Photography Field Trip - May, 2009

The Boyle - a outdoor education centre situated
at the beginning of the St James Walkway
(near the Lewis Pass).
The weather was awful; lots of wind & rain,
but this did not stop us from photographing
the fungi on the forest floor.
Fungi photography is a first for me,
Alice kindly lent me her Macro lense
which opened up a whole new world -
most of the fungi are just so tiny
maybe a inch high, all have fancy
names that I am yet to learn
......take a look......

Alice celebated her birthday on the is her colour don't you think??

Two weeks ago Alice, Pat, Pam & myself
attended a course at the University.
Mary-Jo Bedford was tutoring on the will see that it creates a
dreamy, fuzzy or sometimes an infocus image,
just by changing the settings within the
lense - the choice is up to the photographer.
I just loved the creativity of the lense
and have since bought one!!!.....Wicked!

...and some black & white images

Rubik Cube Party - May, 2009

My crazy workmates enjoy theme parties, hence we are
dressed in the colours of the rubik cube. The idea being
you arrive at the party in all colours, and by the end of the
evening dressed in just one colour.

This photo is 'the before'one......unfortunately there
wasn't a second one taken at the end of the evening

Safety jackets were very popular!

Doug almost in yellow

The remaining photos are not my own, but show how
some of us ended up!!
