52 week photography project – Week 10: Photographer’s Choice

Source: Week 10: Photographer’s Choice I found this week quite hard, as it was up to each of us to choose a photo! It was much more difficult than I thought it would be.   Isn’t it funny how we can get thrown by simple things – like having too much choice?? So if you’re following along at home here…

Source: Week 9: The letter D Here is the photo I didn’t use for this week’s 52 week photo project.  I’ve called it Debbie and the Daffodils as I figured I could get two D’s for the price of one! I love the fact that Spring has sprung down here, with the daffodils bobbing their pretty yellow heads, the magnolia…

Waiting patiently

The wait was well worth it….. This week’s Photo Challenge asks us to share a snapshot that shows a sense of waiting.  On our recent trip to the Flinders Ranges in South Australia, we walked everyday, we camped out and we enjoyed the spectacular scenery. Life was easy, simple and slower paced than our usual lifestyle – it was bliss to…

Windmill in the outback

A silent sentinel of the past

A structure with a beauty of its very own…. These structures were to be seen everywhere on our recent trip to the Flinders Ranges in South Australia.  This windmill was abandoned but once upon a time it was a vibrant, useful and necessary structure in the outback, providing a valuable water source to a dry, arid land. I love that although…

Textures in a succulent

A curly-wurly succulent

The texture and beauty in a succulent… We consume photos through our eyes, but that doesn’t mean they can’t have a tactile element, too. I love the curly-wurly texture of this succulent, submitted for this week’s photo challenge. Although I’m not sure curly-wurly is a real description of anything, I just like the way it rolls off the tongue and it does…
