Autumn begins and I am so ready!

That apple tree looks good down there but are you going to leave me to it?

Why has this picture placed so small? Must fiddle with that later or this will never get posted!… fixed it! 😉

It’s been over a year now since I last blogged. Life has either got in the way or I just haven’t felt like sharing. Autumn brings with it renewed colour and I just can’t wait to get back out there photographing. I have finally got myself a new L-Series lens and so doubling my number of fabulously lovely lens’s.

I really don’t care for the technical side of photography. It is all about the mood I can capture while looking through those lenses. While behind that lens I’m filled with feelings of joy and calculation as to what to set the camera on and the frustration that the camera can’t read my mind and I have to fumble with the dials, thus often missing the mark, as I’m just too slow to set it all perfectly the first time round. Ah, It’s all the fun of it really as the results can be quite unpredictable.

I’ve updated my blogs look and added a few blogs. Time for me to see what everyone else has been up to. Enjoy this time no matter where you are in the world.

Cheers

Hello and Happy November. We have been away and seeing more of our great country. From camping to staying with family. To holiday rentals and motels. We’ve experienced the lot.

From 80th birthday’s in Geelong, to cruising the Sydney Harbour to weddings on the beach at gorgeous Mollymook. What a frantic paced driving experience for two and a half weeks with three kids in the backseat surrounded by stuffed toys and pillows. It was all BRILLIANT!

I haven’t had time to process it all in my head but thought I needed to share just one little piece with you. Floriade in Canberra is once a year. They create a park of gorgeous flowers. We were there on the last weekend of it only to learn the bulbs are all torn out of the ground the week after the show and the park ceases to be full of vibrant displays until next spring.

Thanks Amie for showing us around.

Going places!

I have been going through my old photos and moving them to a new drive. I do feel slightly uncomfortable not having print-outs or negatives. I am guessing I am not alone in this feeling. Of course people take so many more photos these days and it would take a room to store mine all printed out by the end of my career… Maybe sooner? But they are my legacy! A visual diary of a life lived! Really interesting for others to study in a 100 years time. My descendants maybe?

Anyhow, I came across this one. I actually sold a version some years back to be used in a brochure! I love it. The girls are tweens now. Time just flies! But it is also relevant to our lives now as we currently pack to travel for a few weeks. Unlike so many other families we know we will be staying in Australia. Probably spending twice as much by doing this but we have some family commitments along the way!

Looking forward to leaving this wet-windy State I’m sorry to say. It hasn’t been an easy winter for the outdoor pursuits with a family in-tow here in Tasmania!

I will be in touch!

Enjoy your October!

I am so frustrated! I know I could have done better with my photos but do you think I could get my glass doors unlocked with one hand while they glided around my verandah in front of my nose! AARRGGHHH! So frustrating! One day I WILL get a shot I feel worthy of my wall! I WILL! They are my animal! The one that I feel privilege to see!

Not sure what is going on here?

Yellow-tailed Black Cockies. They must know me by now! This freaky lady that rushes out to say hi whenever they glide by!

Now honestly, I’m back on the path of discovery. What beautiful light we had tonight….. totally out of the blue when the weather has been so crap! That is raining and cold for at least 6 weeks now. I’m starting to think we live in the Antarctic region where in winter, the penguins never see the light of day! But today for the briefest of times it showed it’s face and I thought I would get daughter no. 2 in one of our merino tees to give our FB page a bit of a lift!

Was happy with the result and wanted to share!
