Between work, study and life, I’ve found it hard to update my posts here, and have barely had a chance to even look at my site. On the bright side I have been enjoying my studies and my work/life balance has flowed nicely, so while I’m missing in action in my blog posts, everything is still peachy for me at this point in my life.
As I mentioned, I’ve been studying hard for my Interior Design/Building Design diplomas, and while I’ve been working on my assignments, my camera gear has sat neglected in my closet (I know, it’s a sad thing to admit).
But … that doesn’t mean it’s over for me. I’ve got some things I’m working on for Frankly Speaking coming in the pipeline which shouldn’t be too far away, so I’ll update them when I’ve finalized them.
Although it sounds like I haven’t touched my camera since the last time I posted, I have been using it when I get breaks from study; my partner, his family and myself travelled to Cania Gorge, then to Byfield National Park during the June/July holidays as a short four day trip to get away from our busy lives. We managed to get to Byfield just as the water levels were low enough to allow for safe access to the park after the huge wet season we had earlier in the year. And although it was cold and overcast for most of the trip, both of these locations are worth seeing.
I’ve also been using my film camera where I can. I usually take my film camera more places than I do my digital camera, and sometimes use it even more when I do have my Sony with me. I took it with me when we went to Byfield, though the film came back blank which was extremely disappointing. I did, however take many shots back in November when I was camping with my brothers at Double Island Point, near Rainbow Beach. Here are some shots I took on a roll of Kodak Professional Ektar 100 film. I took them before I fixed the light leaks in the body of the camera, but they still turned out beautifully.
