Went out with a friend last night to shoot a bit of astro. We went to Norah Head lighthouse on the Central Coast and I managed to get this despite battling the light from the lighthouse. Really like how it turned out.
It was nice being out under the stars again. I love the solitude and the perspective you get when you’re out shooting, particularly the moments between shots, standing there, staring up at the stars. It really makes you realise just how small a part of the universe we are. And how lucky we are to be here at all.
It was quite a cold, rainy day today but the clouds parted for just long enough for a lovely sunset and for me to take a few shots. About an hour later, it started raining again! Was perfect timing I guess.
My photo group’s home photo challenge for this week was a vintage theme. I decided I’d take the theme literally and took a few shots of some of the old film cameras in my collection, as well as editing a few photos from earlier in the week to look a bit like film.
It was a fun theme and I’m happy with how the shots turned out. It was fun going through my camera collection too. The Canon TLb was actually my grandfather’s film camera from the 1970s and it’s still in pretty good condition. The Olympus doesn’t work very well anymore unfortunately but I still use the Pentax quite regularly.
I have a few others I didn’t photograph as well, I might do those another time.
