Day 5: Solitude

I took this photograph on one of my blissful days out with my daughters.

As part of Day five’s task, we were meant to take the rule of thirds into consideration. This photo was the closest I could find to fit both the solitude theme, and the rule of thirds. I’m not sure it hits the thirds mark.

What do you think?

Lack of time has forced me to use old photos for my Day four and five’s photos, although the purpose of this exercise was to make me use my camera every day, it just doesn’t seem to be working out that easily. Things can only look up.

Day 2: Street.

I live in Australia, near the seaside town of Rosebud on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria. It’s approximately 75 km southeast of the City of Melbourne.

It comes to life every summer when the holiday makers invade to enjoy the beautiful beaches, but yesterday when this photograph was taken, it was a cold, windy, and rainy day and the streets were almost deserted.

In a cruel twist of fate, we learnt yesterday that our cruise to the Arctic region has been cancelled. The boat is undergoing engine repairs and apparently it won’t be ready in time for our trip, so the adventure has been rescheduled for the same time next year.

It was a shock and a disappointment, but on the bright side, I now have a lot more time to hone my photography skills!
