Fly on Flower

Fly lands on flower      Searching for the sweet nectar            But he’s not a bee   My first and quite pathetic attempt at a haiku – eek! But I like the photo. Unfortunately, his feet are disappearing into the flower due to my shallow depth of field but this…

So Not Ready

She drove as fast as she could. Her heart racing as fast as the car, the terrifying phone call replaying itself in her mind. As she checked the rear-view mirror, she lost focus for a second and the car swerved dangerously close the edge. She was close to tears, her mind working overtime, thinking of…

Despair

As the day draws to a close and the light begins to disappear, he climbs his rock and waits just near the edge. He shakes his head. What is he waiting for? His love has gone. Not coming back. No chance. But he can’t stop. This is their spot. This is where they found each…

The Prison of Her Heart

Rule of Thirds

For this week’s photo challenge, I have two photos for you. For the Rule of Thirds, the subject of your image is off-centre and it can work really well to have your background out of focus, creating a lovely booked effect. For more photo fun, come visit us at Lucile’s Photo101 Rehab Clinic, a great place…

Lorne is on the Great Ocean Road, which, according to Wikipedia is an Australian National Heritage listed 243 kilometres stretch of road along the south-eastern coast of Australia between the Victorian cities of Torquay and Allansford. Built by…

Symmetry yrtemmyS

This is not quite symmetrical, but kinda close. I took this at the beach in Lorne, Victoria, where we are at a very long conference. Photo was taken with my iPhone6 and I added the Clarity filter in Camera+. I have been so busy with this conference, I’ve only had a short amount of time…
