Yay, it's time for another edition of Small Snapshots!
The theme this week is movement. Given that I completely forgot to take pictures at the weekend like I'd intended, I was originally planning on just digging into the archives again. But then Carissa reminded everyone in her post that Small Snapshots is about taking NEW photos. Suitably guilt tripped, I grabbed my camera when I got home from work and took a bunch of shots. They're far from perfect because it was freezing cold outside and I was hungry, but considering I haven't done much night photography before, I think they turned out pretty well!
(Also? Thank God I remembered to bring my trusty tripod home from work. It gave me the chance to play around with long exposures!)
The clouds moving (ha - see what I did there?!) in front of the full moon:
Here we have an attempt at photographing the traffic going past on my street. I probably could have done a much better job if I'd gone and stood on the street corner rather than in the garden. But I felt enough like a Creepy McCreeperson already without standing on a street corner with my camera and tripod! Sure, it's not exactly the most scenic view. But I kind of like it all the same:
Next up, we have me playing with birthday candles. Cos I'm cool like that...
And finally, just for something different, I feel the need to include the one from the archives that I was originally planning on using. I took this back in April when I went to see the Hockeyroos play Argentina over the road from my apartment:
If you click through to the photo, you can see the water splashing up off the pitch (it's waterbased astro-turf) where the stick's connected with the ball.
Clearly, my night photography needs a lot of work. And for me to not worry so much about being a Creepy McCreeperson!
