Camp ovens cook damper and billy tea cooked over the campfire in Outback Australia

Waiting patiently

The wait was well worth it….. This week’s Photo Challenge asks us to share a snapshot that shows a sense of waiting.  On our recent trip to the Flinders Ranges in South Australia, we walked everyday, we camped out and we enjoyed the spectacular scenery. Life was easy, simple and slower paced than our usual lifestyle – it was bliss to…

Windmill in the outback

A silent sentinel of the past

A structure with a beauty of its very own…. These structures were to be seen everywhere on our recent trip to the Flinders Ranges in South Australia.  This windmill was abandoned but once upon a time it was a vibrant, useful and necessary structure in the outback, providing a valuable water source to a dry, arid land. I love that although…

Textures in a succulent

A curly-wurly succulent

The texture and beauty in a succulent… We consume photos through our eyes, but that doesn’t mean they can’t have a tactile element, too. I love the curly-wurly texture of this succulent, submitted for this week’s photo challenge. Although I’m not sure curly-wurly is a real description of anything, I just like the way it rolls off the tongue and it does…

Unusual photo of a child made into a sketch

Would you rather build a wall or a bridge?

Delta – capturing a moment in time
