The Duchess of Cambridge takes a turn on the OTHER side of the lens: Kate's personal photographs from royal trip to Borneo are released (but are they any good?)

As one of the most photographed women in the world the Duchess of Cambridge is used to being around cameras, and her trip to the Far East generated thousands of images that were seen around the globe.
 
Today the Duchess of Cambridge hopes to prove that she is just as capable behind the lens as she is in front of it as photographs of her trip to Borneo have been published on her official website.
 
Kate, who is a keen photographer, took the shots on her own camera during a visit to the Danum Valley Research Station during her Diamond Jubilee tour to South East Asia and the South Pacific with the Duke of Cambridge.

Creative Kate, who has a degree in the history of art, is a keen supporter of the arts as reflected in her first Patronages and volunteer activities since becoming Duchess of Cambridge. In January she became patron of the National Portrait Gallery and her first official solo engagement without husband William was at a Lucian Freud preview at the gallery in February this year.
 
She has also become a patron of the Art Room, a charity that works with children to increase their self-esteem, self-confidence and independence through art. The charity’s emphasis is on teaching life skills while encouraging children and young people to both relate and engage with each other.





The Borneo rainforest is one of the oldest rainforests in the world and the Duke and Duchess visited it during their Diamond Jubilee tour to South East Asia and the South Pacific.



The Duke and Duchess flew over this palm oil plantation on their way to the research station. These plantations are vital to the production of many products used in daily life, from cooking to biofuels.



The Borneo rainforest provides natural habitats for many species of birds and animals. Most notably the endangered Borneo Orangutan. The Duke and Duchess were fortunate enough to spot one during their short visit.



Mount Kinabalu is the highest point in Borneo, this image was taken by Kate as the couple flew to the Solomon Islands.



This picture was taken as Kate and Wiliam were travelling by car through the rain forest in Danum Valley in Malaysia and does not even begin to give a sense of the size of these jungle giants, which are truly one of Nature's most awesome sights.



This photo of a jungle clearing was taken by The Duchess during her and The Duke's private walk. In rare clearings, when the sunlight does shine though, it creates the most spectacular effect through the architectural structures of the trees and leaves.



This photograph was also taken on a private jungle walk. Every tree is itself a kingdom of creatures and plant life with a surrounding atmosphere of light and noise and humidity.

As with all her other talents so recently discovered, she managed never to demonstrate them once in the 10 year waiting period  Thinking

Mary's been playing at photographer for a long time already. She's hopeless at it too.

Here's another shot taken by The 'Duchess'

It seems Katie's handlers have no idea what to do with her anymore. Blink

If these pics are the best out of the ones taken by her I don't want to even imagine how bad the rest is. I'm sorry to say (for I had some hope she would be good at something) but there is not a hint of talent. She is definitely better in being photographed.

Let's just put it this way.........she's no Ansel Adams, or Art Wolffe.  The only thing good about those photos is the natural beauty of the landscape, but she didn't do anything super artistic with it.  So Waity is just an ordinary photographer - just like ME!

It's great that she took photographs, but why have these been released to the public?  Is this just another attempt by their public relations to find something -- anything! -- positive about her?

ITA! Really, who cares about her photos?? they lack any peculiar knack of their photographer, why people should be interested in them? because it's Kate who pushed the button?  Crap
