Beautiful Brisbane – July 2016

I’m a little late for Cardinal’s Changing Seasons. I did almost all of 2015 but then moved to Melbourne and the time never seemed right to start again. I visited Brisbane in July for work, but also stayed on a weekend, so I got some shots that I’d love to share. My previous Changing Seasons posts…

Deconstructed Flower – 2

I think we started something when Julie and I “deconstructed” a rose at her studio a few weeks ago. You can find that post here. I have to warn you that there are quite a few photos in this post but I just couldn’t bear to leave them out. So, off I went to the…

Macro Garden Series – 23

What fabulously delicate little orbs! Shot at the Royal Melbourne Botanical Gardens. Olympus OMD EM5, 60m macro. x desleyjane

Bottles and Bubbles

Another set of shots from our Still Life Workshop at Julie Powell‘s studio. This was fun. We shot on a mirror with a white canvas behind the mirror. It’s a bit of work to get all the parts in the right place at the right time, but the payoff is awesome. I brought out the chemistry…

Contemplation – Week 19

We’re back again for another Contemplation – where I share with you a prompt from my Kikki.K A Sentence a Day journal, and invite you to share you response along with me. The prompt for today is a fun one, not too deep: What’s your favourite cliche? Ha! I love cliches. I have a friend…

When Life Hands You Lemons….

These juicy lemons were shot on black perspex and I used my macro lens (I’m such a sucker for macro, as you know). And just for fun: x desleyjane

Macro Garden Series – 22

Such a bizarre flower – I have to call upon my botany experts in the blogosphere to tell me what this is. Shot at the Royal Melbourne Botanical Gardens. Olympus OMD EM5, 60m macro. x desleyjane

Deconstructed Flower – 1

I really want to first off mention this wonderful post from my dear Lucile in Amsterdam. She has sent me some wonderful wishes for my day today.  I’ve mentioned that I recently attended a Still Life Workshop with Julie Powell in her fabulous studio. One of the things Julz wanted to do was to slice up…

Contemplation – Conversations

Hello Fellow Contemplators – I hope you’re all well. Sorry it’s been a little while since our last Contemplation. It’s Sunday here in Melbourne and I’m sitting down to prepare a few blog posts for the next few weeks and I hope to get a few contemplations done while I’m here. Flipping through my A…

Morning Light

The Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Morning. Of course, this is not my usual morning, I wish I was that organised. This is from a still life workshop, hosted by the lovely Julz (Julie Powell). We had a fantastic day, with many more photos to come! And inspired by my blogging friend Susan Rushton, who posted…

iPhriday – Keeping the Colour

Hello everyone! I feel like I have been away for so long! I have been super busy with work and also sick – not sure what’s wrong, we’re looking into it. But I missed you guys and thought I would share this photo with you – I snapped it outside the doctor’s office yesterday. Given…

Macro Garden Series – 21

I can tell you right now that my Dad would be horrified that these were planted in the botanical gardens. Lantana is a nasty weed on sugar cane farms. I still love the delicate little flower heads and the wonderful colours. Shot at the Royal Melbourne Botanical Gardens. Olympus OMD EM5, 60m macro. x desleyjane  …
