourites too.ย  I think this will be a fun way to wrap up our challenge. I do hope you’ve enjoyed seeing differently!

Please let me know if I’ve missed any of your posts.. I am sooo enjoying seeing all the different images and ways of seeing, being posted by everyone! Thanks for joining me this month!

Seeing Differently Challenge – 13 of 15

Today I’m sharing images for the 13th part of the seeing differently challenge…

A few weeks ago, I was out photographing the blossoms in the orchard and then I wandered across to the workshop.

I found this old toolbox – I love the wear and tear of years and the wonderful textures.

This made me think about telling a story with your subject…

Maybe by shooting a part (or even a suggestion) of the subject… you are giving your viewer the opportunity to engage and imagine the rest for themselves…

seeing-differently13_robyngosby-2016Just my thoughts. I know this is something I enjoy doing.

Maybe this is food for thought for you too.

Finding 15 (different) images throughout October is proving to be quite a challenge and a very satisfying one.ย  Using a different lens or point of view offers something more than the usual, especially when you are shooting in your own space. Awesome!

If this challenge (idea) appeals to you, please jump in. You are welcome!ย  Even though we are on the home run, some folks are going to share a gallery after they find their images..

Please let me know if I’ve missed any of your posts.. I know sometimes it happens. I am enjoying seeing all the different images and ways of seeing, being posted by everyone! Thanks for joining me.

I’d better spread my last 2 challenge posts out as we near the end of the month.. ๐Ÿ˜‰ .. and then I’ll share a gallery of the 15 images at the end of the month.

Seeing Differently Challenge – 10 of 15

Today I’m sharing my 10th image of the seeing differently challenge.

Yesterday it was time to play a little and create a little scene… being silly ๐Ÿ™‚

At the scrap heap..
At the scrap heap..

I love taking ordinary items – combining them with toys of some kind and seeing what unfolds… Letting my imagination see, instead of my eyes… Here is what happened yesterday!ย  You can see some of my other ‘being silly’ posts hereย  ๐Ÿ˜€

If this challenge (idea) appeals to you, please jump in. You are welcome!ย  We will be exploring throughout October and we are halfway there!

September ’16 – Behind the scenes…

Hello and welcome to another Behind the Scenes post from me.

This first month of Spring on the tablelands has been very cold, rainy, blustery and grey – thankfully with a few gorgeous sunny days dotted in between.ย  On those sunny days (or when the sun shows itself), we see the beautiful long shadows…

..and the glorious light that I love so much about this place!

The Spring blossoms – ..are gorgeous and I so enjoy watching the stages of blossoming and being close to nature, especially when they are such brightness on a grey day. It always feels like such a privilege.

The Changing Seasons – I’m still in the countryside. For Max’s Changing Seasons I had been photographing one tree throughout the year – but that came to an abrupt halt when I needed to be on the farm for calving in June. So I began looking at another tree – the same type, just in a different place. There is nothing marvelous about this tree (here). It finds it hard in the cold climate…

Here ’tis anyway… the tree’s point of view and a closer look at the bark for this month.

Still LifeI’ve been continuing my Still Life studies and experiments. It’s been so good to have something to focus on (photographically) when it’s so ‘yuk’ outside.

I must say I really have to think about this – I’m used to natural settings but not really creating my own – so… it’s great having the challenge and as usual, I love the light.. and finding it!

Just a few randoms.. and there are plenty that don’t make it ๐Ÿ˜‰

InstagramStill enjoying Instagram – I can honestly say – I didn’t know I would.ย  It seems to be a condensed and abbreviated version of blogging.. Once again you’ll find me over there as @robynwashere ๐Ÿ™‚

Lastly for this month’s behind the scenes – just a little find that I think is amazing!ย  A very tiny weed on the side of my driveway. I had to get the macro lens to ‘see’ it.ย  The flowers are only about 3 – 4mm (maybe 2/8 of an inch?) across.. Once again it was very windy day, but here’s what I found by looking closer… Even beauty in the weeds.

Well, it’s now October..

If you’re like me and the grey and cold weather is not your favourite time of year – try finding what is right in front of you – again, like me you might be surprised ๐Ÿ™‚

So… have a great one, wherever you are!
