Weekly Photo Challenge-Inspiration



My contribution for this week’s challenge…



A few years ago the largest photo I had ever taken

was 10 inches by 8 inches…and that was

back in the late 1970s early 80s.

Since purchasing my Nikon DSLRs it has been my dream to make bigger photos.


After our first African Safari I created an online

A4 size book (10 x 8 inches) with

a couple of double page spreads…A3 size.


Last year I made a slightly bigger book (11 x 11, I think).

Finding myself at a bit of a loose end this year

I posted some of my pictures on a dedicated Facebook page

and on another WordPress site.

As a result I have had requests to create photos

large enough to take pride of place

on living room walls.


My Zebra is about 18 x 24 inches; and

Guitar_0005My Guitar is about 32 x 23 inches.

Whether for my own enjoyment or the enjoyment of others,

creating these photos is my inspiration

at this stage of my life.

I guess my inspiration for aiming at larger photos is a photo

which covers a Geelong, McDonald’s Restaurant wall.

I would love to have my signature on such a photo. 🙂
