Ricoh Mono – One of 8ight

Out and about with the Ricoh GX200.
This image was taken early morning on the esplanade in Cairns.
As the sun rose over the ocean signaling a new day, the light was so bright. In those conditions the LCD screen and viewfinder were virtually useless.
I should have packed the DSLR!

This image converted in Lightroom 2 using Silver Efex Pro.

Adobe Lightroom Presets – Two of 8ight

So another 8ight days begin and this week I will be showing eight images that I have tweaked using ‘Presets’  in Adobe Lightroom.

Many wonderful presets are available free online if you know where to look or you can just make up your own.

Today’s image is of an old Railway house in Mount Surprise, Far North Queensland.

On Holiday – Six of 8ight

Todays picture is another from our recent “Get away from it all” holiday in Port Douglas. Although as some of you may know from reading this blog and the stories on my main website POMGONEWALKABOUT we already live far far away from it all.

So anyway the holiday was a chance to see what we were missing. Nice scenery? We have it here. Restaurants and pubs? Definitely.
Port Douglas is the place to relax over a decent cold beer and good food. Except that is I always want to be somewhere else.

Anyway nestled by the foreshore in between the palms is a quaint little wooden church called “St. Mary’s by the Sea” It wouldn’t look out of place on the set of that old TV show  “The Little House on the Prairie”

Some romantic couples are so overjoyed and overcome at eyeing this quaint little church for the first time that they immediately return to their hotel room and order room service for the rest of the week.

Amidst the flows and glows they vow to return next year to get married, much to the dismay of the future brides father who will have to foot the bill. What the happy couple do not realise is that it will all eventually end in tears and divorce. Ultimately any fond memories they may have of their first holiday spent in Port Douglas will be completely destroyed .

“You cynical bastard! Ooh there isn’t a romantic bone left in your body!”

Now where have I heard that before?

But for those who are still prepared to give it a go TRY HERE Go for your life and prepare the wedding of your dreams.
