That time when the bride wore white and so did the groom!

Weathering life As the Mathematician and I celebrate our 38th wedding anniversary, I thought back to how we’ve weathered life along the way. We both started out in our brilliant white outfits and haven’t looked back. I had been considering writing a post to offer advice to newly marrieds, my daughter among them, but I decided I don’t have any…

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…

52 week photography project – Week 13: Self Portrait #2

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…

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. I replayed the wedding and…
