Weekly photo challenge: The state of my mind

A picture which shows my State of Mind…as in all over the place! What another great theme for this week’s photo challenge! This week, let your inner world and the outside one converge in a photo. As I left on a big jet plane after spending a lovely week with my daughter, I snapped this shot of the bright lights below us.…

Mundane Monday – Tin roof rusted

Thanks to the B-52’s for this great line from ‘Love Shack’ – just perfect to use with my photo of a rusty tin roof!  On a recent bushwalk along the Hume & Hovell walking track, we came upon this old hut which was used by workers in years gone by. It was a classic piece of early Australian architecture and…

iPhriday – phoam roller phun

It’s Phriday and time for a photo from my phone. This morning started early – very early!  My gym class starts at 6am on Fridays, so I had to be up (and awake) early. This morning was Metafit – a 30 minute high intensity workout followed by 30 minutes of foam roller fun. Whoever named it ‘fun’ needs their head read!  You should…

Tumba-bloody-Rumba

Warning: this post is about the closest I’ll ever get to writing something political. Paint the town orange someone said – so we did. Orange streamers, ribbons and signs adorn every signpost and fence – orange being the colour of harmony. Get a celebrity on board to help get the message out there someone suggested – so we did. Watch this comedian put…

Mundane Monday Challenge – straight lines

Straight lines and blue sky This was the view that greeted me this morning as I returned from my run in the forest. I see these poles in the paddock every day but today they looked like they were all lined up, marching off into the endless blue sky. Mundane but yet beautiful in their own way! Mundane Monday Challenge is hosted by…

Weekly photo challenge: Time after time

Time after time The sun rises, the sun sets The ocean rolls on Driftwood finds its way onto the beach And photo opportunities present themselves. For this week’s photo challenge we are asked to think about time and portray it photographically. These photos were taken while I was on the beach, at sunrise, with a group of Rotary Youth Exchange…
