Re-runs (from 2012)
Since there are a few new followers to my PhotoBlog, I thought you might like to see some old Black & White shots (converted from colour images) from 2012. Seems there are many lovers of Black & White photography like myself. Most of these images are already on my blog in the archives, but still remain some of my favourite images I’ve shot in the past. The conversion to Black & White came about purely as they all had good contrast and light.
It’s refreshingly cool this morning, hopefully signalling the arrival of Autumn and time to get back to Melbourne Zoo for some animal photos. 3-4 hours spent at the Zoo is one of my favourite photography excursions, but it’s been a while since I have taken any really good photos there. I think my best zoo photos were taken late 2011 & early 2012. I suspect my vision was getting a bit stale by the end of 2012 and I needed a break from Zoo subjects for a while.
……..and finally……probably the only image I have of one of the homeless people living on Melbourne’s Streets. Many of these homeless don’t like their photo being taken at all. Strange in some ways as I usually drop some money for a meal in their hats or boxes (put out in front of them for donations). Maybe they think I am a professional photographer with a nice looking camera in my hand and want to ‘make money’ out of their image.
