Photo theme - holes

Rusted Metal Tasmania - square crop Following the positive reception of one of my shots on the site’s Facebook page, I was inspired to continue the theme I started there with a selection of shots on the subject of holes.

By holes, I don’t mean holes in the ground, although I do have some shots like that, instead I mean holes that you can peer through to create an interesting photographic effect.

Holes can be found all over the place, from gaps in shrubbery, to open window frames, to corroded metal. These photos are all taken through holes of some sort, for your delectation and delight. Let me know what you think in the comments box at the end!

Rusted Metal Fraser Island Shipwreck

And finally, the photo I posted to the Facebook Page – peering through the decaying wreck of a ship on Fraser Island, Queensland.

I often get asked what gear I use for my photos. Check out my full Photography Gear post to find out!

  1. Wow, really love these photos and it's great theme as well!

  2. Very beautiful photos especially the first one you got the background to be blur.

  3. Thanks Sarah, the first one was my favourite too. I found a huge collection of rusting metal at the end of a beach in Tasmania and spent ages wandering around taking shots. I love the colours in rusting metal :)

  4. Thanks guys, pleased you like them :)
