Weekly photo challenge: A gathering – of tea pots and family?

Awkward portrait at Christmas

Document a gathering and share your interpretation.... This is my interpretation of a gathering for this week's photo challenge.  I love a good cup of tea and at a recent gathering we noticed that the tea pots looked like they were having their very own meeting. (Apologies for the poor photo quality of this one). …

iPhriday – what a view!

Sydney Harbour Bridge from the air

What a spectacular view, even if I do say so myself! I took this photo on my iPhone as we flew over Sydney into the airport on Friday (yesterday) so thought I'd share it with you all,  seeing as though it was iPhriday. I had been to see my parents up north and this was …

Mundane Monday Challenge – look down!

I was in Melbourne on the weekend and while out shopping in the city we walked through some of the grand old arcades.  They are beautiful old buildings - well old by Australian standards anyway. This particular one had Christmas trees, decorations and sparkly curtains hanging from the roof which took your eye upwards. But on …

iPhriday – road trip

We're on a road trip for the weekend!  We're off to Melbourne with the newlyweds to collect the official wedding photos - it just so happens that the photographers are my highly talented sister and her husband and it's my birthday weekend so I'm expecting to be spoilt! Bring it on 🙂 Here's a pic of …

3 quotes, 3 day challenge…with a twist – day 3

It's Day 3 of the 3 quotes, 3 day challenge which Miriam at Out an' About nominated me to join. I did tell her that I would put my own twist on the challenge and she was fine with that. It's been fun! So as you may know already I decided that instead of actual quotes I would use …

Mundane Monday Challenge – a sad, old house

I passed this sad, old house while out riding my bike the other day, cycled by, then turned around and went back to take a photo.  It really appealed to me some reason. It obviously isn't loved anymore but it's still standing (just).  The front paddock has just been cut for hay and so it was much …

3 quotes, 3 day challenge…with a twist – day 2

As I posted yesterday, Miriam at Out an' About nominated me to join the 3 quotes, 3 day challenge and  I thank her for thinking of me. I did tell her that I would put my own twist on the challenge and she was fine with that. I sometimes think differently to other people and …

3 quotes, 3 day challenge…with a twist – day 1

OK - are you ready for this? Miriam at Out an' About nominated me to join the 3 quotes, 3 day challenge, I thank her for thinking of me. I enjoyed her posts and her selection of quotes especially her Day 3 post. I decided, while out at a Christmas party last night,  that as …

iPhriday selfie

This is a photo of me taken this afternoon sitting in the afternoon sunshine on my deck after a hard day at work  - I'm feeling relaxed and happy because it's FRIDAY and the weekend is here again. I don't take very many selfies (as you can tell by seeing my arm's reflection in my glasses) …

Mundane Monday Challenge – whatever floats your boat!

I was going to delete this photo as it seemed a bit 'boring' but then I thought of the peacefulness it exudes and how it may just be a good candidate for the Mundane Monday Challenge as hosted here by PhoTrablogger.  There are links to other Mundane Monday posts as well. This shot was taken in a …
