Every day is an adventure – 53/365

Sydney Harbour bridge climb

Now that was an adventure! An adventure from a while ago I'll admit, but oh what an adventure it was!  If you know anything about me (It's all about me) I hate heights,  edges and being out of control basically. Can you see me gripping onto the rail in  front of me despite being connected, I …

One Word Photo Challenge: Humid

It is definitely not humid here at the moment but I wish it was!! It's been freezing cold lately, but then I suppose that it is the middle of winter and I can't expect too much! This is a photo of The Water Palace in Jaipur (India).  We were lucky enough to visit a few …

Every day is an adventure – 51/365

Whip it! -  today's adventure These shrubs are beautiful and they are everywhere out near Uluru.  I presume they are made this way by the wind but if I'm wrong please feel free to correct me. What an adventure it was with all the red dirt, the big blue sky and amazing scenery! My daily …

Every day is an adventure – Day 50/365

I'm still standing

 I'm still standing - today's adventure This tree may look dead but I'm not too sure. It's still standing which in my book means that it's resilient if nothing else. I'd like to think that I too can be resilient. I have made it to 50 days in my Every Day series, so that says something …

Running and blogging over the age of 50 – a rare combination?

Waving while running

I recently found this very interesting site, Run Young 50, which talks about women from all over the world, who are over 50 and who also blog about running. My blogging (and running) friend Annie at Unsporty Women Can Run was featured on this list and I am thrilled to say that I'm now featured on it as …

Come closer!

As it's a wet, miserable wintery Sunday outside, I am doing lots of fun things inside today.  So far I've been reading, listening to music, drinking cups of tea, catching up on blogs, rearranging the clothes on the inside airers and making lots of lists of things I need to do. I have movies planned …

Every day is an adventure – Day 49/365

This is my adventure shot for the day because every adventure should start with shiny red shoes! A little friend turned 2 recently and her birthday party was a fun event with fairy bread, chocolate crackles, cake, pass the parcel and balloons....and lots of little people. I spotted these little shiny red shoes and fell in love with them. …

Droplets of Dew – closeup!

I do enjoy getting closeup photos but I can't always photograph them the way I want to, especially as I take my photos on my iPhone.    My sister and her husband take the most amazing macro photos! Then one day recently I was experimenting and managed to take this gorgeous shot of dew drops …

Yellow and fluffy Soft and pretty Golden delights in the green of the Australian bush. Wattle - the floral emblem that makes some people sneeze! Did you know that Wattle Day used to be September 1 but they moved it forward to August 1 because wattle started flowering earlier in various places.  This photo was taken in mid …

The photo …

Half light, half shade – split down the middle!

I have already submitted one post heaven and earth from the same area of the Australian outback and couldn't resist posting this one too. I love the diagonal dividing line of light and …
