I've got a new Blog!
Where's all the recipes??? Weeeell, I have still been eating great food, just not necessarily photographing it...! Making a really good food-photograph literally takes HOURS, by the time you fiddle with all the props and ingredients and lighting... which is a perfect pass-time for a winter's afternoon. But the serendipitous summer days more recently have drawn me out of the kitchen and onto more spontaneous subjects. I'm sure the kitchen will once again become a food-photography studio when the weather cools down and there will be more great recipes coming your way - but for now, let me share some of my other photographic adventures on my new blog: Photo-Ventura.
According to Spanish-English dictionaries,
1. Happiness, Contentment (felicidad).
2. Luck (suerte)'por ventura' = luckily
'Buena ventura' = good fortune told by gypsies and vagrants.
'Probar ventura' = to try one’s fortune, to venture at, on, or upon.
3. Contingency, casualness, happenstance, adventure.
'a la (buena) ventura' = at random; without a fixed plan.
4. Future; that which is to come.
... which is a pretty good description of my approach to photography...!
This new blog will showcase selected photos from my travels in Australia and O/S; of dance; plants; people; Life.
