Duplo Fun

My Sunday Photo – Duplo Fun

My Sunday Photo for this week is titled Duplo Fun

It’s been a fairly quiet week for me photo-wise, but I did manage to capture this moment of Duplo fun. It was no great feat to capture this, Hannah and I play together with Duplo almost every day. What I often forget to do is have the camera ready to capture our creations.

My Sunday Photo – Water Fun

My Sunday Photo this week is titled Water Fun

It’s the middle of summer here in Sydney and we have had some hot days. Last Sunday, Sydney was the hottest place on earth. The suburb of Penrith recorded 47.3 degrees Celsius! Luckily, we have some pretty great ways to stay cool – air-conditioning, beaches, local pools, and the good old wading pool in the backyard. We have been taking full advantage of each one of those options, but these particular photos come from some water fun in a wading pool.

My Sunday Photo for this week is titled Rust Bucket

After a short break over the Christmas and New Year period, I’m back for My Sunday Photo in 2018. If you don’t know what I’m on about, head over to Darren’s website, Photalife, and check it out. It’s my favourite link up each week, I love looking at all the amazing photos from around the world!

A couple of days ago we went for a great walk long the Botany Bay foreshore. It was a beautiful day to be out and about, and we had a lot of fun, especially when we stumbled upon a brilliant and mostly deserted playground. The only downside to our walk was an unfortunate scooter accident, but even that wasn’t too bad (…other than the rivers of blood).

I got a little slack in 2017 and began to rely too much on our excellent Sony RX100 point-and-shoot. In 2018 I plan to make the effort to take the Nikon D5100 with me a lot more, there’s nothing more satisfying than using a DSLR – even my entry-level gear fills me with joy!

I took a stack of great photos at the playground, but I also noticed an interesting sight out in the bay.

I always find these kinds of things fascinating. Surely that was once a boat that cost someone a lot of money. How did it come to be in the state it is in, and why is it moored where it is moored? Is it sitting there just waiting to die, or does someone have grand plans of bringing it back to life?

Whatever its story, I really enjoyed photographing it. It’s times like this where having a decent zoom lens comes into play. I could tell from the shore that it was in pretty bad shape, but I couldn’t make out any of the details. It was interesting to see the graffiti and the rubbish pile on the back. As for the seagull, I only noticed that when I zoomed in to 100%. Click on the above image to see it full size.

I wonder what will become of this rust bucket.
