Weekly photo challenge: rule of thirds (or not?)

I don't claim to be a photographer despite many of my posts using photos and my regular participation in The Daily Post's weekly photo challenges.  I do have talented relatives who are acclaimed photographers and I am envious of their skills.  I only ever photograph things that take my fancy for one reason or another, like the …

Oz Obituary

I don't often get upset on my blog but I am at the moment.  Why you may ask? Colleen McCulloch, a brilliant Australian author, passed away on 29 January 2015, aged 77.  It's sad enough when someone passes away but to make matters worse an Australian newspaper published an obituary that was absolutely dreadful.  My mother always taught me …

Back to work I go!

It's now officially the silly season!  The person who coined this phrase was spot on (apparently it was first noted in 1861).  Ay my first event for the season, I looked around at all these normal, sensible people suddenly transformed by wearing silly hats, telling silly jokes from their bonbons and playing with silly plastic …

In Copenhagen – feels like we are are on the set of a Danish TV show
