Every day is an adventure – 79/365

A garden adventure! For some reason this reminds me of an ice cream cone, albeit a very colourful one! I'm not sure what this flower is but I do know that it's a bulb - if you know its name, please let me know. I'm still going well with my 365 day photo challenge and …

Every day is an adventure – 78/365

How pretty am I? Purple hasn't always appealed to me as a colour but I must admit that I'm warming to it. Do you like purple? I'm still going well with my 365 day photo challenge and am enjoying finding some everyday adventure to share. It is amazing how differently you see the world when you actively look …

They call me mellow yellow! I love yellow (at the moment) and this beautiful flower was just waiting for me to photograph it! I'm going well with my 365 day photo challenge and am enjoying finding some everyday adventure to share. It is amazing how differently you see the world when you actively look for beauty, adventure …

Every day is an adventure – 66/365

When every day life gets you down, have an adventure! I read an article in a newspaper recently that promoted the idea of seeing beauty in the every day - Day 64/365. We always seem too busy to notice the little things but it's these things that help us to slow down. I'm doing the …

Every day is an adventure – 52/365

A little piece of paradise is today's adventure! This gorgeous flower was in the garden at my parents-in-law and the sunny orange colour took my fancy.  It's called a bird of paradise. They are beautiful flowers and make me smile every time I see them. What a great adventure....going to paradise for the day! My daily …

ROY G. BIV – take 2

I enjoyed ROY G. BIV's  first visit so much I've done another post in his honour. Here's a link to the Daily Post's weekly photo challenge that has us all talking about the colours of the rainbow! Enjoy my selection of colour from my archives. Deb 🙂

Venturing into a brave new world

Well...today I did something I've never done before, went somewhere I've never been before and entered dangerous new territory... I attended my first Wedding Fair! As you no doubt know by now, I'm the Mother of the Bride (MOB) and my daughter S, Bride to Be, (B2B) is getting married to B, Groom to Be (G2B) in November this year.  B2B wasn't …

Black and white photography challenge (take 2): Day 2

My day 2 photo for the black and white photo challenge is a deliberately over exposed photo of (you guessed it) a sunflower!  Are you sick of them yet???  Please don't answer that question 🙂 I love the dramatic feel that the black and white starkness gives to this picture but again I feel I'm being sacrilegious …

Black and white photography challenge (take 2): Day 1

Jill at Jill's scene, from just across the ditch from me in NZ, has nominated me to participate in the Black and White 5 day challenge.  Some of you might remember that I did this back in January but I'm keen to give it another go!  Bear with me as I try to get my head around …

Weekly photo challenge: Rewards (are always worth waiting for)

I have been a bit obsessed with my sunflower lately and have taken photos of it at every opportunity.  Lucky for you, my loyal readers, I haven't shown you every photo I've taken (it might seem like it I know). This morning upon checking its progress, I saw that it had completely opened. Hooray!! When …

Sunflower progress report

My sunflower is opening up nicely, there's only a little bit left that's still shy. It all started with a seed, then a beautiful bud, and gradually, over a few weeks it has almost completely opened up.  The precision and artistry are so clever and amazing to observe. I've said it before and I'll say …
