Canon 700d


Recently Miss 18 won a fashion design competition for young designers and a Canon EOS 700d was part of her prize package which she kindly gifted to me. Up till now I've only used Nikon camera gear. I'm happy to report that the 700d is a great camera. It's very similar to the Nikon D5200 -  I'm impressed by the shallow depth of field aspect on the Canon. Here's some random unedited shots from our most recent trip to our bach in Kennedy Bay...

retrovision style

our Retrovision store is buzzing along with a lot of great retro things finding new homes. The bedsides are upcycled repurposed units from our workshop. Whereas the all original retro sofa was a find that deserved a second life. I love taking photos of retro furniture. The gleam of the wood features and the textures and colours interest me a lot.

more orange

more photos from the orange colour study that I did last month. With major AMETI road works taking place in Panmure, there is an abundance of the colour orange everywhere - street signs, road cones, plastic mesh etc.

start skipping

This photo was taken at Miss 7s school where she participated in the skip off. Here she is waiting  anxiously for the buzzer to go off so that she can start skipping.

more retro chairs


 we have some very interesting chairs coming into Retrovision at the moment. The Storkline chairs are perfect for an outdoor setting (they easily fold up for transportation) or use when extra guests turn up. The armchairs below are classic 1960s cool with scissor styled armrests.

take a seat


this retro chair is becoming a favourite of mine for taking impromptu portraits. First up is my beloved Mr B who insisted that a sheepskin be put over the back of the chair before he took a seat.
