Special seconds in time.

If you've ever tried to photograph birds you'll appreciate the significance every fraction of a second can hold. I was at Dee Why Beach enjoying the early evening light and managed to capture this. 

It wasn't quite as peaceful as the image looks, once those birds take off it's a flurry of movement and over in a flash. 

This post is to remind you to get out there! Photoshop is brilliant but you need to keep it relevant to yourself and beyond necessity.

Take your camera or phone out when you're at a bus stop, or waiting for coffee or when you're out for an afternoon stroll, and take a few shots. Hone your computer skills with images that are relevant to you.
