  3. Interesting how we do grow and change with our blogs.

    Thanks for a bit of an intro.

    Didn’t know there was a Brooklyn in Austrailia. I’m from Brooklyn in New York! LOL. There are a few others too …

    Be well and blog on …

  4. Thanks for liking one of my posts appreciated. Hope to visit Adelaide at some time in the future as my daughter and family are now resident there at Henley Beach Enjoyed your work and look forward to your posts.

  5. Thank you for liking my post! I’m new to blogging so I’m beginning to discover other bloggers. Your photographs are amazing! I can’t wait to look through them!

    • Thank You ans My Pleasure
      Yes it takes a bit of getting use to nut I am sure you will enjoy the journey


  6. I like your pictures and when you tell us you photoshopped them a bit. I am one of those naive who believe what they see, so I like the honest admission. I do not have a problem with enhancing photos to get the color right. For instance where I live to capture snow as truly white and not some weird whitish blue, you need to adjust the camera, or do some retouching. Capturing snow in pictures is very difficult.

    • Thank You
      Yes I agree sometimes a picture is just perfect as is and sometimes it can use a little help tp being it to life

    • Thank you
      Its something we all strive for and you are right I have a very Happy Life….very Lucky

  18. I have a question Mike, if i m trying to take a shot with a normal point n shoot camera or from my mobile …. and the object of my shot is say a water fall or splash of water…. n i m looking to freeze the water and get the crystal like images of it captured … what should i adjust the shutter speed, the ISO setting …. Just wondering … so if you could help me understand I ll really appreciate it …. whenever you get the time

    • Hi Shivani, I would have the ISO at 100 unless it is very dark then maybe change to 200, the quicker the shutter speed the more likely to freeze the action, if you are looking for that smooth misty water you will need a long exposure that may be hard to do on a point and shoot.
      Hope this helps


      • Ok shall try the settings you have told me. Thanks a ton. Sweet of u for taking the time n responding so promptly…. absolutely appreciate it…. 🙂

  19. Super fantastically exciting writing! Some of its hitting quite a personal chord 🙂 Any chance I can use the words in some of my paintings???? Obviously I’ll reference when I blog 🙂
