On the streets of our town...

I quite like the yellow tones that the street light cast over this image.
Any time of night you can wander down to the high st and there will always be activity.

Through the view finder.

This shot was taken by holding my digital slr against my old 'kodak duaflex' and taking a pic through the view finder. Gives it that grainy old world look.

Bits and Pieces

Bits and pieces from a day in the life

A trip to the park 

A bike ride


And a simple door on a trip to the city

Portraits ( Harder than you may think)

It all started with a simple request " get a photo of the three kids while they're in a good mood"


 No again...
It was a little harder with Mr F the little energizer bunny he is, So i told him to jump and tried to catch him in the air.

Pure gold. 

The motion captures Mr F's personality Perfectly!
Just a small pity the flash died on this shot because its my favorite.

And Ending with a Fizzle (Almost)

I been such a terrible host!
One whole month without a post.
I missed one post, then I guess life just got in the way.

Those who don't know me as Mr Finki (no one i think) should know that it is currently market season and adding to that a full time job, 2 kids, a part time job at Finki, it all leaves me often falling asleep before 2 year old mister F.

Long story short, I was in Borders the other night and started to look at the photography books and magazines and it made me realize  that I wasn't being fair to my self or followers.
Its not like i haven't been taking photos in my absence, I just never posted any.
Well to make up for it I'm going to post as many shots as i can for the next month.

The magazine I bought focused on macro photography so i dusted off the Close up filters I have and took these Gems.

While not macro... still not bad for filters that are second hand and came with my 1960s Pentax therefore probably at least 30ish to 50ish years old.

Millennium Falcon

I love the idea of a multi player Millennium Falcon game especially if it was in such vivid colors.

Mr F with Yashica

What a terrible  host Ive been no posts in THREE days, all i can say is life happens. Ive been so busy with work kids and finki that usually when putting the kids to bed I fall asleep first. To make up for it I'll do 3 posts today.

I saw this cross in Dalesford and I wonder who Shaun was. It reminded me to enjoy every day as it came, whether it was doing something new or just hanging the clothes on the line. Thank you Shaun whoever you were.

Little Miss Rainbow

This image was taken by Little Miss aged 2 3/4.

Whats amazing is the camera was so perfect for a 2 year old to be as artistic as they liked.

a Fisher Price 35mm Perfect shot, it had a viewfinder for each eye
making it the perfect kids camera.
