Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: The morning after

Happily ever after....the day after my daughter's wedding looked a bit like this... I couldn't sleep in despite the huge day we'd had, so I got up and wandered around the marquee picking up bottles, collecting glasses, enjoying the presence of the wild brumbies and kangaroos, not to mention the shaft of early morning light. …

Openhearted

open hearted

This is me being openhearted just for Hugh's photo challenge.  This week the theme is open.  I was visiting friends in Sweden a few years ago and this gorgeous heart structure was an unexpected find.  Apparently many people get married or renew their vows on the beach nearby - it really was a lovely thing to come …

Vintage themed party

Outfit

Hugh's photo challenge this week is about all things vintage. I was immediately reminded of my daughter's Vintage themed 30th birthday party a few years ago. I made the decision to attend the bash which meant travelling halfway around the world from Australia to England all by myself. It was the right decision. I had an amazing …

Keep your hat on!

under the heat

Hugh's photo challenge this week is all about hats. Well I'm here to tell you that I'm a hat and I want to share my limited view of the world with you. I'm here, I'm looking out at you but you may not realise it.  No one thinks of me as being able to do anything except …

Can you guess the season?

Hugh's photo challenge has Ronovan in charge this week with the prompt of season. To interpret as we see fit. So can you guess what season this is? I received my new 'Pins to Kill' tights in the mail earlier this week with 'Run Debbie Run' printed down the leg and I just had to take them out …

Group(ies)!

Hugh's photo challenge prompt for this week is group.  Recently we were away for a few days and went out for a Sunday afternoon drive to a favourite little beach town.  We came across this great group playing outside a cafe, so we found a seat, bought an ice cream and sat back to enjoy their …

Early morning light

Good morning!  It's mornings like this that make getting up early for a run worth all the effort.   I'm using this photo for Hugh's weekly photo challenge which this week is all about solitude. This photo says it all  - the world is quiet, the light is beautiful, the views spectacular and I'm all alone …

Looking through the gap!

Maintenance at the Opera House

Hugh's photo challenge this week is all about the gap. I love fences, the gaps and the views beyond.  I have chosen a few of my favourites fence shots to share -the last one was a bit tricky!  Taking a selfie as I climbed through the gap in the fence isn't as easy as it sounds …

Sweet!

Easter bunny cake

Easter Bunny Cake It's Easter and Hugh's photo challenge this week is all about things that are sweet.  I couldn't go past this photo (cue flashback) with 2 of my daughters at Easter time many years ago. Weren't they sweet?  I used to make a white rabbit cake every year when they were little. My mother in law …

Stay calm and look at this photo

Cycling and sailing around the Southern Dalmatian islands in Croatia a few years ago produced some amazing views.  It was also a great way to see some of the beautiful countryside as well as being a great adventure. When I saw Hugh's photo challenge this week with the prompt of calm, I immediately remembered this photo …

What’s behind you?

If you had a choice to use the hotel's fitness centre, (which just happened to be right opposite your hotel room) or go out into the city of Sydney for an early morning run/walk, what would you choose? I chose to go out into the city at the crack of dawn and left the delights …
