Welcome to my wrap up post for week 18 of our 52 week photo project. The theme for Week 18 was Letters in the environment, and it became necessary to keep all eyes peeled for ideas as we rode our bikes around the Hauraki Rail Trail in New Zealand. It took over my week and as we were travelling with friends,…

Geometry in living breathing colour

Geometry: Week 17 of 52 week photography project

What to do for Week 17 of our 52 week photography project where the theme was Geometry?  Especially when I’m not a huge fan of anything mathematical at the best of times?

Rosebud about to open in my garden

Wordless Wednesday: Rosebud

 Wordless Wednesday – also known as Worth a Word Wednesday As I’ve said many times before, I really enjoy spring time when the garden slowly but surely comes alive.
