The weather here is beautiful autumn temperatures around 25 deg, John and I headed up in the hills to spend some time getting to know our camera's. Stopping at Mundaring to pick up a chicken roll, pastry and coffees we continued to Lake Leshenaultia 10 minutes further on. We sat and had our coffee and pastry looking out over the lake, taking practice shots, trying this and that. Then we walked around the lake which is a 3km lovely walk with the natural bush on one side and the lake on the other, stopping frequently to try different angles and light. I managed to get a few really nice ones and of course deleted just as many. We won't know what Johns turn out like until we get the film developed, it will be interesting to compare. I wanted to use the 36 film up as I have bought 2 better quality films,one in colour and one black and white to take with me to New Norcia in a few weeks time.
A study of the birdlife around the lake. Sharon this was where we were when you sent text re Bill, hope he is recovering!

This photo I took of Joanne a few years back I particularly like, I like the naturalness of it, she doesn't appear self conscious, relaxed a the natural lighting reflects highlighting her skin tones. My family are not comfortable with having their photo's taken, I think maybe if you can get them to relax it is better. I know the background is not the best but it doesn't matter its a good photo of Jo and just how she looks. I think maybe when professional photographers take portrait photo's they do things to relax and distract the subject. What do you think.

the chaos spills off my workspace in my studio onto my kitchen table, and sometimes depending on what I am doing, it can spill onto a trestle in the garage when John's car is not there.
