Welcome to the Photo Morsels photo blog.

I’m an amateur photographer residing in South Australia.  Via this blog, I’ll share some of the images I’ve captured, and include a little of the stories associated with them.

The Photo part of the title is no doubt clear, but Morsels?

Well, a morsel can be:

  • A tasty delicacy; a tidbit.
  • A small amount; a piece.
  • One that is delightful and extremely pleasing.

I’ll leave it to your judgement as to whether Photo Morsels satisfies these definitions.  If it does, leave a comment at the bottom of any of the posts and encourage me to keep working away!

As of March 2014, Photo Morsels is one year old. I invite you to spend a few minutes exploring the forty or so articles now posted. Bookmark this page or subscribe at the bottom of this page for automatic notification of new posts, and share with me the development of Photo Morsels.

Campbell Storehouses, The Rocks, SydneyAfter something of a brief hiatus, Photo Morsels returns with ‘An Evening in the Rocks’, a walk around the historic Rocks precinct of Sydney and concluding with some night images of the Sydney Harbour Bridge from a vantage point not used very often for Sydney night photography.

Fun with a fisheyeA few weeks back I succumbed to a couple of tempting listings on eBay. One of my purchases was a rather unusual lens – a 10-17mm fisheye zoom. This Fun with a Fisheye post records my first day’s play with it.

A warm day in AdelaideToday, 14th January, Adelaide experienced its 4th hottest day on record, bumping into 5th place a 45ºC day recorded just one year ago in January 2013. I was down the beach that evening a year ago, and thought today would be an appropriate time to share some images taken that night.
