Sunday Selections #7

I am having heaps of fun hosting this meme and would like to take this chance to thank everyone for joining in as well.

For those of you who are new to blogging, a meme like this is a great way to find bloggers with similar interests. When I first started blogging in 2007,  I had a hard time finding bloggers that I could connect with until I discovered a couple of photography memes. Wordless Wednesday and Weekly Winners were the two that I did the most regularly and I made a lot of new friends and I also learned heaps about photography.

Joining in with other photographers, I learned about depth of field and shutter speed and though I understand the basic principles of photography I am still a point and shoot photographer. I see something I like and just point the camera at it snapitty snap snap without much thought.

The most important thing I found about doing the photography memes was that they gave me the confidence to actually believe that my photos were any good.  So without further waffling on from me here are this weeks Sunday Selections.

This was the moon last night. I didn’t mess about with tripods or anything as I am far too lazy impatient for that. I just went outside and took some photos as the moon was rising. When I moved around I could capture the moon through the trees and the last photograph is my favourite.

Anyone can join in with this Photo Meme, “Sunday Selections” but I do ask that you only add your link if you are joining in with Sunday Selections.  Also be careful when you are adding your URL as the Mr Linky will remember your old URL and we will click onto an old post.

Here is the weekly blurb.

I take a lot of photos and most of them are just sitting around in folders on my desktop not doing anything. I thought that a dedicated post once a week would be a good way to share some of these photos that  otherwise wouldn’t be seen by anyone other than me.

I am also remarkably absent minded and I put photos into folders and think  that I will publish them later on and then then I never do.

So I  have started a photo meme that anyone can join in and play as well. The rules are so simple as to be virtually non existent.

Just add your name and URL to the Mr Linky.

Publish your photos on your blog using the “Sunday Selection” title.

Link back here to me.

Easy Peasy.

    Those moon-shots are gorgeous! They truly are. That last one is my favourite too. (note to self: must go out and photograph the full moon one day, when it’s not freezing)

    Is it just me or is your Mr Linky not up? Anyway, my Sunday Selections post is!

  • carolina February 20, 2011, 7:08 am

    Correction: your Mr Linky is up. It was just me 😉

  • carolina February 20, 2011, 7:10 am

    Although, I’ve tried twice to add my link, but I don’t think it worked. Will come back later and try again 😉

  • carolina February 20, 2011, 7:13 am

    Oh GAWD!!!! Sorry, me again, hehe (note to self: must not drink wine and try to blog at the same time). It worked. I will not return and try again then 😉

    I always love your moon photos Kim. Where I am the rising moon is hidden by the buidings of the area, so by the time I see it, it’s way up high and tiny, so a photo of it is just a white dot in a sea of black.
    My selection is up, I’ve chosen rainbows this week.

  • sleepydwarf February 20, 2011, 8:12 am

    I love moon photos too.
    Here are my fence posts (finally!)

    The moon looks amazing 😀

  • tiff February 20, 2011, 10:27 am

    I love moon photos. It is one of the things I find really difficult to do myself.

  • gaby@727m2 February 20, 2011, 10:30 am

    I LOVE these moon images, especially the last one. I’ve never taken moon images but must give it a go one moonlit night.

  • starfish February 20, 2011, 10:33 am

    That last photo is amazing…. I love it!

  • Kellie February 20, 2011, 10:45 am

    The last one is stunning. Just love it! Well done. If it wasn’t so cold in Tassie, I’d try and do something similar!! 🙂

  • Toni February 20, 2011, 10:46 am

    Oh, Kim, your photos made me gasp! they’re so beautiful. My favourite is number 3.

    and wouldn’t they make the coolest ceramics?

  • Marylin February 20, 2011, 10:51 am

    They are gorgeous, I ADORE the last shot. 🙂 x

  • Megan February 20, 2011, 11:18 am

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE moon photos. And yours are absolutely beautiful.

  • plumtree February 20, 2011, 2:14 pm

    Snap to Toni…I was wondering how you could work them out in ceramics. I love the last one too.

  • Happy Elf Mom February 20, 2011, 2:42 pm

    Oh, I just blogged my kid’s Lego ship to because I wanted to play, too. 🙂 Some of your moon pics and other pics I’ve seen in the past of the countryside… the colours are something untameable, yk?

  • Zoey @ Good Goog February 20, 2011, 3:40 pm

    I heart me some moody moon photos!

  • Wanderlust February 20, 2011, 5:02 pm

    I like the last one too. She looks like she has a face peeking through the trees.

  • Jebaru February 20, 2011, 5:41 pm

    The moon is mind blowing. I saw it on the horizon last night, looking humungous. When it looms so large and orange, I feel as if I’m living on a strange planet looking at an alien sky.

  • Megan @ Writing Out Loud February 20, 2011, 6:11 pm

    Wow! Beautiful shots.

  • kebeni February 20, 2011, 6:37 pm

    Lunar was absolutely stunning last night

  • Francesca February 20, 2011, 8:01 pm

    I love the way the moon has become a canvas, beautiful! Sorry for joining late today!

  • sleepydwarf February 20, 2011, 9:10 pm

    I just noticed, the last one really looks like the man in the moon.! About half way up, there are two eyes with big eyebrows and then he has a pointy nose, but you can’t see his mouth. That is such a great shot.

  • KK February 20, 2011, 11:28 pm

    WOWSA!!! Kim those shots are sooo beautiful!
    !Awesome to the hilt!
    Thanks again for the wonderful fun and great Idea of susing our file folders…though…now I am making it a plan for the moon to be my destination for capture!

  • Watershedd February 20, 2011, 11:36 pm

    Lovely. REally, love the first one, but the last is great too.

    Can’t put any up myself tonight. Too unsettled. There’s apost or poem dwelling down deep. Hm.

  • Cheryl Ann February 21, 2011, 12:21 am

    Lovely photos! I want to learn how to take night shots…maybe this will get me out to do it after the rain ends! I LOVE the idea of going back through our folders. i found these this morning from last December! Thanks!

  • Jay February 21, 2011, 9:07 am

    I love your moon shots! Soooo pretty! And they’re pretty darned good pictures, too. Tripod?

  • Adam February 21, 2011, 9:19 am

    These are beautiful Kim! The last two photographs are the best shots I have seen of the moon… Makes me want to howl!

  • Tanya February 22, 2011, 5:16 pm

    I love the last one too 🙂
