Run Melbourne

Run Melbourne 2016

The Run Melbourne event and I don’t have a good history.  I first entered the event in 2014 and was excited as I’d been in training for many months.  I raised funds beforehand for Parkinson's Disease as my father suffers from this insidious disease and was proud to help out in this way. Tragically my …

One foot in each camp!

One Word Photo Challenge: Foggy

Foggy view

A while ago I decided to drive to work via the scenic route, as it was a lovely sunny morning at my place.  This was the view along the way - I had descended into a completely different world! Needless to say it wasn't quite the view I was expecting. It's not much of a photo …

Bikini time!!

Colour is my best friend and rainbows are the most beautiful expression of colour - so it's no surprise that ROY G. BIV is a welcome visitor to my world! You may be asking yourself, as my husband asked me, who the heck is ROY G. BIV? I smirkingly replied (as if I'd known the …

Droplets of Dew – Changing seasons 05

Dew droplet

While having breakfast this morning, I looked outside and saw these droplets of dew sparkling in the early morning sunshine.  I felt compelled to walk out onto the wet dewy lawn to take some photos even though it meant I would be late for work! I took them (as usual) with my iPhone and am quite happy with how they have …
