But wait theres more

Long time, no photos. Can't say I haven't been anywhere interesting, I have. I just forget my camera :(

Here, I'll make up for it.

Holiday Photos

I have been away. So while there has been a lack of photos there will be more now. I went to Hyams Beach down south right near Jervis Bay where they have the whitest sand i Australia. I have a lot of photos that I am very proud of. There is a lot of the beach but they're not all the same. Anyone who needed beach photos can use these so long as they credit the photo to the blog. Ta.

 Undisturbed sand...until I came and stepped on it that is

My darling dog (leo) on the beach. He doesn't want to get his little paws wet, an absolute inside dog.

This is 100% real. That's what the sand looked like on a nice morning when there wasn't a certain puppy trampling all over it.

The rock pool at low tide. It's amazing how much it filled up at high tide.

Foot prints from yours truly

That water was about -5 degrees. Don't let the appealing look of the water lure you in as it did to me. This is south coast of NSW in the middle of winter people. Do not be fooled.

The zoom was so close on the ant you can see the individual grains of sand. I love this one and am very proud of it. We had to fish that poor little ant out of the water a couple of times before we took the photo.

Taken standing in the -5 degree water. Very chilly but totally worth the photo.

My good friend Elly who was on holiday with me took this without me knowing at the time. There are others but this is the only one I could find without me resembling a chicken.

A wave right before it broke on the shore. It's pretty amazing.

The rock pool at high tide. The water looked so clear and inviting. Brrr. Oh how wrong we were.

Australia's winter sun.

Waves drawing the water out of the rock pool. And we were having such fun.

Sunbathing. Not that the sun was that warm. But still. It was nice to dry out on a rock.

One of the less pleasant days at the beach. Oh hey there's a freight ship! How did that get in there?

The beach was absolutely amazing at night. There was a full moon. Photographer's heaven!!!


Lovely lake in a national park 15 mins drive from Hyams beach.

The water was oh-so still. Be warned. There are red belly black snakes in that water grass.

Ah! Snake! Sorry my bad. It's a log. Silly me.

Very, very still until my cousins decided to throw rocks into the lake. Gee thanks for that.

Squiggly gums or is it scribbly gums. Whatever. The amount of squiggles on these two trees was absolutely insane. So I took a photo.

That's all for now.


Oh by the way. Click on them. They'll go much bigger.

(Untitled) I need a post with Untitled as a title.

I'll happily do commissions and take suggestions if you need a photo for something. I can't do everything but I can do my best so if you want a particular photo of something then I'll try to do it.

Claudia Random thought: Thanks for all the fish!

ok guys I need my Doctor Who moment here. I'm all over emotional and crap from T.O.M. and I'm watching (and listening) all the sad moment and sobbing all of my fluids into a tissue. Uncool I know but I want David Tennant back! It's not fair that he had to go and regenerate because he never said 'I love you' to Rose and there was so much unfinished business it was absolutely tragic and I have to go before I cry on my keyboard.

Sorry guys I just had to let that out. It gets worse with time.

xoxo Claudia

ILY Come back!!!!


Ok. I'm getting this blog on Facebook. Woo! Not like anyone will see.


I'm feeling all sentimental and other kinds of crap along with bored. And there's nothing like boredom as we all know so I'm going to post on Facebook and Blogger like my life depends on it. Okie dokie. Cool.


See none of that makes sense. Proof I'm crazy and have been sitting in front of the heater too long. Besides what does this have to do with photography anyway? Ok fine I'll post a photo. You people happy now?

Geez I know it's not a photo but it's a picture.

Stills from a Film

So I have to make an appropriation of Hitchcock for my English assignment. Joy. But we got some really good film and a couple of great stills. Like:

I'm supposed to be dead. Lovely. 
There's an orange filter, the colour orange was a bad omen.

Plain Fun...Wait there's no such thing as plain when it comes to fun

Sure it's not proper photography nor is it mine but it's good fun. I want a email of complaint if you don't laugh

Photoshopped by moi. I am 'Quinn' by best friend is 'Rachel'. Some people take a while to notice that it's me not Quinn. Crazy people.

Post Failure

Sorry. I haven't had much time to post. But don't worry. I've been taking lots of photos (I never stop). Capturing the world is harder than it looks especially if it doesn't want it's photo taken. I guess Mother Nature is camera shy, who knew? But she has the best to offer. So I took as many photos of the autumn as I could before all the leaves fell off for winter :( I have I couple of photos from the summer but people get camera shy too :O. Me included. I mean there are those people who will pose until they physically can't anymore and then there are people who can't pose to save their life if another person is in the room. But taking photos when someone doesn't expect it is more beautiful than any photo that has been posed for. It's authentic and original. That's why all the photos I have of my sister are nice because even though she's grumpy she's genuinely grumpy and it's not posed. Same for the ones where she's laughing. She might look like a crazy person (don't we all?) but she's properly laughing. I'm pretty sure that you'd look more strange if you tried to control your face while you laugh anyways. And nobody's hiding anything when they laugh. Same with when you're vomiting (you're hiding absolutely nothing). People can't control themselves in those types of situations so they're themselves and that's when you get snap happy. Now I am going to bombard you with photos (sorry) until you never want to come here again but they're all photos that mean something and I can give you the story behind each one.

Cousins on the trampoline. They had no idea the photo was being taken. There's a blue colour filter
My sister did NOT want her photo taken. She made it very clear when I told her I was putting it up that her opinion must be heard.

Now I would've had a wonderful photo of the beach but no. This couple had to decide to step in frame and be all lovey dovey. Blegh. Good thing I didn't take the photo a few seconds later when they kissed. That just would've made the shot totally useless.

It was a rainy day and I was still in my pyjamas at noon (as you do on a saturday). In Sydney we've been having really wet weather so I thought 'I'll put my boots on (bear in mind the pyjamas) and go out and take some photos of the rain'. It turned out really well. I was just as wet as the leaf.

Waking up at 6:30 on a school day does have it's advantages. 

So long as your camera is conveniently on the dining table.

How to tell you're blond, if this is your hair on the fluro yellow filter.

Boredom in drama class + camera = this photo

Don't know what I was thinking when I took this one. It might have been 'oh what a lovely cloud'.
