It had been so long since she’d been on a plane. And years since her last long haul flight. She had forgotten the discomfort of sitting in the same place for so long. But she’d also forgotten the quiet, the isolation. Even sitting next to someone, it was almost a separate experience. They had shared…Read More
Aren’t all my posts just my opinion? I’m supposed to critique something or give my opinion on a topic. I don’t like critiquing things (except punctuation and grammar of course – I love that!) but I do have a lot of opinions about a lot of things. Today though, I think I’ll discuss this writing…Read More
Some Context for the Cake
I shared images of Chocolate Cake for this week’s #RegularRandom a few days ago and my friend Meg of Snippets&Scraps inspired me to show you the context of the shoot. Take a look at her post featuring some magical ice patterns. I was creating a planning session – sure I was “planning” to eat the…Read More
My Writing Space.
Separate to this post, we are also asked to ask YOU for ideas on what to write about. So tell me? What would you like me to write about? Any particular genre or style or topic? Right now, I’m typing this at my desk, in my home office. This hasn’t been my “normal” writing space…Read More
Wherever I Lay My Hat (or iPhone)
For The Daily Post’s Writing Course : Finding Everyday Inspiration. Today, we’re tasked to write a post based on a One-Word Inspiration. They gave us six words: hope, regret, home, choice, secret, abundance. I chose Home. I have many places that I call home. My parents live in Central Queensland, so that’s definitely home. Home is…Read More

Thank goodness for Julz or I might never get any photography done these days! This is another series from an afternoon in her studio. We were immersed in darkness, with nothing but Julie’s coveted light wand and the faint glow from our camera screens to show us the way. What fun we had! Here is…Read More
I love to play with photo-editing apps on my iPhone. I took this photo during my shoot for my last post and then opened it in Pixlr to add the Silk overlay effect and a frame. Next, I tried a new app called Whitagran to add the text. Do you believe that good things are…Read More

Playing With the Moon.
I came home late one night last week and noticed the moon looking amazing. The night before that, it was covered in clouds. The first time I tried photographing the moon (here) was the Blood Moon and it was ok, but not great. So I was excited to try again. Then, I decided to play…Read More
The Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge this week asks us for our Inspiration – what makes us get up and go each day, makes us happy. Of course, there are a number of things – family, friends, missG, nature, so many things that are inspirational, or that motivate us to get up and DO something.…Read More
