Spring blossoms in the garden for week 15 of 52 week photography project

Spring: Week 15 of 52 week photography project

Welcome to Week  15 of our 52 week photography project where the theme was Spring for us and for our Northern Hemisphere participant – Autumn. My special photo shows some of the beautiful spring blossoms on a tree in our garden.  The soft colour of them had me entranced as I looked up through the canopy and I remembered the various colours…

52 week photography project – Week 14: Still life with food

Welcome to Week  14 of our 52 week photography project where the theme was Still life with food.  I’m not usually one of those people who take photos of food and if I do, I rarely share it. I think it’s because I prefer to leave that sort of photo to the professionals who have all sorts of styling tricks of the…

I love the pattern that appears when looking down into the centre of the flower and although this tulip has almost finished and is fully blown, it is…

52 week photography project – Week 13: Self Portrait #2

Source: Week 13: Self portrait #2 Week  13 of our 52 week photography project had the theme of Self Portrait. We apparently will do a self portrait every few weeks and I’ve been assured it doesn’t have to be an actual selfie, but a photo that says and shows something of ourselves. Our first week was also a self portrait so it will…

Sunset in Fiji

Worth a Word Wednesday: A Fijian sunset

 Wordless Wednesday – also known as Worth a Word Wednesday Bula! Our final night in Fiji was bittersweet. The sunset on our final night in Fiji was spectacular, which sums up our whole trip really!! It was paradise.  The sunset was glorious but saying goodbye to our daughters was hard. We all live so far apart we don’t get many chances…

Source: Week 12: The Kitchen Week  12 of our 52 week photography project had the theme of The Kitchen. I don’t think I’ve ever taken a photo of my kitchen before, so it just shows there’s a first time for everything. We have a large kitchen which is part of our large sprawling open-plan house.  The house is just as comfortable for…

View through the window on a sunny spring day

What’s outside the window?

This morning the view from the kitchen window was sunny and bright so I thought I’d share it with you. The vase of spring daffodils look pretty, WonderWoman Debs is sitting on top of her jar of Vegemite surveying the world around her, the camellia tree is full of pretty pink flowers outside in the garden and all is well. …
