Picture of the day: A room with a view :) (Tasmanian style)

I have been waiting for posting this, but it is defiantly one of the more interesting accommodations that I ever experienced around the world. I was attending a rather splendid trip to Tasmania earlier this year, and we where going around the east coast of the island, and was close the old prison colony of Port Arthur.  Then we got Our place for the upcoming days. A nice little house with ample space, but the most amazing thing was the old graveyard at the other side of the garden….. A quite haunting experience.. HAHAHA ….:)

Picture of the day: Remains of yesteryear

Tomorrow am I going to Bosnia and Herzegovina on a 10 day street and documentary photography workshop. So todays image is from my last trip that took me to Australia, and Tasmania where the ruins of the former Port Arthur prison colony was. The image is of one of the wardens , or other higher servicemen housing, and  I think it fits as a street or documentary photography type image.

Picture of the day: The eye(s) of the beholder

These two tassie (Tasmanian) devils are kind of cute , and pet looking animals, but absolutely one of the more scary animals I have ever encounted. They have definitely earned their reputation. There teeth is sharp, and there senses also. So it is safe to keep your distance. Still stunning creatures.

Picture of the day: The Decisive Moment

The old master of photojournalism Henri Cartier-Bresson talked about “The decisive moment”. And many times when I have anticipated such a moment it have never arrived. Still sometimes, you look at images in post, and you see “moments” that might give you a greater impression than when you took the shot. Todays image is from the Tasman blowhole  where you can get “very” close from the erupting water, and it nearly caught one of the other tourists of guard.

Picture of the day: The superb fairy-wren

The superb fairy-wren is Australia’s favorite bird. I was lucky enough to get a shot of it when I visited Tasmania. For those of you that are interested , the technic I used to get the shot was framegrabbing because I only had a camcorder at hand when I did got a look at the magnificent bird
