Five Minutes with Felt Ball Posies – RegularRandom

A different kind of posy this week for RegularRandom! Sorry for my absence, I have some good reasons, which I will explain in a later post. 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…

Five Minutes with Succulents and Felt

I have become quite addicted to Etsy, mainly to feed my planner habit (see Instagram @desleyjane_plans). I am always on the lookout for props for my flatlay shots that I do for product photography. I like things like marble, succulents (Pantone’s colour of the year is Greenery), gold, pink, and anything fun and colourful. So…

Image Reboot #6

You may have heard that Desley has been busy preparing her next move to Melbourne, and for that she had to reduce her blogging activities. So, please bear with me, as I am hosting the sixth installment of our Image Reboot – a partnership between Desley’s Musings of a Frequent Flying Scientist, with yours truly…

Image Reboot #5

Welcome to the fifth instalment of our Image Reboot – in partnership with Lucile’s Photo101 Rehab Clinic. You can find the previous ones by searching for #imagereboot in the Reader. As enthusiastic photography enthusiasts, we wanted to include some editing techniques here – I installed Lightroom about a year ago and have taught myself the basics of…

Roy G. Biv (WPC 2)

A just had to add a second post with photos featuring all of the colours of the rainbow in each photo for the Weekly Photo Challenge. This was fun to do 🙂 x desleyjane

Roy G. Biv (WPC 1)

My timing seems to be quite bad. This week’s photo challenge (ROY G. BIV) is all the colours of the rainbow (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet) and last week I published a post of some Rainbow Roses, which would have fitted this theme perfectly. So, I pottered about at home this morning and came…

Pop Art Cactus

When I was out doing Gidget’s Photo Shoot in my garden, I took a few shots of some potted cactus and decided to have a little play with them in LightRoom. In the next ImageReboot post, I will be talking about White Balance for the first time, and I’ve spent quite a bit of time…

Sunset in Sydney

When I go to Sydney, I usually catch the last flight home. Mostly because it’s quite a cheap flight and saves the company some money and I also want to stick with my preferred airline. It works out nicely that Sydney city is on my way to the airport so I can stop off and…

Strawberries and Cream Cake (TeaTime#11)

My family visited me today. Dad mowed the lawn while mum and I trimmed the hedge on the driveway and did some tidying in the garden. I made this cake this morning for us to have for afternoon tea and thought that it would make a nice addition to Justine’s Tea Party. It’s a Strawberries and…

Amsterdam – Party Central

This is my final post in my Amsterdam series, a fact which makes me very sad 😦 I will have to go back!!!!  🙂 Before I arrived, Lucile warned me that the city turns orange and goes into party mode for King’s Day and what a fantastic coincidence that my work trip to the UK…

Amsterdam City in Living Colour

I hope you aren’t getting too sick of my Amsterdam posts 😉 Today is the city in glorious colour. As I have said, I was there for 50 hours. This was over three separate days and these photos span all three days. The first day was overcast, day 2 was glorious and day 3 was…

Lucile’s Red Bridge

  Yesterday, I posted Blogger Babes in London – a wonderful meet up between Justine from Eclectic Odds n Sods, Lucile from Bridging Lacunas and myself. It was such a wonderful day with truly remarkable people! When I left Justine’s, I travelled to Amsterdam and was met by the lovely Lucile and her husband and I…
