Topless portraits with fruits, and other images

As previously mentioned, David and I went on a tour of the Great Ocean Road. We’ll not go into the nitty-gritty details of the trip. Instead I’ll simply highlight a few notable events.


Somewhere along the way was a scenic spot with rolling hills dusted with a delicate blanket of mist. Of course I stopped. After a few lacklustre photographs that did not manage to capture the serene magnificence of the landscape, David wanted a few portraits.

Of course he doesn’t use the pretentious term “portrait”, but he wanted a photo anyway. For posing purposes, he took off his t-shirt. A momentary flash of inspiration hit me, and I rummaged around the back seat of the car for a banana.

Privacy concerns has reared its ugly head.

I still don't know if it's funny or bad.

After that, he said since I had so much fun doing the banana shots, it was now his turn. Not contend with doing more bananas, I dug around the mess that the back seat was, and found a pair of C-cup oranges.


Passing a field of grazing monochromatic cows, I stopped for some bovine portraits. Driving off, I ran over a plastic reflector post for fun. We found it extremely amusing, and resolved to do it at the next suitable one.


And finally, some cam-whoring on my part. This was done in a dimly lit public toilet, with a polished sheet of stainless steel for a mirror, and some fluorescent tubes for illumination.

The camera was held with both hands at waist level and pointed at the mirror. ISO was set to 400, but shutter speed was still a slow 1/4s despite a large aperture of F/2.8. Flash could not be used or it’ll blind the camera.

The dodgy angle of the shot makes the side kick look higher than it already actually is.
