This week’s challenge is to take a shot of my favourite colour – purple. Unfortunately we have very few photos containing purple. My brother has absolutely no photos of anything purple, so we have had to resort to a photo of mine. Unlike my self-taught brother I have taken two short courses in photography. One as part of my Journalism Diploma, back in the days when photography required a darkroom and developing liquids in order to be able to see what you had snapped and another at TAFE a six-week evening course designed to get you proficient at using your Digital-SLR. It is a sad fact that after both of these course I still suck at taking photographs. This one was taken as part of the TAFE course and the instructor pounced on it as a “very nice” photo desperately trying to give some hope after a run of blurry, out of focus, out-of-proportion images that I had been producing.
