There’s beauty in dif­fer­ence

North Coast Times - - #SNAPPERTH -

TAK­ING up pho­tog­ra­phy helps peo­ple “see things dif­fer­ently”, ac­cord­ing to Danny O’Loghlen.

The But­ler res­i­dent, who runs Danny’s De­Tours, said he has dis­cov­ered many un­usual sites while look­ing for photo op­por­tu­ni­ties.

He “stum­bled upon” the his­toric lime kilns in Orches­tra Shell Re­serve, Neer­abup on one of his de­tours and said it was ideal for a range of pho­tog­ra­phy styles, from por­trait and bird to his­tory and as­tropho­tog­ra­phy.

“There’s so much to like about just this one lo­ca­tion,” he said.

“It’s great for beginners and in­ter­me­di­ates (and) five min­utes from home.

“An­other place I don’t think gets enough recog­ni­tion in a pho­tog­ra­phy sense is the na­tional park; Yanchep Na­tional Park is awe­some.”

Mr O’Loghlen said the birdlife and his­toric build­ings at the na­tional park of­fered plenty of op­por­tu­ni­ties for pic­tures, and the coast north of Min­darie Ma­rina was also great to ex­plore with a cam­era.

How­ever, he said peo­ple could start snap­ping pic­tures closer to home.

“Look around your own back­yard first; walk around your own yard, block, sub­urb,” he said.

“It’s just a mat­ter of slow­ing down. Once you take up pho­tog­ra­phy, you see things dif­fer­ently. “It’s a good cre­ative out­let.” Share pho­tos of your favourite haunts around Perth us­ing the #snapperth tag on so­cial me­dia.
