Deb’s World on tour – part 2 of 2

When I left you last time (Deb's World on tour part 1)  I was just heading off for a road trip to see my youngest daughter. I was staying with my parents for a week and mum decided a few days at the beach would be nice.  We would be able to see Eliza at the …

Tea Time #10 – a birthday treat

Birthday Party fun

What special birthday food does your daughter want for her 30th birthday? Going on past birthday experiences I can guess. In case you missed my post last week, my second daughter is turning 30 in a few days time - that means I will have two daughters in their thirties!! Luckily my youngest has a few …

A carpet of colour 

Carpet of colour

Have I told you before that I love autumn?  I think I may have mentioned it once or twice in my blog! I took this photo today - I just love the reds, oranges and yellows in what I call a 'carpet of colour'.  I also think that the nonchalant placement of the rake is …

Weekly Photo Challenge: A selfie in motion

Here I am taking a selfie while in motion on my bike! I love riding my bike and I love shadow shots so this photo says it all! I have also been called a humming bird on speed....read into that what you will in relation to motion. This photo is in response to this week's photo …

Monthly photo challenge: Changing Seasons 04

The Changing Seasons Photo Challenge is a great way of 'seeing' the seasonal changes in a specific area throughout the year. This is my fourth instalment of the monthly photo challenge instigated by Cardinal Guzman, where we are to take a group of photos of a similar location each month to see the changing seasons …

I wasn’t expecting that

Sarah 1985

Unconditional Love! Wasn't expecting that, by Jamie Lawson is my favourite song at the moment.  I know that it's a love song and the lyrics and sentiments are for a 'love interest' but I still want to use it as the basis of my post in response to Eclectic Corner #10 Unconditional love - photography, quotes …

Tea time #9

Time for Tea

It's Tea Time again! I have recently visited my parents and the spare room has a delightful little book all about Tea Time on the bedside table.  I took the opportunity to take note of some of the quotes in the book and offer them for your consumption at Justine's Tea Party. There are few …

Walk this way early birds!

I don't necessarily consider myself an early bird but I do love early morning runs/walks and usually on these outings I see the most amazing colours and light.   I try to capture them on my phone so that I can recall the beauty at a later date. My most recent picture is the steps to the beach …

Room with a view 

I took this photo last week at the beach quite by accident. The beach house has amazing views over the water and just seemed to stand out from all the other lovely houses. I love the clean lines and the starkness. What do you think? Black and white?    Or colour?   I'm very interested …

Swans afloat

Afloat, to me at least, means water of some sort. Today while I was out running around the lake, I saw this beautiful sight. Two swans serenely afloat on the lake, in the crisp morning light. I had to stop and take a photo! They look so calm and serene don't they? I liken myself to a swan …

A sad day

Today should have been the happiest day of their lives but it was the saddest day of all. You may have heard of this but just in case you haven't..... A young teacher went into her school last weekend to complete work for while she was to be away on her honeymoon. She was due …

Weekly photo challenge: blurred vision

 A throwaway shot, or purposefully unfocused? I took this photo last weekend at the Wedding Fair and had to retrieve it from my deleted album as I had dismissed it as too blurry.  The only editing I have done is to make it a black and white shot and now there's something about it that grabs …

First (over a certain age) to cross the finishing line!

I can run and smile at the same time!

"Keep going.... you're the first older person to finish!" Sweet words to hear as I huffed and puffed my way towards the end of the 5km. Obviously meant to encourage me, these sweet words spurred me on to the finishing line with a bit more gusto! I don't consider myself old but when I looked around …
