Day 121 #Project365

121-365 bottle

We’ve arrived to the end of April. A third of the year 2012 has just passed and I have been taking photos every day like a maniac. There was a slight change to the way I did the project this month by including photos taken with a DSLR to what used to be a 100% iPhone photos only project. It was the best decision ever.

I’ve had my fun with my iPhone the first three months but I felt the limitation from it as well towards the end of March. From the beginning I intended for this project to “force” me take more photos so I can learn from it, so really, it shouldn’t matter what camera I use. There’s no set rules anyway. It’s my project, my rule.

The inclusion of DSLR has made taking photos so much more enjoyable. I’ve had more fun this month than before because I could experiment more, and I think that’s the whole point of this project and this made me quite happy.

Day 85 #Project365

85-365 plane's tail

Ranges of planes big and small, old and new, were parked at the airport runway and open for public to see this Sunday morning. The event was Canberra Airport Open Day.

We were allowed to go up in most of these planes, but the lines were soooo long we ended up just walking around the runway. We caught an air show where the daredevil pilot was doing crazy acrobatic stunts that made me dizzy even from watching.

It was a great time to take some photographs too, though I had to be quick if I didn’t want to have random babies or toddlers in all my frames. Parents have this tendency to plonk their young offspring on odd places, like plane wings, on the plane’s gigantic wheels, or had them sort of hanging on the air next to a cockpit because we were not allowed to go inside some of the old ones. And they just didn’t care whether you were already there on the right spot just doing some adjustment to get that perfect shot, hey no other kids on that plane and there was a free space, right?!

What I learned today: speedy snapping is the key for cleaner shots in busy surrounding. Mental note: learn how to crop small person (that is not of own flesh and blood) out from a picture ;-).

Day 68 #Project365

68-365 scale

It’s easier to shoot pretty stuff than not. The challenge is to make the image of not so pretty stuff interesting.

Today I said goodbye to my scale. Yes, for years I have been using this simple, non digital, red plastic scale. We have been together since Bangkok, which was 10 years ago. It might look ordinary but we have created wonderful things together my scale and I. All the yummy desserts, all the birthday cakes, Black Forests, tons of cupcakes and more!

It is time to say good bye. The newly bought digital(!) scale is here. It looks more like a flying saucer than anything else. It looks so clean and polished, gleaming against the kitchen light. We will see whether it can perform as well as my old one. Let’s hope it is not just another pretty face.

Back to the photo, yes this was not the sexiest thing I have in the kitchen, and I was struggling to get a perfect light to make it look slightly presentable but for a long time it was the most valuable thing I had. It looked all scratched and battered now but it has never failed to do its job. Bye old red!

    At least you’ve moved towards the new technology ;p
    I’m still stuck with something like your red scale, only it’s white 🙂ReplyCancel

      I say as long as it does the job it does not really matters whether it is from the newest type or not. My old one only had maximum of 1 kg(!) which totally didn’t do it for me. Good luck and enjoy your old white!ReplyCancel
