Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge: Challenger’s Choice – Night Photo

It’s the fourth Monday of the month which means it’s time for Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge – and this week it’s Challenger’s Choice. 4th Monday Challenger’s Choice (Pick One: Abstraction, Animals, Architecture, Food Photography, Night Photography, Objects, Panorama, Portraiture, Still Life, Street Photography, and Travel). I have chosen night photography so that I can share this great photo from Canberra’s Floriade Nightfest over the…

Weekly photo challenge: Changes (tulips)

I admit to having real trouble in trying to work out what to use for this week’s photo challenge with the theme of Change.  Lots of things have changed in my life over the years but how to capture these things?? The brief this week: …show us a change in progress. This can be done in one or multiple photos….Change is commonly defined as…

Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge: Black and White – sunroom

It’s time for Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge  and as it’s the third Monday of the month, the theme this week is Black and white. My sun-room is an absolute delight at this time of the year – it’s sunny, light, warm, cosy, comfortable, functional and it’s my go-to place, my hideaway, my cocoon. I have lots of lovely photos with clear blue…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Grid on grid action

I’m featuring photos of grid on grid action for this week’s Daily Post’s photo challenge  as the theme is…you guessed it … Grid. I must admit that I’ve gone a bit literal with this one! The sun is shining outside and my solar panels are working overtime as the sun worshippers they are. There are grids within the grid the closer you…

Every day is an adventure – 98/365

It’s all the little moments that make life a very big adventure! This photo was taken over the weekend and  shows Lynda, the winner of Tumba’s Fun 5 – a 5km fun run which was held in conjunction with the Tumbarumba Gym & Fitness centre’s Health Expo.  It’s also a photo of my massage therapist who kindly offered to hep me…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Monochromatic – Rock face

I’ve enjoyed this week’s Daily Post’s photo challenge  so much that I’m adding another post – something I rarely do! My earlier post is here – Monochromatic Magnolia in case you missed it. The theme for this week is monochromatic.  A powerful monochromatic image is composed of a gradient of a single color, and has an emphasis on texture and composition. This…

Every day is an adventure – 97/365

It’s all the little moments that make life a very big adventure! Only in my small town could you ride your bike to a fun run event, (plus markets and health expo at the local gym), leave your unlocked bike and helmet leaning against the wall and have it still there when you get back! Love living in this town…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Monochromatic Magnolia

This week, share with us your monochromatic images. Be calculating and creative in choosing your subject and focal point; resist the urge to simply take a photo of something with a single color range. I’m still not sure if this photo fits this week’s Daily Post’s photo challenge theme of monochromatic.  I decided to use my magnolia photo and played around…

Every day is an adventure – 96/365 – magazine adventure

Every day is as an adventure in my world – Women’s Running magazine ! This is very exciting – I replied to a request in a women’s running magazine recently, they were looking for women who took up running over the age of 40.  They asked for 100 words and a photo and I sent something in as I’ve enjoyed learning to run…

Every day is an adventure – 95/365 – my room with a view

Every day is as an adventure in my world – even when I’m lazing around looking at the view! Spring has sprung! My room with a view is the perfect place to relax. We always seem too busy to notice the little everyday things but I think it’s these things that help us to slow down and appreciate our lives more.…
