Big Cities and Little 'uns
Another Bridge in Melbourne I like these cities that get all fancy with their bridges. Melbourne certainly does! Each bridge tries to out-do the next. There’s no common theme and its sort of a mish-mash of styles, to say the least. I think that not everyone likes this, but I do. I don’t mind all the variety, especially from the perspective of photography.It’s kind of the same way with the buildings and other decorative elements around downtown Melbourne. There are so many styles, most of which are one flavor of “modern” or “contemporary”. I enjoy mixing and matching different elements into compositions, but it is not easy. There is a challenging aspect to it that I don’t get in many other cities.- Trey RatcliffClick here to read the rest of this post at the Stuck in Customs blog.
I'm really enjoying the effect you get from this 24mm at f/1.4! I haven't done a lot of shooting with it yet, but if you get some separation of your subjects from the background in terms of distance, then everything falls away with a nice bokeh. Hey that kind of rhymes. This was the Leica f/1.4 lens attached to the Sony A7r body.And as for this photo? This is the Stu I mentioned yesterday with Bob, a local there in Saint Bathans where you can stop any time for a hug and a bit of homespun wisdom!- Trey RatcliffClick here to read the rest of this post at the Stuck in Customs blog.
Moeraki Boulders at Uber Sunrise These Moeraki boulders are awesome in the morning! If you are going to visit this place, I suggest you get online and check a few things:1) Check the tides. Make sure there will be low tide in the morning.2) Check the sun position and time for the year.If you get those two things planned out, then you can go and spend the night there in Moeraki. You don’t want to go through all the trouble of getting into position if the conditions are wrong.- Trey RatcliffClick here to read the rest of this post at the Stuck in Customs blog.
