I close my eyes and see myself stepping out into the back garden. The patio roof is strewn with hundreds of fairy lights, in cool white, not the yellowy kind. It creates a magical glow even down to the sandstone tiles. There’s an eclectic mix of chairs scattered about in clumps and the huge table…Read More
If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change – Buddha. Photos taken with my Olympus OMD EM5. I thought it was time for some colour 🙂 For this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Fresh. x desleyjaneRead More
For last week’s Weekly Photo Challenge, I thought I would share with you some photos to show you some of the work I did at home over Christmas. I’m so late with this post, considering that this week’s challenge has already been released and I’ve seen some great posts for it! Over the holiday break, I…Read More
2015 Weekly Photo – New
For the weekly photo challenge – New. During the holidays, I did some painting around the house, including re-vamping my front door. It’s a very solid door, most likely original with the house, which I believe was built in 1980. The door is timber with a large lead-lined glass panel. A few years ago, I…Read More

Photo101(11): Pop of Colour [A Study in Pink].
I wish today’s theme had come before I started photographing my gnomes yesterday, they seem like the ultimate “pop of colour”. I had the theme in the back of mind all day and decided to do a study in pink (thank you, Sherlock). Those who know me well, know that I love pink, I have…Read More
Photo101Weekend2: Play With Light.
What a blistering hot weekend! One of the hottest on record, it was 38C yesterday and 42C today (that’s 100F and 107F)! I haven’t experienced temperatures anywhere near that in a long time. Consequently, our light is bright all day. I mostly followed the brief and took photos of a single location over the day –…Read More
I started this post yesterday when I was leaving for Sydney. I have a habit of leaving quite late if I travel on a Sunday. I usually drop my puppy, Gidget, at my parents’ house and have lunch with them before I go. I arrived at the airport at about 1:40pm for my 2:25pm flight…Read More
