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 …

There’s a castle around here somewhere!

In 2000, the Olympics were held in Sydney.  That's now 15 years ago! We left Australia on the first day of the games for a family trip to Denmark and England. At the airport in Sydney everyone was arriving for the games, as we were leaving the country - it felt really strange. Our three …

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

Sunroom on a cold morning

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 …

One foot in each camp!

I have been trying to write this post all week, it's been rattling around in my head, as things often do, until I can get it out. I've been suffering withdrawals and have felt lost and all adrift since I stopped my every day is an adventure project at Day 100. I had been aiming to …

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 …

Every day is an adventure – Day 100

It's all the little moments that make life a very big adventure! I have had a fun time playing around with a new editing app and ended up with this interesting take on a selfie. I have decided to take a break from my Every day is an adventure project for a little while.  I …

Every day is an adventure – 99/365 – more magnolias

Magnolia tree

It's all the little moments that make life a very big adventure - from little things, big things grow ! I love this time of year when my magnolia tree delivers.  It is a huge tree and full of flowers in all stages of life.  My Day 79 photo was taken just a few short …

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 …

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 …

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! …

Weekly Photo Challenge: Monochromatic Magnolia

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 …

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 …

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

View from sunroom

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 …

Every day is an adventure – 94/365

Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge: Nature

Magnolia bud

Sally D's Mobile Photography Challenge has Nature as the theme for this week. I've been taking lots of photos of nature lately, flowers, landscapes, sunsets, sunrises, skies  - it is such a great subject! My Every day photo project features lots of these photos as they inspire me so much. It's also helped by the fact that I …

Every day is an adventure – 93/365

Always choose the adventure! This is a very shy echidna - actually it's his backside - as he has his snout in the dirt digging for ants to eat. I was riding my bike the other day and noticed this echidna wandering along the fence line.  They are very private animals and tend to roll …

Every day is an adventure – 92/365

Let's have an adventure and ride off into the sunset together! I might not be able to run on my track but I can still ride! (See day 87 for the back story) If you'd like to see all my posts so far you can click here Every day photo project . As always it's good to …

Weekly Photo Challenge: Connected (with technology)

This week, show us how two (or more) things — people, objects, places — come together. The photo isn't the best but it was taken last night when two of my daughters were together in England and made a late night (our time) Face Time call to home.  It was such fun to see them …

Every day is an adventure – 91/365 – Father’s Day

With my dad in 2015

Happy Father's Day! It's Father's Day today so I have posted this lovely photo of us.  I was visiting with my parents recently and we had a few delightful outings together, this being just one of them.  I wish I lived closer to my parents but I know that we can connect very easily and …
