Letters in the environment – Week 18 of 52 week photography project

Welcome to my wrap up post for week 18 of our 52 week photo project. The theme for Week 18 was Letters in the environment, and it became necessary to keep all eyes peeled for ideas as we rode our bikes around the Hauraki Rail Trail in New Zealand. It took over my week and as we were travelling with friends,…

Geometry in living breathing colour

Geometry: Week 17 of 52 week photography project

What to do for Week 17 of our 52 week photography project where the theme was Geometry?  Especially when I’m not a huge fan of anything mathematical at the best of times? I will admit that I really struggled with this week’s theme and just couldn’t get my head around it, despite my mathematician husband declaring that geometry is all around…

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.

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…

Source: Week 13: Self portrait #2 Week  13 of our 52 week photography project had the theme of Self Portrait. We apparently will do a self portrait every few weeks and I’ve been assured it doesn’t have to be an actual selfie, but a photo that says and shows something of ourselves. Our first week was also a self portrait so it will…

We have a large kitchen which is part of our large sprawling open-plan house.  The house is just as comfortable for…

Magnolia in black and white for Photographer's choice 52 week photography project

52 week photography project – Week 11: Black and White

Source: Week 11: Black and White I have written before how much I love Spring, the flowers, the colour, the new life and in particular my magnolia tree. I always take copious shots hoping for one that’s just right. So you can imagine how wrong I felt turning this one into black and white for Week  11 of our 52 week…

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…

52 week photography project – Week 9: The letter D

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…
