Regular Random – Five Minutes with Dumplings

OMG I love dumplings. I think I could have them for every meal. Welcome to RegularRandom – sorry I’m a day late, but today (Monday) feels like Sunday since it’s a Public Holiday here for the Queen’s Birthday. Let’s get the rules out of the way: choose a subject spend 5 minutes photographing that subject…

Regular Random – Five Minutes with Orange Tulips

Defined by Flight – a Mini Life Update. 

I feel like I have been defined by flight. By Qantas. That Platinum card (actually it’s down to Gold now). I’ve been traveling for work since 2005. I left my job in the lab on a Wednesday morning and flew to Singapore that afternoon for sales training. And I haven’t really stopped flying since. To…

Cockatoos Gathering

I’ve always loved cockatoos. They have such fun personalities. We had one when I was a kid. We also had a galah, which being pink and grey, was my favourite. We saw these during our touristy trip into the Dandenongs just outside Melbourne. x desleyjane

Reflections of a Man and a City.

These photos were taken at Eureka SkyDeck in Melbourne. Eighty-eight floors up and looking out over my beautiful city. I was putting my camera away when I noticed this reflection. I was standing close to the glass and my brother was behind me, about 15 metres away and I was struck by how cool it…

The Twelve Apostles

My family visited me in Melbourne a couple of weeks ago and we took a few trips, doing the touristy things. One was a trip to The Twelve Apostles, which I have always loved. I went there last in 2004 and I went there when I was about 5 years old. This time, the weather…

Five Minutes with Felt Ball Posies – RegularRandom

For now, let’s get up close and personal with these GORGEOUS felt balls from The Felting Dorcas on Etsy. If you would like to join our #RegularRandom event, please…

Balloon Bursting Fun!

A couple of weekends ago, one of the photography groups that I’m a member of, organised a balloon bursting event. They’ve run it a couple of times and it fills up first, but this time I managed to get a spot. And I am so glad I did! It’s an exercise in fast-shutter speeds and…

Flatlay Love

I am fairly obsessed with flatlay photography. I recently got this new backdrop and this gorgeous wreath and so I spent an afternoon photographing it. This post is the reason why I couldn’t eat my lemon meringue pie until the next day! Sorry if I am a little absent this week and next – my…

Five Minutes with Lemon Meringue – RegularRandom

This is my RegularRandom, where we choose an object or a scene and spend only 5 minutes shooting it. It makes us think about angles and light and composition and moving your body rather than the subject. If you want to join in, please do! Tag your post with RegularRandom and link back to this…

Wanderlust

Well this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge seems made for me. I am, after all, a frequent flying scientist.  We are asked to share a photo that represents travel and wanderlust. There are two things that I do on planes – one is write and the other is take photos of the clouds. There is something…
