Small Snapshots: Sun Flare

Holy Hell. The gallery opens tomorrow. TOMORROW. The GALLERY opens TOMORROW. The gallery OPENS tomorrow.


You have no idea how insane that is. Anyway, with all the stress and all the preview events and the last minute changes and the blah blah blah-bitty blah, I haven't had a change to see the sun, let alone take photos of it. Regardless, it's time for another edition of Small Snapshots!

The theme this week is sun flare. Thankfully, I had this in the archives:

I took this photo of the guard tower at Port Arthur in February last year. The sun flare was completely unintentional - I'd only had my SLR for a couple of weeks and had pretty much no idea what I was doing! - but looking at it now, I really like it!

Next week's theme is macro, and was suggested by yours truly. I have high hopes for actually being able to take some new photos, as next week should be (please God, let it be) a bazillion times less busy than this week!! Plus, I love love LOVE macro shots. So I'm excited to see what everyone comes up with :)

Want to join in? Head over to Kissed a Frog and link up!

  1. Kirsti, that is ABSURDLY PRETTY, even if it is a small picture. I want to see more of Port Arthur, haha.

  2. Followed Carissa's link on her Small Snapshot post - really like yours, too! The unintentional Flares are sometimes the best ones ;-)
    Good Luck on your Gallery opening - is it yours? It sounds exciting!


  3. @Nikki - it really is ridiculously pretty there. Which is bizarre, given that it was a place of such suffering for so many people! (it was a convict punishment station)

    @Bibi - thanks! I've been working on redeveloping a permanent gallery at a museum for the past two years, and we finally open tonight. It's been a long time coming, so it's very exciting!

  4. Great shot! What a unique way to show the architecture of a building!! I love it!

  5. That's a fabulous photo! Thanks so much for sharing! I really enjoyed all of the sunflare photos from everyone's archives!


Leave me a comment and I'll love you forever (except for spambots...)
