Homeward Bound (Jan 7)

Maggie is the land that time forgot


Save for travel schedules


What fool leaves paradise...


... for civilisation?


Sundays are roaring in Townsville


Closeups of the RAAF base are easy to get


If you look more like a Japanese tourist than a terrorist


All good things must come to an end


And in Queensland, it's a quiet one

Hey nice pictures John. I can tell you've got the knack for photography by the professionalism in each composition. I especially like how your narratives for each flow from one the the next.

What sort of settings did you use for the camera?

And yes yes i've started a blog again for the umpteenth. i can here your sighs from all the way here in Perth hahaha. And sorry for the lack of original thought but i've borrowed the format of your blog's tagline for mine since i found it the most suitable.

Cheers

I played around with exposure and semi-auto modes, ISO for night shots (the ship mast and the huts at night). the skinks and the hopper are taken in digital macro. Adjusted white balance for bright daylight (often) and fluoro/tungsten lighting

to confess, I touched all these up on the computer (brightness, contrast, saturation)


a link for your blog, sir? put up some pictures of Perth, then we'll have bracketed the country between us
