Same old, same old

A look back on the last 12 months

It really is feeling that way right now. We are, once again, in lockdown. No surprise really and I think I’m feeling a lot better about it than I did the last one. Mainly, I suspect because we have all been waiting for it.

Lockdown again

Sydney went into lockdown a few weeks again and we have been waiting for some dickhead who thinks the restrictions don’t apply to them and come to Victoria.

And it did.

Two removalists from Sydney came here, both were infected with the Delta variant of Covid, they didn’t wear masks, and well, look at us now.

It was initially for 5 days, which was supposed to end tonight, but today they are going to announce an extension of it apparently.

So what to do in lockdown?  Good question. I have to work on my next video so I have decided that this week’s video is going to be about photography in lockdown. I have a few ideas. You will have to wait for the video to see what I do.

We could have a look at some things I did last year in lockdown.


I’m thinking of starting a Patreon page to help people learn about image processing.

There are a few people doing Patreon pages and I started following and paying for a couple to see what they were all about. I am going to charge for the page, but not much.

I thought $5 a month for people. I will do videos on processing, and do the odd live video here and there where people can ask me questions.

So you can an idea about how I did this image.

This is an image I completely changed. I added a new reflection to the windows because I like the front of the shops, but not the reflection that was already there.

Then there is this one.

Laying Eggs in a Nest

Those eggs weren’t real and I had to add them.

These are kind of more advanced things, but we will start off slowly and go from there.

So this is to let you know what I’m going to be doing. I will set it up soon and those that want to learn more can do so there.

Well, that is it for me now. I’m off to start getting ready to take my photos. Work what I’m going to take and then do it, while filming it all as well. It should be an interesting day. I hope things are good where you are.

  1. Count me in on your Patreon page, Leanne. I doubt you are out in today’s very heavy and cold rain. I’m cosying up in front of the fireplace.

    1. That is great to hear Don, I’m hoping to get it up and going in the next couple of weeks. No, I haven’t been going out at all, just hanging around the house. Thank you Don.

  2. Lovely photos, Leanne, I just can’t understand why people are so careless, thoughtless and have an apparent disregard and disrespect for the lives of other people. Makes me angry. Enjoy taking photos!
