Introducing a little batch of my first ever manual-mode photos (some I am proud of, some needed more time and work!).
Trying to use the correct settings to get crisp, good quality images didn’t always come easily.
If the subjects were still I tried a few times until I was happy – if they were moving (or if the shots were of me, they were taken on auto-mode … in those cases it was safer to get them at all).
Please see image captions for details of the where’s and what’s …
It was great exploring Melbourne with a fresh head and a desire to see it differently through my Canon G16. I liked the challenge of trying to take photos I was satisfied with.
By night we dined on the busy Southbank. I love Melbourne and this quick trip reminded me once again why it’s often voted the ”most liveable city in the world”.
Tasmania was so much more than I imagined. I loved it!.
In my head it was a little, barren, place filled with one-way-streets … I couldn’t have been more wrong.
It reminded me of Reading, England and also of Bath, England.
Much of Hobart (where we stayed the night) is built on the waters edge, so it’s full of all types of boats and fresh, clean air.
I will definitely book a trip back to Tassie when the weather is better (it was too cold for me at 11 degrees – I’m a Sydney girl now after all!). I look forward to doing more touristy things next time – this was just a taster.
Hope you enjoyed my little snapshot into these two great parts of Australia. Thanks for checking out this post. Here’s to a great week ahead! Next post coming Wednesday.
