White Flowers

Some of the whites I have on my collections.

I first received my Nikon Camera as a gift from a friend, I was so excited, couldn’t wait to try it out. When it was switched on, I realised I didn’t know anything about using it or taking good photos. This was my first closeup shot “Whiteman’s beard” during the day. Photo #1
Photo #2. Could not remember the name of this particular one. During my first photography trials, the close-up shots were the only ones I was interested in capturing.
This particular image is been shared, so I will not take credit for the shot but I just love it.
These I have grown in my backyard for as long as I can remember.

Winter Photos

Most times the work commitments take up the time so I end up slacking off from socialising on media. Hobbies are forgotten entirely. Neglecting what I love been around things that makes one happy, nature.

Exploring my backyard

It was one of the Central Queensland’s most popular holiday destination island. Few years ago Company from Sydney bought a islands resort, said to have a masterplan approved to turn it into a $6 million development approved with golf course, shops accommodation, casino and marina. That didn’t happen but there is still one other motel at the other end called Hideaway for bookings and holidays. One day trip was enough for me on a 30 mins boat ride.

Freedom Flyer Docked on the beach to off load and pick up the the passengers on GKI. Find out the time table at Roselyn Bay or google it. After we got off the boat my work college her mother plus her boyfriend went to their friends place where he lend us his old trail truck just to go over the other side of the island, my first shot while climbing up the mountain was the coloured mushroom
Learning how to use my Nikon D7100. Further ahead there was a lookout overlooking the main land Emu park and Yeppoon and its no wonder my friends mother said it felt like leaving Australia. We all had a good laughed about that. With Laurels orange hat I asked her if I could take a shot of her.

This part of the island was home of the goats running wild and feral. “Estimated over 600 goat on the island, they also cause enormous problems of erosion with their hooves that does the damages.

Goats we spoked and were running away.

I love this shore, a seagull with the waves as a background.

Samsung Galaxy Phone Photography, when I first started. It was one of my favourite shots with the very first bloom.

Happy New Year!

Rain, won’t you come another day?.

On the last day of work, I had worked out my schedule for the Christmas break up until the 4th January, 2021. Friday- Sunday (25-27th December chillout. Monday and Tuesday, mow the lawn and do some gardening. Wednesday and Thursday clean the house, then Friday to Sunday, rest and be back on Monday for work.

Without checking my local weather Forecast, I was so certain, I will finish my gardening on Tuesday. Waking up early on Tuesday morning, I looked out the window, it was a bad news all around, raining and it didn’t stop for a whole day.

Since the weather forecast was raining through to next week, I thought, I might as well buy some seeds and try planting them in summers sub tropical Climate weather and just pray that they will grow😊. My main fear was for the tinny seeds and that they will be washed away.

Some of the Flower seeds I soared

I also feared that they will never grow. Now, who plants flowers in Summers heat?. Lot of you are probably shaking your heads now. The way that I see it is that you will never know unless you try it☺️. So all I got to do now is wait and see if they will grow. Cheers for now, I hope that I can see you all next time with my backyard 🪴 results.

What is bloging like for me2

Tried the camera adjusting the iso to the right setting the focus or something else and just could not compare the simple hand device to the camera. Perhaps its just the simplicity of it that attracts me to the photography. There is nothing worse then having to rush and getting to setup in hurry if you want to use your camera asap. The fastest and simplest way is what you have and its very convenient when you need it and the it is the best way, you got to love that.

iPhone 12 Promax

Been using iPhone for couple of years now and I must admit that it grows on one. The camera is so powerful with the photos so clear and that is what I love about The promax 12. Used it more these days then the other cameras I have picking up dust😂. I suppose these past 2 years had been very hard for most of us because of the covid, staying in bubbles. Just can’t help but wonder when we are going to see nomalcy and what will be like in our future covid free world or will it ever be over??.

What can I blog about?.

Not so sure, so where do I begin?.

I know that I am not an experienced blogger like everyone else who has nice looking blog sites with lots of nice and fancy contents.  I was just looking for something to do as a hobby and came across this website.  One of the things that interest me more is taking photos, I am not talking about the most expensive camera and lenses, just what I had, my Smart Phone.    Version 3 which I use for everyday use.   Here is an example below the latest model.

When I had my first contract phone, I thought, wow!, I actually have a very cool phone. The phone only had limited space at that time and that I didn’t know what they meant by that. During my photo shots, sometimes I would run out of space and I would wonder why, smiling as I recall.   As the years went by, new phones and devices also evolved but this time very smart and sophisticated bigger than ever. When you actually know what devices you actually wanted to have, I have no idea which one is right for me.  You see, I have always relied on others to decide for me, finally, I thought enough was enough, stand up for myself and learn to do things on my own.

Samsung Galaxy 7 was out, and I actually thought 64 GB was for me. So one question was that, what am I going to do with all the photos I have?. I made up my mind to start blogging about them and so here I am pretending that I am writer, who am I kidding, but I gotta try to do this for myself. As I took more photos, suddenly it wasn’t good enough anymore, it was now time to upgrade for the bigger and better brand.

Upgraded To Apple iPhone

Most of these phones came with lots apps, some, we are familiar about and others we just don’t know what to do with them. Wouldn’t it be nice if someone just had the time to explore all the apps and their features and blog about them?. I know for sure that a lot of people had know idea what all these apps are and what they actually do. Maybe if we all had the time we can just sit down and go through everyone of them, but not today, thank you.
