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…

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…

Magnolia unfurling into spring

Worth a Word Wednesday: Unfurling

 Wordless Wednesday – has been renamed ‘Worth a Word’ Wednesday simply because I couldn’t stick to the rules of NO WORDS 🙂 Unfurling into spring Every year I think I take a similar photo to this one.  I try to capture the magnolia flowers unfurling- I love Spring and I love our magnolia tree.

In the frame – Weekly Photo Challenge

View from the inside In this week’s photo challenge, Nancy asks us to look at things a bit differently. Whether it’s through an actual picture frame, a few stalks of grass, or even the spokes of a bicycle tire, find an alternative frame to the world around you and share what you see! I’ve taken this one  literally. While relaxing in my sunroom…

Mundane Monday Challenge – let’s light up the world!

Solar lights are very clever but not something I tend to photograph very often. I decided I’d feature one of my humble, yet colourful, solar lights to show it in a different light for Mundane Monday this week. I just love the crackle texture of these lights. The Mundane Monday Challenge is hosted by PhoTrablogger and is a challenge created to find beauty in almost everything.…

Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge: Macro (more spring)

Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge has Macro as the theme for this week. I’m very surprised at the quality and clarity that the humble phone can produce.  I didn’t do very much editing on this photo but did take quite a few shots trying to capture what I have dubbed ‘the tendrils’. I’m not quite sure if I’ve done this right but regardless,…
