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…

52 week photography project – Week 12: The Kitchen

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…

52 week photography project – Week 7: Lollies/sweets/candy

Source: Week 7: Lollies/sweets/candy For those of you following along at home here is Week  7 of our 52 week photography project, with the theme Lollies/sweets/candy.  My photo was extra hard as we were in the Australian outback at the time and lollies/sweets were a bit thin on the ground.  So I went with this photo of a natural sweet, bushtucker style,…

Wordless Wednesday – 29 March 2017

Wordless Wednesday! Start with crabapples and end with crabapple (and cinnamon) jelly! I will admit to cutting up some of these crabapples but not to producing this magnificent coloured jam despite my name on the jar!  That honour goes to my friend Cathy who is a domestic goddess. Enjoy your Wednesday whatever you have planned! Debbie 🙂 PS. Feel free to…

Just another ordinary day or something a bit special?

Another ordinary day or a bit special?  Five thoughts: Receive notification from WordPress of 5 year anniversary of blogging!  Not too keen on joining the Social Saturday bike ride group due to feeling tired and weather is a bit overcast,  but go anyway.  End up riding nearly 17kms, including hills, with the group, and feel much better for it! Decide…

Life’s too short not to have fun – Weekly Photo Challenge

Life’s too short not to have fun! Here is my ‘fun, cheeky and very pleased with myself’ face- it was the most fun I’ve had in ages and I think it shows. This week’s photo challenge asks for an image of fun. I can assure you that eating all this deliciousness was fun, so much so that I couldn’t resist the urge to…

Mornings are the best part of the day – Weekly Photo Challenge

Anyone for tea?This week’s photo challenge asks for an image of what a typical ‘morning’ looks like.  Every morning starts with a cup of tea in a mug when I’m at home, but as I’m visiting my parents at the moment, we use the lovely white cup and saucer set for the first of our numerous cups of tea a day.…

Meeting a blogging friend for real!

I have followed Desleyjanes’s blog , Musings of a frequently flying scientist, for ages – I’ve  admired her beautiful photos, her creativity, I’ve loved her stories, enjoyed her posts about Gidget her dog,  felt her initial pain when she moved from her family in Brisbane to Melbourne, smiled to myself when she started feeling settled in her new city, joined in…

The cherry on top was missing – Weekly Photo Challenge

This week, share an image of a finishing touch from your own life, a photo of a detail that makes a…

Pretty Breakfast

Pure Decadence

Pure decadence!  This is my second response to the weekly photo challenge prompt of Pure. A yummy way to start the day! “Pure” can convey wholesomeness, something undiluted, or simplicity. This was definitely not wholesome or simple but it was very decadent and delicious. It was also very pretty! Deb 🙂 My other post for this challenge is Pure Sydney…

Persimmons

Spare: country style

10 red Persimmons…… Here is a simple display of Persimmons found in my favourite local coffee shop Nest: Cinema/cafe/books I like the way these Persimmons are displayed in an elegantly simple, typically rural, no nonsense way; yet they still manage to look stylish in a ‘spare‘ minimalist way. Congrats to the Nest team for their creativity in all their displays of…

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…

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…
