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

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). I also decided that they…

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 the floor was this fantastic…

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 the newlyweds…..they got married just…

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 jokes that you find inside…

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 more visible than ever before.…

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 so, funnily enough, I decided that…

Weekly photo challenge: Through my eyes

This week, take “eye” as your inspiration.  Come with me for a bike ride “through my eyes” – down the hills, up the hills, around the corners, on the flat…it’s a warm sunny morning but thankfully the flies aren’t too bad today.  Last week I felt like I was the little old lady who swallowed a fly…except I swallowed many…

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 busy city area and yet…
