Every day is an adventure – 83/365

An inner city adventure! I love visiting the big smoke for a work adventure, as it takes me away from my rural, idyllic and quite isolated hometown for a few days and shows me a whole other world. This was snapped while having breakfast in a trendy, inner city cafe before the work day started. …

Come closer!

As it's a wet, miserable wintery Sunday outside, I am doing lots of fun things inside today.  So far I've been reading, listening to music, drinking cups of tea, catching up on blogs, rearranging the clothes on the inside airers and making lots of lists of things I need to do. I have movies planned …

Weekly photo challenge: blurred vision

 A throwaway shot, or purposefully unfocused? I took this photo last weekend at the Wedding Fair and had to retrieve it from my deleted album as I had dismissed it as too blurry.  The only editing I have done is to make it a black and white shot and now there's something about it that grabs …

Weekly photo challenge: rule of thirds (or not?)

I don't claim to be a photographer despite many of my posts using photos and my regular participation in The Daily Post's weekly photo challenges.  I do have talented relatives who are acclaimed photographers and I am envious of their skills.  I only ever photograph things that take my fancy for one reason or another, like the …

I enjoy taking photos while I'm out and about and sometimes I'm pleasantly surprised with the results.   This photo is one of those moments! The shaft of morning sunshine on the left of the photo gave me a nice boost when I saw it. I didn't realise I had captured it quite so well! In colour …

Can you guess what this is?

What do you think this is?  It's my first entry for the Photo 101 Rehab Clinic! Yesterday my husband alerted me to this 'weird' thing growing in our garden, saying that I might like to photograph it. His first question was "what do you think it looks like?" I replied that I thought it looked like …
