Eucalyptus Trees

26/04/2017

Eucalyptus trees are my favourite because of their wonderful fragrance! Of course they also provide delicious food for the koala bear.

Eucalyptus oil has many medicinal properties, and is just a great oil to have in your house. I use a few drops with my (unfragranced) washing powder to wash my clothes and it makes them smell very fresh. A few drops on a cotton wool ball, or wipe makes your toilet smell nice and fresh as well.

How do you use eucalyptus oil or any other essential oil? Please share your tips. Thank you!

Window Shopping

This window display made my day. It’s so wonderfully soft, light and feminine. Sometimes that is just what you need.

I was there and then and then
You were there and then and then
We were there the beginning of time

I was there and then and then
You were there and then and then
We are together in time

A few more images from the Asylum/Sanctuary assignment.

Sanctuary 2
Practicing narrow (or shallow) depth of field with an aperture of F5.

Sanctuary 2
Another one where I practiced narrow (shallow) depth of field. There were low light conditions, and my focal length was 135mm and F5.6 was the maximum aperture my lens would allow.

Sanctuary 2
In this image I like the framing and the soft colours. All in all it was a very good assignment to start us off with and to allow us to practice some techniques. Photos were taken with a Canon EOS D550, with an 18-135mm lens F3.5-F5.6. The lens suited me fine, except in low light situations with a long focal length where it would not go below F5.6.
