Not so Wordless Wednesday – 1 March 2017

Not so Wordless Wednesday! Enjoy these beautiful sculptures from the William Ricketts Sanctuary in the Dandenong Ranges near Melbourne I know it's supposed to be wordless Wednesday but....I can't help but share these words from the park's site, just in case I have sparked your interest: Hidden away in a dense inlet along the winding Mt Dandenong Tourist …

Not so manic Monday

Now that I'm not working anymore 🙂 Mondays don't have that awful Manic Monday feel to them - in fact every day is pretty cruisy. This morning I had an early morning walk booked in with a friend and this gorgeous view was on display from my front door. I love the layers of rippling red, …

Ambience on a summer morning – Weekly Photo Challenge

Tumbarumba Creekscape

Ambience: the character and atmosphere of a place I love this view of what's known in our little town as 'The Creekscape'.  I think it shows character and atmosphere very well.  It also gave my mood an uplift!

We were celebrating Father's Day at a local vineyard and …

An echidna drops by for a scratch

I hope you enjoy my short video of this echidna, who stopped by to visit us this morning. He wandered around our verandah before wedging himself under this table and proceeded to scratch himself as if no-one was watching!  We watched him through the window before I had the great idea of trying to video him. …

Therapy via Instagram

The last few weeks haven't been much fun for our family.  I won't go into details, suffice to say it's been hard. But I have learnt that therapy comes in many ways - one of mine happens to be Instagram. Despite what's been happening I like to think that I'm a positive person and just …

What do you do with your photos?

What you do with the photos you take?   I hope that's not too personal a question! This year I decided to make a photo book of all my Instagram photos taken throughout 2015. We use Blurb books to make our photo travel holiday books and we love having them to show friends and relatives.  I have also …
