Life imitates art.

Location: Phillip Island, Victoria

Gear: Canon 600D plus Canon L Series 24 – 105ml lens.

Observation: About a year ago I visited Phillip Island for an explore. An island south-east of Melbourne, Australia and popular for it’s amazing beaches and great surf.

I loved what I found but I didn’t have my SLR camera with me on that first trip. I only had my smartphone. I promised myself that I would return with some more serious photographic kit in tow. However at about a four hour drive round trip it hasn’t been something that I have had the time to repeat. Until this week!

Whilst I was waiting for the sunset colours to deepen a little I thought that I might use my phone to capture the scene and set up. Ironic really as the whole point in returning was because I didn’t have my ‘grown up’ camera last time. It was nice to have both with me this time and I will do a post shortly of the images I captured with my Canon SLR.

So I present to thee my submission in this week’s Daily Post weekly photo challenge.

Clumsily scribed as me-taking-a-photo-of-me-taking-a-photo or much more eloquently expressed as life imitating art – the photo challenge theme for this week.

I'm passionate about travelling, music, photography, blogging, 'Social Anthropology' (the posh term for people-watching) and creating content. I travel to learn and observe to understand. My dream day would look something like this.... A bottle of red (or two), fresh baguette (or two) & wedge of Camembert (or two), a balmy Paris September eve spent people-watching in fine company on the banks of the Canal St Martin.
