Big Ferris Wheel…

Ok, BIG disappointment – The Big Wheel: also closed for maintenance!!! 😦 I was really looking forward to getting up a little off the ground to get a few shots to practise my tilt-shift processing with… Straight out of luck!! 😦

Nevertheless, I took a few shots of the wheel itself!! – – – from a grounded position – – – 😉

I’m not a huge fan of the floating soccer balls – I prefer the traditional balloons… This was probably done for the world cup back in 2010 (or was it always this way??) … 🙂 **

Birmingham, UK – Airport

Last night we had no electricity – 😦 !!! It was horrible… do you realise that everything that you keep yourself busy with in the evening involves electricity?? – We could not make dinner, could not heat the house (it was freaken freezing!!!!!), could not drink coffee, could not do our usual lazing in front of the tele & blogging etc… Did I mention that we were the only house on the block without electricity?? Yes, we did pay the bill 😉 …

This morning when we woke up – still no electricity… It totally sucked!!! 😦 During the day they fixed it, but they could give us no explanation to what happened or why!!! Specialists?? Really??

Anyway – I’m ranting… & all I really want to do is share my travel lane memory for the week!!! 😀

This was the glimpse of Birmingham that we got way back in 2005!!! It was a VERY cold day, but we were all excited for the adventure that lay ahead!! (for those of you who are new here, we worked on a turkey farm that holiday… hmmmm… where did your Christmas turkey come from that year??) 🙂

– – – Tilt-shift update – – – I have about five more photos in this “self-improving” project!!! Will share them with you soon!!! (I have a few more ideas for photos that I want to try and get before I start revealing my results!!) 🙂 Are you busy with your tilt-shift?? Share them with me on my facebook page!!! Would love to see your results!! 🙂 **

An update post…

Update post?? What is that anyway?? Well… let me tell you:

First off – I have created a Facebook Page!! I know, what have I got to offer?? Not much – yet… 😉 But I plan on having some fun projects on there – cool articles (being that about travel, photography or whatever…) This page links to my blog – – – It is not a business, just a fun place to hang out!! So, follow the link on my homepage or click here to join in!! I am hoping to build a community with similar interests & in turn maybe also get/make the time to do more photography (&develop this skill!!!) – hopefully you can learn with me by joining in my ‘Photography To Do’s’… 😀

Tilt-Shift Photography – My first Facebook Page Challenge/Project +
a surprise new watermark!!!

As you can see – I have already posed myself a new photography challenge to develop a new skill!!! Tilt-shift photography – I am taking a normal photo and changing it to make it look like a miniature model!!! (You might recognise this photo from my Edmonton posts!! 😉 ) If you want, join me on my page & we’ll share, grow & develop our passion!! 🙂

Secondly – I have a new watermark!! As you have probably realized, I have not used my previous one for almost 6 months – simply because I was not crazy about it!! 😦 But I made a point of it today to make one that I am at least a little excited about!! & voila!! So, what do you think?? 🙂

Thirdly – along the same lines… I have joined NickExposed in a collaboration with Seeing Spots Photo with their Long Exposure Project!! The gallery was released today – go and have a peek!!! They are going to release their third collaboration theme soon… so sign-up to join in – It’s free & fun!!! 😀

Fourthly – It is C.R.A.Z.Y cold here this weekend!!!! & I mean really cold!!! (although not minus temperatures, I find that I’m colder here than I was in Canada with the minusses…) Why?? Because here in South Africa we are not equipped for the cold – if it is cold outside, it is cold inside as well – which is awful!!! I love the winter for the heaters and the blankets etc…. so loving this weekend!!! 🙂

That’s it for my update post!!! Hope you are enjoying your weekend!!! 😀 **
