What did you take a photo of on your walk today? (feat. CHUNK)


(Andrew Anderson) #602

New rule for the year… if it’s 5 floors or less in my office high rise I’ll take the stairs. 21 flights today!

It had two things going for it in that shot.

  1. I had JUST finished cleaning it for over an hour, and

  2. Cha was out and I wasn’t eating for the day, so no chance to make it messy at that point.

Although I did fry up the pork rinds a little later, and then it didn’t look quite like that :slight_smile:

We really could use a little more bench space, and drawers. Drawers are so much better than cupboards it’s ridiculous.

Yeah, very. I just slide it 50cm to the sink and tip it up :slight_smile:

They only hold 17L(?) so they’re not all that heavy even full.

I THINK mine (brand is Breville #becauseaustralia) is starting to die as the temp appears to be a bit wonky, but it’s been great. I use it for meat and the Anova for eggs, currently.

If it does die, I think I’ll just get another Anova and clip it to the side and cut a hole in the lid and keep using it where it is.

So I went for five walks out west this is one of the days.

Another day these are in reverse order.

Walked out into the garden for this one. In the first shot you can just spot the hibiscus but up close it was the size of a dinner plate!

Man, that’s crazy


(Whole Lotta Rosie The Riveter ) #612

IKR? We’ve got quite a few hibiscus plants & I’ve never seen one that big before.

Lots of photos from extended walks on recent travels. I took so many photos but picked just a few that were taken after very long walks!

These were all taken on my Pixel 3 XL which I got for Christmas. I upgraded from a Pixel 1. It has an amazing camera!

Similarish. Kinda.

Love the expression on the guys face :slight_smile:

It was still dark when I went to feed them all this morning.

He was a French dude, and was a little surprised that I bothered to ask about taking a photo or two :slight_smile:

It was in 2011, and I was on my way home from taking one of the best images I took in my photography career :slight_smile:

Do we get to see the career defining picture :crossed_fingers::grin:

That’s overstating it a touch :slight_smile:

This is Baron Wolman, who was Rolling Stone’s first photographer, and plenty more besides.

Classic Rock photo gallery at his site

He was here in Melbourne to open an exhibition of his photos, and I interviewed him for a website I was trying to get going, and he was just lovely.

I took my camera, of course, to get an image to run with the article, and just took about four or five right at the end as we we well out of time. Which was a shame, as I loved interviewing him, and he was liking it too because I’d actually done my research and so I had good questions to ask, and knew enough to branch out if he said something that tweaked my interest.

So these are just in his hotel room on St Kilda Rd, no lights, just filtered sliding door to the balcony natural light, one camera, and the best lens ever made (Canon 85/1.2mkII).

I sent him the link to the article and the photo that night, and the next day, he replied wanting to buy the image because he loved it and said was one of the best photos he’d ever had taken of him.

I already loved it, but you can see why I liked it even more then, given who it was I was I was dealing with…

Awesome story & pictures - I can see why he was so happy with them! You have a great eye for a great face :sunglasses:

EDIT - loved his stuff too. Great first photo in the line up :grin:
