Weekly photo challenge: Fuzzy around the edges – abstract

I clearly remember taking this photo last year – I was experimenting with trying to get closeup shots and it didn’t turn out quite as I wanted it to, but I kept it just in case it could be used sometime down the track.  And its time is now! Just in case you can’t tell what it is, it’s a…

iPhriday – coffee art

It’s Phriday again – here’s some coffee art I took this photo on my phone while we were out for breakfast in the city recently. I don’t take too many foody type photos but I’ve been very surprised about how well my post for the Weekly Photo Challenge Dinnertime has been received.  Although it’s about food, it doesn’t actually have a photo of…

Group(ies)!

Hugh’s photo challenge prompt for this week is group.  Recently we were away for a few days and went out for a Sunday afternoon drive to a favourite little beach town.  We came across this great group playing outside a cafe, so we found a seat, bought an ice cream and sat back to enjoy their chilled out sounds.

Contemplation – Week 8: Who are you going to call?

Hello! I have been busy contemplating desleyjane’s latest prompt from her Kikki.K, A Sentence a Day journal.   This week the prompt is: Who do you want to talk to right now?

Let me ask you a question – out of 10 how would you rate your level of happiness?   This question is posed throughout the book as Helen interviews relevant people for…

Weekly photo challenge: What happens after dinner?

What are they all queuing for? As we sat eating our delicious dinner in Sydney’s Chinatown, we watched a never ending queue ebb and flow.  We had no idea what it was everyone was queuing for. Despite moving quite briskly, the queue never seemed to get any shorter.  We were intrigued and after dinner we wandered over to see what…
