Why a change is as good as a holiday

Mt Kosciuszko, Australia, walk, hike, me

A change is as good as a holiday - well so they say! But as my life is now one big holiday I have to look elsewhere for my inspiration to change things up. Changing it up: I did just that earlier in the week, when I participated in a blogging group activity looking for …

iPhriday sunset

sunsetting colours

While driving home from a Rotary meting in an another town last night I had this most gorgeous sunset keeping me company.  It seemed to be so big and endless that I had to find a place to pull off the road so that I could capture it. I haven't used any filters on it as …

iPhriday – what a view!

Sydney Harbour Bridge from the air

What a spectacular view, even if I do say so myself! I took this photo on my iPhone as we flew over Sydney into the airport on Friday (yesterday) so thought I'd share it with you all,  seeing as though it was iPhriday. I had been to see my parents up north and this was …

iPhriday – road trip

We're on a road trip for the weekend!  We're off to Melbourne with the newlyweds to collect the official wedding photos - it just so happens that the photographers are my highly talented sister and her husband and it's my birthday weekend so I'm expecting to be spoilt! Bring it on 🙂 Here's a pic of …

iPhriday selfie

This is a photo of me taken this afternoon sitting in the afternoon sunshine on my deck after a hard day at work  - I'm feeling relaxed and happy because it's FRIDAY and the weekend is here again. I don't take very many selfies (as you can tell by seeing my arm's reflection in my glasses) …

Hello iPhriday

I've decided to join in with Lisa from GrayDaysandCoffee for iPhriday where she likes to share photos taken with her mobile phone, on a Friday, rather than using her usual fancy, shmancy photography gear.  You can see Lisa's posts by using the link above - she is a very accomplished photographer. I always use my iPhone for my photos so …

Weekly photo challenge: New – 2015 is a blank canvas

A new year ahead with unlimited potential just like a blank canvas, not a cloud in sight, the sky is the limit... are there any other clichés I could have used for this photo? If you have any others just leave me a comment 🙂 This week's weekly photo challenge is new. Possibility. Opportunity. Potential. As …

Police, fire or ambulance?

A Big Decision  What a decision I had to make - police, fire or ambulance? The triple O operator couldn't advise me, she said I had to decide which was more appropriate. I chose police. How ironic... I work in a correctional facility and today I was the one locked in, luckily for just a …

After the storm

Late afternoon sunshine on the paddocks after the storm. The light was beautiful and so bright! PS: I'm really missing my Photo101 connections!  Anyone else having withdrawals? I've also just updated my blog layout with a new theme.  Let me know what you think!

Photography 101 wrap-up: The End!

The pets!

What can I say? On top of being busy enough with work and a life, I embarked on the Photography 101 challenge of posting a photo every day for November (except on weekends). The hosts of Photo101 gave us a daily theme, helpful tips to accompany the prompt and sent us out to take (or find …

Feeling triumphant!

Photography 101 has been a great month-long challenge. I am triumphant that I have lasted the distance and managed to complete each daily challenge.  As I said in yesterday's post I feel I have learnt new things and from now on will think much more before I go to take a photo. It's been quite …
